You really think he'll end up outside the top 5? Who's going to leap over him? Tsonga? Ferrer? Berdych? Hahahahaha. Remember that clay is only a small part of the year and on grass/hardcourt he is better than everybody outside the top 4. Open your eyes. He's stayed in top 4 for the past 4 years and will continue to do so for a long time.

I can also go to Mars. It's possible but it doesn't mean it'll happen. Same as Murray and #1.

Re: Murray : "I can still become the best in the world this year"

Quote:
Andy Murray Will Forever Be Stuck in Last Place in the Top Four

Regardless of the Ivan Lendl influence, Andy Murray will not climb any higher on the ranking ladder—forever stuck at No. 4.

That is, unless one of the top three retires.

Currently 24 years of age, soon to be 25, Murray has been standing on the precipice of Grand Slam-hood for several years. Every new season brings inquiries—"Will this be the year that Andy Murray finally breaks through and wins that first major?"

Since 2008, the chances have come and gone, always with the same result. At the big moments, Murray sinks back behind the baseline and waits for the game to come to him instead of marching forward and seizing it.

When you play not to lose, then meeting those players in finals who stretch to win matches, Murray comes in second.

Ivan Lendl has stood in Murray’s shoes. He realizes from experience that it only takes that first slam title to open the floodgates, but there is not much Lendl can do—just as there was not much Mark Petche, Brad Gilbert or Miles Maclagan could do to boost Murray over that last hurdle.

The talent is there.

But Murray is primarily a defensive player, and when threatened, relies on counter-punching and defensive scrambling—all the while knowing his tennis life depends on offensive aggression.

Murray will be the Miloslav Mecir of this current crop of tennis greats, and like Mecir, Murray will go through his career slamless.

I agree, defensive players with no FH just can't get to N1 in this era. Murray is more consistent than the rest, but not better than the best (top3) & others.

His only chance is on the senior tour.

Murray will never be the best or world number 1 in his life.Probably wont win a Slam

Congrats to Roger Federer on his 17th record breaking GS title and becoming the best player that ever played on grass and breaking number 1 record.You deserve it Roger

Personally speaking, I'd love to see a different face with a GS trophy, be it Murray's. He's disappointed all too often though that I prefer to make fun of him so I don't raise my expectations unnecessarily.

bro, I hear ya. Murray is (after Nole) my favorite player. I really hope MTF will explode when Andy wins his first major . meanwhile, I don't have any problem with a good sense of humor

Re: Murray : "I can still become the best in the world this year"

murray has only 3 problems:

1. he has 3 all time greats who are ahead of him. that is just the harsh reality for all of them actually. how do you deal with these 3 sharks -- clay warrior, the swiss assassin, and the great serbian slayer.

2. lacks a dominating forehand

3. testicular fortitude. he needs to work on that.
