Re: Murray winning 1st slam vs Djokovic winning Roland Garros

Unless Murray wins on sunday, I would say Novaks RG (next year). Or maybe Murray can win AO next year. But this is just pure speculation

Re: Murray winning 1st slam vs Djokovic winning Roland Garros

Djokovic clearly cant beat Nadal in RG, so who would he hope could defeat Nadal on his way to the final?

Murray got a better chanse, he was very close beating Novak in his favorite slam (Australia), I would bet on him in Wimbledon final but I think Tsonga will beat him in SF.

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.

He can't? I will just say: 8 consecutive games against Rafa in Rg final. If he can repeat his game from the 3rd set of RG final, he (I will not say will) could beat him.

Re: Murray winning 1st slam vs Djokovic winning Roland Garros

It's possible for Murray to do it this month, or in two months or early next year. Djokovic has to wait for another year for another crack at it. So, it's clearly Djokovic.

Guess I'm just an optimist.

Anyways, think Murray will probably win a slam first (AO '13?)

Re: Murray winning 1st slam vs Djokovic winning Roland Garros

Murray will never win a grandslam, so Djokovic winning RG is the correct answer, as he is the clear cut second best player on clay and is a Nadal lapse/injury from being favorite in Paris.

Re: Murray winning 1st slam vs Djokovic winning Roland Garros

Novak will win RG next tine out, i believe he would have won it this time if the match had contiuned that day. So will Murray win W,Us or AO before then?

I think so yes...

Go Andy!

So very very proud to be a fan of Mr Andy Murray Wimbledon Champion 2013

Decided to bump this thread since Murray's Olympic win to see if opinions had changed any.

I'll take Murray on this although I am certain Novak Djokovic will win multiple RG titles.
