Who cares? The other recent 1 slam wonders I can think of (Ferrero, Moya, Gaudio, Johansson, Roddick*, JMDP) have done pretty much sod all outside of their 1 golden moment, where as Murray has already proved he is not there by luck alone as this was his 5th crack at it. Hence I don't think anyone can realistically say this was just a lucky tournament.

I don't think Andy is going to win loads of slams purely because the competition is too tough and his style of play is insanely physically demanding. However, I do think he will win another and assuming he stays free of major injuries he will probably have 4 or 5 by the time he retires.

*with the exception of Roddick, who IMO has also proved he was not just a lucky 1 hit wonder... if it wasn't for Federer he would be a 4 or 5 time Wimbledon champ to add to that 1 USO win.

JCF reached 2 other slam finals, Roddick reached another 4, Moya reached another, and they all made number one in the world!

Re: Andy Murray: one slam wonder?

Congrats to Andy for finally getting the monkey of his back.However for another major triumph,the stars have to align significantly.Pathetic baseline game from Andy in the first two sets,wouldnt pull the trigger if his life was on the line.Such a brand of pushing wont get him anywhere against a fit Fedal and a hungry Djokovic, who can adapt to windy conditions.I really hope that he changes the way he approaches crucial points.

Re: Andy Murray: one slam wonder?

With two slams he'd still be a two-slam wonder.

He needs two more.

Cmon.

Jesus piss on parade much. I'd be surprised if he didn't win Australian Open one year (at least.)

needs at least 5 by beating top form djokovic, nadal and federer in his slam wins to be spoken as same breath as djokovic at least.

murray is not close to the throne and yet needs to defend his throne once he ascended. He is far far away from the real pressure. Djokovic already felt it this yr.

Hope it's the first and last one for the faking pusher.
