This is a true fact.

lol, do you think any of those players would have beaten nalbandian back then? good thing nadal got replaced or it could have gotten real ugly. he destroyed peakdenko 6-0 prior to the final.

if this is what the future entails (murray winning slams), then its a very bleak future... i'd much rather stay in the past thanks.

That injured Fed still was far better player than these healthy opponents.

Gasquet is next №1

I wouldn't dispute that. The fact is that he had a favourable run to the final so I wouldn't point to it as the beginning of some fabled Murray dominance. Now if he'd gone through 2/3 of Federer, Djokovic and Nadal and beaten them convincingly then that argument might have some strength. Fact is he didn't. I think Murray probably will win another 3/4 slams but he's not going to dominate anything. He's also lucky in that he's peaking in a period where Federer probably has at most another year to eighteen months of competing left and Nadal's career outside the French is under threat. Once those two go (Nadal will probably last longer but given his injury problems who knows?) then he'll only have Djokovic as a main rival and none of the others are showing any signs of breaking through.

Few would argue that Nalbandian is a far more talented player than Slam winners like Murray, JMDP and others... and can produce far better tennis at his best.

But those players worked very hard to achieve what they have. Nalbandian never had their dedication and commitment, which is why he doesn't have a Slam, talent can only take you so far. Not to mention his mentality is questionable, even in that TMC 2005 final he was very, very close to choking big time in the fifth set.

Re: Murray's career from now on...

TMC 2005 was one of the highest levels of tennis I've seen alongside Madrid and Paris 07. Don't slate King David's indoor success.

Re: Murray's career from now on...

Who's arguing about Murray-Nalbandian? Murray's career is obviously better but I'm not gonna argue David is/was the more talented. Not even close.

Re: Murray's career from now on...

Sapeod teasing his fans by waiting this long to deliver this anticipated thread. But it is now clear that it was his master plan to avoid the post Slam craze and produce the go to thread for Murray's divine rise.

This end of season could propel Murray into the #1 conversation by the middle of next year. Roger showed how valuable this part of the season can be.

Re: Murray's career from now on...

The thing about Murray has always been his confidence which leads to belief which leads to work. I don't see him ever losing that confidence>belief>work in the near future so he could go on a tear.
