Post Murray's career from now on...

Now that he's got that first slam, how will his career be from now on? His confidence will get a massive boost from that US Open win and imo, he will dominate 2013. The rest of the year is mostly irrelevant until Shanghai/WTF but I think he'll dominate there too. I see him winning WTF this year. It is in London and the crowd will be behind him.

Since that first slam is out of the war, I think Andy is well on his way to being the best British player to ever play the sport, in terms of both success and game.

Opinions?

LET'S GO!!
SLAMS: 3 TITLES, 8 finals, 9 semi-finals, 8 quarter-finals...
WORLD TOUR FINALS: 1 TITLE, 3 semi-finals...
MASTERS: 14 TITLES, 7 finals, 12 semi-finals, 18 quarter-finals...
OLYMPICS: 2 gold medals, 1 silver...
DAVIS CUP: 1 TITLE, 1 semi-final, 1 quarter-final...
WORLD #1: 2 weeks and counting...
MATCH WIN/LOSS: 630-174...
TITLES: 44 and counting...

Daley Thompson, Jackie Clark, Jackie Stewart, Bobby Charlton, Fred Perry, Steve Redgrave?

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

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

Don't think he will wrap up 2013 and be the clear player of the year, but I have a feeling he will co-dominate the season with 1-2 more players out of the big 3.
My guess is 1 Slam for Andy in 2013, possibly 2. Absolutely impossible to predict which one, though. He didn't play brilliant tennis at USO and won. But if I had to guess, I'd say Wimbledon next year.

Overall I think he will win 7 Slams. And 2 WTFs, but NOT this year. No career GS for Andy, I'm afraid.
And I have a weird gut feeling that he will struggle against Rafael Nadal more than ever from now on, but will have a positive H2H with Djokovic.

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

I'm interested to see what will he do when he loses first couple of matches to some random journeymen. Will he continue to have confidence or will he start questioning himself. I see him finishing 2013 as no2 or 3

Djokovic | Tipsarevic | Querrey

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

Murray is not winning WTF if Federer is anywhere close to his best. He did not play out of his skin to win the USO, so I am yet to see something that will allow him to dominate.

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

I thought it`s known fact already - Andy is going to become "Future #1 and multiple Slams winner", isn`t he?

Gasquet is next №1

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

Spot on Sapeod as always. Murray is on a massive roll right now. A juggernaut in the making. 2013 will be his year. 2 slams NID. As for the remainder of this year...runaway favourite for the far east swing and the WTF. Good times.

No CYGS prediction yet? Have you softened up Sapeod?

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

The fact is Murray will always be exposed against an on form agressive player, be it the number 1 or number 50.
He won't ever dominate a year. However I can see him winning more slams.

Proud supporter of El Tio , the greatest genius alive!

Alchimists transform iron into gold. Boriiiiiing!
Movie-makers transform dreams into reality. Yeah, whatever...
El Tio transforms Dull into a multiple GS champion! Daaaaamn!

El Tio has the keys to weather, court speed, draw making, umpires' decisions and perception of time between points, top players' fatherhood, and my libido!

This signature is in no way ironic. Please don't ever let El Tio think that, for my sake!

Last time I checked, none of them are British tennis players apart from Perry.

Fred, even with 8 slams, played in an inferior era. If Andy gets anywhere near 6, he'll be better in my eyes, and he will get within 6, if not a couple more.

Well, yeah, I'm just asking how far will he go.

I made a CYGS prediction for 2013, but I was mostly taking the piss when it came to RG. That said, he'll win the other 3 and I won't be surprised if he wins RG. He's certainly good enough to do it.

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

If Federer is on form he'll beat Murray at the WTF, if Djokovic is on form he'll probably beat Murray at the WTF (he wasn't at his absolute peak at the US). Same for both of them at Grand Slams next year plus add in the possibility of Nadal returning to some kind of form and we all know the hold Nadal has over Murray. So I don't see any domination by Murray in the near future although another GS is absolutely possible next year.

Murray, at his absolute best, dominates Nadal on hardcourt. He does the same to Djokovic, although he doesn't dominate him. Federer? Same thing, on hardcourt at least. On hardcourt, Murray is better than all of them when he's at his peak and the confidence he'll get from the US Open win will allow him to mellow out and play near that peak more often.
