tbf to the guy, Tojo did win a masters (beating mighty MS king Kafelnikov in the final. Oh wait...) and make the Wimbledon SF. He's better than say... William Bowrey (incredibly random example, but w/e)

| Wins over 3+ of the Top 4. Players to reach all slam QFs+ in history. Hawkeye/Line Calls. QFs+ at Slams & Masters, but never Top 20.
Haas / The Fog / Tsonga / Brown / Mahut / Dolgo / Fed / Baker / Alund / Tursunov / Copil / Bolelli / Brands / Benneteau / Gojowczyk / Steps / PHM
Rafter / Edberg / Henman / Stich / Safin / Gambill / Grosjean / Malisse / Gonzo / Llodra / Santoro / Agassi / Schalken / Nováček / Rosewall / H-T Lee / Kuerten / Boetsch / Pavel / Sundström / Björkman / Scud / El Aynaoui / Arazi / Calleri / Sampras / Nalbandian / Mosquito / Srichaphan

Whereas almost every opponent (Andy played amazing in that Rome match but gifted it away, some others did too) during Djokovic's run played awful

Exactly. That was probably the best Raonic has ever played while Andy was nowhere even close to his best. Despite this the match could still have gone either way with Andy having match points

Can't argue with this. Before the USO final they were all better than Murray. Now Murray owns them all.

Dodig was also pretty good.

Actually I think that Bogomolov played closer to his level than far better players with whom Andy played at that tournament. For example, obviously Djokovic gave Andy better fight, but he was able to show more than that. Bogo? Not so much.

It should be adequately perceived, IMO.

It`s not true. Lopez was average at best. Murray barely moved and hit at some moment and Feli still didn`t take advantage. Say a lot.

How many Lopez`s matches you saw in past? I can remember dozens better than this from him with solid opponents.

Though I must add here I guess that Andy won his Slam fair and square, but no need to exaggerate resistance he faced.

you have Gasquet as the next number 1. I guess that's all I need to know about you

Andy Murray ---- 2 time grand slam champion. Your argument is invalid.

I like Richie and I hope a lot of great results are still ahead of him. Any problems with wishing good for favourite player?

Lopez played way above average, especially first two sets.

A loser losing. No shocker here. Good to see talent come through.
