A lot of people have called delpo's win a fluke and vice versa...

I would say Del Po, although i'm bias. Del Po beat Nadal in straight sets, and Federer in the final. But both definately deserved their titles

Comparing Potro to Murray.

Murray won his slam in his fifth final. He had won many other big tournaments with an Olympic gold and 8 masters title. Potro has nothing other than his slam, no other finals, master titles etc.

They both "deserved" it but del Potro's victory was the more impressive one, IMO. Beating Federer and Nadal (who he destroyed) back-to-back is a rare feat.

Agree.

I don't really agree with the concept of "deserving" - if you win it you deserve it, if you don't win, you don't. But allowing for the idea that someone SHOULD win a slam, then Murray paid his dues and got there in the end.

Definitely DelPo, as Murray got a ballbasher under extreme wind on his SF and benefited from more rest in the Final to outgrind his opponent in the 5th set.

Yes, Murray's past achievements do make up for this fluke but that is not the question.

That's a ridiculous thing to say. It was Murray v Federer in the final, Del Potro was not in sight. Andy won it on his own.

Murray beat Djokovic in the final, who had won three hard court slams in a row.

Impressive - Delpo by far

Deserving - Andy by far

Stupid thread title - you can´t combine those 2 words together if comparing Delpo´s and Andy´s USO titles...

Do you really believe it speaks for him in comparison with Delpo?

Wouldn`t argue with other arguments though.

Gasquet is next №1

Don't pretend you don't know what he is talking about, but at least there Murray beat Nole very convincingly so it is reasonable to assume he could have won it even if Federer was not tired.
