Re: What Does Murray Have Over Djokovic?

The only thing I can think that Murray does better than Nole is volley - the problem being of course that in top level tennis today very few points are actually won with conventional volleys rather than groundshots.

At the moment Nole is miles ahead of Murray physically, technically, tactically and most importantly mentally. Murray needs to show us what he's really made of and stop winging.

Nole brilliant - Murray - got a job to do!

Re: What Does Murray Have Over Djokovic?

Muray has better return of serve, volley, movement, speed, first serve. Sadly I saw the best Murray long ago.
I think they have same backhand.

Never ever give up

Nole is week younger than Andy, not a big difference, but just for the record.

ASI Director-General Gautam Sengupta said the list of India's treasures held abroad was "too long to handle" and there was a need for a "diplomatic and legal campaign" for their restitution from institutions, including the British Museum, the Royal Collection and the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

Re: What Does Murray Have Over Djokovic?

He has better dropshots, lobs, volleys and slices. I agree with the comments made with regards to point construction, but that doesn't necessarily make Murray more efficient than Djokovic on court.

Ignoring the fact that it didn't happen "now", who ended up beating Murray in those Slams?
