He won only final against Nole and lost all 3 to Fed but if I am Murray would outside of Wimbledon always choose Fed to play against. Obviously when Fed is on Murray is roasted but for Murray is much easier to put one attacker on his level than Nole for whom you know that will always be rock solid

imo Murray is pretty good pick for Wimbledon title. Don't see who could stop him if he repeats last year grass court matches
He'd choose Fed now for sure cause he's nearly 32 and in the twilight zone. Prime Fed would absolutely maim Andy IMO.

LLLLWL

The W looks like the odd one out to me, I don't understand all the fuzz about asking that question.

Re: Is Murrays 2012 US Open final victory over Novak starting to look like an anomaly

absolutely beyond doubt now

the records books will have the result as: murray def. djokovic, but we all know that is was really: wind def. djokovic

having said that murray has a great chance to vulture a wimbledon title, but on hard courts theres just way too much competition for him and on clay he's obviously shit so no chance at RG

The bitter me says yes. The RATIONAL me says yes. But the sportsman in me says no.

He DID manage to beat Federer this time around....so I say that he kinda, sorta backed it up with a huge win over a tough opponent in a slam. Beating Federer is no small feat and he finally got over that hurdle, which suggests that he can contend for slams legitimately.

Everyone who watches tennis knows Murrays best chances will always be Wimbledon and the US Open.

He couldnt even win this AO after getting that mug draw, and no Rafito. I cant see him winning anymore slams unless he waits until Kneedal and Egg are retired.

No. Murray is a tough opponent for Nole. They'll probably play even more against each other in the near future, looking forward to that.

Novak Djokovic

Of course but everyone knows this already. An asterisked win but one that Murray fans will take nevertheless out of desperation.

I like Murray and all but NO. No chance for that unless Nole gets injured severely and can't play ever again or retires at this point in his career. In other words...no chance that happens. Nole is simply playing on another level.

US open is also GOATro's and berdshit's favourite GS surface, so that leaves wimbledon as the only realistic hope he has to add to that 1 slam count

Even after a fine win, some are still bitter
