Re: More legitimate Grand Slam Title! Murray V Del GOATro

Give Murray a break for fuck's sake. He got to six finals and would have converted at least three had he played in Thomas Johansson's generation. Having to play Feder in the first two finals and Novak 2.nothing in the next did not make it easy for him. He was unlucky again at SW19 last year where they closed the roof and allowed the vulture to have his 17th grandcake.

For the poll, Del Potro. Nobody thought he would crack the fedal wall but many people believed until few days ago that Murray would overcome novarer and win his second.

If you check out MTF at the time, there was a mayor sensation that Delpo could do it, because he has proven beforehand that he could and was growing and getting gradually better and better throughout the year. It wasn't a fluke, Delpo showed he was progressing in solid steps that year. So we all felt Delpo had a chance at the Fedal wall, specially against Nadal.

Quite the contrary. I think Delpo would have won. Do you understand matchup issues?

I wasn't on MTF at the time, but I remember several analysts predicting JMDP to get to the final by beating Murray and Nadal. I don't think many expected him to actually beat Federer in the final though, I know I didn't. Making the final was hardly a surprise, taking down Federer there was though; although he had been mightily close at RG months earlier, beating Federer in your first Slam final at 20yo is a quite impressive achievement.

MTF games titles:

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (3): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013 and Geneva 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 1 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers; 7 finals lost

Indeed. JMDP has won less than the single that Johansson won.
