Re: Andy Murray on clay. Will he ever win a clay title or prevent him from the #1 spo

He proved he isn't entirely useless on clay in 2011, so why not regain that clay form and build on it a bit

Can't see him winning the French Open but a masters doesn't seem out of the question some day.

As for Murray's clay chances?

Very low, but people saying he will never win a clay title are pretty ridiculous, and probably hating rather than using logic. What Andy needs is a good draw for and confidence in himself on the surface for him to win a title, and that's not impossible. Lendl should help but I'm not sure.

He just needs a good draw, it wouldn't be solely of his own doing.

He can win a title, but most likely it will be a 250 event.

Yeah I think he will win 2 clay titles in 2015.... possibly Madrid? And definitely at least one in 2016.

As opposed to what, best of 1 set tournaments? :P

Murray needs its to be a super tiebreaker or maybe best of one point to have success on clay

If you have an issue with a report/infraction, a user, a moderator or just want to talk, PM me.

I support Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, David Ferrer, Del Potro.

Why? Because I love tennis plain and simple

Sampras' points total would not be enough to be #1 now. Most of the time he was #1, he had less points than Murray in 3rd have presently (adjusted to the same scale).

Sampras won Rome, Murray doesn't have a final on clay yet. Not to mention that Sampras wasn't good on clay but he was ridiculously dominant on grass and to a lesser extent HC.

Are you suggesting Murray's career is like Sampras'?

I think Murray should play some smaller clay events such as Munich.

RAFAEL NADAL and GRIGOR DIMITROV

Rafa winning at least one slam in 10 consecutive years is the best achievement in Open Era tennis since Laver won all 4 Grand slam tournaments in the same year!


Don't ever underestimate the heart of a champion!

Will Andy "Clayray" Murray ever reach a clay final?

Everybody knows Murray v2.0 OBE has tanked in Monte Carlo to lull every player into false sense of security. Question is, when will the Great Scot choose to reveal his new found clay prowess? I say he will announce himself as THE new clay superpower by winning Madrid and Roland Garros this year. Only Del Goatro with synthetic wrists can hope to stop him

Depends on what kind of clusterfuck the RG draw will bring.
