Re: What do you think of Murray's game on clay?

His game is ok for clay though, he used the angles well, is one of the best on tour at constructing points, and his movement is good enough.

He actually used to describe it as his favourite surface, he had a lot of success in the lower levels.
Canas actually isn't the main criteria of comparison, he has always been better on slow HC than clay.

All the results from this era on clay mean nothing because the field is awfully weak.
