Well at least he's staying confident.

He's right. It's within his grasp. He just needs to fight as much as Nole does and then some more.

About 18-24 months ago Djokvic went completely off the boil. His serve was utterly abysmal, he was unfit and lacked any kind of mental strength. A couple of years later and he's won 5 grand slams and nobody's going to back him against winning more. The truth is, the gap between Andy Murray and Novak/Rafa may appear big to tennis retards, anyone with a decent knowledge of tennis knows that this isn't the case. Djokovic and Murray were pretty much making progress at the same level. They both had the same game but it was Djokovic who seriously stepped up his game and look where he is now.

Every single post you make, makes you look more and more retarded.

Exactly. 24 months ago. But he already had a GS.
But Murray is old now. He is 25 in a couple of months. Too bad though.

Sure he already had a Grand Slam, but it's stupid to say the Murray isn't close. As an Andy Murray fan I'm disappointed that he never took control of hsi career sooner. Bringing in Lendl was great but had he done it a while ago then he wouldn't be going through what he is going through now ie. trying to win his 1st slam and really through himself into the favourites mix when going into the slams.

Although having said that he's 24 years old, has just brought in Lendl, and you can already see the improvements in his mental game despite their short time together.

I'm feeling sympathy for this guy.
But Andy, please stop talking bullshit after every loss. :facepalm:

To be fair, Murray wasn't far off beating Djokovic in the semi final, hence his comments. However, what Murray has to realise is that to be number 1 he has to compeltely dominate the tour for a whole calender year not just win one match.

I'd rather he said this than announced to the press that it was impossible for him to do it.

Without self-belief, even the self-belief that others will mock and pull down, you might as well throw in the towel.

It wouldn't surprise me if he took #1 spot at some point in the next couple of years, if only briefly. He isn't that far off Djokovic and Nadal right now.

From what I saw of the Djokovic-Murray match, I though Murray was playing better than ever so I don't see why he should not have the ambition to win a GS and become number 1.

Besides, I'm assuming he's about to get down to some serious work with Mr Lendl and we'll see what, if any, impact that will have over the coming months. I think aiming for the slam is more important than aiming for the ranking, anyway.

Don't forgot this was only a month after he joined forces with Lendl.

he is playing in the era of the two GOATs in nadal and djokovic, so he is very unfortunate.

He believes, good on him.

Stop whining, he couldn't get it done, I was as gutted as the next guy but that's sport.

Well, what should he say, that he never has a chance to get it? Why keep playing then? At least he has a healthy attitude about his loss and knows it's still possible because it very much is. Show me Djokovic 2009-2010 and I never would've believed he would beat Nadal 7x in a row in finals but look what happened... A LOT can change with time.

The problem is Murray is close so many times, but it doesn't matter does it? If you NEVER win whats the point? Murray should've beaten Novak in the semis and he should've beaten him in Rome. But he lost from winning positions.

Every tournament we say, " Oh so many positives for Murray." Isn't it kinda a bad sign that a dude ALWAYS chokes?

Of course, he MIGHT win one, eventually. But I'm coming down on the side of him not ever winning one. He runs too much. I think injuries will cut his career short.

"
To compound Murray's woes over the semi-final near-miss, he had to hang around Melbourne Park until more than an hour after the match to complete a drug test.

"I've just done the urine test and they told me I need to sit down for 30 minutes before I can give blood. I want to get out of here. On top of losing a match like that, it's really a frustrating thing to have to go through at one in the morning,'' he said."

Jesus- they make him give blood for a test after that tough tough match. Poor guy.

Also, I think Murray's physically and mentally closer to beating Djokovic than Nadal is.

Well, I have to agree with this one.
