Andy Murray and his unbeaten run

If you discount Grand Slams and Masters, Andy Murray is currently on a 31 match winning streak (500's and 250's) with his last loss againt Lu in the Olympics 2008, is this the longest streak of 250's and 500's or where does he rank to others? It's a truely remarkable stat and i guess it goes to show he is king of the MM

Very interesting. How about if we discount that he plays tennis?

He's done well at ATP 1000 level too to be fair and been consistent at GS level of late.

A Master Serie is NOT a MM tournament.

makes sense :lol: :shrug: in the smaller events he can avoid all the very best players. In the masters and slams, he'll usually have to beat 2-3 top players to win a title. So far, that's been too much to ask of him on a consistent basis :shrug: he has even more trouble in slams :lol:


so far he has won 4 masters-2 each in '08 and '09.

Good for Andy :yeah: MTF is the only place where a players achievements are used to insult them.

If you discount all the matches Oscar Hernandez the king has tanked, he has never lost either.

He doesnt lose, he either wins or doesnt win.

well since top players have byes and 3 set finals it looks more like a MM tournament than a GS

That is indeed a great run he is on, although I think he gave Gasquet a walkover last year in Dubai but that doesn't count ;).

I agree but the Murray run comes strictly from ATP 250 and ATP 500 events, according to what the OP said.

For the record, I wouldn't say ATP 500 are MM either, tbh, but it's just funny to call a player "king of the MM".

Obviously not. It's certainly not as different as you make out, though. All the top players are there. The difference is the scale, not the quality of the competition.

Roger's 41 wins streak at MM has its edge over Murray's 31.... But Murray is still on, he can still surpass Federer and become "the true king of the MM".

We'll see what happens in Dubai
