Not if you ask me.

For me the only man he should fear on grass is Federer, matchup wise.

As I said the AO semi pissed over it quality-wise although I preferred this result.
Nadal would spin and moonball eather to death with that wind. But again Mandy has ability to push and slice very good and keep ball in copurt, while Joker looks like chased by dogs with his movement. Anyways yes AO semi was best match of year by far.

The scary thing is that had he been allowed to finish his SF on Saturday, Ferrer could have very well won this Slam. In the heavy wind, it's all about who can keep the ball in play the longer, and only Nadal beats Ferrer in that department.

Of course you'd expect unlimited amounts of choking from Ferrer in a Slam final, but he does play far better in the heavy wind than Murray for sure.

Re: Andy Murray: one slam wonder?

He won't be a one slam wonder.

The first is always the hardest, he's proved that. He's got over the hill and he can now play his best tennis with not as much pressure by far. He knows what it takes to win a slam final. He's now won two five set finals against Federer and Djokovic, Nadal is the next test for Murray and I don't have any doubt he can overcome that challenge. I honestly think he'll win five or six slams in his career.

Djokovic was so close to turn this around but stamina didnt let him, he did that before but when opponent constantly makes reallies long and push its matter of time u will get tired, its Nole fault for playing like crap 2 sets or he would finish this earlier.

Re: Andy Murray: one slam wonder?

Only time Murray can win a GS:

Opponent retires in final

Opponent forfeits before match and hence Mugaray wins by walkover

Everyone protests at AO because of the prize money. Murray, desperate for slams, is the only guy that turns up and collects his slam without even stepping foot on court


Extreme winds infuriating his opponent.

Only ways he can ever win a slam.

Luckily for him option 4 occured yesterday.
