Yeah, and looking back it seems that every troll to have graced this forum in that time has voiced their opinion. GlennMirnyi, Topspindoctor, FiloV, WingmanFrank to name a few. One thing there is never any shortage of is trolls though. Easy come, easy go.

Murray bageled him apparently or is this just a lie

shows how serious practice sets are

Nadal was probably too busy laughing at his movement and forehand to do anything

Murray doesn't vulture

I think last year the points ratio showed he vultures the least, only 250 he enters are AO warm up and Queens which is soon to be a 500 anyways

still, he should vulture for sure, hopefully he goes to Portugal this year

then again for Murray on clay a 250 latter stages is his level

Re: Will Murray ever win a clay title?

Am sure he will vulture a 250 but can't see him winning anything higher than that.

In fairness he has had some pretty good results on clay.

If you go back to 2011 he made the SFs of Monte Carlo (lost in 3 to Rafa), Rome (lost in a 3rd set tie break to Novak) and the French Open (lost to Rafa is straights but was competitive throughout). Madrid where he lost to Bellucci in R3 was his only poor result.

Since then he has clearly not done so well but has obviously had back problems playing on the surface. If the operation allows him to get back to 2011 levels on clay he has a chance of winning something.

Re: Will Murray ever win a clay title?

i think his body movements are more suited to hard than clay has a lot of stop and go motions not really smooth or fluid.
Compared to hardcourt tennis the role of the forehand is enhanced on clay being the main shot to dictate point play (as seen by nadal) and murray has by far the weakest forehand of the top guys. He could easily grab a 500 title but i guess at this point in his career only a master will suffice.
