And why make those comments now? Why not point it out as soon as Fed says it? The timing is impeccable it seems.

That's why I think Murray may need to get spawny like Djokovic did in Melbourne and play a weakened/stricken Federer in some form in order to get his slam, until Fed is way past it that is.

He still gave Muzza a lesson in how to play a slam final even past his peak. He was never completely finished, when it's a slam, he brings it to the table and never loses to mugs.

Even this past his peak Fed is still a monster to put away in a best of 5 format.

Every-one in the tennis world I might add but was it right to bring federer into the equation & that point in time.He could have said "fed will have it tougher but he could make it" or something along those lines.
