Sampras was quite spot on with his analysis. About Djokovic's season. Incredible really and later in the video that comment was aptly made about Murray too. that the victory against Nadal in Tokyo showed that he had talent.

But who didn't know that already, seriously? That Murray hasn't been able to win any slam doesn't mean that he hasn't got the talent to do it. Even if he went all his career slamless he would still be one of the most talented players to play the game.

Actually i always thought Sampras was a dull and dour personality. It was quite insightful from him to be honest.

Great video. Why is Andy Murray included in this discussion?

I think Del Potro has just as much a chance of success in 2012 as Andy, and Potro has proven that he is mentally tough enough.

Not really, the technical weaknesses in his game are quite obvious. The common school of thought is that Mugray can't win a slam because he's mentally weak - that is incorrect. He can't win a slam because he's a pusher.

Everybody has technical weaknesses. Nobody is perfect. Like Nadal whose game is barely watchable. Can never understand how anybody can become a Nadal fan. Murray at least has talent to watch him.

People, seriously, no one and i mean no one can succeed at the top without huge amounts of TALENT. When people say a player is talentless it makes me laugh, it's so ludicrous and so untrue. Just to break in the Top 100 of the world makes you hugely talented, and to be in the top 4 means that you're amongst the best 4 players in the whole wide world. Just think about that and tell me again they have no talent.

He was very focus and competitive during his prime. Nowadays, he is very relax and playful in the championship series/senior tour. Except may be playing vs Agassi :lol:

It's all relatively. Murray is not a mug, but he's a relative mug compared to Fedalovic. Of course things can change if Murray has a transformation similar to Nole 2011.

Murray is being compared to multi slam winners when gauging talent, not to top 100 players.

Nina, Determination and physical prowess along with great coaching can break you into Top 4. Talent is no longer required in these condition. And i know you wont agree with it.

Obviously I don't agree with that. If it was down to it, ANYONE could be in the Top 4. Anyone. No way, mate, you've got it all wrong. Don't confuse a style that bores you with lack of talent. Style is style, everyone's got a different one, but talent means skills, and to succeed in this super competitive sport that we call tennis, you need better skills than everyone else. Only a very selective few can play tennis like these guys.
