They can't have it both ways.
That's rubbish, of course. I was so hopeful Murray could win Wimbledon 2011 and then he imploded after a missed FH in set 2 in the SF . I almost deskpalmed at work..

On topic though, until RN comes back and Murray annihilates his famous backside, I'll withhold judgement although my preferences are obvious. It's funny how Nadull is the player who brings out the best of Murray's game (when he decides to bring it to the show).

If some unknown talent came out of some random tiny country (no chance to win DC) and won 20 slams, no one would give a single shit if that player didn't have DC. The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.
