For 3 minutes per match or what? He's the furthest thing from a brilliant claycourter. Come back to me when he's even reached a final.

Think he'll win a couple Masters on clay by the end of his career. If he puts the effort in improving his clay game, the sky's the limit.

Default Re: Murray's no slouch on clay!

Though the young one's rantings make me urge to answer no, he's no slouch on clay, he's a slouch out of clay also....

In fact I've always thought he can indeed play on clay, ever since I watched him on the 2nd set of MC SF 2009, against Rafa himself. This year he took it a step further. Still pretty far from actually achieving much of course (and the young one will hype that single set till he manages to get poor Murray on everybody's nerves..), but still, the potential is indeed there, right inside the Scot's sporran. So, who knows what the future may bring?

There is also the Djokovic and Bellucci problems on clay.

It depends how you look at it, up to the semi-finals of RG last year Berdych was absolutely stunning BUT the match against Murray was arguably his worst match, I mean he played well but still he just made it a lot tighter himself than it needed to be.

Yes, masters series will be hard to win for Murray but not due to Nadal...there are plenty clay courters who could have Murray for breakfast. Check out Murray's masters history on clay and you'll see that Nadal is one of MANY he has to worry about. Just on top of my head, aside from Nadal...Federer, Del Potro, Djokovic, Ferrer, Soderling, Berdych, Wawrinka, Verdasco, are all superior clay court players to Murray. Bellucci is another one who will consistently give him run for his money.

he's done a LOT better than Andy Roddick and he gives a damn unlike the cursing Yankee and he's got the willingness and age on his side

That really doesn't mean too much - he only plays the big tournaments.

Top5 is clearly an exaggeration though, but I suspect he might sneak top10

Rock solid in his match against Malisse.

Mugray is a clay clown, end of story. The only time he will ever get his hands on RG trophy is if Nadal invites him to his house.

Nadal, apparently the greatest player to ever play on clay struggling against a clay clown, having to defend and push the entire match and needing him to be injured to win proves that right?

I can honestly say I've never seen you post anything credible. There's nasty, and then there's you.
