Lendl basically physically outlasted his competition and though I like Edberg, Becker, and Wilander they were a far cry from the all time greats before them.

Not to say Mugray will have a career anywhere near Lendl, but maybe he'll win a few more slams if he get to play competiton like Mecir and Perfnors in slam finals
This.

Since he's having to beat Djokovic to win said slams...no. Djokovic is an incredible tennis player, beating him to win a slam (or slams in the future) makes him a worthy slam winner, not a transitional champion.

WTF is this clown term 'traniational' champion?

The game is always changing, no one is going to be around for ever. They are all 'transitional' champions. The haters need to get over the fact that Murray is a great player and that they were wrong, he will actually win many slams. Stop trying to come up with excuses

Murray beat Djokovic. Aka Djokovic 1.8. Not an easy feat.....

I honestly think if Murray beats Djoko at AO, then he is not a transitional champion.

* Slams Do Not Exist!

Lenders: One thing people need to understand about this so-called weak era is that it was 'weak' for Federer on HC and grass and for Nadal on clay (Federer on clay too Nadal apart) because they were so much better than anyone else, for any outsider the era couldn't possibly be any harder, during 5+ years you had to either beat the best grass/HC player ever or the best clay player ever in every single Slam just to get 1 Slam title.

Barring injury it doesn't seem there will be many changes in top 10, let alone top 3. Even Tipsy has clocked a full year (and few months over) inside top 10, a lot of people didn't think he'll stay there for more than few weeks at best
