I honestly can't believer you took time and effort to write this god awful post.

Murray. Backed it up more effectively. Didn't face an injured opponent in the semi-final. Has clearly had a much stronger career overall.
But both are evidently legitimate. All slams are.

How can one be more legitimate than the other? If you win it, you deserve it.

I voted for Murray though, just because he had half the votes.

If we're looking at the individual slam events, then Delpo. He simply beat more quality opposition. If we're looking at who deserved the slam based on their body of work, then Murray. It was literally his fifth grand slam final when he finally crossed the finish line. He's just been much more consistent at the top of the game. They're obviously both legitimate slam winners, though.

Are you kididng me ? Yeah, he was very lucky he avoided Berdych and got Nadal instead

And while Nadal wasn't 100%, make me a list of players in that draw who were arguably stronger opponents than this 'injured' Nadal. If not for Del Potro, odds are Nadal would have ended up winning the tournament anyway. Under no circumstances would anyone ever prefer Nadal over Berdych in a Slam semi.

This is like trying to decide who is more ridiculous a clown or a jester. Both titles were complete flukes for various reasons.

People crying just because Djoker's the best of all time?
Del Potro choked badly every time he played Federer after 2009. Only one tough Slam win over Federer.

Both won the US Open which in itself is a legitimate grand slam title...

If you're asking if either one was a fluke, then...again no. Del Potro beat two of the top four on his way to the title and Murray has proved his isn't a fluke by being in various slam finals, and winning the Olympics. He's obviously not a fluke champion. The title of the threat makes little sense.
