Olympics is definitely greater than YEC.

YEC-Players are exhausted from the long year. Can lose a match and still win tournament.
Olympics-Players already talking about Rio 2016. Clearly see it as being on par with slams.

Even if it only happened once it's not that interesting. Madrid on blue clay was also only once....

Nobody is talking about Rio 2016 exept Brazilian journalists who ask the stars that visit Brazil what they think about it. And get polite answers.

The only ones that think OG is bigger than the WTF are those that are fans of a player that has won the former but not the latter. Self-serving argument if ever there was one.

But then, my friend, you would strike out. I have followed tennis since 1980. My favourite back in 2000 was Yevgeny Kafelnikov, who - as you remember - won the OG that year. And he never won the WTF. That does not change my view about the tournament. The OG is the biggest event in existence for all the small sports participating there, plus swimming and track-and-field. The other big ones, like football and tennis, have more important events.

With your faith in Murray you should not have to prop up the OG like this. I'm sure Murray has won the Wimbledon proper at least a couple of times already in your mind.

Okay. But at least it is established that slams > Olympics. So Wimbledon title > Olympic gold at Wimbledon.

I didn't suggest you were deluded. Just from your "Murray is already #2 in my mind" comment I figured you could improve reality, so to speak, for your own benefit. That is an excellet ability to have. Of course, it's at it's very best when you don't feel the need to get others to agree with you.
