Troll back in his usual roll after running away in shame like his idol after the Mickey final loss. Yes of course he will make a clay final. Dumb question.

I'm sure he has what it takes He almost beat Peak-form Djokovic in Rome 2011 when he was still starting to find his form.

Default Re: Andy Murray on clay. Will he ever win a clay title?

No, of course not. To win on clay, one has to be able to slide. Mandy's game is far too mechanical to slide.

Only reason he has gotten so far in Roland Garros is because of chokers (Troicki), pigeons (Gasquet,Simon) and opponents feeling sorry for his slight injury (Nieminen, Berrer).

On a contrary. He should play much more to get enough practice and confidence. Step by step. Avoiding smaller clay events, as he does now, could be one of the reasons he doesn't improve on the surface.

Default Re: Andy Murray on clay. Will he ever win a clay title?

Will he win a Masters title? At this stage, somewhat dubious. But there's no denying Murray will win a clay title in the next five years, even if it is a 250 or 500 event.

Default Re: Andy Murray on clay. Will he ever win a clay title?

He would have to enter a 250 first and for reasons that continue to elude me, he persists in ignoring this obvious avenue for gaining some practice and confidence on the surface

He could have already made a final if he cared enough to play an ATP 250 tournament on clay.

or if he didn't choke away that Rome SF against the Djoker...

Default Re: Andy Murray on clay. Will he ever win a clay title?

He may win some clay title, honestly, I wish him that. Far worse players managed to win clay titles in the past. The wrong thing for him is - he plays mostly clay Masters 1000, where plays Rafa, Novak or Roger....on at least one of them...and so it's impossible for him.
If he'd desperately want clay title, he'd play some 500 or 250 and win something....it's not impossible.

He has too much pride to go down the vulturing route. If he entered the MM clay events I'm pretty sure he'd win a few.

Pride comes before a fall.

His arrogance is the reason why he'll never be number one in the rankings.

Default Re: Andy Murray on clay. Will he ever win a clay title?

His poor performance on clay is the reason he has almost no hope to become World no.1 now, when there is player like Djokovic, who is very good on all surfaces. Look at the difference between them in rankings. Huge.... Simply, there are too many clay events, he can't afford to be mediocre on clay...
