I expect this sort of nonsense from a Murray hater.

Del Potro will never be consistent enough to be in the top 4 for a sustained period.

Clydey, I agree with you. sure DP won a slam but I really believe that Murray is so much more consistent than DP. I really like both players...I hope that Murray will win his first slam this year . sure a Nole fan here but I like Andy so much.

Your point has merit but at least give Pony a few more injury free years before you say that. He has the mental game to do it but big guys usually never stay at the top for sustained periods.

The real Big 4? They've been the Big 4 for quite a while now. I don't really know what Del Potro has to do with this. He can't even reach slam semi-finals anymore, let alone reach the top 4.

Clearly it does. How many points is he ahead of the #5? A lot. How many points is he behind Federer? Not a lot. Federer hasn't won a slam since the Australian Open in 2010, so what's your point? I'm guessing Federer doesn't deserve to be in the Big 4 either, right? No, of course he does. We can use past achievements when it comes to Federer because he's won slams, right? Ha, what a load of nonsense. It's insulting to group Federer with those top 2 just because he's won slams in the past, when currently he is doing pretty much the same as Murray.

feds got 16 slams, some people even call him the GOAT, so of course hes in the "big whatever" class, regardless of the fact he hasnt won any recently. andy doesnt have one. no comparison really.

Uh, no. If he hasn't won any slams recently, then he should't be given any special treatment because he has won slams. He's done pretty much the same as Murray in the past year. Murray has done better in slams actually. It's all about slams, right?

Delpo can claim a slam, but he still has no Masters title and has yet to follow up his slam final with another one. Murray may not have a slam, but he has a ton of other results that speak to his ranking.
Bit harsh to say, yes things fell in his favor, and yes Del Potro was extremely fortunate with his run and winning the second set. Remember, the incorrect call that was made against Del Potro who waited forever to challenge the call and rattle Federer. Yes, the correct call was eventually made thanks to technology, but one must admit he was quite fortunate.

Either way, his success was not a fluke. Big hitters like him are bound to strike gold here and there. I mean he had beaten Nadal three times in a row and followed up the US Open win with that final in London beating Federer again along the way. Maybe he wouldn't win a slam again, but to say he wouldn't have been just as good if not better of a top 5/4 player as Murray is pretty silly. I mean fluke or not, Murray still isn't able to win a slam despite having all those SF/F opportunities. Murray would have had the same path (Del Potro > Nadal > Federer) at that year's US Open had he beaten Cilic, but he failed. IMO it is extremely unfortunate for Juan Martin and I believe he would have been a consistent number 4. I mean despite the injury, he still nearly made the QFs in Australia.

Default Re: Is th REAL big four back?

Come on guys, I'm a huge Delpo fan but I think it's a big insult to say that Murray is undeserving of the #4 spot right now. Yes it's unfortunate that Delpo got injured and lost a good 2 years of his career (I say 2011 was a "claw his way back to Top 10" year, which is pretty sad b/c he was already Top 5 at the time of the injury) but Murray was already more consistent than Delpo before the injury at Masters and such and then again after the injury as well. Now if Delpo wins another Slam before Murray wins his first and rises to #5 some time this year, then I think we might be able to say that Delpo is more "deserving" of the "Big 4" title than Murray is. But even that is uncertain, and right now Murray deserves his spot in the Top 4 for sure.
