Default Murray, the worst top 4 ranked clay courter of all time?

When I think back I can't remember who was worse on clay then him ranked inside the top 4. Was there anyone worse in the history of tennis?

Federer, Nadal and Djokovic pander to plutocrats and charge huge appearance fees. The "trickle down effect" means that tournaments like the Heineken Open now have to pay appearance money for racketeers that many of us have never heard of. It's close to extortion.

I'm certain there are many. Heck was Sampras ever any good on clay?

Andy Roddick comes to mind. Though he never cared much for it anyways (and does actually have some titles on it).

Boris Becker never won a title on clay. He wasn't a bad player

Murray is certainly better on clay than the OP.

Clay isn't Murray advantage, but there were a lot of TOP4 players who played worse than Andy on this surface. Even Sampras has only one semifinal at RG, Andy has two. Also Andy has better winning percentage on clay. Let alone Ljubicic, Hewitt, Henman, Roddick and many others.

Henman and Rusedski, Jonas Bjorkman, to name a few, maybe Tommy Haas also.

WTF, don't you even remember Roddick? Best RG result 4th round, he even lost to Cippola, it was that bad. Many players were also worse, but Roddick is an obvious one.

Sampras did win Rome in 1994 though, even if he did only face fellow clay great Boris Becker in the final.

Hey Murrays new clay title is about 99% Bjorkman. He clearly gave Murray some new moves and secret clay tactics so he could finally get one.

Yes, I'm happy he is working with Jonas, who definitely knows the game, and I agree I thought I saw a few signs of his influence. He wasn't that great on clay himself though as I recall.

yeah I was part joking ofc. Still it's great to get a good start in the first tournament together. Murray was in need of a better coach. He could even do some damage in RG. Tennis is a lot about confidence and Murray with a clay title is a different animal than the Murray everyone mocked for lacking a final on clay.
