The attitude is right, but it's time to put your money where your mouth is. He's turning 25 in a month, so if he doesn't do anything this year, the time for breakthrough will be running out.

Nice attitude. His problem is that there's three players in front of him that's too good. Thus far at least.
He's 2-10 against the top 3 in slams. And needs to turn that around.
I think Andy will win a slam in his career. But that doesn't mean he'll reach number one - or even top 2 - in the rankings.

Besides, Murray is capable of playing aggressive. When he does, he's capable of beating anyone.


Djokovic doesn't exactly have a great forehand. Pretty sure he's been doing just fine on the tour in the last year and a bit.






Lol. Idiot???


Hewitt's limitations? The guy had an all-rounded game, no weaknesses (all be it not a huge shotmaker), but his balanced game, along with arguably the greatest mover the game has seen, coupled with his abilty to take the ball early on the rise and play aggressive on big points won him slams.


Where Murray fails in slam finals is that he's too defensive. He is stuck playing the wrong game, like the other Andy; It has nothing to do with technical ability.
so much fail in this post. first of all if you look at the last 4 slam winners you absolutely need a killer forehand to win a slamin this era (you are a clown if you think djoker has no 'great' forehand). hewitt so called all rounded game got exposed the moment federer got into the game. mugs from his era just won't cut it today.

to me it sound almost like blake would be bragging about the way he will still be able to play another WTF finals...and blake has a killer forehand

Realistically if Murray does play really, really well, then he could perhaps win Olympics, SF Wimbledon, F Toronto, win Cincinnati, F USO, F Paris, win Tokyo, F Shanghai and maybe a F at the WTF. Add on to this a QF at the French, SF at Rome, Monte Carlo, F at Barcelona and QF at Madrid along with winning his 250 events gives him.....
1875
+360+1200+750+720 (Olympics+Grand Slam)
+1000+600+600+600+360+360+180+800 (Masters+WTF)
+500+300+250+250 (500's+250's)
10,705

thats not out of the question.

the problem is that murray not winning slams means either rafa or the djoker are winning them which makes it pretty much useless to speculate about the rest of murrays season.

unfortunately this is true. I think this year he should simply aim for #3 which will be tough with Rodger playing so well.

Note, I'm not saying he will or it's likely, but he doesn't have to recreate Nole's season to do it.
Murray is 4640 points behind Nole and he also has to defend quite a bit between now and Wimbledon...how is he going to get to no.1 with one slam? He's defending semis of all slams, so it's not like winning a slam will give him 2000 points. Anyway, first thing's first: he needs to win a slam to even be in contention for no.1 spot.

It's not just one great player that stands between him and no.1/slam titles but three great players. Chances of all three of them being out of form in slams are close to zero, so Murray will REALLY have to earn his slam/no.1 spot.
Exactly my thoughts. The problem with Murray is that he has to overcome the 3 toughest rivals ever to get there and I don't have any doubt that neither of them will go away. I think it's more plausible that Federer overtakes Nadal in the rankings than Murray overtakes any of them. And in the event that Murray pulled his best season ever and won a couple of slams, he would need to win everything else just to stay there. Obviously they all could spend some weeks at number 1, but end the year as no1? I don't think so.

You've earlier claimed that this era is the greatest ever. Yet now you indicate that there are only 4 players today (top 3 + delpo) who can compete and the rest are useless... just so you know, the conclusion a normal person would draw from this is that this era is shit.
