How about Connors, Borg, McEnroe, Lendl. 34 slams in total.

Great players with personality galore (except for Borg.on personality).

The current Big 4 is probably the best group of players at the top of the game ever. However, Murray and Djokovic are nowhere near being the best of anything, Nadal is right behind Sampras and Federer is of course the greatest.

Nonsense. So, why people praise old players such as Laver and Emerson? What they played back in the time would barely be considered tennis by today standards.

If surfaces became more similar (specially grass courts) Its was for better. Now you dont have servebot players with anything else to offer winning those tournaments.

Comparing different eras and wondering how x player would do in a different era is the most silly thing you could ever do.

However there are things such as "mentality" which cross generations, and pretty much a mental strong person of todays era would remain as strong and equally dominant put in any other different era you'd please, and I'd venture to say that applies to other sports aswell.

I wouldn't include Murray in anything like that, because del Potro has more slams than him.
You got that wrong, Potro has one US open. And Murray has one US OPEN one Wimbledon and an Olympic gold.

A slight difference.

fake time-out. cheat. gamesmanship. too noisy annoying always. excuse. boycotts threatened. always dissatisfaction cry complaints. dissatisfaction to schedule. selfish two-year ranking. bump to player. ugly protest. always exaggerated appeal of self condition. etc. overrated by fanatic arrogant blind fan

People can hate all they want but eventually Murray will belong to that category. It's just a matter of time.
Djokovic, Rafa Fed are already in that category. Murray took a big step towards that ever since 2012. He's still relatively young and has a long way to go.

He does, which is why Federer mentioned him in the interview. And he should know - when you are the supreme grasscourter in history you are in a position to judge who the other great players are - especially when you have just been crushed in three sets in an Olympic final.
