Default Murray Has Never Made A Grand Slam Final As A Top 4 Seed...

Just thought of this randomly.

US Open 2008 - 6th seed
Australian Open 2010 - 5th seed
Australian Open 2011 - 5th seed

There's no point in this thread, just sort it was an interesting fact considering how much he's been ranked inside that top 4.

Maybe he needs to fall out of the Top 20 to win a slam.

clearly Murray needs to fall out of the top 100, he won't lose a set then

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...

He will pull a Goran and win Wimby as a wildcard in 2017.

That is pretty funny because every other Grand Slam since US Open 2008 he's been seeded in the top four. Lower seed equals less pressure which leads to greater success.

Playing Ferrer and Cilic in the semis doesn't hurt either

This.



As interesting as it is that he made the finals during the only three slams in which he wasn't top four seed since 2008 US Open, I attribute his success more to the people he played getting to the final.

Especially 2010 - Injured Nadal + Cilic

Injured Nadal for 3 games, fit Nadal for two sets.

Perhaps even more interestingly, in the two occasions where he was the no.2 seed - Wimbledon and US Open 2009 - he lost in the semis to Roddick and was absolutely destroyed by Cilic in round 4.

It seems that the more overranked he is, the more his performances suffer.

Because he's a mental midget. You only need to look at the hammerings he got at all of his slam finals in order to see it. I hope Mugray never makes another slam final, because he's walking BYE.
