Both are equally legitimate, obviously. Del Potro's was more difficult, he beat Fed/Nadal back to back.

Murray is one of my least favorite players but I don't understand why so many like to denigrate him. He was well worth his Grand Slam and will likely win a few more.

Del Potro may have beat Nadal, but Goderer beat himself.

More legitimate? Is this what we've driveled down to on these forums? This is some WTA stuff. Both guys won Grand Slams and reached the pinnacle of their sport and we're trying to cheapen one of them? Piss off with that nonsense.

Well, Del Potro had tougher opponents to deal with (Fed and Nadal back to back), so in that sense you can say his grand slam title is more "legitimate" than Murray's...HOWEVER, Murray's been in 6 other grand slam finals whereas Del Potro has reached zero since his success in New York. Also, Murray has numerous masters titles whereas Del Potro has zero. So, Murray definitely deserved his grand slam title more than Del Potro from that point of view.

Del Potro. Beating Fedal back to back.

Both are legit.

Murray is the better player. Stating the obvious.

what kind of question is this? murray is a multiple slam finalist with several masters titles in his account while pony boy only managed to fluke away the USO.

murray is bigger and more consistent in pretty much every department. no comparison, really.

Default Re: More legitimate Grand Slam Title! Murray V Del GOATro

I'm not getting the question. Did Murray or Del Potro cheat or play foul or do anything else that would question the legitimacy of their titles?

Maybe "impressive" is the more adequate word?

Btw, I recall that Nadal was injured when he lost the US Open semifinal to Del Potro. This said, Del Potro's tournament victory was impressive, being the first player to break into the Federer/Nadal duopoly. He hasn't been quite the same after his injury break.

Murray's title was impressive too, not at least because of the final against Djokovic. As Del Potro, he was a tad lucky in the semifinal, the wind certainly helped him more than Berdych.

lol @ Lenders trying to pretend Spudtro had a chance at winning RG. He must enjoy torpedoing his credibility in every thread he posts in.

Legitimate in different ways. DelPo played a better tournament than Muzz to win USO. But looking at their whole career, it'd be a bigger injustice if Muzz lacked a slam.

Read thread title again. This time try harder.

DelPo obviously. He beat Fed and Nadal and was pretty dominant. Not to take anything away from Murray but if you compare both USO slams and if you'd favor one over the other in terms of tougher road and value DelPo's is imo ahead to Murrays. And it's not even close.
