Default Murray joined Tsonga as the only men to beat Federer, Nadal and Djokovic at Slams

Unless you've been living under a rock, you know tennis has been dominated by three men for the better part of the past decade, Federer, Nadal and Djokovic, who hold a combined 34 Slams and counting and an incredible amoung of weeks at #1 (basically ever since Federer became #1 after AO 2004).

Up until this Friday, the only men to beat all three of them in Grand Slam events was Tsonga, but with his win over Federer Murray has joined him

Active players only one win away from doing this include:

Del Potro - needs a win over Djokovic

Berdych - needs a win over Nadal

Soderling - needs a win over Djokovic

Hewitt - needs a win over Federer

Nadal/Olderer/Djoker = 34 slams

Mugray/Del Bashtro/Bershit/Clownga = 2 slams

And people still think beating the big 3 in a slam means something when all you have is 2 fluked slams to show for it.

The problems those guys have chronically had is beating the 'Big 3' back to back. When Tsonga beat Nadal at AO, he lost to Nole in the final. Beat Federer at Wimbledon, lost to Nole in semis. Beat Nole at AO, lost to Federer in semis. Murray beat Nadal at USO 2008 and AO 2010, lost to Federer, and so so...

Only Del Potro and Berdych managed to get back to back wins. Unfortunately for Berdych, after beating Federer and Djokovic, he had Nadal waiting in the final.

shows how much of a damn headcase Tsonga is He clearly can compete with all the best players as far as talent and game go, but mentally he's usually not there

What a stupid boy this Murray is , He had to play nobody to SF and Federer needed to play 10 years younger guys big big hitters as Tomic,Raonic and Tsonga . And still Federer made Murray run for four hours 5sets match who was fresh as cucumber for this SF, He is 6 years younger and played less matches in his career. Federer at 31.5years shows why he is so great . And what Murray did in final nothing , Federer at this age did not allow Raonic ,Tomic to beat him but Murray did . Raonic beat him twice .

Djokovic beat Federer when he was Murray's age and Djokovic 1 year younger than Raonic at that time so your point is invalid

not to mention that Murray age 19 beat Federer in his prime year 2006 when Fed was 25.........bandwagon fans at their best here.......only prime Fed you saw is on youtube

Might want to add Hewitt to that list mate. He actually has destroyed Nadal twice in a slam and gave a severe beatdown to Nole at the US Open in 2006 that arguably taught the Serb everything he knew about the game and created the monster we are seeing today. Just needs that elusive win over Rogi, but unlike the rest of the players on your list, he has time on his side...
