Default Murray admits he may not be able to win another Grand Slam

Strange statement. I'm thinking how serious his back surgery was.

well is pretty significant because lets face who apart from Murray could break the current boring duopoly of the men's game? Del Potro perhaps but I can't think of many. It would be pretty shit for most of us if he comes back worse, I don't think I could stand another 3 years of Noledal finals.

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

yes and no. It's a pretty strong statement though. It doesn't make any sense to me. Muray is a champion ... why would he downplay his chances to win more majors? I just hope he is OK.

I don't think I can stand another years of Djokovic/Murray finals.

So Noledull it's ok for me.

Tiger, I'm with you here 100%. Tennis needs Murray. Even as a Nole fan I don't want to see Djokovic/Nadal dominating everything and it looks like we are going in that direction.

Downplaying his chances? He has learned from the best:

So now we have, what, three players who actually believe they can win a(nother) slam?

Djokovic, Nadal, Tsonga, and Federer.

I predict those 4 in the SF in AO, should the draw allow it.

Though I think Murray is just being cautious post back surgery and he believes, when fully healthy, he can win, as he has.

Berdych, Wawrinka, Ferrer, Gasquet, and the rest, I have no hope.

Del Potro I think he believes, but I dunno if he can stay healthy for 5 sets over 2 weeks.

Alex.

Seriously mate.

You do filter out a set of quotes and pick just one to mislead everyone? What was the point of that?

'But I also know how hard it is to win those tournaments. It may never happen again, I might not win another one but I just want to give myself the best chance to do that and that's why we do the work over here and train and prepare as best as we can.

'Hopefully I'll give myself an opportunity to win another one.'

He's using Rafa tactics. He's full of it. He had minor keyhole surgery according to reports.
