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

Somehow people seem to have gotten the notion that one has to be a boaster or an egomaniac to win a grand slam. Maybe it works for some players to say "I definitely can win [X] slam," but that doesn't mean it's the only effective mind set. It's realistic to say, "Who knows what might happen? I might not win another slam." The main thing is to be determined, to work very hard to give yourself the best shot at a title that you can -- and know that if you are able to give your very best you have the possibility to win.

All anyone can do is to do the best one can do. Murray can't become a different person. He has to work with what he has and maximize his strengths.

Sounds more like he's just saying there's always that chance. Taken by itself it can seem odd, but taken as a whole (in its context) not at all. He wants to give himself the best chance for success because it's not guaranteed.

Yup.

And he's got every chance of winning another Wimbledon title. Noledal might be the top 2 elsewhere, but not there.

I agree with this. I think estimations are very warped when it comes to that event.

Murray's clearly been one of the best players on grass of the past couple of years (and not far from it in years prior). If health permits, I see no reason why that would change.

Of course he might not win another slam, he's just had serious back surgery. Murray is just stating the obvious.

He won Wimbledon with that injury.
Federer reached semis of AO some years ago, and he was having mono.

He was just outplayed. Admit it, deal with it.

He's lying. This is revolting for a sir like him. Just watch him lift the AO trophy.

Not really surprising that a player feels there is the possibility he may not win the sport's greatest prizes in the future.

He's won two so far and he turns 27 next year. It's hardly a given.

I think he is just downplaying his chances From the recent tidbits of info from the social media, he looks supremely fit and ready to hit the ground running.

Of course, competing against the uber elite in the world is a completely different ball game altogether, even Rafa took several months to ease into the game and was rusty for most of the clay season. So Andy might not be at his very best until the IW-Miami stretch or even the later parts of clay season.

Anyway, we will get to see how Andy is feeling in a couple of days

and people think he is going to beat Rafa if they meet in a slam. The guy is literally bending over already even before the draw for the next slam is out.

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

Murray is being realistic

The chance of him getting a choking Spaniard in the quarter final of a grasscourt Slam again, or having a hurricane severely impede play during the SFs and Fs again is fairly low.
