Andy Murray " Rafa's 9 out of 10 RG is greatest achievement in all of modern sport"

It is truly great when a fellow top player who truly understands the magnitude of this achievement and what it takes really pays a tribute like that.

“But for what we do yeah, it is 
challenging to stay mentally focused and sharp. For me, what Rafa has done at the French Open might be the biggest achievement in sport.

“For an individual to win a tournament nine out of 10 years, a tournament that is so physical, it is mentally very draining as well. It’s very, very impressive indeed.”

weak era apologists will tell you Rafa's achievements are meaningless

while they bow on all fours to Philippousis and Roddick

Roman Reigns eliminating 12 people at the 2014 Royal Rumble might be just as impressive.

Greatest achievement is a very subjective thing. Rafa's achievement is definitely outstanding and I think it will stay unbroken at least until my lifetime. :D

Laver's two Calendar Slams is greater achievement. But Nadull's 9 FO also outstanding.

I would have a hard time arguing with him. 9 RG titles and only 1 loss in 10 years is just an insane accomplishment.

Rafa is truly something special, despite what his haters say. The game really isn't going to be the same once he retires, so people should stop hoping that he burns himself out.

Trying to pick the greatest achievement in modern sport is a fool's errand.

It's no doubt a remarkable tennis achievement (if you are down with him being allowed to impune the rules of the sport - and taking full advantage of this gratuity), but we have a hard enough time discussing the relative merits of tennis eras. Attempting to compare and contrast differing sports and disciplines to establish some kind of meritocracy of difficulty in achievement that are also within the greater bounds of career results is, well, a bit tricky.
