He'll be on match point in the US Open Final before the doomsday decides to strike early. Don't need veterans to tell us that.

I wish he would just win a slam, preferably Wimbledon so the British especially will STFU about Murray not winning a slam.

But, as human nature dictates, I guarantee that once Murray wins Wimbledon, the next day, the British press will be looking for Murray to win every slam, push to hype to the max, and when he fails, they'll wonder why he can't do it and where the next British champion will come from and who he will be :rolleyes:

And they wonder why they've had no slam champs since Fred Perry in the 30's.

If Murray or another one wins a single GS in his career people say "Oh he probably won it by fluke" and criticize him for not winning a second one...see negative comments about Noah, Gaudio, Delpony and other who won only one GS...so maybe it's better for a player not to win a GS than to win one "by fluke". Anyway detractors are never happy with results of players they hate and nothing will never make them love X or Y, winning a GS is not a reason to love a player anyway.

Yep. I hardly read or see anything said about tennis or Murray here outside of Wimby time. The rest of the world seems to assume all Britain talks about is Murray and his elusive slam. The media barely give a toss about anything but Football.

Well I guess when he has disappointed you so many times, best to focus on the football.

Or any other sport, where we can get lectured by how our press hypes our athletes up.

If he wasn't British, it'd be fashionable to point how no one gives a crap about him when they aren't giving the token article about how he hasn't won a Slam yet.

well they haven't had a Grand SLam champ in many many decades..... that is what they are waiting for. so of course they might naturally be dissapointed that a player from their country has been at the top for years and has just barely not managed to win one

Disappointed not disappointment. And yes, as I like Murray, I'm disappointed that he still hasn't won a Slam.

Still think they are the global hegemon :rolleyes:
