If your memory of tennis stretches to just the last five years, then maybe, but I recall Murray losing to guys like Garcia Lopez, Chardy, and Mahut in non-Majors the year he won the USO.

More so, what you described was commonplace among a number of guys throughout the 90's and onward. Few players have ever had the week-to-week consistency as some of today's top players.

He's only been in ONE slam final :lol:
He won it, but still, only ONE!
After all these years, only ONE slam final :lol:
And he won it against an injured opponent :lol:

All this hype because of a win against a 33 year old well past his best :lol:

Yeah I remember when he trashed GGL in like the 2nd round last year with a 6-0 in the last set.

*Saw OP name before reading thread*

Leaving not disappointed. OP confirmed is status of a troll.

Injured or not doesn't matter. Wawrinka took out prime Djokovic at AO while Nadal in better form(AO-12) failed to do it, so no reason to assume that Stan could have lost the final. Wawa's win in Rome against Rafa only confirms how dangerous he's when on.

This 33 y.o. player schooled Stan in Rome, but as expected Stan raised his game on the bigger stage and the result was different today.

He used to be a sucky big stage player. Unlike many other players he had the wisdom to make the right changes and hire a kickass coach in form of Norman.


This "Stanimal" has only existed for the past few years. Most of his career he wasn't a big stage player at all

He won that match after that "prime Djokovic" choked a break lead and mishit an easiest possible volley on a single BP, which happened to be a match point for Wawrinka.

He has a Grand Slam and a Masters title, so that alone is a stellar career by most peoples standards.
This is like only the 4th time that he has got to the Semis or better in a Major though, so can't say his performances are that consistently better than at the lower tier tournaments.

Him and Clayray are somthing else. Stanimal has a 100% record in slam finals, Clayray a 100% record in clay finals.

No, that is not true.
I mean he always struggles at Gstaad or Geneva, but he also won smaller tournaments.
And he won also a Master tournament, don't forget that.

He's won one slam and one masters, which is exactly the right ratio, so no.

Well actually, yes. He is very good at slams in comparison to other tournaments. Since USO 2013 he has performed very well at all slams (except for RG 2014). If I recall his results from USO 2013 and on are SF, W, R1, SF, QF, SF, and now at least SF. Pretty good considering how woeful he can be at times in the masters series.

True but unless Tsonga wants to become a French hero he may end up in his second Sunday. And right now he is not the best match up for Nadal. Even Djokovic is going to struggle here.

No. It's not. Federer, Murray, Djokovic, Nadal, etc. have more M1000 than slams.
I disagree. The top players should be more focused on slams than winning masters tournaments. Murray is in the company of the greats in terms of his masters wins, and when all is said and done, who is going to give a shit 20 years from now?
