Is quite simply immense.


He is now 17-6 in 5th sets...I think. Lost 3 of his first 4 as well so that's 16 wins from last 19. Can anyone top this?

So that's why he gifted Monfils 2 sets!

Andy's 5 set record is impressive, Murray is 17-6 in career 5 set matches - 73.9 win %

For comparison:

Nadal - 16-5 76.2%
Djokovic - 20-8 71.42%
Federer - 22-17 56.41%

The last one against Monfils doesn't count, that's for sure.

Murray's records at each slam:

Aussie Open: 1-3
French Open: 5-1
Wimbledon: 3-1
US Open: 6-1

Davis Cup: 2-0

Interestingly Murray's only 5 set loss at Wimbledon, US Open, and French Open were his first 5 set match in each of the slams. I think the reasons for Murray's really poor record in Australia is because be usually wins comfortably in the early rounds in Melbourne (although the three losses were against Nadal, Djokovic and Verdasco). He has such a good record in New York and Paris because he sometimes has lapses during matches in these two slams which he usually recovers in the 5th set.

Amazing achievement that he couldn´t beat Haase, Troicki, Andy Ram and Monfils in 3 or 4 sets.

On the other hand, he never lost a 5th set in a grand slam final. Shows what a fighter he is unlike Federer, Nadal or Djokovic!!!

This is another example that you need to be very careful with stats. Beating Verdasco or Monfils in 5 is not that a great achievement, although Murray's mental strength is waaay underrated,.

Most of it against mugs though :shrug:

Pretty much this. Somehow weak players push him 5 sets, but his fitness and defense allows him to pull out the wins. He should be beating these players in straights

Murray did not win last night's 5th set. It should not count when opponent leaves the current ... let's face it. Monfils went home after the 4th set.

It's impressive indeed. Nadal's and Djokovic's are too. Impressive stats come from being one of the Big 4...although Roger's is slightly disappointing.

As are a good amount of Djokovic's and Nadal's too. Remember Nadal having to beat titans such as Petzschner and Haase over five sets and only surviving because they both choked away the match and one of them became injured?

Typical of MTF to turn a fairly impressive stat on its head and just look at a way to twist it to being somehow bad. Can you people not just go "yeah that's fairly impressive" instead of being clowns and just looking for something to nitpick? I don't suppose you can, but you could always try?

The facts are ... if we take away wind and quality opponents away, Murray does not really have that impressive of a stat. The fact that Roger lays an egg when playing 5 setters does not change anything. Rafa's 5 setter stats are indeed impressive.
