Murray's mentality in big matches, not just in finals of slams. He also lets losses affect him for a long time. Andy is in a different league than those other players. He's back to #4, but only b/c he has been injured last few tournments. I think next year he will get to 2. He will win a slam, eventually. He's way too good not too, and the way Roland Garros plays now, he is contention for all 4.

At this point chances of Nalbandian, Gasquet and Davydenko are almost 0%. Tsonga has a chance, not great, but far better than previous 3, Murray just got to keep trying, you'd think he be lucky once.

1. It's a matter of time... I mean, the first time he was so young and Federer was so Federer, 2nd time... If he had won that tiebreak, maybe it would be a different story. And AO11, SuperNole is SuperNole.
He has to be more agressive, though.
2. The big 4 were too strong when he tried to win, but he also has "up and downs" he lost to TOMIC this Wimbledon and he has so many weird loses vs Nalbandian and Delpo.
3. He's old now... He's the most talented player to never win a slam.
In his prime, he has some... "Issues", he prefers the "night life" over the "Tennis training life". He also loves eating like a whale.
4. Nothing. He's gonna win a slam soon. But he needs to improve his footwork and his movment. (His backhand's ok, don't listen to tards).
5. No idea. So many weird chokes. He's also Fed's bitch, so that's sad. The only Fed's bitch to win a slam is Roddick.
6. He's a choker. He needs a forehand and more agressive style.
7. He's talented, but not enough. He's a good player, but not great. He needs to improve every tennis aspect a little.
8. Well... The French Open is for Nadal, so... It's very difficult for him to win anything.


Oliver Rochus: 40 cm.
Ivo Karlovic: Better serve (It's not good enough, you all know that)

1.Murray- Passive play in key moments, mentality, on court attitude, mental fragility, Forehand
2.Soderling- Hot/Cold player, hit or miss, cannot really sustain for a whole French Open especially with the likes of Nadal and Federer
3.Nalbandian- Bad luck, wasted a lot of talent, injuries, food, cookies
4.Tsonga- I believe he will win one, all about sustaining peak level for Tsonga, we saw Wimbledon QF when he's on, he's on
5.Davydenko- Bad luck with draws, Federer almost always on his side, 10 minute bathroom breaks, bad luck, doper in GS SF 5 set loss
6.Gasquet- All bark and no bite, prodigal son of France, never lived up to the hype, talent but no execution
7.Berdych- Like Soderling it's hot/cold. High peak almost unbeatable peak, but very rarely do you see that level, especially not for a whole slam.
8.Ferrer- Outside of French Open he has no chance ever. Unforutnately for David, Nadal and Federer both have always had his number and are far superior clay court players. He also has bad luck in French Open for some reason, only one QF if I remember right.

1.Murray
Overrated pusher. Mental midget.

2.Soderling
Needs to improve mentally

3.Nalbandian
Overrated, fat mug.
Pretty much pigeon for top players. Bad fitness.

5.Davydenko
Overrated. Loved by Nadal haters. Hasn't got any fans otherwise. Zero serve, only plays for money. Worst #3 in existence.

6.Gasquet
Vastly overrated. Pretty backhand. Nothing else.

7.Berdych
Huge choker and brainless ballbasher.

Pusher. Grinder. Very limited talent, but gets there because of hard work.

Ha! Welcome :D
Now seriously, you're gonna have so much fun here. If you were lurking for 2 weeks you know that this is, indeed, a User-war between Fedtards, Rafatards, Noletards and BogomolovTards (I suggest you to enter in the last category).
Welcome to a never-ending war, you'd probably know what "ACC" is, if not, search about it. It's pretty cool.
The most loved user round here is Topspindoctor, he's one of the "Rafatards" but sometims he's so funny... We all love him.

Awww, too sad you miss great users like Federers_Mate... :sad:

Or the great GlennMirnyi, the godfather of the forum, they both have been banned.
If you like Rafa and Fed and you don't wanna be insulted, a good idea is to enter their respective forums, pretty cool, they're all friends and they love each other.

You'd probably notice a username named NadalMyHero with a good ass in his profile-pic, well... The bad thing is that's it's not her ass... :sad:
But don't worry, she's probably pretty hot and you both like Nadal, so... oh yeah.
Oh! And there's also a girl named "Crazy_girl" who says pretty sexual things about she and Roger... HOT!

Also Corey Feldman, also Start_da_game... blah blah blah, you'd like it.

Berdych / Tsonga / Davydenko / Murray = big game but mentally collaspe at big moments

Nalbandian = never cared enough except for spontaneously at random end of the season on indoor (essentially shined on the one surface meant for him and never put in the hard yards to succeed on the other surfaces, of which he could have done great)

Gasquet = for some reason incapable of improving the forehand, and if improved could still potentially approach GS winning quality. often mistaken to be a mental midget when in reality he just is short on one wing which makes him very easy to attack when tired

Soderling = bad luck, has faced players in great form at his GS final opportunities / injured frequently

Ferrer = good consistant player but not GREAT. remember the difference between good and great is just that little extra, of which he can give mentally but does not really have as far as talent is concerned

Gasquet's FH is a weird case.
In certain situations, the guy can launch absolute monster FHs just using his wrist and racquet speed (look at his last match against federer).
But he seems incapable of using his body strenght to hit a FH, which is just a proof that his FH technique is very flawed rather than limited because of a lack of "hand" talent(don t know if people see what i mean).
How could his coaches not see his rally FH was flawed when he was still a child and not convince him to change it???
Just show again the terrible level of coaching in France.

1.Murray - mental midget, came up against stronger opponents.
2.Soderling - see Murray.
3.Nalbandian - fitness, choking.
4.Tsonga - fitness
5.Davydenko - didn't care enough, probably wasn't strong enough anyway.
6.Gasquet - choking, inconsistency, over-rated
7.Berdych - choking, inconsistency
8.Ferrer - not good enough

1.Murray - lack of a consistent penetrating forehand. Poor second serve. Reverting to defensive mode on the biggest points.
2.Soderling - insufficient defence for the modern game.
3.Nalbandian - lack of fitness, liability serve.
4.Tsonga - concentration problems, poor backhand, mediocre return, average defence.
5.Davydenko - mental problems against Federer, service yips. Now finished.
6.Gasquet - lack of movement and forehand.
7.Berdych - no big match mentality. Dodgy second serve under pressure. Sub-standard defence.
8.Ferrer - no serve, no weapons.

1.Murray - Should win a slam, won't win that many I think.
2.Soderling - He's been out for a year, but was a dangerous player who could win a slam when everything falls his way. has to get beck to that level.
3.Nalbandian - Great talent didn't make it and is pretty old now, so very little chance.
4.Tsonga - Big shots, like Soderling before, he can win a slam when he is a little lucky.
5.Davydenko - Was pretty close a few times, down at the moment and don't think he can come back to the top.
6.Gasquet - Never been really close, don't think he has enough potential(mainly physical)
7.Berdych - I feel he is a little less talented/good as Soderling and Tsonga. Small chance still there.
8.Ferrer - Don't really see him beating Nadal or Federer. See him more of a guy who could reach a final where he then gets bossed.

1.Murray - Federer, Djokovic, & Nadal
2.Soderling - Consistency? I really don't know
3.Nalbandian - The existence of Burger King
4.Tsonga - Consistency and lack of a brain. He has a lot of variety and sometimes employs it well, but sometimes he gets a little TOO experimental and just implodes
5.Davydenko - In the last few years, he definitely could win a slam. But I would guess that he's way too error-prone. He takes the ball SUPER early and on a bad day, it kills him. Right now, it seems that his better days are behind him.
6.Gasquet - Against today's field, he just isn't good enough, unfortunately.
7.Berdych - Consistency, but he isn't too far from putting it all together. He's getting older though and it's not like he was steamrolling the field during his younger days. Time is running out for him
8.Ferrer - I dunno. Too much running. :lol:

in a weaker era they could have been potential slam winners, top players of today are just too strong for them.
