Murray's level is higher than either Nadal or Federer at the moment, also Wawrinka, despite playing unbelievably in this tournament, will likely shit the draw for another 6months, though if he turns up for slams like he does then I guess it doens't matter how he fares in the smaller tournaments.

There is no big anything, theres the big one in Djokovic then a bunch of guys who can beat him on their day but can't consistently win like he can.

Fed aint won a slam in 3 years and Nadal is about to be ranked 10th. Be aswell including Bjorn Borg in your big 4.

He went infront of Del Potro and Cilic with 2 GS. Now he's on Murray level. :lol:
How so? Murray has a million times more slam finals/semi finals/masters title to his name than Wawrinka does. Though I think Wawrinka is a better big game player.

Out of the last 6 slams :

Djokovic : 2
Wawrinka : 2
Cilic : 1
Federer + Murray + Nadal : 1

As for the career achievements, the "big 4", if ever existed, remains the same: Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, Murray. Stan, despite I like him, has to add something to his CV to surpass Murray...

As for the actual results or form, Nadal arguably does not belong here. Federer is disputable (I don't want to judge according to RG results only). My opinion is...the best 4 players at this moment are Djokovic, Murray, Wawrinka and...most likely Federer.

There's only a Big One these days, and he goes by the name of Stan the Man :worship:

At the moment its Novak, Andy and Stan who look like threats at the big tournaments. Fed is finished although Rafa may come back next year.

Um, if you're going to remove one of the four and replace it with Wawrinka that should probably be Nadal rather than Murray, based on the fact that this year Murray has lost out only to Djokovic and is only behind him and Wawrinka in results, while Nadal is flirting with dropping from the top 10... Djokovic, Federer, Murray and Wawrinka are in fact the current top 4, so that should probably have been your argument.

Anyway "the big 4" were just something from a couple of years ago. It didn't mean there would be no new champions - there isn't going to be a constant "big 4" with new players taking the place of old ones.
