Yes, it is clearly Murray.

He achieved a lot with pushing, despite having a weak forehand and second serve.

Murray is not a pusher as he can NOT push if wants. He choses to do it when it makes sense as he grew smarter over the years.

Pushing is generally a sensible tactic...

Pushing is suboptimal and boring tactic which maybe prevented Pushray from being a better rival to the Big 3 at slams, and more popular and appreciated among tennis fans around the world.

It's obviously Andy Murray.

He won 3 slams by capitalising on others making errors. He was the opposite of a go-getter.

Ironically, he was the type to shout and scream when others would spank winners past him, when his pushing didn't work and the opponent rose above it.

Andy Murray may have been utterly void of charisma, but he had a lot of determination and he was an exemplary professional in his preparation. He really lived for tennis and that's why he won as much as he did, with as little talent as he had.

Gilles Simon.
For real, at least Murray attacks every now and then and has weapons, Simon is without a doubt the most boring player I’ve ever seen. Absolutely no weapons and practically never does anything but hit 50 mph shots to the middle of the court.

Gillou once said something along these lines: "I'm not as talented as other players, but every ball I send back into my opponent's court gives me a chance to win."

It's Wilander obviously. How can everyone say Murray when there was a guy who won more than twice as much with even less weapons? He was the biggest overachiever ever.

Murray destroyed his career when he bulked up in around 2011.

If he had remained like in 2008, he could have had Djokovic-like longevity. Honestly, his backhand was a thing of beauty, forehand and serve solid at his best.

Watch a few points from this, if you dare:


Surely the worst level of entertainment in a GS final ever. They should have refused to hand out the trophy to the winner.
