I don't understand why people think Murray is better than Federer. I know he's world number 1 atm but just really if Federer didn't have those injuries he would be soo good. Plus he;s getting old as well
Remeber the days where it always between Nadal and Federer? Miss those times

He has had a great career to have won 3 Grand Slams and 2 Olympic golds, and now been World no.1, considering the era he has played in. He has reached 6 other Grand Slam finals which he lost to Djokovic or Federer so had he played in another era you could potentially have added another three or four Grand Slams on to his career total.
I wouldn't put him in the all time elite of the game category, eg Federer, Djokovic, Nadal, Sampras, Agassi, Lendl.
However I would put him alongside other top class players, like Becker, Edberg, McEnroe.

Overall, I think it's well deserved that Murray gets a stint of Number1.
no-one is saying this equals being the G.O.A.T, or even that he suddenly becomes one of the legends of the game.
I admit to being a "murray fanboy" as someone earlier mentioned, but, all bias aside, he is an incredibly talented player, who has has the incredible fortune and misfortune to play in this era.
He has been misfortunate in that his GS tally is much lower than it would have been otherwise (but this also applies to Federer, Djokovic, and Nadal- imagine how many slams each of them would have won if they hadn't been competing against each other)
On the contrary, he has been motivated by these "G.O.A.Ts" to improve the game way beyond what it would have been if he was casually winning GSs against the rest of the top 20 had Fed, Djok and Nadal not have been playing in this time period.
I agree with the previous post which puts him on par with Becker, McEnroe etc.
