    I've never liked Murray. The first time I've seen him play back in 2007 I didn't like him. And you bring up the Olympic gold match like it means much. Federer has defeated Murray in three slam finals. 3 slams is greater than 1 Olympic gold medal in tennis. Heck even one slam means more to tennis players than winning a gold medal.

    Btw how are you finding the current season? It must be tough as a Murray fan.
    Yes of course give me a Grand Slam as a tennis player anyday, but to be called an individual Olympic Champion... That is the pinnacle of all sport and Federer will never get it despite his greatness apparently lol.

    It's tough but it's been almost a year since he had MAJOR surgery on his back so to make 2 Grand Slam QF's and a Semi in Paris isn't that bad. I mean there's been nothing to cheer about as a Murray fan but at least I wasn't sobbing over final losses to Tsonga and Wawrinka and that Wimbledon final to Novak...

    You are obviously not familiar with tennis history. Olympics didn't mean anything till 2008. All time great players like Sampras didn't even care enough about the Olympics and he would normally skip it to focus on the us open a slam.

    And at least Federer at 33 is playing better than Murray is at 27. I dread how Murray will play at 33.

    Sampras he's another one better than Roger - 14 slams and less of an arrogant person. Of course he would be Murray's just come back from major surgery on his back what would you expect? And if Murray is so inferior and rubbish as you say, despite him winning 2 majors and competing at the highest level since 08, isn't it a bit low then to say how much better Federer is playing than him?

    I never said Murray is rubbish and neither did I say that his 2 major victories weren't impressive. I only said I don't like him which seemed to have hurt your precious little feelings.
