    Yeah, he could go on beyond 28 though, late peak - late decline.
    Exactly! No reason why he cannot maintain this until he's 30. His conditioning is superb and I see a lack of genuine new grand slam contenders making the breakthrough in the next few years.

    Nadal looks very strong on clay and hard.
    Would be good to see if Murray can retain US open though.
    I want Nadal to win US Open or Delpo after that I wouldn't mind if Murray Retained his us open title.

    The second last point he played before winning the slam was the best in the match.

    Sigh, hopefully Nadal/Federer are out there watching the scenes somewhere. It doesn't seem like Novak is too bithered about saving tennis, it's up to Fedal (Nadal especially as he knows exactly how to destroy Murray).

    2 GS don't make you a great. 7/8+ does. Can Murray win that many slams? I doubt it.

    And tennis is not just a British sport, it's a worldwide sport. So maybe in the eyes of British, he is one of the greats, but non-British will always regard Federer, Nadal, Sampras, Laver and Borg as one of the greatest.
    People like you also said he'll never win a single slam. I'm pretty confident he will have a good go at winning 7 slams. 5 more and he's going to be playing for another 7-8 years. That's 32 goes he's got at it and it'll be he, Nadal, Novak and maybe JMDP that'll be winning the slams for the next 4/5 years. Very feasible for him to get.

    But when he gets there, you guys will change the threshold.

    FWIW the greatness talk is rather moot and pointless.

    Murray was the best player over the last weeks. You can't claim he had an easy draw (he beat the ****ing world number one in straight sets), and those saying his style of play is somehow wrong or impure are, I suspect, bitter fanboys of those who went out much earlier in the tournament.

    Is Murray a "great" with 2 grand slams? Absolutely not, it's a ridiculous notion. Could he become a great? How long's a piece of string.

    Glad I wasn't watching this thread during the match.

    I don't see the problem with describing him as "great". There are only something like 47 people who have won a slam in the open era and around half of those have won more than one. So, if you're only one of 20-something people to have done something in a game that will have been played by thousands, then I'm happy to call him great.

    Still its a positive for Nadal atleast he never lost in 3 sets djokovic lost in his prime in 3 sets in his prime lol. Thanks to Murray and hopefully Murray can somehow grab Austalien open if Nadal doesn't and in few years time when Fedal has retired Murray may grab a French Open look at it this way Nole is injured due to sliding too much on hard and grass, Fedal has retired who's the Favorite to win the French open Andy Murray?
