    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 is 26 now and all players start to decline around 27/28. Look at Federer, Sampras, McEnroe, Nadal. They have all declined and given Murray's boring, passive and defensive style of play, it's very unlikely his body will hold up in his 30s. Obviously, Murray isn't as graceful as Federer, so he ain't winning any slams in his 30s. The most number of slams won by any player after turning 26 is 6 by Federer and Lendl.

    And even if Murray breaks all sorts of records (impossible), I'll still be one of his biggest hatters.

    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.
    He's not a great yet but he can definitely become one if he retains the us open and in the furture win Aussie open and French when Fedal has gone.

    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?
    Murray has got bigger problems than Fedal and Nole on clay my friend.

    winning X titles - is not the only way to become a great..

    winning a career grandslam would be another (only 7 men to ever do this)

    or even a golden grand slam, (only 2 men)

    Both could be achieved within 2-3 years of murray still being fit/healthy..


    now im not saying he will, - infact its hugely unlikely..

    But..

    Not impossible as some people here seem to suggest..

    Thought Murray was fantastic today his defensive play from the baseline was the best I've ever seen from him. That being said was very surprised by Novak today- anyone else thinking that he was approaching the net far too much and playing lots of drop shots. Murrays speed across the court meant he picked them off at ease. Strategy was bonkers! When he was dominant at the start of the second the points were far longer and forced the issue in the right way.

    Well just checked house prices in Paris. Too expensive. Melbourne is expensive as well but Murray has a good chance of winning it so no point relocating there.

    Just have to wait out these dark days of tennis. The only people supporting Murray are mindless Brit drones.i dont know a single actual tennis fan who was supporting Mugray.

    Well look at my avi that should give a huge clue .

    I also support generally attacking players like Jo-Willy, Del Wristro, Haas, Wawrinka, Rosol.

    By the way did anyone catch Alex Salmond hogging a giant Scottish flag when Murray clinched the final point?

    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).
    I'll ask you again since you seemed to miss my last post, why are you so pessimistic about tennis mate?

    If he gets a career grand slam, then he'll have a career golden slam

    He could do it - I can see him winning the australian open but not the french open tbh
