Let's see...

Murray + Lendl =

Djokovic
1. Defeated the BEST Returner the game has ever seen, a 100% healthy Djokovic, on Djoker's BEST surface, Hard Court on the world's hardest GS to win under the most unrelenting surface anyoe has ever played the US Open in history, on five gruleing sets, metally stronger and physically more fit.

Federer
2. Dismanteld and dispatched (after a sad loss at Wilmbeldon, wake-up call, waking sleeping Giant), humiliated the World's #1 Player, the GOAT Roger Federer, playing at his highest level, being #1,in the world again, dominating the men's field all year, and better than every other tennis player in the men's game, on his BEST surface, Grass Court, on his HOME turf, Wimbledon Center Court, on the world's largest stage, Olympics, winning the Olympic Gold...nuff said...spin away.....

everyone knows Roger Federer dreamed as a little boy winning the ultimate prize of an olympic gold medal..... you see, wininng wimbeldon is easy for Roger...it's nothing special for him...but that elusive Gold medal burned inside not winning it... like lendl was burning for that one elusive wimbeldon title, and gave it his all but came up short....Roger gave it his all for olympic gold, but Murray 2.0 was too much for the world's #1 and GOAT on his best surface....

Making Andy Murray 2.0 (since 2012 Wimbldon loss) a force for 2013...Nadal is out of the equation....Rosol took care of Nadal's game forever

Welcome the NEW Andy Murray 2.0 to take hold of 2013, winning 2 GS at least.

It's a brand new day, people...it's a brand new day.

No, just saying...Lendl said himself in an interview in 1987, he considered his career started in 1984, AFTER winning the French Open, even though he played since 1978 as a pro...

Fast forward to 2012:

Andy Murray's career is NOW beginning in 2012, AFTER winning the Olympic Gold and dispatching a 100% healthy Djokovic who was playing lights out all US Open...Andy is soooo young right now...and healthy and fit..and has the best coach in men's tennis... Look for Lendl' tennis academy to boost in enrollment and sponsors

So, with Lendl & Murray at the helm, Look for Lendl to instill in Murray NOT to rest on his laurels and if he thought the grind of fitness and workouts were tough BEFORE.... Andy hasn't seen anything yet from Lendl...as Lendl will make sure Andy doubles down on diet nurtirion and fitness and workouts not get complacent anymore...where people actually FEAR Andy Murray....you can all laugh now, and belittle the US open win against the best returner the game has ever seen playing at his higest level....he got beat by a better hungrier Murray, better fit and better coached.... but Djoker turned it around after 2010 US open...no? LOL

its a brand new day...not comparing 1 grand slams to to 5 or to 17...no, rather this is the BEGINNING of the next 6-8 years of Andy Murray challening now for GS titles...ala edberg or becker... 5-7 GS titles before his career is over....

so not saying hi one GS is better than anyone...rather to get his 1st GS, he dispatched the 2 dominating players of 2012, THIS year prior to his first GS...and on their best surfaces, playing at their very best!

he only has to have 4 consecutive years of calendar year grand slams to tie the GOAT'S slam count.

Think about that.. 16 CONSECUTIVE slams (which we know is impossible) to TIE the GOAT.

Cant have it both ways

1. Federer regained no. 1, another GS, playing highest level over evetyone else..... Yet if he loses, its cause he is now old? LOL

Federer is the goat of his era, period, and Murray knows how to beat the worlds no. 1 player and no. 2 player, not choking, but being clutch through all adversity

Face it federer is no. 1, but got beat by murray, start of new era.... And joker is awesome but now has to worry about murray now....murray knows how to win now and it took wimbledon loss to start fresh

You're right. Federer is in his prime. His prime is in fact so (conveniently) long that his younger peers have had time to catch up and overtake him. He's a sucker isn't he that Federer?

Matter of fact Maurice Green is probably still in his prime but he is too scared to race against Ussain Bolt. And Lauda is also in his prime but Vettel is much better.

Tennis didn't start with Federer and it most definitely did not start with Murray. You must be quite an embarrassment to the otherwise balanced and mature group of Murray supporters here.

Notice how *******s and jokertards are now threatened by the NEW kid on the bloc with confidence of steel, knocking out in one-two fashion, federer #1 at wimbeldon for gold medal, playing his best tennis....and joker on joker's playground on hardcourts in dominating fashion?

murray is just getting started...cant compare resume yet...wont catch federer, but can easily take away a few GS from nadal, federer and djoker and delpo and berdych and raoinc and anyone else, with Lendl....

just incase you didnt notice federer was a 31 year old who played a marathon match was del potro previously while Murray played only 2 sets. Its not that Murray was hitting winners left and right. Federers balls were going out. Yes Murray should get credit for it by he go helped by a handful of fed shanks. The answer to Murray 2.0 is Jeremy Chardy LMAO!!!! I was supporting Murray full on after fed lost in the QF but dont turn it into more than it actually is. Murray is faaaaaaaaaaar from the likes of Federer, Nadal and Djokovic

"2.0" is street slang for "actually playing to their potential"

for those that are "slow"

Djokovic 2.0 = Winning AO in 2012, after his tough loss at the US Open in 2010, then going on a tear and winning 9 titles, and new confidence with new workout and fitness and diet

Federer 2.0 = Going Grand Slam-less for 2+ years, then regaining #1 world ranking, wininng GS #17, masteing all opponents again, as he turns 31, hence a new chapter of his playing.

Murray 2.0 = 0-3 in GS finals PRIOR to Ivan Lendl's hiring...known as "choke job".... the NEW improved Muray 2.0 is 2-0 against Joker US Open and Olympics in 2012 AFTER Lendl, and 1-0 v. Federer, AFTER Wimbledon...winnin Olympic Gold, somthing Roger can never ever win, ever......with new fitness, workouts and diet and Lendl dominating Men's tennis coaching.... Lendl's help gives even MORE prestige to Ivan Lendl's career, and an increase into his own tennis academy, and Lendl could do what no one else could do...

help Andy Murray destroy and crush the top 2 players in the world, on their best surfaces, playing at their highest level, hence Federer is #1 for no reason, other than being THE BEST, right? and Djoker was the BEST on hardcourts the past 2 years, right? And Joker is the BEST return of server the game has EVER seen, right?

Murray 2.0 PWNED them now.

Nadal = slips back down to 1.0, after getting forced into early retirement by tennis hack, 4.5 level player in Lukas Rosol, at Wimbeldon...

It's a brand new day, folks...yes, it's a brand new day, with Murray 2.0 leaving the 'old andy murray" behind, now Federer, and Djokovic and even Del Potro the rest of the bunch, ave to "worry" about Andy Murray's confidence and higher-level of play on the tour.

So why was Fed 2.0 , he did not start slow so if you are referring Fed of 2012, its better to refer him as Fed version :: 3 unleashed . (started strong, took a slight dip, and again won a GS but not his peak). You contradict yourself now dont you ? :|

Antonio Puente

Look, I was pulling for Murray, but in no way have I sensed he's jumped to another level - 2.0. Wimbledon - he missed Nadal and Djoker. Olympics - no Nadal in the equation. USO - missed Fed and Nadal. The USO final? Hell, that was excruciating. He did everything he could to blow the match vs. Djoker.

I'm glad he broke through and won a slam, but the whole dominant, 2.0 thing completely misses the target. He doesn't look anything like Djoker 2011.

Just be happy with the slam and let the guy play.

Because federer never slowed down until he didnt win a GS in two years, he was always federer 1.0 until his drought...... then He wins another in 2012 when everyone wrote him off to prove he is still playing at his highest leve ever by REACHING no. 1 ranking! Hence Federer 2.0 at age 31....-hence federer 2.0 and Murray 2.0 thrashed Federer on the world biggest stage in tennis giving federer his worse loss ever in his career at the olympics...thanks to Murray 2.0. Federer is No. 1 in the world! And murray 2.0 owns federer and joker, NOW. Nadal needs to get by lukas rosol before entering any equation anymore.... Rosol took care of nadals career for good.

djokovic played a horrible match.... Federer would take Murray in straight set yesterday.. something is not right with Djokovic.. his forehand, backhand.. slice.. everything seem too much spin with little depth now adays.. Djoko seemed to fight 2 opponents: Murray and the wind. Still, he shanked at really bad times, missed some opportunities (especially in the 1st set TB), slipped a lot (what was up with that?), his movement was nowhere near as fluid as it can be and Murray is a difficult matchup for Djoko to begin with. It's not like this was the first hard court match he had ever lost to Murray and I can guarantee it won't be the last. Their record on that surface is as tight as can be: 6-6 overall and 2-2 this year. However, even with all those problems, I'm convinced Djoko would have won the match if he had not run out of gas completely in the 5th. He's a better fighter in general but the 5th is where those 3 days in a row of play kicked in and he simply had no physical energy left.

wasn't that prior to Ivan Lendl? LOL

a pre Lendlized Murray beat the Don 62 60 in 48 mins at the Thailand Open. Remember that.

Murray 2.0 would have double bagelled Young in 30 mins probably.

While I think maybe the pressure was on Murray when he was in his 2nd or 3rd GS finals to not lose I think by the time he was in GS final #4 and #5 there really wasn't as much pressure because at that point he was sort of expected to choke again. Only the media would hype it all up. It it were me and I was 0-4 in finals and now had my 5th chance, I'd sort of take it with a grin and just play hard with just normal pressure (ie, to win) but none of that carrying my whole country on my back pressure. I think that's why Murray came through. And even then he almost blew a 2-0 set lead. Who knows if it hadn't been so windy, Novak may have 1 or 2 of the first two sets and the whole complexion of the match would've changed. I don't think we're seeing a new Murray here. He made it to both of his last two GS finals without having to face any of the other big 4. I think his confidence is sky high right now, but frankly I don't think he won because he's playing like a new man.

While we're on this topic, I don't think Fed has been much of a new man in the last year either. He had an unlucky couple of years where he lost some close matches at the Slams (especially Wimby '11 against Tsonga, and USO '10 and '11 against Djokovic) and this year the wind of fortune has turned back in his favor. Djokovic, on the other hand, clearly raised his level of play in 2011. He played like a man possessed - but that's over now and he's back to Djokovic 1.0 more or less although can't deny he's having a great year making it to 3 GS finals.

Murray 2.0 > than Federer 2.0 & Djokovic 2.0 - in the USO 2012.

You're only as good as your last hit. Federer disembowelled him at Wimbledon and the Olympic final was skewed massively in Murray's favour by Del Potro. Let's see how Murray finishes the year before we get too carried away.

Substitute Novak for Murray, Nadal for Federer, and Federer for Djokovic in the OPs title, and you have
Novak 2.0>prime Nadal>Federer 'playing better than ever,'
or a thread title nearly identical to one which was created last year in the middle of Novak's awesome run before reality set in and we were reminded once again that such things as top form run not indefinitely but in cycles or bursts.

I'm a Murray fan but the OP is getting a bit carried away. Murray has just won his 1st Slam in 5 attempts and did it by beating the defending champion, Djokovic. Kudos to him for that.

But the other top 4 players are all multi-Slam winners and all have beaten each other in Slams many times. Murray has yet to beat Federer in a Slam (although he has come close with the Olympic win).

Murray has made a great start by finally finishing the year as a Slam winner but he has much work to do in order to consolidate it and repeat the feat and begin to match the achievements of the other top 4 players. Hopefully the USO win will have given him the necessary confidence to start doing so.

Let's see...

Murray + Lendl =

Djokovic
1. Defeated the BEST Returner the game has ever seen, a 100% healthy Djokovic, on Djoker's BEST surface, Hard Court on the world's hardest GS to win under the most unrelenting surface anyoe has ever played the US Open in history, on five gruleing sets, metally stronger and physically more fit.

Federer
2. Dismanteld and dispatched (after a sad loss at Wilmbeldon, wake-up call, waking sleeping Giant), humiliated the World's #1 Player, the GOAT Roger Federer, playing at his highest level, being #1,in the world again, dominating the men's field all year, and better than every other tennis player in the men's game, on his BEST surface, Grass Court, on his HOME turf, Wimbledon Center Court, on the world's largest stage, Olympics, winning the Olympic Gold...nuff said...spin away.....

everyone knows Roger Federer dreamed as a little boy winning the ultimate prize of an olympic gold medal..... you see, wininng wimbeldon is easy for Roger...it's nothing special for him...but that elusive Gold medal burned inside not winning it... like lendl was burning for that one elusive wimbeldon title, and gave it his all but came up short....Roger gave it his all for olympic gold, but Murray 2.0 was too much for the world's #1 and GOAT on his best surface....

Making Andy Murray 2.0 (since 2012 Wimbldon loss) a force for 2013...Nadal is out of the equation....Rosol took care of Nadal's game forever

Welcome the NEW Andy Murray 2.0 to take hold of 2013, winning 2 GS at least.

It's a brand new day, people...it's a brand new day.

Just a reality check for ya.

Wait... Where is Murray 1.0, first of all, to start with?

This IS Murray 1.0 -- he has just started... Let him win 3 more ocnsecutive GS to finish his 1.0 resume, then go down losing his 4th consecutive GS final to Roger Federer 2.5 (Or 3.0, however you want to version it) and then look at Murray 2.0


Damn...!! :evil:

Ok, lets assume:

Early Federer was 0.5
Federer 2001 was 1.0
2003 was 2.0 then i'd assume
He improved in 2004, then in 05, then again in 06
Maintained his form in 07
Dipped slightly in 08
Resurged in 09/early 10
Dipped in form from then until USO 2011
Maintained good form since then even at 30+

So what number would you rank him?
The point is this 1.0 2.0 stuff is stupid.
