He also could hit double digits at the master series in 2012.
He will have to beat Cvac to do it. He is the only player standing in his way of winning a slam. Maybe Fed as well,so if he can get through both of them he has a shot.
I think the Australian Open is his best bet.
Tennis fans have been talking about this the last few years, but it hasn't happened yet. Murray needs to sort out his "head" first before he can achieve this. He certainly has the talent to win a slam tournament that's for sure.
What about Nadal? He lost to Nadal in last 2 grand slams. Fed, Djoker, Nadal are problem for him for important matches. He needs to get over this pressure to win a slam.
Last 3, beat him the French too :/
Murray can beat Nadal in a slam, we know that, but so far he hasn't shown he's capable of overcoming Federer or Djokovic.
His best chances are in the AO and the USO, if he gets a good draw, and can sort his head out, he could make it this year.
He's only played Novak and Fed in finals. I have no real way of knowing this but I think he'd put up a better showing against them in an earlier rd (at least be able to take a set).
I think Murray winning Wimbledon would be amazing.
Murray is more than capable of beating Nadal in slams or anywhere else for that matter. He needs to worry about how he will beat Cvac or Fed. He doesn't need to worry about Nadal whatsoever.
I do too, he'll win a slam someday, 2012 is as good of a time as ever I think. If Novak has a slip-up it's there for the taking.
What kind of statement is this when Nadal beat him at the last 3 slams straight? If u don't think he has to worry about him, that's your opinion, but adding "whatsoever" to the end made it complete NONSENSE. 2 out of 3 matches, Nadal beats Murray.
Definitely Murray can win at least a slam in his career. He's one of the best players in his generation (maybe only after Nole) so sooner or later we'll see him lift a slam cup.
I think it'll happen this AO 12.
No, Nadal, Djokovic and Delpo will dominate with Murray getting to 2 or 3 slam finals.
Imagine Murray ending up with 18 masters to Agassi's 17. But 0 slams to Agassi's 8.
Id love to see it but just dont xpect it
We shall see,but I am pretty certain that the tide has turned in that match-up after what happened in Tokyo. Murray need not worry one iota about facing Nadal anywhere.
should've been a public poll
If I were to bet I would say no
I hope for Murray to rise above himself.
I'm staying optimistic that he'll win one, and this is the year.
No telling what can happen.
You were doing okay with the first 2 but lol at Delpo. Delpo is not going to dominate anybody in 2012 although he does have a good chance of getting back into the top 10!
Where does Murray have better chances? AO or USO?
Mibbes aye, mibbes naw. Will 2012 be an easier place to win a slam than the last 3 or 4 years have been? I don't see many signs of things getting easier for him.
No, he can't. We've already decided that 2012 will be the year for Nadal to win his YCGS. The golden one because the this year is Olympic.
I've forgotten in which thread it was proposed and unanimously sustained, but it has happened today.
And, please, can you find some other smile. This one is to fat.
Australia. Courts are much more suited to him and the scheduling is much better, prioritising rest and not effected by bad weather. And I think the support is way better for him there too.
Voted no cuz I have visions of Tim Henman's career...
But I sincerely hope Murray does win one or multiple. I like his game a lot.
He was prett close at AO, he was very close to beating Djokovic
His best chances are at Wimbledon and USO in my opinion this year. RG seems out of reach with both Nadal and Djoker gunning in such epic fashion for the title. Higher chances at USO than Wimbledon since he won't have the pressure of G.B. on his shoulders and we might see a tired Nadal and Djoker heading into the USO after the RG/Wimbly/Olympics swing. Should beat Federer if they meet in a Slam again, no way Lendy Murray Verison 2012 will go down in straight sets again, but you almost feel like Lendy needs one of his "pigeons" like Del Potro or Berdych to knock out some Top 4 players in order for Lendy to have a chance. Even still, I'd give the edge to Del Potro in a GS final vs Murray, despite the horrific match-up and H2H record, just based on past "big match" moments from the two.
Of course, will re-assess again after Dubai/IW/Miami. If Lendy scores some big victories against the Top 4 there (especially vs Federer and Nadal), then I truly believe he'll take USO this year. He already matches up very well against Djoker as we saw in Cincy last year and AO 2012. He's looking very impressive to me so far in 2012.
Do u enjoy embarrassing nadal fan in such a way )
By the way IMO 2012 will be year when everyone will be convinced that lendy/Andy or whatever murray is not going to win a slam.
From next year onwards Henman hill will be officially renamed as Murray mud at wimbledon.
Sorry andy just focus at playstation. you look very happy over there.
Is that so? I've a better idea. How about you stick to playstation rather than boring us all on here with your rather puerile comments!
Looks like he will then, based on the closeness of his SF at the AO vs Djokovic. Although Nadal has a much bigger mental edge over Murray. Imagine Murray beating Nadal in a GS final :lol: after not being able to beat Nadal in 3 GS semis last year....
In fact, Murray hasn't even been able to take Rafa to 5 sets in those last 3 slam semis. He matches up a lot better with Djokovic.
You could see a change in Murray's mentality and aggression in this year's AO. Give Lendl more time to work with Murray and I'm thinking a Wimbledon or USO title is a real possibility.
That should be funny, because that was pretty much the same situation with Djokovic until 2011.
IMO Murray and Djokovic are almost identical, so if Murray somehow overcomes that mental block, he'd be as poor a matchup for Nadal as Djokovic is.
However, if Rafa finds an answer to Djokovic, Rafa can employ virtually the same strategy against Murray.
Looks like a potential win-all or lose-all situation for Rafa.
Murrya can beat Nadal much easier than he can beat Djesus. I don't see Nadal being much of an obstacle this year when they meet. The tables turned in that match-up after Nadal lost badly in the final in Tokyo.
And my comment still stands. Murrya will have to go through Djesus if he wants to win a slam. It still remains to be seen if he can do it or not.
Oh,I would like to ask you just how many accounts you have on this forum,Bullzilla? It's got to be more than a dozen by now. :lol:
Why are you so much obsessed with murray and i didn't suggest you anything so please don't advice me what should i do.
Yeah that Tokyo match reminded me of when the Japanese player bagelled Djokovic in the 3rd set at Basel. That was funny. Djokovic won 2 points lol. Really though the most impressive performance I ever saw from Murray was when he thrashed Rafa at 2010 AO.
as much as I love Murray, I disagree that Novak and Andy are 'almost identical'. Novak is a better player. Better 1st and 2nd serve, MUCH BETTER FH and that's a big deal. Nole covers the court better (although Murray is great too). Djokovic simply is doing everything a bit better than Andy.
Murray look like a giant from 2-5 in the 5th set, racing back to 5-5. Was an unbelievable level with clean winners galore.
That could be advantage Federer as well.
Not in my opinon. This is not 2008. I really don't think Federer is winning a Slam again, even if Djoker and Nadal are tired from Olympics and he draws Lendy in the final. Lendy Murray Version 2012 will not lose 3-0 to Fed in a Slam final again.
Of course this is just my opinion and I could be wrong. Time will tell...
I have to agree. Fed isn't getting any younger and Murray certainly showed glimpses of what he is capable of in the AO semifinal. The next time Fed and Murray meet at a slam, I think Murray will most likely pull off a win. If Murray meets Nadal in a semifinal , it will be advantage Murray as well.
I'm not obsessed with Murray but I do get irritated when posters like you show him no respect. You felt free to offer him 'advice' about sticking to playstation, why? Would you advise all the other players ranked below him to do the same, the vast majority of whom have never and probably will never come as close to winning a Slam as Murray has?
No-one's asking you to like Murray or expect you to say he will win a Slam, just to treat him with the respect justified by his #4 ranking and achievements to date.
If you can't do that then go and post on another thread about a player you do like!
The amount of disrespect I see for Murray EVERYWHERE online is disgusting. I'm not a huge fan but I respect the guy a lot, he has had some great matches/tourneys and just hasn't pulled off a Slam *yet*. Totally believe in him, though. Can't believe some other idiot Delpo fans claiming that Delpo is "real" Top 4 now that he's back. What bull****. Even as a Delpo fan I feel that Murray is the more crafty player and more consistent and has a better overall career so far. Plus, Murray has much more respectable H2H against Feds, ******, Djoker than Delpo does.
Just don't listen to these trolls. Lendy's time is coming.
It is a matter of time before Murray wins a slam. There will be a lot of threads to be bumped and crow to be eaten when that happens
If Delpoopoo ever wins a 2nd Slam, I'll be bumping the "Delpo: A One Slam Wonder?" thread and trolling the SHIZNIT out of Delpo bashers lol.
Of course, I will also participate in the bumping of threads and Muzza-hater-trolling when (not if, it's a question of when) Muzza wins a Slam LOL.
You are really starting to grow on me
