    Let me try again.

    Roger: I heard you made your first finals here by beating Youznhy....
    Nadal: Not a big deal. Youznhy is a puppet, no?



    [​IMG]

    Youznhy: Who said that?

    Federer (thinking): I bet your knees won't be the only problem now.

    Murray: what about me ?

    A dumpest poll is where one answers questions on where to put their trash.
    Aslam is a new religion, an off-shoot of Islam. Followers are called Maslems.

    Better serve - Murray
    Better return - Murray
    Better backhand - you guessed it, Murray
    Better dropshot = LOL
    better mental strength - yet again Murray

    So what does Nole have again ?

    A slam.

    And I'd give Nole the edge on mental strength given his USO/other performances.

    Shot by shot breakdowns are not a good way of comparing players IMHO. Though I still hold hope that Murray will end up the better when both's career are over, that hope is dwindling and dwindling.

    Dropshot Murray
    Mental Strength: Murray
    Volley: Murray
    Slice: Murray
    Movement: Murray

    Lob: Murray

    Djokovic wins because he has 1 slam.

    Like I said, these shot to shot comparisons are always virtually meaningless. But how can Djoker have the better 2nd serve, when he's the only top 10 player w/ more DF's than aces?

    EDIT: Actually he doesn't anymore, but at one point he did.

    Djokovic - 284 aces/277 double faults
    Murray - 497 aces/144 double faults

    I think at least this season, Murray clearly has the better serve.

    Oke, Murray also has a better 2nd serve. He can have the forehand too, as long as Djokovic keeps his 1 slam lead and holds on his current rank I'm satisfied.

    Thiis is a question to everyone - if Murray wins the AO, or any other slam, will he at that point surpass Djokovic?
     
  18. Yes, but where does Blake fit into this equation? :)

    Yoda and i were kidding. Yoda was saying Murray can have everything in the world better than Đoković, yes everything, but Đoković still has a slam.

    News !!

    funbun just added one vote.

    Whilst we all joke, i must laud batz on his maturity in taking all this tardism. Anyone in his place would have lost it and got banned long ago.

    In the long run, Muzza will end up with more slams than Đokovic, more titles, more kids, everything

    ..... but better teeth ;)
     
  28. This thread needs more spam. I'm counting on you guys.


    Please spam away until there is a nuclear holocaust.

    Better career so far is obviously Djokovic, better player is probably Murray.

    Pre-slam favorite for many many slams. Murray.

    Home favorite at Wimbledon. Murrrrrrayyy !

    But you forgot something:

    Winning a single slam: Djokovic

    Winning one less: Murray

    Not winning a slam: duh

    Havin 0 slams: Murrrray

    It's so one-sided that I can't really comprehend it. :shock:


    Now, on a more serious note: If Murray wins the AO he still won't have the better career: They'll both have one slam, Murray will have the edge in MS titles, but Djokovic will still have the YEC. Add his higher ranking for most of their careers and he still has somewhat better career. This is, of course, if Murray doesn't win the WTF thie year.

    I'd give the slight edge to Djokovic. The AO win is a big factor, in terms of the past. In terms of more recent results, that win over Federer in the 2010 US Open semifinal, especially considering how he prevailed in crunch time, is another factor in my estimation. That win showed me something about Djokovic. He's got it in him to produce big results. Murray, I think also has it in him to be able to win a major, and maybe majors. Yet, up until now, it's Djokovic by the slightest of margins.

    ^^ I don't think the margin is that slight, but I guess your mileage may vary.

    If Murray wins the next AO, I'd say his career is pretty even with Djoker. They'd be tied at 1 major each, Murray would have a slight edge in Masters titles and Djoker would have the YEC edge(Assuming Murray doesn't also win the 2010 YEC).
