    What is "maintainance"?

    I can't find it in the dictionary.
     
  3. Yeah, I know it's supposed to be "Maintenance"


    The person who made the gif spelled it wrong.

    maintenance it's a misspelling, it means like "offline for repairs"

    I am only half way thru this. You need to redo this. Too many "dot" "dash" "hyphen" "etch em em em" for "hmmm".

    Đoković 's name coming as "vic" and not "which"...

    I think the girl should keep saying "I don't care" as he talks. there's too much of the guy talking non-stop.

    Nice try though. Keep it up.

    p.s. Also, you need to have some kind of rollover after each post.

    There is no way murray could have had a better career than djokovic. Djokovic has better achievements than murray and has won more grand slams than him. I have to say murray is still a good player and has been successful at times but for now its djokovic.

    I agree Gloobisfan#1,Murray is the right choice here and should rightfully get more votes.

    There are 2 very important reasons why Murray had a better career so far:

    -He beat GOAT Rafa 2(!) times in slams,has Novak ever beaten Nadal even once in a slam? Didn't think so.

    -He won the real slam-Cincinnati(again something Novak never did)and he even did it by beating Novak in the final.

    Very interesting Murray has never beaten Federer in a slam while he has beaten twice Nadal, and Djokovic has beaten several times Federer on slams but never Nadal.

    I'll be bumping this thread after Muurya wins SW19 and RG. btw, nice to see you again, Gloobisfan!! Any chance, you've had time to work on your youtube skills :D

    Even though i am a Đoković fan, i have to admit that I dont think Jokers phenomenal run tarnishes the majesty of Murray's game.

    Andy is not a "slam specialist". He tweeted that Slams are endurance events. And that "slams are spam". He focuses on the real stuff, Masters, where you play back to back. He has promised to win a slam occasionally just to show everyone who is the real boss (RG 2011, i believe).

    I'm a Murray fan but it's a no-brainer that Djokovic's career has been the greater one so far.

    Djokovic = 2 Grand Slams,1 WTF, 9 Masters 1000s and 12 other titles.

    Murray = 0 Grand Slams,0 WTF, 6 Masters 1000s and 10 other titles.

    Results can't lie!

    Please count Cincy Slams, too.

    I still say Andy, since he won Cincy this year.


    Hahahahah, I'm reading through this and some of the posts are hilarious. :D Mods, plz don't delete it.

    The answer was always Djokovic, at every point in time BEFORE his incredible 2011. It was never even close either.
     
  36. yes sir :cry::cry::cry::cry:

    LOL at the 21 people voting for Murray. What were you ever thinking. Murray never had more Masters titles (ok he briefly had 1 more in late 2010, nothing sufficient), he never had more tournament titles, he had never ended a year ranked higher than Djokovic, and Djokovic already had a slam, and ATP Championships, long before this year.

    I always think 2010 must have been fairly close. Both made the final and semi of a Major though Djokovic also made two quarters, Murray only a 3rd and 4th round. Both won just 2 titles in 2010 though Murray's were Masters titles, Djokovic's only 500s and Djokovic never even made the final of a Masters. Both made the semis of the WTF and both dropped one match in the round-robins.

    So I can't see how they could have been that far apart in 2010 although Djokovic's overall career achievements were always superior especially with his slam and previous WTF titles.

    In 2011 of course, Djokovic quickly put a vast body of blue water between them again career-wise.

    You are talking about just the year 2010. This thread is not about that, it is about their overall careers. At no point in time did Murray's overall career come even close to Djokovic's. Yes they were close in 2009 and 2010 based on their performances in those years alone only, but what Djokovic had achieved in 2007 and 2008 still had him far ahead overall. With similar achievements in Masters, but with Djokovic having a Slam title and WTF title, more tournament titles, and ending every year ranked above Murray, their overall careers (which is what this thread is about) was clearly and indisputably always in Djokovic's favor. It was never at any point close as far as their overall careers up to a given point.

    This thread would have been a joke whenever it were started.

    Djokovic ended every year since either became relevant ranked above Murray, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010. Djokovic had better slam results even before 2011, the ATP World Championship, more Masters titles and finals, and more tournament titles. How could this ever be even discussed.

    I think it was accidentally bumped judging by the previous post.

    Actually Murray had 6 Masters titles to Djokovic's 5 at the start of the 2011 season. It was his one (brief) area of superiority in results. Although Djokovic was always ahead in every other respect, I always felt the gap was quite narrow prior to 2011.

    I actually didnt know Murray had briefly passed Djokovic in Masters titles. Thanks for pointing that out. That is impressive considering Djokovic became a real top player about 18 months sooner than Murray, and Murray still managed to pass him in that stat when Djokovic was always a formidable Masters performer. Still Djokovic with his Slam title, ATP World Championship title, consistently better slam results, and consistently higher ranking, always had the edge. Even before he became Djokovic01.

    Murray actually won his 1st ATP title ( 2006 San Jose) 5 months sooner than Djokovic won his (2006 Amersfoort). Both entered the top 10 for the first time within a few weeks of each other in the spring of 2007. Djokovic leapt ahead at that point and made great strides from 2007-9 capturing his first Slam, WTF and 5 Masters titles. Murray kind of plodded on behind reaching and losing 2 Slam finals and winning 4 Masters titles by the end of 2009. By 2010, it seemed he was rapidly closing the gap. Both made 1 Slam final and 1 Slam semi that year though Djokovic did slightly better in the others with 2 quarter-final showings. But, for the first time since 2007, he made no Masters finals at all that year while Murray won 2 more which is why he was one ahead of him by the end of 2010. At the start of 2011, it seemed Murray was soon about to close the gap. But, of course, we all know what happened with Djokovic in 2011!


    Agreed.

    When I was a little filly and the sun was going down
    The darkness and the shadows, they would always make me frown
    I'd hide under my pillow from what I thought I saw
    But Granny Pie said that wasn't the way to deal with fears at all
    She said, 'Pinkie, you gotta stand up tall, learn to face your fears
    You'll see that they can't hurt you
    Just laugh and make them disappear...'
    Ha, ha, ha!
    So, giggle at the ghostly
    Guffaw at the grossly
    Crack up at the creepy
    Whoop it up with the weepy
    Chortle at the kooky
    Snortle at the spooky
    And tell that big dumb scary face to take a hike and leave you alone and if he thinks he can scare you then he's got another thing coming and the very idea of such a thing just makes you wanna... HAHAHAHA...heh...
    LAAAAAAAUUUGH!
