    With his current game (of pushing and retrieving) does anyone root for murray to win a slam?

    If yes, say why, and I want a better reason than "cuz i'm british" u nationalist/racist.

    I say no, this boring/lame style should not be rewarded with a trophy.

    Hell no. I don't want him to win a slam. It would just take his focus off Modern Warfare 2 and we all know that he can't afford to get any more rusty at that game.

    Of course, but he has to earn it !

    Losing repeatedly in a final does not make one deserving of winning.

    I'd love it just because it would stick it to this section. Then 20 threads would pop up about "Murray future GOAT", and then he'd go back to sucking.

    People say Roddick's game is way too passive to win another Slam, so I have no idea how they would expect Murray to win one

    Do I want Murray to win a Slam? I don't root for him, but I don't hate the guy either. If he earns it, he earns it. May the best man win.

    While Federer's still playing, I won't root for anyone else in the Slams, and wouldn't mind a bit if he won them all. But if Murray made it to a slam final against another opponent I'd be happy for him to win. If his game's good enough to win, it's good enough to win, and that's fine by me. To be honest he's really grown on me in the past few months, and if he can play well enough to win one then I would say it's well deserved.

    Oh, and his game didn't bother me at the AO, except for part of the Cilic match (and in the final I was more focused on Federer's game).

    He's probably one of the only players I really root against because I don't like him at all, so no I don't, but it'll probably happen eventually, he does got talent, even if he has a bad personality

    I want him to win a slam, just to see the carnage and chaos it would create on here. If he earns one, he earns one. Isn't changing my life one way or another in any large way. But the comedic value of the reactions on here would be worth it for a day or two.

    If you want to see chaos and carnage on the forums then you should be hoping for Ljubo to win a slam (not that it will happen.) The board won't be quite for months if Ljubo, ever gets around to winning a major.

    When Federer retires.
    And Nadal.
    And Cilic.
    And Davydenko.

    Then he can win before any other top tenner!

    I wouldn't mind it, if he would win the French beating Nadal in straight sets, that would make for great fun on the forum.

    I don't really want him to win Wimbledon or Usopen. He would get too big a head if he ever won one of those two.

    I guess I wouldn't mind if he won an AO, due to Djokovic retirement in final from hang nail on left pinky finger.

    What does that have to do with Murray? stay on topic or start another thread if you want to talk about Nadal and Soderling.

    Agreed,I wouldn't mind that either, Murray wins slam over Soderling, after Soderling has beaten Nadal in quarterfinals.

    I'd be happy for him to win one because it would create more interest at the top of the game.
    Having said that, his game is like Roddick's - it lacks aggression and an offensive quality, so rewarding an essentially passive game is the downside.

    Sure. He's a talent, seems like a decent person. I wouldn't mind him winning one at all.

    Absolutely, he was very unfortunate to not win a slam in the last 2 years.

    But I want him to win his first slam with a more aggressive and positive approach.

    I'd rather Tsonga win a slam - much more interesting player and personality.

    Every dog should have his day of basking in the sun.

    he is very talented and only his personality limits his success. he is now fit but not coached well because he thinks he knows best.

    Why not? Are boring games not legitimate?

    If beautiful games were the ones to win slams, Federer would have had every slam for the past 8 years or so, not "just" 16. Murray is a good tactican, and a talented player. He's got a lot of variety and he can change his gameplan according to his opponent. He was a part of many great matches, and while you may not like him, you can appreciate his great talent.

    I'm rooting for Murray.

    Murry is one of the most talented youngsters so why would anyone not want to see him win a slam? Of course I would love to see that and it will happen very soon.

    I do want him to win a slam but not anytime soon. Maybe in like 3 or 4 years, I just don't think he deserves one at the moment.

    Yes but I would like him to tell off the British media first so bad they will be rooting against him. Then he can go and win a slam and the rest will be dramatic history.............

    Maybe he would have a chance if he meets nadal in the final of a HC slam....

    I still wouldn't want him to win one....If he does...I will simply believe that slam didn't take place that year!

    You should add an option that says "Yes but not if it takes away one from Nadal/Fed"

    I want Murray to try to win a slam.....and then get destroyed. Broken. Flattened. Pummeled.

    I want him to get to the French Open finals. Yes, French Open finals.....only to be destroyed by Federer or Nadal. If, by some miracle, he gets to the finals of another slam, I want him to be taught a lesson.

    Then, at Wimbledon, in the finals, Federer thrashes him in straight sets. I want his spirit to be shattered. He is already in a dark place. I want him to be knee deep in the abyss where there is nothing but darkness.

    I want him to be in that place for a long, long time. I then want Wayne Ferriera to make a come back and dismantle Murray in the finals of the US Open. His loss to Wayne will put him in cardiac arrest.

    Then Murray starts to win ! That's right ! He starts winning, left, right and center in all the Master series events. He gets his spirit back to what it once was. He is the Champion of the People.

    He is stronger than ever.

    THIS is the time King Jester will win a slam. At next years Australian open. He will be ready. Except.....he faces Federer... again.

    He is ****ed. Spirit destroyed. I want his spirit to be rebuilt and destroyed. Again. And again. And again. I want him to say to the media that he no longer wants to play because he is a piece of ****.

    I want his final performance in a slam final to be so lob sided it's sad. I want his final moments on the court to be "I am a piece of **** player with a big ****ing mouth'.....'MONNNNN.....

    I want his final 'point' in a slam final to be a double fault on the opposite side of the court where he makes his signature scream 'MMOOOOOONNNNNNNNNN' with his wide open mouth.

    I want that to be his legacy. That moment. Not any other moment, but THAT one. Judy then screams 'MOONNN'....with Andy.

    I want the crowd to boo him off the stage. I want Judy to slap Murray as he is walking off the court and to tell him that she wished he was never born.

    I want his father to tell him that he stinks as a player because of that horrendous mark on his leg, call it a birthmark or a birthdefect.

    He also smells bad.

    The End.

    PS I hope you do well Murray. You piece of ****.

    Regards,

    Disagree. His best chance is for JMDP to land in Roger's half and for him to be in Rafa's - at the USO.

    Yes but it's not like there aren't any other players that can beat him on any given day. Cilic, Verdasco, Roddick, heck, any big hitter or a guy that takes alot of risk could beat Murray. At this point, I'd give an unfit Nalbandian a decent shot at taking out Murray.

    Grist for the mill. It's boring kid - have you nothing original and vaguely funny? Go and speak to grandmaster Blink. He'll show you what proper Murray trolling looks like.
