    That is a no brainer. Henman sure as heck wouldnt beat a prime Federer 6 times even if they played 30 times, let alone only playing 8 times so far.

    Henman never 'sucked', he was just inconsistent.

    Timmy is a such a nice honest humble guy something Murray can never reach.

    I didnt say he sucked. I just sad he wouldnt have ever done some of the things Murray at 21 already has. I also disagree Henman was inconsistent. He was consistently just good, never better than good, maybe on grass upgraded to very good but never great.

    Murray only beat a prime Federer once. That was in 2006.

    Sorry but as long as Federer is still winning slams and reaching every slam final he is still prime Federer. He is probably going to end this year as a multiple slam champion and year end #1 again.

    He was a nice guy, however not all good.

    He was disqualified at wimbledon 1995 for hitting a tennis ball out of anger which hit a ball girl.

    You can argue murray may not have the sugarcoat smile, but murray is humble in defeat. :)

    When have you ever seen Murray not be humble? He is pretty much the most humble top player out there. He never ever makes excuses after a defeat, nor does he make dubious retirements, or call the trainer, etc. The guy is an absolute pro.

    Can you imagine one of the other top 4 ever saying "He played too well for me" or "I'm not good enough to go out and blast other players off the court."?

    I can scarcely imagine another top player who would be humble enough to say things like that.

    HAHAHA, your a joke!

    Murray is simply better than Federer, its hard to swallow for Fed fans i guess.

    First,I don't know either of them personally,this is just MY opinion from what I see as a fan.
    Secondly,I didn't say that Murray is an a$$hole,but I said he won't be AS nice AS timmy was.That's all.

    I can see what you mean, from first impressions he isn't most likeable guy and people in UK always complain that he doesn't smile.

    Which is the dumbest argument I've ever seen. How often do you see Nadal smile on court?

    well,everyone can judge from their own criteria,as long as they don't insult others.I like athletes who smile on court because they seem more nice and to be enjoying themselves.That may seem shallow to you,but what to do.To each their own.

    I didn't say Murray was a bad character though.

    I don't like much Nadal,and one of the reasons is that..we are here to fight expression,which other admire.
    I admire Federer,and he has won me by his game.And he smiles sometimes too!
    But as I said to each their own.

    Wow thats a newsflash, NOT! Murray is a rising star who will win 4 slams or more in his career. Djokovic was an early flash in the pan who will be lucky to win another 1 at some point to reach 2 when he retires.
