    Wozniacki will most likely win slams. Murray has no opening.

    I guess facts become 'flowery' when they don't support your view - yes?

    They are all facts of course; unlike the majority of your post which is essentially pompous conjecture centred on the premise that because you say something, it must be true.

    Murray might be the first guy to finish his career slamless despite all the positive indicators., that is clearly a strong possibility given that he hasn't won one thus far - I don't think I've ever stated on these pages that Murray will definitely win a slam. But please, spare us the lazy, armchair, absolutist cod psychology @rsegravy.

    Tennis is a sport. In sport, things can and do change. Most of us get this and don't spout absolutist bollox because of it.

    ^ Yeah but I don't think Murray is even close to Rios level of talent.

    And you are absolutely entitled to your opinion that Murray is "not even close" to Rios' "talent" - there is no point in anyone arguing with you about it - because only you know what you mean by "talent".

    What did "rogi" do? Copy the textbook. What did Nadal do? Write a new textbook. Federer is talented, but not as talented as Nadal.

    Slams are BO5 for men, BO3 for women. On that basis alone, I'd choose Woz.

    Thank You:)

    You can at least take comfort in knowing that Murray the dear boy can beat up on all the French players......owns the whole bunch (Richie, Jo, Lamonf and Simon). its at least something.

    If it was that easy, Wozniacki would have claimed a major by now...but she has failed to do so after long years of experience, rising to get the #1 ranking, etc. What's the difference between Wozniacki this year and Wozniacki over the past two? Nothing. Her game is exactly the same, her support system is the same (daddy), and that combination has not transformed her game into one capable of winning a major.

    At this point, the only way she wins a major is to have THE most lucky, upset-ridden draw in sports history, then face a player in the final who chokes and/or was half-there, and/or injured, and/or sick.

    Murray is no favorite, but at least I recognize that he has the ability to improve and a has a few physical gifts which the right coach can train him to use. Wozniacki comes at her opponents the same way over and over again at the majors, and believes there's nothing wrong with it...meanwhile, Azarenka and older players have won majors while Wozniacki was at the zenith of her peak years as a player.

    I voted Wozniacki because the ATP is much more stable, it's hard for someone outside of the top 3 to win a slam. It's totally different in the WTA, everyone has a shot.

    True.

    But 67% of people fluked this poll.

    Murray is still the male Wozniacki.
