    You idiots have lebeled him the sure bet for Wimbly, then the USO, and then the Australian.

    Could you possibly have the audacity to say he'll win the French?

    Murray seems more of a favourite for the HC slams!

    for some reason I see Andy winning RG, his game fits in an interesting way for clay, he is like less agressive version of Rafa, let's see.

    He will always be favorite for Wimbledon because that's his home turf and Murray mania never stops during that time of the year

    In what way is his game like Nadal's, other than the great defense? Very bad comparison.

    I think Murray will be the fave to win the USO. It is his best surface, fast HC.

    Well he did make two slam finals on HCs, so he is at least one of the favorites. That said, putting him as a favorite above Fed is kinda funny considering Fed's experience, form and fitness and Murray's 0 slams won.

    Delpo, Federer, Djokovic, Cilic are favorites over him imo. AO is his most enjoyable surface. The USO would be a tad more faster for him if he meets the big hitters..

    I think Murrays the clear favorite at the Leprecon Open

    Murray's a heavy favorite over the Keebler Elves....:)

    I say dont make him favourite for anything let him be the under dog and he might actually win!

    I say he has a good chance in any slam as he is a great player!

    He's the favourite to knock Nadal out of a slam, should they be drawn to meet, only to bow down to Federer in the final.

    Has happened twice, so far. We'll see.

    Why are the people who called him for those respective tournaments idiots? Can you not handle him getting more spotlight than the injury prone Nadal?

    Its not as if he hasn't been progressing, every year he betters his progress in each Grandslam, the only one hes gone backwards in has beent he US Open, getting to the Final and then going out in the 4th round the following year.

    Why can't tennis fans in general just accept Federer is a genius and when on form is unplayable, today he was on form and therefore Murray had no chance.

    You don't really have much reason to refer to anyone that called Murray for the Australian Open this year as "idiotic" as its not as if they were that much wide of the mark.

    Murray is good on all surfaces except clay. He gets under people's skin. I think Tomic tried to emulate that "pro pushing" style and was actually very successful as he took Cilic to 5 sets.

    Murray has been in more HC slam finals than Nadal and Del Potro, and he's made the same amount as Djokovic.

    The only difference is that Murray hasn't broken through and won one yet, but failing him to label him a favorite seems pretty ridiculous.
