Not at the USO or AO. They are 1-1 at both these Slams:

USO: 2008, Murray in 4; 2011, Nadal in 4.
AO: 2007, Nadal in 5; 2010, Murray in 3.

Only at the FO and Wimbledon has Nadal had it a bit easier:

Wimbledon: 2008 & 2010, Nadal in 3; 2011, Nadal in 4.
FO: 2011, Nadal in 3.

All in all, Murray has taken 10 sets off Nadal in their 8 Slam meetings. Not all that bad a record.
