he could crush it most of the time but he doesnt...
Because he usually misses a lot of backhand returns. Plus, he also would play more into Murray's strength. Murray likes the quick rallies. He's faster than Roger, and a higher ball like a topspin backhand would give Murray more of an edge, while with his slice, Roger forced Murray to either slice back, or play the ball a bit higher. In both ways, Roger would have a good chance to attack the second ball.
