10% chance to beat Nadal at the AO? Is this the same Nadal with a 2-2 H2h v Murray in hardcourt slams? The same Nadal that Murray leads 5-4 on hards since 2008 - that Nadal?
I'm loving how you concede that Murray might 'sneak' the USO. Others would win it of course, but Murray would sneak it - despite beign the defending champion.
Why are you getting all bent out of shape? The fact is when it comes to slams Murray is minor league compared to the other elite players, Nadal, Federer and Djokovic. You are correct that Murray on HC may defeat Nadal in a future slam (I think he will), he may be able to beat Federer in a future slam now that he has defeated him at the Olympics and he may defeat Novak in more future slams, but until he actually proves himself capable of having the "mind" to be a multiple slam winner, the other players will be favored.
