Which do you value more, a US Open meeting between Nadal and Murray, or a meeting one month later at Tokyo?
Exactly my point, Murray beat Nadal at the 2008 US Open. That is why Nadal beating Murray at the 2011 US Open wasn't a good sign for Murray. He's taken a step back vs Nadal.
And before you point to Murray's 2012 US Open title, just remember that Djokovic played rather horrid in the final
Djoker's level of play had nothing ot do with murray's USO win - that was solely down to the wind.
I'm not quite sure why you are fixating about what happened in 2011 - a lot of water has flowed under the bridge since then. The fact is that since Murray entered the upper echelons of the game in the 2nd half of 2008, he is 2-1 versus Rafa in hardcourt slams and 5-4 overall on hardcourt.
If you want to conclude from this data that Rafa cannot lose to Murray at the AO13 then feel free to do so.
