Then add just a few from before that (let's say Mac, Connors, Borg, Vilas and Nastase) and you don't even have to leave the open era to find 20 players better than Murray.
Roddick, Rafter, Kafelnikov are all highly questionable.
Roddick- Only edge is his year end #1. Otherwise Murray's career trumps Roddick in everyway now.
Rafter- 2 slams but something like only 11 singles titles. Not much longevity as a top player, not much in the way of achievements outside his U.S Open titels and Wimbledon finals.
Kafelnikov- 2 slams but couldnt even win a single Masters vs the 8 Murray has won, many less slam finals and semis than Murray, and Murray also has Olympic Gold.
