I think you've contradicted yourself by saying that the cold hard facts is the most important way of judging player's careers. Murray won USO fair and square so if other players couldn't adjust to the conditions then tough.
It doesn't matter how much you argue that it was a 'fluke' slam. He's got one in the bag and will most likely add more in the coming years.
