If you're talking about peaks and not results this guy thinks differently:

"You can't go wrong with Murray. He's the best there is. He's a better player than Nadal and the other top guys."

"Better than Nadal? Better than Federer? Better than Djokovic?" I replied, incredulous.

"Sure, sure. He's more explosive. He has a better back-hand. He has a better serve."

No disrespect to Murray, but I think most people would say that guy has no clue what he's talking about. Even on this court I would give the edge to Roger if he played his A game for most of the match, and overall on all courts, it's even more pronounced IMHO. Problem is, Fed doesn't get there that often for that long these days.
