Andy Murray not at same elite level as Novak, Roger, Rafael
The western media insist on saying Andy Murray is at the top of men's tennis but I disagree. The American and British press desperately want Murray to be a part of this group but he's not. I am talking about Murray's slam results and so far the guy's only won one he isn't as good as Federer, Nadal, and Djokovic yet the western press keep on pushing this lie that he is.
But Murray's grand slam final losses are starting to pile up and that's the statistic that counts the most he just keeps on losing them.
Murray loses another grand slam final against one of the three best players of his generation Novak Djokovic. Murray is now 1-5 in grand slam finals that's terrible.
The western press want to squeeze Murray into this top group but only having one slam title and not reach number one in the world proves he's still unworthy.
Federer has 17 slams, Nadal has 11, and Djokovic has 6 slam titles, it isn't fair to these guys to be compared to Andy Murray he's a step below them. Those guys have six slams or more they are in a different universe than Andy Murray but the western media is going to continue pushing this lie Murray's a part of this group when he's not. And I don't care how many Masters titles Murray has won I am talking about slams and so far he's a one slam wonder.
Murray is certainly good but to only have one grand slam singles title proves he's not worthy to be mentioned with Federer, Nadal, Djokovic.
This year, Andy Murray needs to prove or within the next few years he needs to prove he can become a multiple slam champion.
At this moment Murray is definitely a step above players like David Ferrer, Tsonga, Berdych, Del Potro but not by much.
I believe Djokovic, Federer, and Nadal are above Murray and they are the real gold standard of men's tennis. Murray hasn't reached the number one ranking either.
