Murray is below Federer, Nadal, and Djokovic there is no disputing this fact. The results in the grand slam finals prove this he's lost three grand slam finals to Federer, and two to Novak.
Well, duh, he's not as good as Federer, Nadal, and Djokovic. Very, very few are. But Murray is kind of unlucky to face such consistent elite opposition. Nadal, Djokovic, and especially Federer have all had far weaker opponents in slam finals than Murray has had to face. If Murray had played Berdych or Tsonga or Baghdatis in one or more of his slam finals, he'd no doubt have a better record than 1-5.
