1-5 in grand slam finals is terrible because it proves Murray has a block he just can't beat the elite players when it matters the most.
The only reason Murray is included is because the western media are desperate they want one their guys included when he doesn't deserve it. Murray needs to earn it and winning one slam isn't good enough to be a part of this elite group.
I don't pay too much attention to the press. I look at the level of play.
Murray is right there with the other three, Fed, Djokovic and Nadal would say the same thing.
