Well, he beefed up his game nicely to beat Fed in the semis and he wasn't that far off against Djokovic in today's final. He dominated the first 2 sets of that match. His level fell off after the 2nd set, no doubt about that. Not sure why but there may have been a finess issue with his foot.
He is a lot closer than you are willing to give him credit for?
How did Murray dominate the first 2 sets of the match against Djokovic? Murray was fighting for his life in that first set, just trying to hold serve. Djokovic was the one applying the pressure.
There's a reason why Slams are best of 5. That's when your fitness and perserverance is tested. Murray better get his feet fixed up.
