I know he won majors when Nadal and Fed were around, but they are both past their primes now and for the next 10 majors there will be no real rival for him.
Murray has only recently has made a move and even now its obvious he cant keep up with him physically.
If he swipes the majors this year it's because of a perfect timing when a weak era has emerged.
I wouldn't base Murray's chances on this last match, if that's what you're doing. Roger at his best would have a hard time beating Novak right now. In my opinion the Novak that showed up against Stan would own the h2h against a prime Federer. But I do agree this is a weak era, but then it was even weaker years ago when Roger was gathering up slams before the Spanish Winter.
