Murray doesn't get credit because his only slam win was in a favorable draw, in favorable conditions, and the opponent he was facing played awful tennis and gave up a two set lead. And still, Murray almost blew it, and had Djokovic not gassed (there was no outgunning; Djokovic was just tired) that match likely is another slam victory for Djokovic. He cannot possibly continue to play the way he does, otherwise he will just gas out in the end. If Murray doesn't become a more aggressive player, when he has to face two elite level opponents, he will lose out in the end because he simply does not have the stamina to beat back to back elite opponents. We've seen this many times in Murray's career where he has had to expend far too much energy to beat one opponent. Djokovic used to be the same way; he expended way too much energy beating one top guy only to lose to another elite player in the end.
How about we dissect the draws and conditions of Pete Sampras and Roger Federer's slam wins and see if we shouldn't give credit to any or all of their slam wins?

You said Murray will never win a slam with that game of his - you were wrong. You're still spinning the same, tired pysh - and you'll be wrong again - because you generally are.
There are 10 types of people in this world. Those who understand binary - and those who don't.
