Over-rated by whom - you? I love it when people on this forum pull assertions out of their @rse and present it as fact. It was Nadal - on clay - only 3 other current players have done so - and 2 of them are Nole and Roger.

Murray hasn't won a clay title or even made a final - that is true; but I'm sure if he entered Estoril or Cassablanca regularly, then that would change.

The fact is that Murray's record where it matters on clay i.e. at RG, is relatively decent. For example, his record matches Ferrer and is much better than 'King of the SA Swing' Nico Almagro.
