Then it's even more likely that Murray wouldn't have a slam. Murray plays free-er in slam semis than in slam finals, when the occassion often gets to him (he's admited as much). That's why he's got such an awful record in slam finals. He's have a better chance of beating Nadal in a semi than a final, imho. If he faced Nadal in a final, Nadal's superior composure in finals and Murrary's tendency to choke in finals would probably spell doom for Murray. Djokovic would soften up Murray in the semi, and Nadal would likely kill him off.
