I'm not in any position to point fingers. Back in 2007, I wasn't too sure myself how far Murray would go. I always knew he had the talent but had my doubts about his mental strength and fitness to be able to go the distance. It wasn't until the following year when Murray won his first 2 Masters titles and made his first GS final, and began beating the Big 3 quite regularly, that I became convinced he had it in him to go the whole way.

Still, it's interesting how many people back then and even now persistently underestimate Murray as a player!
