People only call him "complete" because of his strong backhand that he does not have to run around, unlike Federer or Nadal.

Murray in that sense is a much more complete player. He can do almost everything Federer does, except he does not have Federer's wrist (squash shots, tweeners and precise backhand smashes, all of that is rare enough not to be critical for success).
I agreee completely with everything you said.

Murray is the closest current player whose variety is on par with fed and his ground game can hang witn djoker.

Id even rate murray slightly better on a fast hc.

That said, djoker is by far the stronger player mentally compared to murray.
