I think the OP is a Djokovic fan and his prime motivation was to embarrass Rafa over the 2019 AO Final that's why I have concentrated on Djokovic.

I don’t think so. There isn’t really any hate between Djokodal fans on this forum, it’s one-sided from the frednatics.

Nadal - Anderson US17 was not exactly a nail biter :)

Federer - Goffin US19: 2 - 2 - 0
Umm Anderson and Goffin are not all-time greats. Not even close.

This thread is about all-time greats who got destroyed in slam matches, not all-time greats destroying above average players.

Wimbledon 2013 was not a beatdown (i.e. getting “shredded”) which is the topic of this thread. It doesn’t upset me, it’s just clearly an attempt to prop up Muzz undeservedly. I would accept 2008 USO, but even that isn’t good enough for your agenda it seems.
You would accept 2008 USO even though that was a 4 setter over a straight setter? The only reason you would accept that is because it was against Nadal and not your boy Djokovic. So let's cut the hypocritical cant shall we? A straight setter in a Slam final against an ATG player from a non-ATG player is notable by any unbiased and objective tennis observer, something you are quite clearly not.

I thought USO 2008 sas a straight-sets affair. No beatdown if it’s 4 sets. Then my oroginal question remains: has Muzz ever beat down an ATG at a slam? Seems like not.

I've already answered your question several times. A straight setter in a Slam final against an ATG player from a player who is not an ATG player is a beatdown. No ifs or buts. The only other player to inflict a straight sets beatdown against Djokovic in a Slam final was Federer (2007 USO) but he is a fellow ATG and Djokovic was playing in his maiden Slam final. If you can't accept this then there is no further purpose to our discussion.

Plus, as I also already told you, there is also the straight sets beatdown he inflicted on Nadal in the quarter-final of 2010 AO.

So in other words you want to move the goalposts and change the language to suit your narrative? Seems like brits are particularly prone to this. A beatdown implies an easy and one-sided match, which neither of those matches were. Only beatdowns I think of in relation to Muzz were the ones he suffered at USO 2008 and those AO finals...

No, you are just a typical example of a Murray-hater who comes steaming into any thread whenever anyone dares to suggest that Murray has accomplished something to try and persuade us otherwise. You made absolutely no mention of the OP's example of Safin beating Sampras at 2000 USO which was of a similar order because either that did not interest you or because you like Safin. You are quite simply biased and irrational when it comes to the subject of Murray and I don't propose to argue this with you any further. I waste too much time already trying to rationalise with your types. It's futile. So we're done. Cheerio!
