Same as the other 2 threads, just with Murray :p
I like your change of the order in the question. The other question "In what categories can Novak finish ahead of Murray", as went "the other 2 threads", would probably get more blank looks than replies.

# of doubles tournament with a brother.
# of Australian open dinner plates
# of TTW posters claiming he's a pusher
# of dogs, but I'm not sure
# of Bagels received
# of people in the crowd that support him in Madrid
# of weeks lived
I think they're tied in the # of dogs category, but I'm not sure.

Didn't really look like it. There was a very large contingent of Djokovic fans in the final
They wer Serbian though, i did note, with some annoyance that after the match the non serbians looked sour faced, werent clapping and alot simply left. that how it looked on TV, be interesting to hear from anyone who was there

Murray can be compared with Novak only in a funny way.Novak has won 11 grand slams while murray has won 11 masters 1000 titles.If Novak finishes with 17 grand slams,then murray will be ahead of Novak by winning 18 masters. Murray is not a player to be compared with Novak, Federer or Nadal.

He'll need to win a lot more than that given Novak already has 26! ;)

It's funny to think that, by the end of the 2010 season and after 5 years on tour, Murray had 6 Masters titles to Djokovic's 5. What a helluva difference another 5 years makes!!!

1. More Olympic gold medals (currently 1-0)

2. More Cincinnati titles (currently 2-0)

3. More grasscourt titles (currently 6-3)

4. Better grasscourt H2H (currently 2-0)

5. More wins against Ivo Karlovic: 6-0 vs 1-2


I think that's about it. Category number #1 may not survive the year! ;)

I just posted it for a fun. That means while djokovic could win a grand slam, murray could only win a masters. Then, how can we compare them?

5 years from now when Murrays career achievements far outweigh Djokovic's and he leads him by a mile in the H2H we will look back at this time and marvel at the fact that Djokovic was once so far ahead of Murray.
 
1. More Olympic gold medals (currently 1-0)

2. More Cincinnati titles (currently 2-0)

3. Grasscourt titles (currently 5-3)

4. Grasscourt H2H (currently 2-0)

5. More wins against Ivo Karlovic: 6-0 vs 1-2

Who would have thought back then Djokovic would probably be surpassing Nadal. At that point Djokovic had 1 major and Nadal had 9. People at that point thought Nadal would overtake Federer as Open Era GOAT, and now he is going to be 3rd best in his own era. Atleast he will be the clay GOAT for the next 1000 years or so, so that is some comfort (probably long after Federer and Djokovic are no longer possibly GOAT of anything and have lost any records, Nadal's ridiculous clay records will stay remain).

Novak is blowing away Andy in sponsorship. I think made the top 15 paid athletes in the world, passing nadal.

Djokovic is 1-3 against karlovic. They haven't 't met much after 2010. And Djokovic usually skipped grass court tournaments like Halle and Aegon. He would usually go for vacation in that period. He went for a vacation after FO, 2014 which was more more crucial and a turning point in his career. So, he continues it every year. He won't play more grass tournaments and Murray will always ahead in grass titles count.

Hmm it's pretty neck and neck atm. Murray is an ATG but Djokovic still has some work to do before he gets there.

The ATP H2H states they have played each other 3 times, the last time at 2015 Dubai. Karlovic has won their last 2 encounters.

Djokovic usually plays at the Boodles or at Hurlingham, both grass exhibition tournaments, to get some practice in the week before Wimbledon but you are right, he has not played any ATP grasscourt events since 2010 Queens.
 
Sorry.Novak is still 1-3 against karlovic.It will change if they meet frequently.Karlovic shouldn't retire before that. No comments. Sometimes even ATP website gives us wrong info.
