Is Thiem suffering from depression?

Murray became #1 when Federer, Nadal and Djokvic were in a slump at the same time
If at least one of them wouldn't be in slump, Murray would remain an eternal #2
What's this got to do with anything? :rolleyes:

In any case, Murray beat at least 1 of them for the #1 ranking in a #1 title match so nice try but no cigar.

I wish Zverev won that US Open, because Thiem didn't need it.....Thiem already proven himself by making Roland Garros/AO Finals.....and Thiem seems to regret winning the US Open.

He's just declining. He's 27 - that's when most players decline. The Big 3 were the exception that everyone now thinks is the norm.
The exception? You’ve totally not been paying attention, many players have been having their career-high rankings in their 30s - Kevin Anderson, Roberto Bautista Agut, John Isner, and many more.

At the end of a movie from 1972 called "The Candidate", a character has been campaigning relentlessly for months, and after the election is over, he unexpectedly wins. His followers are celebrating, but instead of joining in, the character looks at his campaign manager in a forlorn, confused way and says "What do we do now? ... what do we do now?". Thiem can understand that scene very well indeed.

it's got to do with following statement you posted " Murray became world #1 at the age of 29. "

and yeah, he defeated them, when they were in a slump, losing left and right

Fact remains that he was 29 when he became world #1. He could still have failed to do so no matter how much of a 'slump' you think everybody else was in so how you think he got there is completely irrelevent.

Djokovic won the Australian and French Opens that year and had more then 9,000 ranking points ahead of Murray. That's some slump!

Well yes, and I never disputed that.
Even more, kudos to him for reaching #1, unlike the younger guys that failed in 2015, then failed again in 2017 and still continuously fail till nowadays.

P.S.
I just put the fact into some context ;-)
