The answer is pretty obvious if you ask me: 1000 points > 750 points; Legacy of great champion winners > Legacy of journeyman winners drawn from sparse fields; Once-in-a-lifetime surface requiring amazing footwork, timing and adaptability > Historic surface butchered by PC deceleration; Winner who defeated the very best on road to title > Winner who capitalized on his opponent's surface hardships and another opponent's extreme fatigue. It's a shame that the Olympics gets all the hype, as if it is the next biggest title after the Slams in 2012. In reality, it is well below the WTF in terms of prestige, and below all Masters (including Monte Carlo) in terms of importance. Let's also discuss this absurd idea that Murray has had a better year than Federer. Federer, battling age and injury, prevailed against the top young players to clinch his seventeenth major. Murray had his first major handed to him (blown his way) on a silver platter. Federer went out and won Wimbledon (and the #1 ranking). Meanwhile, Murray didn't win the US Open; he simply failed to lose it.
