Murray could've had a 3-Slam season in 2016, but one man stopped it



I guess he would have been if he was a man. ;)

Djokovic could've overtaken Federer and joined Sampras with the most year end 1#s in 2016 but one man stopped it.

He was a male player too. :cool:
Let me guess,
Stan the man or Sir Andrew

I see that the Murray HATERS are running scared as they slowly come to terms with the fact that Murray 2.0 is the real deal.

It's now finally dawning on these HATERS that any post-2017 achievement from one of their idols now has a huge asterisk beside it.

I'll admit, I didn't see that coming at the start of 2016. Came outta nowhere after RG.
Those first two Slam Finals were kind of beat downs so never thought of those in the what might have been since Djoko so, so dominant starting 2016. If Murray hadn't gotten Zverev 5-setititis at 2016 RG maybe he has a chance in the final. Remember him playing well and then just falling off a cliff those last two sets. Nole's elbow was around at that point so a real coulda, shoulda in hindsight 2016 RG for Murray. Also scheduling probably should have been lighter before US Open that year. Should have called in sick to Cincy.;)

Nishikori did a bit of damage to Murray and their early March 5 set Davis Cup should not be forgotten.

Tend to agree that the 2016 RG final was another lost opportunity for Murray. Just came off a win over Djokovic in the Rome final and a fine win over the defending champ in the semis and started off in similar vein in the 1st set and then inexplicably went AWOL. Hugely disappointing.

Mention should also be made of their 5 set quarter-final clash at the US Open. Murray dominating at the start and then going AWOL again after the infamous 'boom' incident. TWO Slam opportunities that went begging that year!

Still, none of this affected him taking Djokovic's #1 title from him in the concluding match of the season.

I dont know who this Andrew Murray is... I've only heard of this Andrew Mainad bloke, plays good defence, which some say is the bestest offence

Murray is a choker in slam finals..
Had the upper hand & incredible momentum so many times & blew it.

That might have been Raonic's best tournament, his win over Wawrinka was great.
2016 Raonic was something else. If that version of Raonic played in today’s game he’d be a worthy opponent to the big 3 + Medvedev. If it wasn’t for Murray he would’ve had a slam, slam final, possible WTF title, and possibly 2 masters titles. Shame about the injuries, man bossed around Fed and Wawa at their best slams. It’s sad we don’t have that version of Raonic anymore.
