On the tram to Manny Town Centre, feeling a bit bored so I just thought I'd start this thread.

Murray's resume is 2 titles, 1 RU, 2 semifinals with a 31-12 W-L record(72%).

Djokovic's record is 1 title, 5 RU, 1 semifinal with a 35 -12 W-L record(74%).

Discuss/disgust.
 
Let's anal-ize the wins and losses:

pre-08 irrelevant (1 qf iirc)

08 mury def djoe in F

09 fedr def mury in SF, def joe in F; closer match with mury

10 both lost in QF

11 mury def joe in F by ret.

12 fed def joe in F, mury lost to chardy

13 QF for both

14 mury lost QF to fred, djoe lost to boredo lol

15 fred def mury in SF, joe in F, closer match with mury

16 sillyc def mury in F, joe skipped

17 cannot be found

18 joe won beating fedmug in F, no mury

19 joe lost to peak meds in SF, no mury (ghost only)


During their masters primes, both did well in Cincy five times, four of them together and mury did better in all four, beating djo for the title twice and giving fred a closer match twice (no reason to believe he couldn't've beaten joe H2H again in cincy of all places). The other time, both lost their finals. So mury was clearly much better in cincy. Joe got close since winning the title but given what I've said he's not overtaking cincyray without a second title to equalise.

Djokovic plays ‘better’ tennis full stop.

If you have a complex formula which proves that 5 RU is better than 1 Win and 2x semifinals (a hypothesis with merit) and therefore proves that Djoko has more accomplishments, I’m all ears!

But Murray has one more title than Djoko. And titles are everything in this sport. That's why Murray is better Rome player than Fedr for example, despite Fed having much more RU than Murray. ;)

Murray's two Cinci win draws were pathetic; didn't even have to beat Fedal. Djoke had to face Fed 4 times, meanwhile.

4 runners up is worth about as much as a final, and the fact that Djoke has a superior record seals his superiority in this regard

I don’t think better is the right word. More successful yes. I’d take 2006 Fed at Rome over any version of Murray on clay.

Not in my opinion.
