Think about it.

I am thinking why didn't you add RG to the title also, it is still the same guys.

Yes, you are right. Only the Big 5 minus Murray has won RG since 2005.I am thinking why didn't you add RG to the title also, it is still the same guys.

I’m confused about Big 5 minus Murray. You mean the big 3 plus Stan?

Why is Rafa first and Fed last? I dont like this picture.

No, top 10 over the past decade but only including Rafa, Fed, Djoker, and Stan.I’m confused about Big 5 minus Murray. You mean the big 3 plus Stan?

Because novak is selfish ***cries in Scottish***

No, I mean the Big 5 minus Murray. If the Big 5 is composed of Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, Murray and Wawinka, exclude Murray from the group.I’m confused about Big 5 minus Murray. You mean the big 3 plus Stan?

Fedalovka (actually sounds like some russian vodka)

FO: Big 5 minus Murray since 2005

WI: Big 5 minus Stan since 2003

USO: Big 5 since 2004 with the exception of a zoning Cilic.

YE#1: Big 5 minus Stan since 2004

1+ weeks ranked #1: Big 5 minus Stan since 2/2/2004

But at the end of the day, it's MuryGOAT.

You mean that tournament where Murray's made 5 finals and none of them were against an injured opponent?

To be fair, Nadal wasn't injured. He just had losingitus which is a temporary illness and is easily cured with a healthy dose of fooling your opponent into letting the foot off the gas. Nadal is a chronic sufferer of the condition.

It is exactly the same. No one has won RG the since 2005 outside the Big 5 minus Murray and no one has won the AO since 2006 outside the Big 5 minus Murray.It's not the same as Wimbledon where all of the original "Big 4" have at least 2 titles and haven't let anyone else even sniff a Wimbledon title. The closest anyone has come since 2006 was Roddick in 2009.

By the way, it is either Big 3 or Big 5. Murray is closer to Wawrinka than he is to the Big 3, so nothing justifies creating a group including Murray but excluding Wawrinka.

Nice pickup. That loss hurt us Federer fans badly.

On the contrary, only if you think it is all about the Slams. I (and others) think other aspects need to be taken into account. Unlike Wawrinka, Murray has been ranked world #1 (the only active player to be so other than the Big 3) and has won many more titles (46 > 16) including big ones (20 > 4) than has Wawrinka. In these respects he is much closer to the Big 3 than he is to Wawrinka and that amply justifies regarding him as a member of an exclusive group with the Big 3. Wawrinka can certainly be included as a member of a Big 5 but none of these groups are mutually exclusive.

You sure? Murray is closer to Wawrinka than the Big 3 in 5 categories (Slams, overall titles, weeks as #1, Year End #1, Masters 1000), while he is only closer to the Big 3 in 2 categories (Olympics, ATP finals).On the contrary, only if you think it is all about the Slams.I (and others) think other aspects need to be taken into account.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure when taking other career achievements into account other than just the Slams. Here is how I group them:

1. Big 3: set of all active players with double digit Slams (Federer, Nadal, Djokovic).

2. Big 4: set of all active players with multiple Slams, multiple other big titles and the #1 ranking (Big 3 plus Murray).

3. Big 5: set of all active players with multiple Slams (Big 4 plus Wawrinka).

4. Big 7: set of all active players with Slam titles (Big 5 plus Del Potro and Cilic).

None of these are mutually exclusive. You can make even bigger groupings with even wider criteria but the returns become ever more diminishing.
