He needs to prove to you that he is capable of winning what 99% of the population consider to be the real deal tournaments.

I make it 30 attempts so far, with a 10% success rate of achieving a final.
At best I reckon he has another 30 to 40 attempts.
So, maybe, 3 more finals?
To be fair 6 finals would be a good record for a player. I'd struggle to live with myself if I didn't win a single one though.

Go Murray!


99% of the population like Alu mountain bikes.

Vive la change!

By the way, Nadal WAS fit. Hence that remark by the reporter.

aha! but I hate alu frames!

Ok, im putting on my diversity head...

Some alu frames are cool.

I want Murray to win a slam.

I still don't like him.




you don't think it's possible that the other 99% could be right, do you?

My point is that 99% of the population know Jack Shit.

What is magical for me is that we are even having this debate about a British player who has spent the last four years in the top four, peaking at 2.

I refer to my previous comment, quality and depth of the field is lacking IMO.

Im going to sleep on it, perhaps I can convince myself that he is worthy of adulation. A little more personality would go a long way in my book. Perhaps (probably certainly) not right to judge him on this, but call me old fashioned, i'm a sucker for someone who is actually ...nice?

Plus, i'm not falling for the nationality rational these days.


Good debate though HF. I can see why you like him so, honestly. I'm probably just far too judgemental.

In spite of my Murray-related cynicism, better a win for AM than Nadal any day, if only for the latter's connections* with a certain character named Fuentes (which nicely makes it relevant to a cycling forum!).
