I remain same thinking as other same question have been asked for Federer, Nadal and Djokovic. How do I predict it?

And I still hate Murray's game! I almost threw my laptop when he was so passive in big point.  :mad1:

Agreed.
Impossible to predict.
Hopefully this isn't his only one.

He certainly possesses (<-that's alot of s's!) the skills to play more aggressively.  I wonder why he consistently falls back on passive play when the chips are down?  Is that how he's made it to the top?

Of course it's impossible to predict, but one can make an educated guess.

Murray is 25 yrs. old, let's assume he can play at this level for another 5 years..
The top contenders for the slams are Murray, Nadal, Djokovic, and Fed, but then there are the "dark horses" such as DelPo, Berdych, etc., who may not be top contenders for a title, but have the ability to derail the title ambitions of the top 4.

Will Murray ever go on a tear like Fed and Djokovic, and win 2 or maybe 3 majors in one season ?
Possible, but very unlikely...

So, best case scenario IMHO is one major every year for the next 5 years, maybe one year with 2, so 6-7 majors total.
Worst case scenario, he becomes a one slam wonder such as the other Andy.

Murray's had the best year out of the top 4,i think he will win around 8 slams by the time he is done.

At least 1.   :whistle:

And that's the only "fact" that we have! Lol.   Wonder how many people predicted Roddick would have before he retired! Lol

And wonder how many people predicted Nalbandian was going to win at least one grand slam before his last years in ATP  :(

Those who say one or Zero,i think Murray has a better game than potty & he might win more than one Slam ..-) Roddick won one Slam & those who get his serve back beat him :rofl_2: putting Murray in the same boat as Roddick only a fool would do that.Ah Dallas said it know wonder,it has to be right what she says on this board. :rofl_2:

I just quoted facts.  When Roddick won in 2003, many (and I mean many), said that was going to be the start of something big...that he would be the next Pete or Andre, etc.  But we know what happened.  Even when Del Po won in 2009....people said that was the start of many more to come.  But then he got injured.

So it seems like Murray MAY be on a roll and can wrap up many more grand slams...but since none of us know what the future is... the fact is - he has ONE right now. ;-()  It will be interesting to see if he can win more or if he will be stuck at 1 for a while.  Who knows.  Health, scheduling, desire, etc., all play a part.  I know when Roger won that 2003 Wimbledon - even I didn't see 17 majors in his future.  So who knows what will happen?

Murray has the talent.  Then again, Nalbandian had the talent, and others too.  So we'll just have to see how the future works out.

I don't like Murray.... You don't like Federer... but that's the "FUN" of being part of a sports forum!!!!  We don't have to like the same thing.

Seriously though... I'm happy for you Sid.  You stuck by Murray when he wasn't winning...and now he has won a slam so I know you are extremely happy.  Congratulations to your boy.  He held on to win it so the "monkey" is off his back - so to speak.  Now he really can be included in "the big 4"!  This is your time to enjoy.  And if I came across as "rude", then I apologize...I don't want to rain on your parade!  Enjoy this time Sid!  Again, Congrats to your Murray! :thumbs-up: He did it!

Dallas i don't diss like Roger,he's miffed me off a few times lol.Murray's h2h with in the top 4 has always said he was a big 4.The Slam win has taken longer than i hoped for,but if he'd have never gotten one(SLAM) i would have still been a fan.Thanks for the Congratulations fingers crossed Murray can keep working hard & win some more.
