It was very sweet of you though but I got used hearing the negative all the time.
I agree, it will then be sweeter for you when he finally wins one.

Oh, it will be crazy. I cannot simply imagine that. But more importantly, he should have the taste of it. That would be the sweetest. God knows the ordeal he goes through every time he loses big.

That's what life is all about  :) Patience on Murray's part will be rewarded. I just don't like his body language when he starts losing...he sulks, shows despair on his face, shouts...that's not something you'd like your opponent to see. that's where Rafa and Fed are so good at. Hopefully Murray will improve on that. I really want to see him lift a slam.

That's because Murray is too human. There's nothing fake about him. He's honest and genuine with his feelings. Besides, it's all part of growing up and people are different.

I can't claim him to be that holy because I don't know him nor Rafa for the matter personally. All I am doing is trying to answer the question in this topic. He is talented without doubt, if he has to win slams, he needs to better his attitude and his forehand.

I really thought it's the national alcoholism in British sports that's getting in the way of Murray's Slam title, Dirtykash.
 
Jankovic, on the other hand, has absolutely no excuses other than the fact that, she's not prettier than Wozniacki or Sharapova? or perhaps you should change the thread title from Jankovic to Wozniacki unless she's too pretty for you?

The streak continues. So long, Murray. Looking forward to the end of June, when you won't be winning Wimbledon again. Fail.

Wow, you did you predict that?

Petra Kvitova has won a major but not Jankovic? That's sad.

Murray will win a grandslam. I am sure about that. He is far too talented not to. jankovic may not, considering the very weak field in the WTA and the numerous opportunities she has been gifted with, she has just wasted her chances. Such is not the case with Murray. He has to battle a tough field, expectations (wimbledon especially) and has to beat two of the greatest players of all time to win even a masters tournament leave alone a slam, but his time will come. He will win one. Sure his forehand is not up there, but nothing he cannot develop. I just don't like the way he sulks though. It gives more confidence to the opponent.

He's already beaten them in Toronto Masters just last year. Nadal in the semi and then Federer in the final. All in straight sets.

Yes, that's why I say that a slam is also around the corner

That corner block is getting longer. He better hurry or he may never get it.  There are many great players who went their entire career without a slam.  So...it HAS happened before.  It's no guarantee that Murray will win one.

Agree, with each passing slam it gets tougher and tougher

Oh no you dittn't!!!

Personally, I'd much rather Andy (not Roddick) had beaten Nole at his best.  Regardless, a win is a win and I'm sure they'll have a few more matches against each other. :))
CONK da ball!!!
