John McEnroe predicts that he will win atleast 6 Grand Slams:  http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/tennis/23221769

the next one might give us great information. watch out for andy if he conquers new York again.
 
 
then I have got to believe that he will be the heavy favorite to defend his crown at wimby next year.
 
officially the arms race will be on between him and nole.
 
 
maybe andy needed a clear challenge. with 3-4 slams in his back pocket, he wil want to make a run at nole.
 
 
 
 
bottom line: andy could end up 7-8 if he can keep improving and stay healthy.

That's the big thing, isn't it.  I mean, people were predicting 20 for Nadal (If he stayed healthy)... It's difficult for a tennis player to "stay healthy" these days.  Murray has had his share of "something is wrong with him"...and he's still relatively young.  I guess it's those 6 hour matches. :rofl_2:

I don't know how many Slams Murray will get,if he was to get the USO this year then atleast 6 Grand Slams should be on the cards.Ozz i think Nole is the main man & on this surface,he will be very hard to stop.RG goes without say,that belongs to Nadal,if Nadal is not right then maybe Nole steps in.The Draw @ the USO will play a very big part,if Roger is no5 seed then anything can happen & he might win it.Nole Might win also & will Ferrer stay no3 seed? many factors 2 think about in 2013.I can't go for Nadal to win the USO atm,he needs to show he's up for it on a hardcourt.

Let's not get ahead of things. First things first, Andy has to defend his US Open crown.
Then we will fight in the shade.

Murray is realistic in that he's too far back to challenge the #1 ranking right now. So it's wise to focus on the US Open instead.

exactly affirmative.
 
 
that is really what he is saying. he is saying that winning slams is more important for him than the #1 rank.
 
 
 
I think that is a superb line of thinking from andy.

Actually I think Murray is focused on the Canada Masters first. He knows that in order to win the US Open you have to win one of Canada/Cincy.
Then we will fight in the shade.

Murray can win the USO and guess what? he won't get anywhere near #1. simple math ...

that is just the point. murray is too smart to give a damn about the rankings.
 
it is far more exciting and challenging to beat those who are #1 at slams.
 
 
you shift the pressure to them that way.

Here's another thing. Federer doesn't give a s**t about rankings, he can focus on winning slams. That makes him extra dangerous this US Open.
Then we will fight in the shade.
