Murray can dominate grand slams - Federer

Post by Superdav » Sat, 20 Nov 2010 21:27:21


Roger Federer has tipped Andy Murray to dominate grand slams in the near future, and expects the floodgates to open when
the Scot finally breaks his duck.

With 16 grand slam titles in his trophy cabinet Federer knows what it takes to win major tournaments, and while Murray
continues his elusive hunt for his first grand slam crown, Federer believes Murray has the game to win multiple titles.

"If Murray wins a first grand slam title, that could possibly open the floodgates," Federer said in the Daily Telegraph,
"And he could start dominating and winning slams, but I guess you just never know until he does it.

"It's important that you believe that you can do it, and Murray clearly has the game to do it, as otherwise he wouldn't
have a winning record against me or so many titles already."

With eight wins from 13 meetings against the Swiss, Murray boasts one of the best records against Federer, although
Federer has dominated the best-of-five set matches at grand slams. The pair will meet in the group stages of the ATP
World Tour Finals in London next week, but Federer, who has lost their last two meetings, does not feel the Scot holds
any psychological advantage.

"I never really thought about it from that perspective about having a psychological advantage," Federer said."All I know
is that I have more experience than him. He has the benefit of being younger, and he's more, let's say, fit or whatever
you want to call it. Or dangerous.

"He has very strong things on his side, and I have very strong things on my side, and that's why these days when we play
each other it comes down to who has the better day. I don't feel as though necessarily he or I have an advantage over
the other. I just think he's become a really good player."

I think Roger is overestimating Murray's ability. Any top 10-15 player
playing 100% can beat him. That's why he hasn't won a slam so far; his
best hasn't been good enough to win any slam and it's certainly not
going to be good enough to 'dominate slams'.

Here we go, the same talk Federer did before the final of the AO.

Freddy speaks with forked tong. Once he says that Murray does not have
what it takes to win slams and then he says that Murray will dominate
slams. Let the real Freddy stand up!

Well, until he wins one, the question will remain as to whether it is merely
a confidence/belief problem that he has. He might be galvanised by a
win....it happens. I'm sure we agree he is certainly a very able player at
his best....just that we only see it a handful of times per year.

I don't think he ever said Murray didn't have what it takes to win a
slam. On the contrary, he's always been very impressed by him and
stated many times he believes Murray will win a slam.

I would have to disagree with federer because the pool of players are
ALL very good, not many weak players in this era.

Somehow don't see a rash of majors for Murray.  Maybe Roger just
figures than anybody good enough to beat him sometimes should
be good enough to beat everybody else.  Doesn't work that way.

That was Federer talking to a British paper. He doesn't actually
believe Murray is going to dominate slams (LOL) with Nadal being only
one year older than him for starters.

It is first Federer talking to a British paper and trying to be as
polite as possible, and then the paper making a crazy hyperbole of
what he said.

It's the real Feddy all the time.

He's basically just rubbing it in with these comments...Murray still has
not won a slam and is playing him on RR. Fed's doing his mental ***on
Murray, reminding Andy that he's still not won a slam.

He does say 'if Murray wins one, that could open the floodgates'.
He is being careful with his words...he is saying Murray is capable of
winning and dominating but not saying that he will.
