There's no doubt Federer wasnt playing his best tennis but we should credit a lot of that to Murray.
Pretty much yeah. But if Federer played better, Murray would probably not have won in straight sets and the match would have been closer. Federer was way below par.

I don't think anyone said Murray wasn't immense.

So, so happy for him, it just feels like he's just overcame this huge obstacle and now he should be able to play to the standard we know he can.
Wait, what? I think it is clear that Austrailian Open is his strongest slam.

Even if he does win a slam he will still act like that.

Ok, I think Murray overachieved in this tournament. He was playing so amazing. He has never been that good. I think he has been playing even better than his best. . I do not think he will play like that in US Open.

Also I find it quite ridiculous that Murray is considered the favourite by some of you to win the US Open over Nadal, Djokovic and Federer. Yeah he won the gold medal but he never won a slam. NEVER. I am not not saying that he does not have a chance. He has a big chance but Federer, Nadal and Djokovic are still more likely to win the US Open than Murray. Don't forget that Nadal is coming back and we all know how Murray fares against him.

With that being said, I predicted before the Olympics that Murray would win the US Open and I still stand by that. I think he will face Del Potro in the final.

No one said he was THE favorite, one of the favorites, you'd be stupid not too think he was given his form.

ny I never said he wasnt one of the favourites. He is one of the favourites. Someone here said Murray was THE FAVOURITE which I disagree.

Meh hardcourt is his strongest surface, not much difference between US and Aussie really.

Also to whoever said that winning Olympic gold was a bigger deal than winning a slam . Don't get me wrong it's a big deal that Murray won a best of 5 set match but Olympic tennis is about as insignificant as Olympic football...

US Open is a faster court than Australian Open. There is a reason why Federer does much better in the US than Australian. Cause faster courts suit Federer. Probably the court in the Australia suits Murray more than the one in the US.

Slam is obviously more important than winning the Olympics Gold but you are exaggerating a lot. If the Olympics in Tennis is about as insignificant as Olympics in Football then why the fuck would the top players take it very seriously.

Half of the top players aren't even allowed play in it!

Plus it's not even as big as winning Indian Wells or any such tournament...

I couldn't tell you who else has won a gold medal and I really wouldn't care, you're kidding yourself if you think its important

I think this week pretty much proved that the Olympic Tennis Tournament is significant and of importance to all the players. Not saying it's on the level of the Slams and it doesn't get the same level of coverage during the Olympics because it's not a specialist Olympic Sport which only gets major coverage every 4 years. Comparing it to Olympic Football is really stupid though, especially if you watched either this last week. All the top players played that were fit and the 2 best players in the world right now won. Just look at what all the players have been saying about the Olympics and that's evidence enough that it's an important event.

My money is on Del Potro on US Open. Flushing Meadows is like his second home, plus he's playing really good these days.
