I remember a while ago there was a debate on MW as to whether it was valid to call Andy one of the greats. With stats like that and the USO and gold medal under his belt I believe we now can. Do others agree?
I think we can definitely call him one of the greats. For me he certainly is. I mean, I know it's obvious to say, but he is there with players widely considered to be the best ever to pick up a racquet, so he has to be up there. I know cynics will look to him 'only' having the one major win (so far!) but to win one at all in this era has been so tough - just ask Del Potro. The thing with Andy, I think, is that there is a strong sense that one will lead to more, maybe many more.
It's not 'just' the majors though. Andy's consistency in the game as a whole has been phenomenal. When you look at the tables for the number of Masters wins he has had, his name is right up there with a number of those considered to be all time greats.
I think Andy is right there with many of those considered to be greats, and I'd like to also say that he is the best we've ever had in Britain by a country mile, and the stats are really starting to show it.
