Indeed. And no-one has said he will always win, or that Murray will definitely lose to this player or in that round.
People being worried about potential match-ups or thinking Murray won't win a clay title is not being bloody defeatist. I really wish the holier-than-thou posters would stop attacking anyone who proffers an opinion or airs a view that isn't 100% optimistic. This isn't a Federer forum.
No need to be rude. All I did was give my view on the difference between being defeatist and being realistic. You are reading way too much into it if you think it's "holier-than-thou", and I'd suggest you are the one handing out the rows, so if you don't like it, don't do it.
Andy has always been realistic, but you won't catch him saying he won't win. He'll just say it's tough.
