Apart from a freak loss to Tsonga at Wimbledon last year who Roger went on to destroy at the Open, it was only Nadal and Djokovic that have been a problem in the majors.
Murray a threat to Roger in a Slam based on what? 2 straight sets losses? Good one! If you are saying this on the back of Murray's plucky performance against Djokovic in Australia, then you are wrong again, as it was just one performance, Verdasco even took Nadal to 5 sets to year he won the Australian Open for crying out loud.
As for Roger's victory over Novak at the French, nobody is saying that, this one victory means that Roger was better than Novak last year because clearly Novak was the best player in the world, but the fact that Roger beat him in Paris and was therefore the only person to beat him in a major all year, and the only other time the Serb faced match points in a major was in NYC also against Roger, does show that he is closer than anyone to taking out Novak in the majors, sure he lost to guys Nishikori but we are talking about the majors, you know the pinnacle of the game, that is where the top dogs shine.
If that is where the top dogs shine then I'm afraid Roger is now in the kennels, he hasnt won a slam in 2 years.
Also Roger was the only player to beat Novak in a slam last year partially because he was the one out of himself or Andy, due to the draw, that had the most opportunity to take him on in the semis. They were in the same half the entire year! If not for Jo Wilfreds heroic performance, oh sorry `Freak` performance,
He would have met him in Wimbledon too.
He got a win, good for him but thats all it is. One from Five!
A 20% winning average is simply not good.
And please, give it a rest with the `plucky performance` bull.
You are not in the position to patronise Andy or Rafa now or ever.
Murray is a threat to Roger in a slam because he is about to peak and become an even better player. Thats the thing with Andy, he is realising his potential now, as Novak has done before him. Where will Roger be going, other than down?
Oh and he has a superior head to head against him. Something Novak did not have when he started to beat Federer in slams. This is the present and the future, not the past. You are aware that Andy is 6 years younger than Federer are you not?
And lets face it, the only reason you respect Novak is that he stopped Nadal from catching up with Roger in the slam count stakes.
