I wouldn't be surprised if Murray wins the USO.

I wouldn't be surprised if Murray never wins a slam. Too inconsistent.

With his favourable seeding now you'd expect at least a quarters at
the french, then at least SF's of wimby/ US O

so anythings possible,

Do I think he will win a slam this year? NO since I feel that the
strength of Nadal on clay (FO in the bag already) + Fed + Nadal at
wimby will likely leave it down to the U S O being his best chance
again.

But he might well do it. What he has going for him is a very complete
game that should be able to transition very well between all surfaces.
Reasonable serve, solid volleys, solid groundstrokes, great movement
---

Indeed aside from tactics and movement Murray's main strength is that
he doesn't really have any weaknesses other than the second serve,
whilst not neccessarilly doing any one thing spectacuarly.

++ Murray, I think, will be dangerous at Wimbledon (even with the
media pressure etc) and USO... funny because he has the game to play
well in Paris... great defense, solid serve, mixes it up and has great
down the line backhand (ala Borg and Nadal)... but he's not YET shown
his best form in Paris... but his game SHOULD translate well there
considering he's a strategic counter hitter ala Borg and Nadal on
clay, but with a bigger serve... I don't know that he's as fit as he
likes to tell EVERYONE he is... because he's not showing his top level
deep into the second week of slams at least NOT YET... perhaps this is
the year...
