winning a Grand Slam is a different animal.

Federer is correct. Winning a slam is different. The draw is bigger
and you have to win three sets to advance. Slams separate the greats
from the not so greats. Nothing against Murray but he has not proven
that he can sand up the pressures of a slam. He matured a lot but he
had problems with his back and all of that will be tested. The same
can be said about Federer and Nadal who also had recent injures. Maybe
it is Murray=92s time to win a slam. It but it will be interesting to
see who comes out on top. I just want to see some great tennis. Let
the best man win.

This is Federer's last resort...I get beaten like a drum everywhere but
they still fear me at slams...

If Federer wins it all without dropping a set, don't be surprised.

When Fed gets bounced in the 4R he won't be suprised anymore.
