Andy Murray has all the talent in the world, but his mental toughness may be the poorest of the tour. If, and that’s a big if, Murray can overcome his jitters when he steps on the court, he can be one of the best tennis players in the game.
He has the second best backhand, next to Djokovic, and a decent serve. He could have easily beat Nadal at Wimbledon. In the first set, he completely outplayed Nadal because of his aggressive play. Once he started getting into rallies and not finishing points, he started losing.
Murray is overrated because people still think he can win a grand slam. He has failed to beat anyone on a big stage to date and he won't win in the future.
A couple of years ago, analysts made a big deal about Murray’s new conditioning. Being in good shape is a given for all athletes. It does not constitute a breakthrough strategy.
Moreover, every time Murray won, he flexed. This shows a lack of maturity. Murray’s immature behavior will be his downfall. He resorts to smashing rackets and yelling at himself.
Those antics don't help and they often indicate to opponents how little confidence Murray has.
