Andy Murray: Can he become a great?

After Andy Murray's historic Wimbledon victory he has led the question to whether he can become one of the all time greats of the game. 

So far the Scot's won two illustrious majors which seemed illusive for Murray after getting into four grand slam finals with no success (only picking up one set in all the finals). 

In the past year Murray has won the US Open and more recently Wimbledon - which has given him two grand slam titles to his name and also won the 2012 London Olympics which was also at The All England Club. 

This success ponders the question of what’s next for Murray and whether he can keep the momentum going into Flushing Meadows. 

However this time it could be more challenging for the Scot as a lot of younger players have put their name down as someone to watch out for in the future of men's tennis. 

For example the 22-year-old Jerzy Janowicz who reached his first major semi-final at Wimbledon this year (losing to Murray by three sets to one).

Also the possible return of Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer could make the tournament a bit more challenging for Murray. 

However things still aren’t going Federer's way after losing to the Argentine Federico Delbonis in straight sets and then in his home tournament in Switzerland. 

Federer losing to Daniel Brands 6-3, 6-4 is a worry to the Swiss star’s home nation as he has now lost two tournaments on the trot without getting into one final. 

However for Murray this could only be good news for Murray as it could possibly mean fewer challenges for him retaining the US Open Trophy.

And then after Flushing Meadows he will return to London for the ATP World Tour Finals in the O2 Arena which would prove a test for the world’s number two as it only includes the world’s top 10 players. 

If Murray could win this it would give him great momentum going into the 2014 season where he will look to overtake Novak Djokovic in the world’s rankings and therefore becoming the best player in tennis.
