In some parts of the tennis world, the debate rages, who had the better 2016, Andy Murray or Novak Djokovic. Murray finished the season with more wins, more titles and more ranking points which earned him the No. 1 ranking.
But Djokovic fans will argue their guy had more Grand Slam titles, more Masters titles, more Top 10 and Top 5 wins and had the better record against Murray.
Murray did win the Olympics and the ATP Finals, so in terms of “meaningful” titles (Slams, Masters, Olympics, ATP Finals), one could argue it’s dead even 6-6.
So the difference? Overall match wins and titles, and that goes to Murray for putting together a complete season, first half and second half.
