I love Delpo, after Murray he's probably my fave. Obviously, Nole is in a class of its own.

Nolpotro friendship is genuine and both are great guys on and off court. They seem to care a lot for each other. Fedal is fake, Nolandy seems to be only genuine from Nole's part and we all saw how Rafa reacted to Nole last year. so Rafole is also out.
Delpo and Nole, this will be the rivalry of the future.
Great post, agree with it all

As for the last bit, it is definitely possible, but it depends on Delpo's health. He needs to finally catch a break with his injuries to join Nole at the top of the game. 2012 was another injury ridden year for him, let's hope it's the last of it. If so, he and Nole can definitely play a lot of awesome big matches in the future for sure.

If their QF match does happen, I hope it will be a great match.
Yes, horrible luck, it was the one draw I did not want. But yeah, let's hope they both reach the QF, play an awesome match and whoever wins goes all the way. If Juan's wrist is ok, don't think anyone will stop him before QF (only one with a chance would be Nalby, I'd say). Nole will of course be there too.

Re: Nolpotro Appreciation Thread

I like this thread

Nadal "Sampras, Ivanisevic match. or one between those kind of players, is not enjoyable. It's not really tennis. it is a few swings of the racquet. For me in the past it was just serve. serve". arrogance.

clay excluded. successive win 0.  If grass and a hard are fast. Like Sampras era. Nadal is able to win only with clay. power of defense and muscles. boring ugly. All the surface is slow now.

fake time-out. cheat. gamesmanship. too noisy annoying always. excuse. boycotts threatened. always dissatisfaction cry complaints. dissatisfaction to schedule. selfish two-year ranking. bump to player. ugly protest. always exaggerated appeal of self condition. etc. overrated by fanatic arrogant blind fan

Two great ambassadors for the sport.

Monaco - Del Potro - Nadal - Wawrinka - Robredo - Dimitrov - Chardy - Berdych

Actually there is more appreciation for JMDP/Cilic among Chinese fan groups of Del Potro and unfortunately I don't know why...

Here's a cool theme if you decide to make another great Nolpotro pic: the Fedal killers/slayers After all they are the only ones to beat Fedal back to back to win a Slam, not to mention that only players to face Fedal more than 5 times during a year and come out of it with a positive record (Delpo 5-4 in 2009, Nole 11-1 in 2011)

Time to update this after yesterday's instaclassic. Pics attached since they're too big to post here and I'm too lazy to resize them atm .

Also, their post-match interviews where both mention their friendship:
