Well, he was a solid top 10 player but he only became truly elite in 2009. Either way, it's hardly relevant. The point is that Djokovic vs Del Potro is not as favorable/comfortable a matchup as the 6-2 H2H might suggest imo.

The Djokovic blend of attack and defense will always be too much for a one-dimensional basher, and heck, even Murray (Djokovic-Lite) has wins against Del-Potro.
I'd indeed be very deluded if I thought this, which I don't
