Re: More legitimate Grand Slam Title! Murray V Del GOATro
Soderling would have been the favourite in such a final for sure. Del Po had serious endurance issues back then.
Stamina hardly matters in a routine 3 setter, which is what their history suggest would happen (I assume you've watched their matches against each other), not to mention how much better Del Potro dealt with the pressure of the first Slam final compared to Soderling and how in both his RG runs Robin slowly lost gas/momentum after his big upsets. There's no 100% in tennis, but Del Potro would have definitely been the overwhelming favorite in such final.
