Del Potro vs Cilic vs Querrey

Compare these three please Who will have the more successful pro-career?? See them winning grand-slams??

These three have similar playing styles, similar height, penetrating ground strokes and yet they don't venture into the forecourt and don't use their height and reach to their advantage Del Potro'serve is atrocious to say the least

Re: Del Potro vs Cilic vs Querrey

We have about 10 different threads on these youngsters in one form or another.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

del Potro's serve is atrocious. MTF never fails to deliver the comedy.

some people don't see his serve can be a real weapon. del potro has nearly no weakness in his game and is very steady.

Re: Del Potro vs Cilic vs Querrey

del potro is a younger, right handed version of nadal(flatter hitter, but physically hits heavy balls, and grinds you down, this is the essence of successful modern tennis at the moment).

i expect del potro once he physically gets stronger, he'll be #4 on clay behind novak and federer

he only JUST got pipped by #4 andy murray, and thats through two tie-breakers and losing the fourth 7-5. And despite not being 100% physically, he still was the more powerful player in this match.

kid is an absolute beast. top 7-8 for sure.

Re: Del Potro vs Cilic vs Querrey

Del Potro is in a league above anyone from his generation(Gulbis, Cilic, Querrey etc).

Re: Del Potro vs Cilic vs Querrey

Del Potro and Cilic will be regular top 10 players for sure,but i cant see either of them as a slam winner or even a big contender in the future.

So in 5 years time you can't see them being contenders for slams? Well, who will be contenders for slams in 5 years?

You are lost my friend.

DP's serve wasn't good last night because he was injured, kicking off his leg just wasn't working but generally he has a good serve. There's a very good chance that Del Potro can be a big player.
Cilic has a lot of potential, no doubt about that.
Querrey? Querrey's not in the same league imo. Furthermore he's older than the other two guys. It's almost like a thread asking who is better, Nadal, Djokovic or Berdych.

I'd expect Del Potro and Cilic to at least compete at the top of the game, probably be top 10 players, Querrey, not for me.

Re: Del Potro vs Cilic vs Querrey

Del Potro is definitely the best, and Cilic is also a lot better than Querrey.

Djokovic,Murray and some young and atm unknown players.Not every promising player can be a slam winner and big champion.Since Federer only Nadal and Djokovic accomplished that.

Re: Del Potro vs Cilic vs Querrey

Cilic ftw! Psyche...he's just a Mario Ancic clone. Choker for lifeeee...

Del Potro is all smash groundies but can't move forward or serve/return for shit.

Querrey doesn't belong in the conversation with these two. Cilic has the biggest upside he has the most complete game but he's gonna have to work on that second serve. I think for Querrey the results may come easier because he has the biggest shots out of all these guys...which will bring him more consistent results. He doesn't belong in the conversation because he's not nearly as talented as these two...

But only time will tell.
