Post Del Potro Will Finish 2009 as World Number 5?

In my opinion Del Potro will finish this year has world number 5 purely based on the development of his conditioning, game and also maturity, he is a beast from the back of the court and rarely fails to put balls back in play, and from what i have witnessed this week has extra pace on his serve and also imporoved his volleying skills, in my opinion this has a really good chance of happening and i think it will, what do you guys think?

Hope so

I don't think so, he is only a MM king.

Also he is hell of a boring player.

He has no chance of getting into the top five unless he becomes the luckiest player in the world.

If he reaches the quarterfinals in Melbourne, he won't be too far away from the number 5 spot.
