Re: Auckland Final : Del Potro def Querrey 6-4 6-4
I do not see the irony, give him a break, he is 20 years old. He is the youngest top 10, he used to be the youngest top 100. You know what ranking had Davydenko at JMDP age?
You may be right or not about the strategy, if this is his strategy, it could be useful for being 6th or 5th for few months but he will never go upper than that and he will not maintain this 6th ranking as last year he was not eligible to play some ms tournaments, for example he had to play Montercarlo and Rome Qualies. Saying that, that could be the reason of why he played 9 "minor" tournaments.
Before entering to Auckland, he said that this tournament was part of the preparation for Aus open, so let's wait the next two weeks to see how he performs in Aus open.
As last year Delpo reached Q in Us open, I do not think he will do wrong in GS tournaments.
Besides, I do not think Davydenko is doing as well as used to do before and I think JMDP can be a better player and for sure has more potential.
