Del Potro is definitely new GOAT

Who can compete with that display of consistency, power, shot selection, movement, and serve? Maybe Murray at his best.

JMDP is the next Seles and Murray will be his Graf- lucky to win at Wimbledon and bridesmaid elsewhere.

Who contends?

Djokovic.
\ \ \ \
Coric.
/ / / / /
Youzhny.
\ \ \ \
Del Potro.
/ / / /
Paire.
\ \ \ \
Ferrero.

Mug Pony is a mug of the highest order and the universe can't remain stable when matches between top tier mugs like him take place. For every hour when such a match is occurring, a supermassive black hole will spontaneously appear, hastening the end of the universe.

Ahhh, time to pull out the popcorn and enjoy myself at this thread. All the major trolls seem to have arrived.

Re: Del Potro is definitely new GOAT

He will be one of the best, along with Nadal and Murray in this new generation.

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 Pony is competing with Nadull for unidimensionality.

Re: Del Potro is definitely new GOAT

Look at everyone taking the bait

Safin - Agassi - Kafelnikov - Kuerten -Soderling - Davydenko - Santoro -Edberg - Novak - Nalbandian - Ivanisevic
You dealin' with a few true villains
Federer - Wawrinka - Nishikori - Del Potro - Mayer - Rublev - Youzhny - Khachanov - Andrey Kuznetsov- Safiullin - Karatsev

Marat Safin Matches Youtube Channel

Just like Federer when he was his age. Fed was almost 22 when he won Wimbledon 2003.
