Not to toot my own horn
.. But I called it a few months ago.. I said dont be too hung up on the old Del Potro yet.. Ive said it time and time again that this guy will most likely be injury plagued most of his career. And wouldnt u know it its saddled with another injury again.. I wouldnt expect too much consistent winning out of this guy.. Lets face it.. Hes too big for tennis. A guy that size is only going to get more injury prone as his career goes on.
He wins the USO and people are led to believe that the Era of the big ball basher Del Potro is upon us. Lets see if this guy can even stay healthy for one to even necessitate an entire domninant career. Yes he is capable of catching fire and be a deadly player.. Many players are really. But as we have seen again with today's field.. they either do not have the ability to win consistently on a level like Nadal pre-injury of how Fed has been his whole career. Dont count your chickens until they hatch.
The deal today with most of the guys is even if they have the ability to be greats... case in point a guy like del Potro will most likely be blinsided with injuries to achieve such a feat.
Hate to say it.. But its true.. We wont see a consistent week in week out player for a LONG TIME on a dominant level like Federer or a guy who can maintain a year end number 1 for 6 years like Pete. GUys today either physically and mentally lack the week in week out consistency, or in del potros case has the ability but cant stay healthy.. Its usually one or the other with the guys today
