Terrible comparison. And we have Murray with 0 slams... Djokovic who hasnt won anything slam wise in 2 years. Roddick 7 YEARS!!! Del Potro is already at this point in time on a better stage in his career and closer to his best days at 21 than Sampras was. Del Potro is already an injury case at 21. Imagine what we will be at 23-27. So terrible comparison. And hes a larger player. Bigger players dont have great multi slam careers. Del Potro will be no exception
No, excellent comparison. If this forum had been around in 1991, I'm sure some character calling himself SetBorg or something would have been mouthing off about this Sampras clown who was supposed to be such a big threat, missing the Australian Open, already injured at 19, losing early in his next 2 slams, winning only Mickey Mouse tournaments, proclaiming his relief at losing his U.S. Open title, etc. Del Potro isn't going to have a Sampras-level career, but writing him off as a major force after 1 mediocre slam is ridiculous.
