Yes. But if he can't win against an aging Fed while being ahead head to head and having a slam final experience against the same guy then I don't know. Del Po was destroyed by Fed here last year but still pulled it out against Roger at the US Open. Nadal is nadal. and I feel Cilic is actually closer to a title than Murray which is surprising. Federer may have been right all along. Murray is too conservative with some of his shots. It works against mugs like Blake or Melzer but not against Roger
I already post a respond to something like this in another thread. Here it is. saves me time from typing
.... If Fed played like he did against Murray, Del potro would lost straight sets too. Don't get me wrong, Del Potro is good, but people are overrating him. He's lucky Fed played like crap that night, but credit to him to have seized the opportunity.
Bottom line :
Fed at AO2010 final & USO08 final >>>>> Fed at USO09 final.
I thought we're only talking about GS finals here. Look, I'm not trying to take anything away from Del Potro here. It's not his fault that Fed was playing bad, he was the better player on that day and a deserved winner. But, come on man. You gotta admit that Fed was playing so much better in the finals against Murray. So much better.
You can say that Del Potro didn't allow Fed to play that well. Okay, fair argument. But, there's one shot that the opponent can't do anything about, it's the serve. And Fed's serve let him down that night against Del Potro. Unlucky for Fed, lucky for Del Potro. And like I said, credit to Del Potro for capitalizing on that. Heck, not many players can do it before against Fed, well no one except Nadal in fact.
Don't take this as a bad thing for Del Potro, though. Every champion needs luck. Fed, Nadal, and all past champions had their fair share of luck, too.
