Why do people compare Juan Martin Del Potro to Lindsay Davenport?

When people discuss male-female equivalents, why do they think these two are similar?

ANDRE AGASSI, MONICA SELES, JENNIFER CAPRIATI


Lleyton Hewitt, Lindsay Davenport


Pat Rafter, Mark Phillippoussis, Rafael Nadal, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Sjeng Schalken, Chris Guccione. Martina Hingis, Kim Clijsters, Serena Williams, Alicia Molik, Mary Pierce, Amanda Coetzer, Anna Kournikova.

They don't.

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 potro didn't play auckland because of his wrist, he just didn't want to seem a faggot like murray by insisting the tournament wasn't big enough.

They voices going through their head.

Someone needs to sit down. There are similarities, but firstly Delpo could NEVER EVER have the ballstriking ability of Lind-see, and most importantly no one EVER compares them anyway.
