Djokovic vs Del Potro. Who's better?

In terms of achievements, obviously Djokovic is better. But, Del Potro is younger.
Both have 1 slam, beating the GOAT in the process. Both is fairly consistent (well, not recently. But, overall they are).

H2H Djokovic leads 3-0. But their last meeting was before Del Potro won his slam. I think Del Potro is better now.

What I want to know, who do you guys think between these two, that has the better game? Which one is more talented? Which one will ultimately have the better future?
Well, the answer for the last question will be speculation, of course. So speculate away!!

Re: Djokovic vs Del Potro. Who's better?

None of them are good at the moment. Delpo is still celebrating his USO GS title on a long vacation, while Nole is still celbrating past successes and the recent Davis Cup win!!!!! At least Djoko is making an effort to come back, but his serve is out of order and I don't see it coming back any time soon!!!!!! If it happens that they meet I hope it is during clay court season, but I expect a "push fest" from them both, with Nole somehow getting to the finish line!!!!!!!??????

Big difference is that the argie defeated a healthy Federer

Apart from that, Djokovic is a better and more complete player

Del potro is better , right now. Novak is changing things that made him to the top. Del potro is injured ,so we cant say much about him. At the AO 10' he was in a good form.

Aparte from that, Djokovic is a better and more complete player
Choking Fed and sick Fed were about equal,Federer was all over him until his brain went complete walkabout half way through and Delpo then upped his game and took advantage(just like Djoko had done under different circumstaces).That fifth set from Fed in US was a complete and utter embarrassment to his legacy it was that poor

Faker is the more talented, and better, but it doesn't say much- both are uni-dimensional baseliners with little variety.

Re: Djokovic vs Del Potro. Who's better?

BTW. I think Murray has been unlucky to play Fed at slam finals when Fed was coming from previous loss at a slam final. Fed lost Wimbledon 2008 so of course he was hungry at USO 2008. Fed lost USO 2009 and was hungry at AO 2010. Meanwhile Del Potro was lucky that Fed had won the channel slam before the USO 2009. Bad timing for Murray. Twice so far.

Re: Djokovic vs Del Potro. Who's better?

What about their game? Djokovic has better defense, but Del Potro has a much penetrating shots. Which do you think is better suited to today's game?

Re: Djokovic vs Del Potro. Who's better?

Do you mean who is better now? Cause Djokovic sucks these days and JMDP hasn't done shit and been injured since the USO title.

Or who's career achievements are better to this point? If that, then Djokovic.
