Who is the better player? Del Potro or Soderling?

both have beaten the top 2 in slams, and both have similar playing styles.

Re: Who is the better? Del Potro or Soderling?

At their absolute best, Soderling. Overall, still Del Potro.

Soderling, right now, has the biggest shot on tour.

Re: Who is the better? Del Potro or Soderling?

Bit too early for a poll like this in my opinion.

Lets give Soderling the opportunity to make a name for himself by the weekend before asking a question like this.

Re: Who is the better? Del Potro or Soderling?

Peak level Soderling vs. peak level Del Potro is hard to call. Overall I'd have to go with Del Potro so far.

Re: Who is the better? Del Potro or Soderling?

They are very close, but D-P is the one with the major and better ranking at the moment so him.

Soderling. Del Potro wouldn't be able to get Soderling to make UEs when he's playing well. That's basically it for Del Potro when he can't get the opponent to make errors. Del Potro is one dimensional.

Re: Who is the better player? Del Potro or Soderling?

Söderking is truly great player as we've seen today but Del Pony won a Slam, no?

Re: Who is the better player? Del Potro or Soderling?

Their match at the WTF last year should tell you it's pretty damn even.

If only Delpo can get healthy.

Re: Who is the better player? Del Potro or Soderling?

I have to say Soderking at his peak is, simply for the fact he hits a harder ball than Del Potro and is more aggressive than Del Potro is in his game and mentality.

With that said, Del Potro in general a better player. So JMDP is my answer.

Re: Who is the better player? Del Potro or Soderling?

Got a feeling we'll be reading a bunch of threads like this one the following years... But I think Delpo has a larger chance of really making it big, like winning 5 slams. Soderling, at his peak, can beat anyone, that's for sure, but only players who systematically win when they are not at their best really make it to the very top, and >I guess Sod, when not at his peak, often gets licked by almost anybody.

But I'd love to be proven wrong. Anyway, I can't help preferring Delpo (he's Argentinian, you know, it all stays in the family).
