Memphis QF: Michael Russel vs Juan Martin del Potro

Who will win ?

Russell doesn't seem to be a threat for Del Potro but the head-to-head is tight :

Russell should be a gym instructor not a tennis player. De Potro is back and has finally gotten over the wrist injury. Del Potro will maul Russell in straights. If your a Russell fan you might want to look away, this will be hard to watch

Re: Memphis QF: Michael Russel vs Juan Martin del Potro

Iron mike in straights, may even drop a game or two to make it interestig.

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.
