Question Is Del Potro more respected in the tennis community than Djokovic and Murray?

(In the tennis community, would you say Del Potro is more respected than Djokovic and Murray? I think his victory over Fedal in 2009 US Open lifted his status to a level so high that results thereafter almost didn't matter. He had proven something that nobody else has)

You mean by the players? I don't see how we could ever possibly know the answer to that.

If you mean "by internet tennis fans who judge your worth solely by how many grand slam titles you have", DelPo should be respected less than Djoker and more than Murray.

If you mean "by fans of DelPo", then yes, DelPo is more respected than Djokovic or Murray.

Re: Is Del Potro more respected in the tennis community than Djokovic and Murray?

Well, he did win a slam against Fedal (Rafa in SF, the goat in the F), which should put his reputation above Murray's (no slam). Not so sure about Djoko (2 slams, but both against non-Fedal, so one could argue -somewhat unfairly- that they prove less).

His injury helps his reputation, I mean nobody makes fun of a slam winner if he is on a slump after serious injury (unless the guy is Nadal, of course, in which case people will insult him even after taking 3 in a row).

(Tennis community meaning players, coaches, former players and fans, the overall perception that you know of)

(I think Del Potro is more clutch in the slams than Djokovic and Murray. I would back Del Potro in a Grand Slam Final if he faced Djokovic or Murray)

I think he's more respected than one of them but not both.

He had to beat Federer both times to get there.

And the answer to this thread is NO.

They are both against non-Fedal but they are both against Federer.
