Imagine if Del Potros first slam final was against a non slam winner like Gonzalez
How basically do you think his career would have gone?
Think that beating a lesser opponent would have made him strive for higher honours and get that elusive slam vs a tougher opponent like a top four of Fed, Novak, Nadal or even Murray?
Was it a hinderance playing 2 great players to win your sole slam so far? Think you would do better having "easier" opposition?
"I did not play my best tennis, no? And..that is what enable him to win..to win this match no? "
