4.

Sadly I don't think one of them will be a slam though. But I really hoped I'm somehow proved wrong.

If he recapture his 09 form and gets 100 percent healthy again... I could see him stealing the French, repeat at the USO.. And who knows maybe Wimbledon depending on Nadal.. I CERTAINLY think he can beat Nole there.. Nadal is questionable though. Even less the top form at wimbledon last year he still trouble Nadal quite a bit

that means an outside chance of 3 slams if he is fit?

Some valuable "250" like Delray Beach and Estoril.

i think he can target one of the two hardcourt slams next year......i also think he does well in the french......he's got the game for overpowering opponents on clay......his clay record might be average at the moment but he is capable of beating big guns on clay......

Two titles. A 250 and a 500.

I think if top form he might be more of a threat then Murray and he gave Nadal a tough time at wimbledon last year and he can beat Nole. . I don't see really anyone outside the top 4 that poses the type of threat Del Potro does if hes healthy and in top form really.

Of course.. he probably won't be in top form. And Nadal will have to be below top form as well.. I think Nadal will be fine by next year though.


Potentially.. Del Potro could be a big threat next year at 3 of the 4 anyways.. Of course at the end of the day.... he probably wont be

Re: Predict the no. of titles for Del Potro in 2012

it all boils down to his fitness and conditioning......if he's over his fitness issues, he will do really well next year......i don't think there's a massive drop in his level of play......the game is pretty simple too......he just goes for it without any hesitation and a little more consistency like in 2009, he's right back in the mix......his biggest strength is that he doesn't fear anybody and stays very composed no matter who the opponent is......something tells me that djokovic for one wouldn't want to face him on clay or grass next year......

Re: Predict the no. of titles for Del Potro in 2012

First masters looks likely.

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.
