That he outplayed him, says nothing over whether it was a fluke or not. A fluke just means it was a one time thing, and never happened again after that.

And so far it looks to be like that (although with the whole wrist injury, I don't think it's very fair to say that), but I think Dpot will return and will prove it wasn't a fluke.

I'm glad you make yourself laugh. Roddick also has 1 slam- does that make him part of the real top 4 today?

Come on mate, How many players did beat TWO 10+ GS champs in SF/F to win their first slam title? Did you consider Nole's 1st slam win a fluke when he disappeared after that? Does every 1st slam title considered a fluke (for players who won just one GS in their careers)?

No, but Roddick is a former #1 and also close to retirement unlike Delpo so the comparison is irrelevant.

This big 4 crap is nonsense to begin with. I do think that Murray has had a better career than Del Potro so far despite Delpo's slam. Who will achieve more from this point on, I can't say.

Give him a few months. Hewitt will take his rightful place in the top 4.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

If Hewitt didn't have 2 metal hips right now and wasn't missing a toe, he'd be top 4 with a bullet.

So his cumulative head-to-head against them is : 7-24 ... These are facts...Head-to-Heads are just one component of course,but DelPo didnt win any Mastersseries tournament,he was in only 1 other grandslam semi apart from uS open win..I like the man very much,especially as a person,but I dont think so.
Did you consider the fact that he is younger than all the other players and the first matches they played they were already TOP 3 and Delpo wasn't even TOP 10??

I can't believe people consider the US 2009 a fluke. He reached the Masters Cup final two months later, something Murray never did, by the way (like winning a GS). And then he got injured. How is he suppose to reach another GS final being injured?? Does people really think he wouldn't have reach another final in 2010 or 2011 if he had stayed healthy??

And before that he was really close at Roland Garros too.

Delpo can claim a slam, but he still has no Masters title and has yet to follow up his slam final with another one. Murray may not have a slam, but he has a ton of other results that speak to his ranking.
It's OK. For years, Nadal was widely considered (by some) to be the real #1 even if he was only getting results on clay. Some people even call him the true GOAT today. You have to read beyond these statements: are they caused by substance abuse? or lack of substance abuse? limited amount of working neurons? poor quality of the working neurons? was the poster was dropped many times as a baby? lead in the pipes? early stages of dementia?

Hum... Also people who know what fluke means:

An odd occurrence that happens and is unlikely to be repeated.
So far it is a fluke. Get educated already.
