Its amazing how the player ( DelPo ) who is considered as a member of "BIG 4" has a horribe head-to-head against other members or pretenders for "BIG 4":against Nole 1-4 (only win is retirement,but win is a win),against Roger 2-8 ( Yes, I know,there is a win in a grandslam final in it, but also some 3 or 4 big defeats in grandslams),against Andy 1-5 ( Oh, Andy doesnt have a slam , no?),against Rafa 3-7 ( yes, there is that bombing lesson of US open 2009,I know)... 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.
