Re: Is th REAL big four back?

What's the deal with DelPo now?

Is every loss he takes STILL with an asterisk over it because of a wrist injury?

Re: Is th REAL big four back?

As well as delpo played in 2009, he still should not have won the us open where he played out o his mind against federer who didn't go up 2 sets to 0 as he should have. Anyways, federer plays delpo differnt now than just trying to out hit him. He plays more variety, brings him to net, goes to net himself, and is always mixing it up. I believe delpo is back in fact his movment has improved from what it used to be. You'll see when he beats a top 4 player in the next events at dubai, indian wells, miami.

Re: Is th REAL big four back?

The "real Big Four" isn't back. del Potro wasn't even much of a challenge for Federer. Once he finally beats one of these guys, then maybe the talk can start - and even then there's not much to say given his horrible head-to-head against Federer, Djokovic and Murray. Beating up on Berdych and Soderling (which delPo did last year) is not the same thing.

Andy Murray: 2012 Olympic gold and silver medalist. US Open Champ. Wimbledon champ. Never been prouder of him.

Re: Is th REAL big four back?

We saw a player who'd previously been ranked in the Top 4 seriously challenge Federer this weekend. Sorry to say it wasn't del Potro.

It is a big 1, 2 very large ones, and a couple of medium sized ones.

Re: Is th REAL big four back?

I think he'll have better chances against Murray or Nadal than against Federer or Djokovic (although he may have a chance against Nole on clay).

Del Po doesn't like variety. Coincidentally his H2H worst record percentage-wise just happens to be against Murray.

Re: Is th REAL big four back?

Still top 4. The next 4 tournaments will illustrate this point.

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.

Re: Is th REAL big four back?

When 2 guys have won the last 8 slams we might as well just go with the big two.

Re: Is th REAL big four back?

As far as Del Potro being back (?) in the big four, he is in fact REALLY 4500 points back of the big 4.

Murray is so underrated here, it's ridiculous.

That really does end the argument. As much as Murray is ragged around there, that is a really big gap between #10 to #4.
