Re: What does DelPo need to do in order to become a real contender?
His movement is fine. With the kind of power he has, he doesn't need to be able to run down every ball like Murray or Ferrer. His movement is very good for a guy his size and with his power.
The keys are no more injuries obviously, and a better serve: he doesn't get enough free points on serve against top players, it's a ridiculously weak shot for a guy his size. If his serve becomes more dominant, the rest will follow.
He should also hit his backhand down the line more often, he seems to hit it crosscourt all the time, it's become a bit predictable.
Oh yeah, and becoming a bit more comfortable at the net wouldn't hurt either, but net game isn't that important in today's game.
