Wake me up when Del Puto wins a M1000 or at least makes a slam final. For now he's only the MM king who enters weak tournaments.
Yeah, like the weak tournament he won today beating some obscure unknown mug in the final.
I have watched all their matches except their first one in 2007 Usopen and that Davis Cup match where Djokovic retired. I am pretty sure I have read this matchup right, I am basing my evaluation on 6 matches. Another factor is how much better Djokovic and specially Murray puts pressure on Delpo's 2nd serve than Federer.
I guess we'll have to wait and see who is correct here. As a JMDP fan, I'd like to see Djokovic or Murray in his draw over Federer any day of the week, any surface. Besides, he hasn't peaked yet, I expect him to do so soon, 24 is usually a good age for tennis player so look forward to see how he plays next year.

Enjoy watching him, but he's a huge outsider to ever win another GS title.
Remind me again Federer and Nadal's ranking back in 2009? There's no top 4 combination more challenging than Federer and Nadal and Delpo did it. If he can be fit and healthy, he will definitely fancy his chances at another Slam title.
He already did it.
Well, let's not allow facts to get in the way of perfectly good hatred, shall we
