Yeah, like the weak tournament he won today beating some obscure unknown mug in the final.

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 ain't gonna win slams any time soon, that will be at least a year before he has a genuine chance. This is his first non-250 title since his comeback, I believe, so give the guy a break and stop heaping pressure on his shoulders.

His next aim should be to win a M1000 title, a first in his career in fact.

You have to sympathise with Delpo, though. What might have been different without the injury?

No one knows if Nadal got anything left in him at all. Djokovic had clearly a decline year this year and I doubt he will be better next year. Still good enought to beat Delpo, but no one who has played so much top tennis as Djokovic is as good at 28 as at 25, he will decline the coming 3 years and the only question is how much.

Murray seems to be peaking a bit later and got less miles on his body, he will maybe be Delpo's greatest obstacle in 2-3 years.

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.

You mean like he's already done? then you add the secret word: again


I already hold him as one of the top5 favorites for WTF and for all 4 slams next season. Considering Nadal's situation Delpo is a better bet than him for next season slams (as it looks today)

Todays match in Basel also clearly showed Fed will have his hands full in 2013. Djokovic? well who knows. Appearently Olympics was a huge goal for Novak this season and there Delpo took his medal.

You'd have to be blind or in denial to not see that Delpo is building up momentum. Next year who knows?

Well done DP! Too bad you're a one trick pony and will never win a slam again!
DP fans will rave on his next victory against Federer, that should come in 5 or 6 matches

Proud supporter of El Tio , the greatest genius alive!

Alchimists transform iron into gold. Boriiiiiing!
Movie-makers transform dreams into reality. Yeah, whatever...
El Tio transforms Dull into a multiple GS champion! Daaaaamn!

El Tio has the keys to weather, court speed, draw making, umpires' decisions and perception of time between points, top players' fatherhood, and my libido!

This signature is in no way ironic. Please don't ever let El Tio think that, for my sake!

Indeed

After beating Fed and Nadal back to back at 20 and his astonishing comeback from wrist surgery (+several injuries), I'll put no limits to what Juan can do. I just hope his body gives him a break so he can translate his talent and ability into results.

It's great that he's beating the top guys again and will be in the WTF after all he's been through, but let's hope he can do even more as he's capable

A top 5 favourite at the WTF? Christ, that's impressive given there's a massive 8 participants.

Remind me again, how many Grand Slams are played on indoor hard courts?

He just beat the #1 player and he's a former Slam winner but maybe you missed all this

Nadal - Dimitrov - Wawrinka - Del Potro - Carreno Busta - Chardy - Cuevas

He has more chances to beat Fed (he should have won in 2012 in three easy sets but he chocked badly) Mugray is a complete mug on clay and is "winnable" for Del Potro there. Even when Novak reached the final this year in RG, clay is not his favourite surface. Del Potro already got a semi-final in RG (and should have reached it this year).

Hard might be the best surface for DelPo but clay is his natural place and where the top guns are not so powerful as they are in Hard.

You know, I never like these predictions of dominance for the next year. We should all know by now that unexpected things happen in tennis. As much as everyone expected great things from DPo following his USO win, that was not to be and instead it was a couple of really tough years. Hopefully, injury is behind him, and he will do well next year.
