How do we know this exactly?

Really? I love Delpo n all, but can he handle the wind that good? I didn't know that.

His game is ideal to withstand super windy conditions: he has the power to hit through it and his shots have enough margin for him not to leak UEs left and right - which was Berdych's problem due to his high risk game.

Power and big margins on your shots are the ideal combo to play in extremely windy conditions. Unless you have an incredible array of variety like Federer, but he's a case apart.

Remember Nadal destroying him in IW 2009 in super windy conditions. In such conditions, the ability to keep the ball in play becomes absolutely essential, but also the ability to push with power (or in Nadal's case extreme topspin) is even more important.

I think JMDP would have loved those windy conditions, he'd have been unable to unleash his powerful yet safe shots and the conditions would have made it almost impossible to outmanouever him. Federer would have loved them even more, bet he'd have straight setted both Murray and Nole had he beaten Tomas.

When Lenders is backing your cause you might as well just accept you're wrong.

I never thought I'd see the day when I'd meet the person who can read my mind. What a glorious day this is.

To make this more clear, I don't think he can or will win all of them but I think he has a maybe at all except for Wimbledon and even there he can win if the weather is hot and the grass disappears by the time he has to play a big name. I certainly think he can maul Nadull.

You're a one trick pony and a broken record. Not hard to know what you're thinking about, and I've got news for you, I'm not the only one around here
