4 Slam Finals and 8 Masters titles are a way bigger achievement that one Slam victory.

As for Ferrer, his career achievements don't stack up to Delpo's USO, but right now he is just a better Tennis player.
Not even Murray believes that. Grand Slam are the epitome of tennis achievement. Every player who never won one would trade his accolades for one, even Murray. In fact, especially Murray, who's under more pressure to get that elusive Slam than anyone else.

Let's see in a couple of months. Ferrer will no doubt be burnt out and Del Potro will continue to rise. I predict his return to the top 5 at the very least.

He's been flying under the radar now, everyone seems to be forgetting about him. Truth is, he's having a pretty good comeback.

He will be 25 next year, should be hitting his peak, health-permitting.
True. Ferrer has proved his inconsistency before; I remember he had a decent run for a few months in 2007/2008 and then quickly left the top 20. When things are going well for him, he can go on a consistent run (without any big results though), but you can always trust it not to last much.

A Murray fan should be the last person to write stuff like this. How long has Murray been predicted to win a Slam? "Oh he will definitely win a Slam this year (for the past 4 or 5 years". "Oh he will definitely win the next Slam."

At least, even if he retires today, Del Potro has already delivered on his promise by actually getting a Slam. He's no longer a promise, he has already delivered.

Even today, Marat would probably take pusher Ferrer to the cleaners

Why do you like Ferrer anyway? You dislike Federer and his era, yet you seem to like the player who bends over for Federer more than anyone else?

Re: Del Potro will storm the 2013 season

He'll just be a dark horse sadly. Unless he magically finds some confidence again and improve that serve which has turned to shit again, he really won't do shit at the slams. I mean I think like half the reason why he was successful in 2009 was because of his huge improvement on the serve. He doesn't naturally have a great serve despite his height, but it became a very formidable weapon in 2009 allowing him a lot of free points and now it has become very poor again, or certainly at least not 2009 status.

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

Re: Del Potro will storm the 2013 season

Re: Del Potro will storm the 2013 season

Re: Del Potro will storm the 2013 season

Maybe storm isn't the right word, but he should be the next man to win a Slam apart from the Djokovic, Nadal and Federer monopoly.

Del Potro at his best form is the most equipped man to do so.

This sounds fair. Not very bold though, a player of Del Potro's ability is kind of expected to get a second Slam at some point especially given how unbelievably well he's come back from surgery. Definitely could happen next year.
It's pretty bold based on his GS results this season.
