Re: Del Potro will storm the 2013 season

He better make his move in 2013. He's been a shadow of the player that saw him win the USO. It's almost been three years ffs.

Re: Del Potro will storm the 2013 season

No telling what will happen.
DelPo may bust out at anytime.

He has a few areas he needs:

The forehand and the serve.

If those two are working then he'll be a threat and after that the rest will take care of itself, endurance, movement etc.


XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXÈ


Federer

Del Potro

Gulbis

Janowicz

Re: Del Potro will storm the 2013 season

possibly. the sad part is that a one dimensional ball basher storming the season isn't the worst thing to happen to the sport in recent years.

The four-named man will rise

Of course it's not the worst thing, because it's not a bad thing at all, well on the contrary. Del Potro rising again and possibly even higher than he did back in the day would be great for tennis.

He's one dimensional, I'll give you that; but that dimension is great - unmatched power off both wings. It surely beats having guys whose only dimension is the ability to run a marathon on a tennis court in the top 5, no?

Re: Del Potro will storm the 2013 season

not really my style. i'd much prefer murray doing better than del potro. he might have a lousy forehand but has way more variety, imo.

Re: Del Potro will storm the 2013 season

No argument there, but then again most players do have more variety than Del Potro.

JMDP isn't exactly known for his variety, but for his metronomic power hitting.

Re: Del Potro will storm the 2013 season

What can DP do except hit hard in the middle? Hardly enough against the top 4. He might beat one of them at a slam, but he won't beat two, which is a necessity to win a slam.

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!

Re: Del Potro will storm the 2013 season

Realistically Del Potro might, I repeat might, challenge for slams in a couple of years when Nadal and Federer are no longer a force, provided he stays healthy (big if). As a fan I'll be happy if he keeps getting to QFs of big tournies with the occasional SF.

Typical antics all came out in this match: faking injuries, grimacing and cursing, trying to peg Fed, trying to start drama, undeserved final based on an exhausted old man and a joke draw.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

Re: Del Potro will storm the 2013 season

Needs to avoid Federer, that is all.

Djokovic aswell, Murray too I think and maybe Ferrer aswell.

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

Re: Del Potro will storm the 2013 season

del potro is ok though his uso win was a bit of a fluke let's be honest.

i mean murray,soderling,tsonga,berdych are better players but didn't do it.

he just got lucky.

justin bieber is not the best in history.
funk was better than rap.
techno not better than classic rock.

numbers are not everything.

He was better than Federer in that final. That's what I saw.
