Indeed, it will. However, I am not overly optimistic he will win a slam in 2013. I think RG may be his best chance (may sound a bit stupid for his later on lol), provided it's nice and sunny like in 2009 and he finds his form and is not injured. A lot of ifs but winning a slam nowadays is never easy except for Novak and Rafito.

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

I would love it to happen but Sir Del Potro has work to do.

Some people mistake the Distant Sun for an eternally raging fireball calling for your demise. Just like aliens from outer space. Aliens from other planets. Aliens in galaxies too far away from your own comprehension. Your demise is ultimately irrelevant and meaningless.

Do not question our motives, our objectives, or our qualities. Question your own place in the universe.

It is no anomaly that JMDP has a Slam and those three haven't: he's simply capable of hitting with a kind of destructive power and metronomic consistency that those three aren't.

I actually Tsonga is more talented but he's not a better player because (a) he lost all his formative years due to injuries (explaining for instance his backhand woes) and (b) he was born a few years too late, his all-out attacking game wasn't made for the current conditions.

RG and USO will always be his best chances, clay and fast hardcourts is where he plays his best tennis.

The AO courts are too slow, they are made for Nadal, Murray and Djokovic to engage in 6-hour grindathons. JMDP could have a chance, but it ain't likely. Wimbledon, no chance, he moves like an elephant on ice on the grass.

They are all clearly better than Potro, apart from Berdych.

Based on what exactly? Del Potro is younger than all of them by a distance and yet has achieved more in the sport (despite surgery), he also dominates three of those four in head-to-head (the exception being Murray).

Re: Del Potro will storm the 2013 season

US Open seems the only slam tailor made for him that's the problem. If he doesn't break through beating a top 3 or 4 player in New York in September, where else will he? AO is slow and favours grinders, RG is Rafito's backyard and his grass deficiencies were exposed by Ferrer.

GOAT response. You are like a politician! But Murray is better than Del Potro.

Thanks But why am I like a politician?

And Murray might be the better player right now definitely, but not the greater player overall, he will only be that if/when he gets his maiden Slam (assuming that happens before JMDP wins more).

Roland Garros is actually a better surface for him than USO imo, he has played some of his best tennis there. That he has a USO title and not a FO one is purely down to circumstances - getting a bit lucky vs Federer in USO final and unlucky/poor fitness in FO semi basically.

Re: Del Potro will storm the 2013 season

It all depends on what storm is supposed to mean. You've said by winning a GS but I think storm would be the way Djokovic played during 2011, for example.

I do think that if he can stay injury free he can look forward to a good next year or so though. I think he's a darkhorse for this upcoming USO, but I can definitely see him winning one of the two hard court GS's, unless Djokovic is playing unbelievable tennis in which case he'll win them. I'd also expect him to be able to get back to at least 5th in the rankings. I don't see him storming the GS's but I think he'll have an excellent season, again depending on how he copes with injuries.
