BTW, Ferrer is having his best season ever, but Juan will probably still finish ahead of him. A decent hardcourt + indoor season should be enough to gain 1400 points on Ferrer, especially since Ferrer has run out of 'vulture' events. Even if Ferrer does finish ahead tho, not even a hater can believe JMDP doesn't have far more upside.
Yeah cause Ferrer has won more points in the 8 biggest events so far this year than del Potro.

I can't see him overtaking Murray anytime soon...Murray's got his number ever since that injury in Rome. So no 5 is a more realistic proposition.

Murray always seems to be doing well against aggressive pushers such as DelPo and Cilic.

This makes no sense. Berdych kind of has Murray's number and that doesn't mean he will overtake him in the rankings.

No one that takes down Nadal and Federer is lucky, especially on the biggest stage.

Just being able to stand there in the final against Federer without breaking down mentally in any way has to be appreciated.

In the fifth set DelPo was rock solid, he had plenty of time to think about where he was and how important it was.
A beautiful display of ball bashing at the highest level and mental tenacity.

Watch that fifth set again if you have the chance.

Murray is up and down. I remember he slipped down to 5th behind Soderling on few occasions (until the Swede permanently got out of the way due to mono) so I suspect if Soderling can ruffle Murray, Delpo can do more.

JMDP is a better tennis player than Ferrer. He can take his game to an extra gear that Ferrer simply doesn't have.

You didn't really think this one through before you wrote it, did you ?

Re: Del Potro will storm the 2013 season

I just hope he can stay injury free and win a 500/M1000 title. We then see if he can win his 2nd slam

You clearly didn't watch any of those matches. He gave Nadal one of the worst beatdowns Nadal has ever received. And then that 5th set against Federer was just an absolute thing of beauty. I could barely believe what I was seeing.

He was the best player in that tournament in 2009. That's not lucky, and that's not a fluke.

What is an aggressive pusher?

Re: Del Potro will storm the 2013 season

His US Open is lucky but no one will admit that.
If Roger plays like USO 2008 Final, could he win?
Rafa is just coming back from injury, otherwise could he win?
Besides federer defeats Djoker and Cilic ousts Murray which two has positive record upon JMDP. He is just lucky.

Because it's not true.

No. Because if Roger had played at that level it'd have meant JMDP would not have put him under enough pressure/uncomfortable enough on court to get the win.

Yes

This makes no sense; Nole had a positive record against him, but Federer had an even more positive record, how exactly was Delpo lucky?

I suppose Nadal was lucky to win FO 2007, as Federer took out Davydenko - who has a positive record against Rafa - for him in the semis, eh?

Soderling's game style is a lot more awkward for a guy like Murray than Del Potro who is very much the same all the time- hitting hard down the middle, whereas Soda can have days where he's hitting line after line as Nadal will testify and if he's doing that, it's out of Andy's hands.

Oh and didn't Federer have the chance to "play like 2008" in 2009 ? I'm guessing he tried and failed. You know why ? Let me explain. Murray shat his pants and gave Federer complete control of the match. Del Potro showed him who is boss, nothing less.

Demolishing a double figures Grand Slam champion in a fifth set of a GS final sure is luck.

Maybe Federer had mononucleosis.
