Re: Del Potro will storm the 2013 season

And I agree that RG is a good slam for JMDP. The high bounce suits him, similar to Soderling.

This is a thing of beauty.

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

Maybe Federer had mononucleosis.
This.

Clay is his best surface imo, not only because of the bounce. He moves very well on it and has time to unload his massive grounstrokes. I'd love to see him fully healthy and in form take on Rafa at Roland Garros. Their titanic battle in DC in Spain last year was an indication that Juan can trouble/defeat Rafa on clay, but JMDP's fitness was pretty bad at the time. Would love to see that matchup again on the clay of Roland Garros with Juan fully fit (and Rafa too of course).

Del Potro needs to work on his fitness and get his serve back to his old level.

Re: Del Potro will storm the 2013 season

This whole luck thing is nonsense. Del Potro was brilliant back in the 2009 USO and fully deserved to win the tournament. Had it been Federer or Nadal who'd played like that during the tournament we'd be raving about their performance.

Re: Del Potro will storm the 2013 season

He was very good at RG this year. He can be dangerous even this year in OPEN USA.
I like more his chances to be the player who will broke the top3 about winning GS, more than any other like Murray or whatever.

Re: Del Potro will storm the 2013 season

He could dominate the North American hard-courts next year. He should go deep at RG barring injury an then of course the fast hard-courts of the Us Open could bring major number 2. Which would be awesome to see.

66-1 record with 9 Coupe des Musketeers

Re: Del Potro will storm the 2013 season

Federer has beaten him 6 times this year, so the fact that Del Potro pushed him close a couple of times isn't really that notable. A guy that loses to the same opponent 6 times in a row (actually 7 since his comeback) isn't likely to overtake him any time soon simply because a couple of the matches were close.

It's been over a year and a half since Del Potro returned and we're still waiting for this incredible leap forward - people were saying exactly the same thing this time last year and it didn't happen. At what point do we just accept that he's now a very good player, but not an elite one? His record against top 10 players in Masters/Slams this year is 1-7, with the one being Berdych at RG who's in the middle of a horrific slump.

Hope his Olympics semifinal and bronze match have reminded some people of what an awesome player JMDP is and can be. He definitely doesn't need to fear the top players. when he is in top condition, he is one of them.

Only injuries have derailed him and hopefully that's past him now
