He will not, and I said it a very long time ago.

Re: Del Potro will never win a slam again.

I'll pass judgement atm, let's see how he fares making the SFs. No slam in 2013 anyway imo. 2014+ too far away to say.

Re: Del Potro will never win a slam again.

There were signs at the Olympics he was kicking on- first strike play and some much improved volleys. He'll be at the WTF for the first time since 09- a good way to test where he's at alongside the other guys.

Re: Del Potro will never win a slam again.

It only depends on his health. If he gets his injuries sorted out for good, it is inevitable that he will more Slams.

If he doesn't, it's a maybe: even after wrist surgery and a niggle/injury filled comeback, there are only like a handful of players who can stop him, so it's always a possibility.

How exactly? He has a losing record to all of the Big 4 and has lost to Roger a number of times this year alone.

Re: Del Potro will never win a slam again.

del Flukro never won a Masters title... perhaps elevating him to Slam contender is being overly enthusiastic.

Re: Del Potro will never win a slam again.

Del Mugtro was lucky that he ballbashed his way to that 09 win, but his days of lucky ballbashing are over. He's got the game to get into the QFs/SFs, but he wont be beating Djokovic, Nadull, Mugray, Federer but just being the one-dimensional ballbashing it up the middle of the court player that he is.

He might, but it'll be hard for him because he won't be helped by organizers.

Pretty sure you claimed he was the future of tennis. Del-Botro will win RG 2012, no?

Re: Del Potro will never win a slam again.

Great putting your foot in it, then getting quoted later for being wrong. Here's my own unneccesarily confident statement regarding Delpo..

Del Potro won't even make another GS final, this lumbering mug won't even fluke a Masters.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.
