Who'll Finish The Year Ranked Higher - Berdych or Del Potro?

Del Potro currently only 100 points ahead in the race but will miss out on the Asian swing while Berdych is arguably also the better player indoors.

Berdych | Murray | Tsonga | Monfils | Raonic | Soderling

If Birdshit continues his form, Potro.

There are only 30 points between them in the race, but del Potro has been more consistent, so probably him.

Potro. It doesn`t matter that he won`t play - for Tommy time comes again to lose to some random players after great tournaments.

Seriously - it should be Berdych. Apart from Asia he will have a chance to gain some points in DC final (I mean opportunities for him where Delpo even doesn`t take part), it deserves to be mentioned. Not that much, but still.

Gasquet is next №1

Re: Who'll Finish The Year Ranked Higher - Berdych or Del Potro?

Del Potro is clearly the better player and should become a permanent top 5 player soon, even if he keeps getting injured every other week.

That said, I'm backing Tomas to go on an indoor tear, not only overcoming Del Potro but also gaining 1000 points on Ferrer and finally break into the top 5. Without a dominant #5 at the moment, he will never have a better chance to finally break the top 5.

Re: Who'll Finish The Year Ranked Higher - Berdych or Del Potro?

Berdych is a much better player than that overrated clown, he has better groundies, especially on BH, better RoS, better serve, better volleys, better movement - not so good mentally and couldn't fluke a slam like Aregentine ballbasher did, but not everyone is born lucky. It would be great if he ended the year higher than one of the most overrated players of all time and prove again that outside the USO Del-Craptro is a small tournament vulture who lacks the game to win a single masters.

At least you got two things right: Berdych has better ROS and movement. This post is a perfect advertisement for the old cliché that even a broken clock is right twice a day, since literally everything else is wrong.

Berdych does have a better serve

Djokovic | Tipsarevic | Querrey

So Del Potro has better volleys, serve and BH as well??? x1000

And am I wrong that he can't win a masters?

Am I wrong that he fluked his slam? (no other notable results)

Am I wrong that he's basically a bitch to the big 3? (Mandy as well really)

Time to stop hiding behind the 3 year old injury and admit this guy lacks the game to win big titles - he's ballbashing Ferrer who lucked out a slam. Their other achievements are pretty much on the same level (except David is more consistent).

He has a better first serve definitely. Del Potro gets a higher % of first serves in and his second serve is far better/less attackable. I'll definitely take JMDP's more reliable serve over Berdych, who has a world class 1st serve but poor % and a weak second serve.

Anyway, the only reason this is a contest is Del Potro's constant injuries , he's definitely clearly the better player of the two.

Their volleys and BH are on similar levels - Del Potro's are less prone to break down under pressure, but that's because he mentally stronger -, Del Potro's serve is more reliable.

Yes, you are wrong that he can't win a Masters. He hasn't so far, but he has the ability to do it in the future.

You're wrong that he fluked his Slam. He had reached a Slam SF in the same year and then went on to reach the final of the WTF. Conclusion: he was one of the best players at the time.

Yes, you are wrong that he's a basically a bitch to the Big 3. He has beaten each of them in big matches and has given big trouble to Nadal and Djokovic even in his return year.

But in neither of your previous assertions have you even come close to being as wrong as when you stated Ferrer is more consistent than Del Potro
