How very kind of you.

Wouldn`t argue with other arguments though.
Yeah. It shows he is always a contender for the slams. Aside from his one win he has also come close on many other ocasions unlike Del Potro.


As for whose win was most impressive, it is close. Beating Nadal/Federer back to back is an amazing achievement. However, considering the circumstances I still give the edge to Murray. After what he had been through in other slam finals and been 2 sets up in this one before getting taken back to 2-2 against someone with Djokovic's reputation for come backs/winning long matches, to do what he did in that 5th set was incredible.

I feel Delpo beating Fedal back to back was more impressive, but Murray paid his dues more. What else has Delpo done apart from the US Open?

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.

I think beating Djokovic in a hard-court slam is more impressive.

However Del Potro certainly won his in a thunderous and entertaining style.

+1

The more "impressive" one was Delpo's though, because it was a bigger surprise, slaughtered Nadal/ beat Federer in 2 days.

Re: Which USO win was more impressive/deserving? Delpo or Murray?

Both players deserved the title but I'm far more impressed with Del Potro. You cannot argue with that.

we aren't comparing murray and delpo, we are comparing their us open title, read the title tardray


del potro without a doubt

Je n'enlève rien à ce que Novak a fait mais je crois qu'il faut encore faire davantage. Rafa a neuf Grands Chelems, moi seize, lui deux.

This.

For me with Murray it's more of a begrudging deservedness with him gradually getting closer over the years, whereas with Del Potro it was an inarguably impressive performance.

Delpo's. First man to beat Fedal back to back in a Slam.

Hope he can fully overcome his injuries, peak and go one step further and become the first man to beat Federer, Nadal and Djokovic back to back in a Slam
