I agree with people saying RG is his best chance. He has a chance at the hardcourt Slams too, especially USO, but it will be a huge ask to hit through the defenses of guys like Murray and Djokovic on slow hardcourts. Not impossible, but a huge ask. Wimbledon, I'll reserve judgement until I see him on grass again, he was amazing at Olympics, if he can keep that up he has a shot, but it might have been a fluke inspired by playing for his country, we shall see.

MTF games titles:

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (3): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013 and Geneva 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 1 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers

At Wimbledon he has no chance, not only can the three I mentioned above beat him, but guys like Tsonga and Berdych can and most likely will as well.

Roland Garros is an interesting one though, it's the only surface where I believe he faces a good chance against everyone around him in the rankings. So I would say that's his best shot.
well , if the courts are fasters like was in the us open pre 2010 or 2011 , delpo has many chances to defeat anybody.

Re: Prediction: Del Po wins a major this year

I like how there are more people jumping on the bandwagon after seeing a few of his GOAT performances so far at the AO, just last year I was saying similar things and I was getting ridiculed on here. Now you guys understand.

that is not correct , because delpo made great perfomances in roland garros and in davis cup too...and the most important factor is that delpo started to play tennis in clay courts like all the argentine`s players.

in davis cup he was capable to won 6-1 against nadal and over a much more slow clat than in roland garros and in spain!!!

delpo can defeat murray and with nole has many chances too , you forget when delpo was backing in 2011 he played a great match against nole in rolad garros and won the first set

nah, with all respect, you generally blow it out of proportions. I'm a Delpo fan, but I can see his limits and potential.
Right now, there's been a change in his body language, and the way he's been hitting the ball so far makes me feel like he's really on a mission now. I hope he succeeds.

Re: Prediction: Del Po wins a major this year

Not sure he is physically fit enough.

At year end masters he was exhausted in semi-final after 1 and 1/2 sets.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
