Delpo thinks Muzza can be number 1 this year

Smart guy this delpo.

Quote:
Indian Wells runner-up Juan Martin del Potro believes Britain's Andy Murray can become world tennis number one this year.

The towering Argentine beat Murray in the quarter-finals last week on the California hard courts and is looking forward to locking horns with him on grass after confirming he will play at the Aegon Championships at London's Queen's Club two weeks before Wimbledon.

"Murray is a big champion, he already won a grand slam, he made the finals in Australia and he has everything he needs to be at the top in the future," Del Potro said in a statement.

"He will be fighting for the world number-one place this year and he can take a big opportunity in the grass season."

This year's Queen's Club field promises to be strong, with Wimbledon runner-up Murray joined by former U.S. Open champion del Potro and Tomas Berdych at the event starting on June 10.

Del Potro, who has taken a while to get used to playing on the low-bouncing grasscourts, was a bronze medalist at the Olympics staged at Wimbledon last year, and believes he could challenge for the Wimbledon title.

"I have a fantastic memory from last year when I won the bronze medal at the Olympics," he said.

"It was a magnificent experience for me. I had never played at an Olympics before so it was a big moment for me and my country. To win on grass at Wimbledon as well made it an even bigger moment.

"I think that if I play my best tennis I have a chance to win a grand slam on grass, but it will be very difficult."

He will be at some point, but not sure about this year.

Re: Delpo thinks Muzza can be number 1 this year

Has gotten hit in the head with too many balls ... Not this year. Maybe if Nole has some sort of dip in form and loses a slam early. Nadal will surpass Murray soon though.

Re: Delpo thinks Muzza can be number 1 this year

I don't think so. He might get to No. 2 if he plays well.

Why do we FALL? So we can LEARN to pick ourselves up

Murray will never be number 1. He is dreadful during the clay season.

Re: Delpo thinks Muzza can be number 1 this year

I believe he'll get to nº2 this year

but to be on top it's gonna need an extra effort, especially on clay season

Yeh, doubt he can get to number 1 this year, specially with Nadal back in form.

Tsonga is not going?

Wonder if he decided to deny Ferru from vulturing Hertogenbosch.

On the real ACC'16 Final:

Re: Delpo thinks Muzza can be number 1 this year

He needs to have better results on the clay if he wants to get #1. Anyways, I highly doubt he gets it this year with Djokovic and Rafa there and he has a Wimbledon final, USO win, and Shanghai final to defend.

He'll be quite confident of going one better at Wimbledon I'd imagine. The biggest obstacle for him there will be Nadal who is almost unbeatable on 'second week mud'- he has only been beaten once since 2007 at the business end of the tournament.

If Murray ever becomes number one, Tennis is really and truly dead.

He could have a hard time beating Federer too if the Swiss is back to his better self by then.
