Well, you shouldn't
H2H since Novak became the top player in 2011:
vs Tsonga - 8-0 (17-3 in sets)
vs Berdych - 9-0 (18-4 in sets)
vs Del Potro - 5-3 (could easily be 4-4 since he was a set and a break up in WTF semis).
Novak is dominating 'inconsistent' big hitters in the same way Federer in his prime did. You might not feel the difference between facing Tsonga/Berdych or Delpo, but Novak sure does
Even slightly injured JMDP is usually more of a handful to him.
I don't agree with this. I use to fear Tsonga more than Delpo and Berdych (I don't fear Berdych at all
Not saying Delpo's wins aren't legit, but out of those 3, 1st was due to ret. and you know that if Novak wasn't injured in that match, he would beat Delpo. He would retire against Tsonga and maybe even Berdych too. As for the 2nd match, I feel that Tsonga and even Berdych would beat him in the bronze match. He was so disappointed that he couldn't get the gold that he didn't care much for the bronze he already had.
I do 'fear' Delpo more than Tsonga atm, but that's just in my eyes, seeing them play and Tsonga being in a not so good form for almost a year now, not because of those wins, imo, those wins don't mean a thing.
And those coulda woulda shouldas, I don't count. I mean, you chose to ignore Tsonga's mps but underline Delpo's set and break up. We all know that being a set and a break up against Novak doesn't have to mean a thing.
