Juan Martin del Potro : 'I was missing guys like Federer or Djokovic'

A lot of people will watch me playing and will expect me to win matches. It's not easy, everybody has to realize that I'm currently ranked #338. [...] I look forward to meet again Federer, Djokovic, all those guys, because I was missing them when I was at home. We were just discussing on whatsapp or on the phone. Now I will finally see again the greatest tennis players in the world.

I still need a few months (in order to be able to compete with them at a high level). I want to have a chance against them, being in a good shape. Unlike now, because they would clearly be the favorites.

Good to know Del Potro missed playing against some actually talented guys, not dirtballers.

Poor Delpo

I very much miss him beating those top guys. It was something else watching Delpo GOATing . I hope he will be at the high level he once was by the end of the year

Re: Juan Martin del Potro : 'I was missing guys like Federer or Djokovic'

Problem is if he meets Federer or Djokovic he will get absolutely humiliated. Guy shouldn't be back, what's the point of him playing if he's in too much pain to hit backhands normally?

Surely he's spent tonnes of time strengthening the wrist, by his 2nd/3rd match this week he could only hit slice backhands. That hardly bodes well.

Hopefully he gets back to his best soon. The further guys like Botnic are down the rankings the better.

Once back to his best, I'm pretty sure del Potro will have no problem beating Botnic as long as the latter doesn't cheat like he did against him in Montréal in 2013.

More respect for Del Po now. Clearly he is a good guy

Re: Juan Martin del Potro : 'I was missing guys like Federer or Djokovic'

Still no love lost between Delpo and Nadal since that acrimonious match between them at 2011 Wimbledon, certainly can't blame Delpo, that was one of the worst behaved antics Nadal ever put on that day - even for him.

Nadal GS Finals wins over Hall of Fame opponents: 2 (Federer, Djokovic)

Federer GS Finals wins over Hall of Fame opponents: 7 (Nadal, Djokovic, Murray, Agassi, Safin, Roddick, Hewitt)


weak era argument?

You got that ass backword son.

He misses those 2 because he knows he can beat them. He doesnt mention Rafa because hes a tougher match.

He shines at Wimbledon 2010 was the worst, back to back ridiculous cheating versus Haase and Petzschner.

H2H Delpo - Nadal 4-8 (33%)
H2H Delpo - Federer 5-15 (25%)
H2H Delpo - Djokovic 3-11 (21%)

But don't let facts get into the way of a good story.

Re: Juan Martin del Potro : 'I was missing guys like Federer or Djokovic'

Del Potro didn't mention Nadal because he fears that Nadal FEARHAND. He'd better hope he doesn't face Nadal...won't do anything for his confidence. I wish JMDP well, he's a good bloke but he's Nadal's pigeon.

What is going on with this Nadal stuff. Remember Miami 2009, USO 2009 and Shanghai 2013

Actually del Potro ended 4 seasons in the top 10 : 2008, 2009, 2012 and 2013. He leads the H2H 4-2 against Nadal in those years combined.

Nadal has 6 wins over del Potro when the latter wasn't a top player for various reasons (too young in 2007, coming back from a surgery in 2011).
