Del Potro Chances Against Gonzo

6/10

No one is talking about Gonzo. His chances are very quite. The young argentine might cause a shock here.

Is gonzo injured or lacking fitness?

Because it seems that most MTF doesn't like Gonzo

And Feña is not injured or lacking fitness, simply is the start of the year, and Gonzo is known for his fans for not starting the year always succesfully (expect when he started winning Auckland in 2005).

Fernando will win against JMDP probably in 4

A post that deserves to be on MTF Hall of Fame soon:

No he didn't. They played twice last year, in Vina Del Mar, JMDP gave a good showing and lost in 2 tight sets. Then at the end of 2006, they met again, this time in Basel. It was a chance for JMDP to get a win over a tired Gonzalez, but lack of experience cost him in the decider.

Gonzalez is obviously the fav, and if it goes the distance he will be the heavy fav as JMDP has never played a 5 set match yet, but JMDP certainly has the capability to cause a minor upset, soon he will be winning these matches regularly, it's just a matter of time and experience.

Re: Del Potro Chances Against Gonzo

I say Gonzo wins this one, but Delpo might press him a little. I'm looking foward to espn NOT SHOWING IT BECAUSE NO AMERICANS ARE PLAYING. ahem. Sorry for shouting but it pisses me off. Well, actually if your name happens to be Nadal or Federer they'll show your matches too...otherwise, no.

Re: Del Potro Chances Against Gonzo

Gonzo in 5, but JMDP has all the weapons to take him out. Let's hope Gonzalez plays like it is the World Series again. He's a home run hitter.

Re: Del Potro Chances Against Gonzo

Much as I love JM I am realistic enough to say he doesn't have much chance at this stage in his career. As jayjay says - he has never played a 5-setter before, and he had never won a match in a Slam until this week! Good as he is - he's still only just 18, and lacking in the experience of pressure situations, and also in stamina and physical strength to play someone like Gonzalez. Their match in Basel was very close and JM was a break up in the final set - but I think it will be at least another year or so before he'll win big matches like this. Always modest and honest, ths is what JM says of his chances in a newspaper article:

http://www.lanacion.com.ar/deportiva...n=relacionadas


"Jugué un par de veces con él y lo tuve cerca, pero si no hago las cosas perfectamente no voy a poder ganarle. El está por encima mío en físico y en tenis también, pero si estoy diez puntos le puedo dar batalla. La verdad es que todavía no estoy para jugar cinco sets en este nivel",

“I've played against him twice and I wasn't far away from winning, but if I make mistakes I'm not going to be able to win. He is better than me both at playing tennis, and he is more physically fit than me. I can fight him, but to be honest, I don't think I'm ready to play five sets at this level".

agree. Eurosport prefers showing women singles matches like ex. Mauresmo vs No.200 player or sth rather than an even match
