He is about to enter the top 100. And although he won't make it this week, I'm sure it will be soon.

He should have made it this week if he had beaten Delgado today- sadly his retirement from that match precludes it :sad: But he is young and has many years ahead of him to achieve great things!

This is a quote from the news and articles thread:
Greetings from Basel. Yes - the match will be hard. I do not like Murray but he is an excellent player, and has improved tremendously this year with even an outside chance of qualifying for the TMC. I honestly do not fully expect JMDP to win this match, especially considering the surface which he has no experience on, - but it will be great experience for him, and I hope that by this time next year he will be up there with Murray in the rankings.

It would be great if Del Potro manages to get where Djokovic and Murray are now, by this time next year.

I know it doesn't work this way, but:

Ranking when turned 17:

Djokovic: #338
Murray: #541
Del Potro: #209

Ranking when turned 18:

Djokovic: #128
Murray: #367
Del Potro: #106

Ranking when turned 19:

Djokovic: #63
Murray: #46
Del Potro: ? (23-Sep 2007) With 18 years and 1 month, he is #91.

Both Djokovic and Murray made the Top 20 with 19 years and 5 months.

Del Potro will be 19 years and 5 months old in February of 2008.

This probably means nothing. :shrug:

In the match against Gonzalez, i've heard something quite interesting. Don't know if I was hearing right, or Salatino was wrong; but he said something about Del Potro inside the top 80???.

Either way this kid is something serious, the past year he was 1200 and some, and now is inside the top #100.

But now it get's harder and harder, it's difficult to start ricing, but much more to maintain that level

Well I know he got 60 points from Basel - so I guess that this is possible - but I don't understand the rankings so well, so I will wait until they publish them tomorrow. I know JMDP's goal was to finish this season inside the Top 80 - so would be great if this is true :)

Well, looking at Del Potro's activity last year, he won Montevideo Challenger. But it seems that tournament was played a week after than it is being played this year.
It seems that in this week last year he lost in the first round of Santiago Challenger, so he had nothing to defend.

I really don't know how many positions he would advance, since you have to take into account the results of way too many players. And Salatino may be very experienced, but with the rankings... :unsure:

but I guess it is possible.

I don't know, maybe someone did the math and will tell us... or we could just wait until tomorrow. ;)

The good part maybe is that he has been traveling in the ATP Tour since the stone age. He knows a lot of people and provides a good insight on tennis world (especially with the older players). He does have information that other journalists don't have.

Exactly ;) The information he has access to is probably the only good thing about him... But I suspect half of the times he improvises :p And I heard him make the most disgusting snob comments and he can`t make a coherent comment about a player without stereotyping them..., specially the non-southamerican active players. Sometimes I suspect I know more about them than him....:o

And after this, in the clay season (this is Monte Carlo, Barcelona, Estoril/Munich, Rome, Hamburg, Roland Garros.) he has only 36 points to defend (the equivalent of a quarterfinal in Munich).

The 10 points from Costa Do Sauipe, he will defend them in Memphis.

As I understand it, Del Potro got 15 points from the second round in Viña, 5 points from the first round in Bs.As. and 10 points from the first round in Costa do Sauipe after coming off the qualies.

http://www.atptennis.com/5/en/players/playerprofiles/pointsbreakdown.asp?player=D683

Maybe I am wrong but I think Memphis gives 25 points for a first round win (thats reaching R/16) and 60 for a QF.

Del Potro has 15 points from Viña, but replace it with his 19th result and you'll have 9 points less. Then replace Costa's points with his 20th result and you get 5 points less (anyways he'll have his Memphis points by then).

You are right about Memphis, I didn't know the ATP had increased the amount of points this year (last year, a player received 5 points for a 1st round and 15 for a 2nd).

And how is Del Potro losing Costa do Sauipe's points if the Brazilian tournament last year was held in the 8th week (the week when Memphis is played).

Buenos Aires and Costa changed weeks.

He is not defending Buenos Aires points, but its irrelevant to his immediate ranking, because it was a non-countable tournament.

Yes, he is tall with a big serve. and he moves well. I think you could be right. Lots of the Argie players seem to have a mental block against it, but JM has already said he prefers harder, faster surfaces, so with some work and practice, he could do well :)

It would be great if Del Potro manages to get where Djokovic and Murray are now, by this time next year.

I know it doesn't work this way, but:

Ranking when turned 17:

Djokovic: #338
Murray: #541
Del Potro: #209

Ranking when turned 18:

Djokovic: #128
Murray: #367
Del Potro: #106

Ranking when turned 19:

Djokovic: #63
Murray: #46
Del Potro: ? (23-Sep 2007) With 18 years and 1 month, he is #91.

Both Djokovic and Murray made the Top 20 with 19 years and 5 months.

Del Potro will be 19 years and 5 months old in February of 2008.

This probably means nothing. :shrug:

Not really, he is like 6 months late... :p

Good to know that he is overcoming his injuries (touch wood), by far the biggest enemy of his progress.

If Juan loses tomorrow, he will take the new #13 (with 1518 points) on September 8.
If he wins tomorrow, then he will be the new #10 with 1718 points.

I have to admit that Juan is the underdog in tomorrow's match.
Anyway, what matters most is that he has proved himself in the big tournaments too. ;)

Del Potro said his goal for this season was top 15, so he's happy he got there.

But being #10 in the champions race, now he wants to try to get to Shangai.


With two AMS on fast surfaces, I think he is a serious contender.

A TV journalist said that if Juan Martín gets to the final (by beating Gasquet or Schuettler, we will see), he will be a top ten.

Congrats to JMDP for reaching the top ten! This did not seem really possible at the start of this year.

I hope he takes care of this ranking and does not burn out at the end of this year. I think he should skip Vienna and maybe Basel focus on the Madrid, Paris, Shanghai (if he makes it which seems like a good possiblity) and DC.

Either way best to him and what a way to end the year :hatoff:

Thanks all of you for the warm welcome! ;), but in the place I'm working right now I don't have cellphone signal, much less internet access, so I will have to "disappear" again in some days.

But it's good to see you are still around supporting Delpo and also your other favorites.

And its great to see Juan Martín being so consistent. Not so long ago people doubted he could be a pro, given all his physical problems... look at where he is now!

Vamos Juan!

As of today he is #8, the highest ranking since his comeback.
Important achievement as it guarantees way better draws. He can not meet any of the top players up to the QF.
He is #6 in the race.
