His first serve % isn't even in the top 20

This comes right after a bad rnd1 loss to a nobody like Roger-Vasselin who hasn't had an ATP win since July 2008. Don't you think is too early for conclusions like that? JMDP only has won 1 Slam and you already proclaim him to dominate the circuit for an entire season. Yeah, right :rolleyes:

Even federer domination wasnt straightforward, he would have lost many matches those years but somehow managed to win those very tight matches.

Many tournaments he lost one set to almost all players, i remember his "lucky" win over Takao Suzuki ranked #1000 or something and qualifier Ivo Minar in dubai, Oliver Rochus had couple of matchpoints in halle.

his opponents were just scared to win.

And what about last year against ruben-ramirez hidalgo was 2-5* down that match but was able to win, and robby ginepri who served to win match 2nd set cincinnati

Del Potro has a big forehand, good serve and great backhand. In addition to this, his defense is quite good as well. I believe he has all the necessary tools to do well consistently in slams. The big disadvantage that I see is his height and this could cause some problems as he ages. Otherwise the future looks good for this kid.

seriously

what is it with you mugs- all you want to do is put down every promising player, and write them off

Del potro was bagled by rog at the AO

he showed heart- he took Roger to 5 sets on clay (which wasn't considered his strongest surface)

he finally beat roger at the US (something no one has done since 2003!)

and he did ALL THAT even with a handicapped serve that has so much room for improvement

Delpy is a big guy- and his serve is a naturally DEADLY weapon. all he needs is to increase his percentages and he suddenly becomes a favourite everywhere

he's like karlovic except he has a great ground game to compliment his serve, he also moves great for a big guy- his forehand is a scary shot- his backhand is very solid

he is probably the only (real) challenge Nadal will face next clay court season- his game stacks up great VS nadal- he can blow nadal off the court, and Nadal cannot exploit Del potros game at all

ok, his grass court game needs improvement

but an increased first serve % instantly buys you so many free points.

especially from MTF

however, i do think such hype is warranted in Del Potro's case

with such a low serve % he still won a slam

with an increase in serve %, Federer weakened, Nadal not in top form

Mug-ray, and Joke-o-bitch no way deserving of slams- Delpotro has a free ride in 2010

ok, the calender GS was OTT (fitting for MTF) however, i don't see anyone stopping delpo

Delpo should do well next year, his game is not as good as it should get if he keeps working.
He can improve the serve.
He can definitively improve his speed around the court with practice. Add that to his already long wingspan. Think about that.
When he gets to the ball he knows what to do with it.
He's getting experience.
He already has mental toughness, doesn't have any fear of the top players. So no mental demons to shortchange his skills.
Only time will tell but he has the makings of an awesome player. Could be one of the best in time.

Wordlife doesn't actually like Delpotro (he prefers pushers like Murray and Wozniacki) - he just hates Nadal and can't stop salivating over that 6-2/6-2/6-2 loss when Nadal was injured last year. If Nadal has another bad loss, watch him adopt that player as his new favorite and put the match results in his signature. It's his way of releasing frustration that Murray at 23 is slamless, while Nadal at 24 is on his way to becoming greatest of all time.

1. How the hell would you know what I like and don't like?
2. You are a troll double account.
3. I have said Delpo will dominate (see my future of tennis thread) with Murray. I wouldn't say that if I hated him.
4. Nadal will never become the greatest of all time.
5. Why would I like a player just because he beat Nadal? You're talking out of your ass. I hate Nadal, and love it when he loses, but if I don't like the player who beat him, nothing will change. I will still hate them.

I would guess it's because you posted your first opinion of Del Potro many times and many people read it so it's only to be expected that you would have to post your new opinion of him (and the reason for it) as many times for all the same people to not be confused by your change of opinion.

Of course, my post did contain a bit of sarcasm because I've noticed that you do repeat phrases like "Murray will win many slams" quite a lot. So I hope this wasn't too much of an inconvenience for you :)

Anyone who expects JMDP to come back and instantly dominate are really blind worshipers.

Damn straight.

The poor guy has gone through a disgusting injury taking him out for almost 3/4 of the year. What makes anyone think that he'll come back after playing 1-2 weeks of tennis and dominate?? This is ludicrous.

Not to mention....Del Potro lacks one major element. Stamina/Endurance. He's very low on this.
At the Canada Masters, he lost to Murray because of this element. At the Australian Open, he lost to Cilic for the same reason, he was very exhausted.

He'll first have to raise his level to what it was before, but he'll have to play even better than before, because Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, and some other players will be raising their technique and consistency.

Next, he'll have to raise his stamina/endurance, otherwise he'll find himself caught in tough 4/5 set grand slam matches, and once he reaches the QF, SF, he'll get stumped. If he wasn't tired, I'm sure he would have been able to defeat Cilic in about 4 sets.

I like Rafa's chances when he plays Del Potro at the US Open next year. I noticed at Montreal 2009 that Rafa didn't have trouble with Del Potro when he got the 1st big shot in, and that will be Rafa's powerful 1st serve which he didn't have in 2009. I saw glimpses of the advantages Rafa had over Del Potro during the 1st set at Montreal (which Rafa lost in a tie-breaker). He can get Del Potro off-balance easier than he can Djokovic. There is potential for real dominance over Del Potro now that Rafa is attacking more.

and what intricate analysis will you do that makes you so sure youll be the best predictor here of 2011? im sure there are some profitable sportsbetters on here so since youre better than them will you take it up and make some money as well?

His predictions work wonders, just not the way he thinks :)

The more he predicts Rafa losing, the more Rafa wins.

The guy has least understading of tennis on MTF (and thats saying something with all the crazy Fedtards dwelling here)

And look what happened :haha:

That's funny because I recall these predictions just recently:



RG 2010: "Soderling in 4. If Soderling plays well, Nadal has no chance"


Wimbledon 2010: Nadal: "Oh please, it's obvious he's not going to reach the final. Soderling and Murray are in his way. He has no chance"


US Open 2010: Murray. "Djokovic has a game plan that Nadal is not good enough to counter...Don't be surprised by straights sets win for Novak" "Nadal is probably shaking in his shoes"

Anyone who expects JMDP to come back and instantly dominate are really blind worshipers. He didn't dominate when healthy so there is no reason to believe he'll dominate when he's basically not played a competitive match at 100% this entire year. It's going to be a while before he's mentally and physically back to his best level.

This is probably right, I'm a big Del Potro fan but to play at the top these days is very difficult. You don't see teenagers jumping into the top 100 like we used to. The game is extremely physical now and players are working like never before.

Del Potro had problems before he got injured with endurance, he was improving quite a bit but still would get run down now and then.

In the future he should be able to take care of this problem, many tall players in the NBA have this problem when starting out but almost all overcome it with endurance programs.
He should be in good shape for 2011 if he works at it, I think he will.

Exactly :) not much of a science to that; he followed it with these:


RG 2010: "Soderling in 4. If Soderling plays well, Nadal has no chance"


Wimbledon 2010: "Oh please, it's obvious he's not going to reach the final. Soderling and Murray are in his way. He has no chance"

Del Potro has a chance in 3/4 slams, them being AO, RG, and UO. You would think due to his movement that AO and RG would be favorable for him since US open plays faster, but he proved he can win that one. At Wimbledon he has no chance . Either way glad to see one of my favorites back on courts starting this week in Thailand.

Del Potro's domination???? He's coming back from injury............... I'll make 1 prediction, not sure if it will come true or not, but I will make an educated guess off Potro's injury recovery. My prediction is he won't dominate and the best example of this will be that he'll finish 2011 without a slam. Lets see if it comes alive :D

If he did manage to win a slam, his best bet would be the 2011 U.S. Open because by then, his injury signs would be near absent most likely. (Unless he gets unlucky sometime during the middle of the season and gets a severe injury again).

I'm already pissed off Fena is absent, so God Forbid, any other players from getting cursed with injuries. The more competitive tennis the more better, the more injured players, the more likely terrible non-ranks will upset some seeds here and there, and open up 1 sided quarter finals, semifinals and finals.

Thank God this last U.S. Open was not as disastrous as it looked like. The French players all dominate and reach the 3rd rounds, as well as some other bad players, then they all get their rear ends kicked in, and some seeds manage to survive, and we still get a classical Federer and Djokovic match, with a first ever Djokovic vs Nadal hardcourt grandslam final. Couldn't have asked for a more better ending, to make up for a terrible beginning.

Del Potro has no chance at RG or even any clay MS1000. One RG semi-final where he failed to beat Federer who played at 20% and he's now a threat? Stop overhyping this guy and face the reality. I am going to enjoy seeing him being put in his place during next year's clay season.

Federer at 20% ?

If Soderling can reach 2 consecutive RG finals, and Berdych can reach a Wimbledon final, then Del Potro can be a multiple winner at those slams.

Just common sense.

Thats funny when it came to Federer, you rafatards always predict that he would lose in nearly every tournment or slam he was in for the last few years, and there hundreds of quotes on this forum says that I'm right, so does that same argument applies to those fans too?

Well since he picks Murray to win every hardcourt tournament, he was right in Toronto.

Just common sense.

Where's the common sense? If Soderling and Berdych can make a few finals, then Delpo, who is a better player, can make many more finals. Up to there, it's common sense, agreed. But you are not talking about him making finals, you're talking of him winning them. Both Sod and Berd lost their finals to even better players. Whether Delpo can consistently win finals against Fedal is still something that has to be proven. He did win once, but we'll have to wait and see if he can reproduce that result, far more so if he can do it repeatedly.

One thing is for certain though, JMDP has NOT been a threat on grass. He's yet to prove himself at Wimbledon. If he can improve on grass, then he's a true threat in every grand slam.

Persimmon
09-28-2010, 03:34 AM
ROTFL. He will never dominate like Fedal. I don't see him winning the same slam for 4 or 5 years in a row like Fedal did.

Common sense? Robin is a better clay courter than Del Potro. Berdych is a better grass courter than Del Potro. There is absolutely no evidence that Del Potro will do anything in those 2 slams because he has done nothing to prove otherwise. The guy doesn't even have a MS1000 title on his best surface. After his USO win he's turned into some kind of mystical tennis god who will dominate tennis upon his return, which just isn't true. He's a decent ball basher, with decent mental strength. He's not going to dominate the sport even at his best.

Oh, so the Fedtards didn't swarm like locasts during Rafa's huge slump last and earlier this season? There weren't endless posts and threads about him never winning another major or let alone, the USO? Yeah. That didn't happen at all.:rolleyes:

Yup. Pretty much. Glory, refresh us MTF'ers of a time when you predicted Rafa would actually...oh, I don't know...do something crazy like---win?

Del Potro has no chance at RG or even any clay MS1000.

:awww: :hug: Hate to call other Rafole fans out, but we're the last ones that should be saying a player hasn't a chance.

http://www.thesportreview.com/tsr/2009/10/how-did-roger-federer-improve-in-2009/

His first serve % isn't even in the top 20

and his second serve isn't in the top 15

what happens when Del Potro starts hitting first and second serve % in the top 5?:eek:

i foresee a calender Grand slam

Del Potro FTW

That was close. :lol: You only failed on predicting the player and that it was actually a CAREER Grand Slam.

Del Potro was never going to dominate the game even when his career looked most promising. I could have seen at one time him being a 4 or 5 major winner who might spend some time at #1 at some point, but it is clear now he wont even get anywhere near that. A better question than if he will ever win a major is will he ever win a Masters title.
