Delpo leads 3-1 in the h2h, but Tsonga won the most recent.

At the AO: Tsonga in 4 or 5
At RG: Delpo in 4
At Wimbledon: Tsonga in 4
At USO: Delpo in 5

Overall very even matchup, I wish these two would play more often.

They would both hand out a spanking each on grass and clay. Delpo would win a fairly close one the hardcourts.

Fast Bercy is Tsonga though.

Tsonga beats Del Potro easily on grass every time since Del Potro moves like a sloth on the surface. Tsonga would also routine Del Potro at the very few tournaments that play a fast pace. The majority of the tour playing at a slow pace favors Del Potro's defensive game.

lol Del Potro plays a "defensive" game??

Del Potro doesn't attempt to hit winners unless the risk is very low. Hitting the ball hard is not tantamount to being aggressive.

I think Tsonga would obviusly win on grass.
And Delpo on clay.

Now... Hardcourt. I think Tsonga is improving so much, and he could defeat Delpo, with his really good volleys, killer FH. It would be a great 5-setter battle.
I want.

Peak Delpo is miles ahead of peak Tosnga in consistency . Even when tsonga is playing his best always has some black holes, delpo at his peak even if has some black holes his mentality pulls him out . and without that mentality issues delpo is just a bigger delivery . tsonga's BH is just too big hole

This matches would be just about surfaces. Every clay match wins Delpo, every grass match Tsonga. Indoor HC mostly Tsonga and outdoor HC mostly Delpo, because outdoor HC and clay are 2 biggest surfaces, most matches would win Delpo if they play at their peaks for example 20 matches.

Del Potro is a long way ahead of Tsonga against majority of the tour but actually I think Tsonga could win this match playing very well. People who can actually be aggressive against Del Potro can still defeat him. Tsonga can follow that formula so long as he is volleying well.

Fast surfaces (Hardcourt,Grass,Indoor): défintitely Tsonga because firstly,he would be almost unbreakable (Tsonga's serve>>>>>>>Del Potro's serve) and his net play is way better than Del Potro

Slow surface (slow hardcourt, clay): Del Potro because of his superior fitness and movement and solidity on both wings (particularly BH).

Peak Del Potro won a slam.

Peak Tsonga (AO 2008) would have loved to play in final the Federer Del Potro played at USO 2009 rather than a completely on-fire Djoker.

Del Potro ain't superior fitness-wise over any professional player on earth. He can barely run after 2 sets of a hardly strenous game.
JMDP moves terrible as well, I don't know how the hell you can call him a better mover than Tsonga, though neither of them is good in this department.

whats scary about Delpo is that even if he moves that poorly, he could hit some massive shots without usually athletic ability because hes naturally a powerful big ball striker, he reminds me of Petra Kvitova:inlove: :angel: even though Petra too was a horrible mover but shes improved so much since then:hearts:

Tsonga is a clown. Wouldn't of mattered if i was in the slam final with him, he would fold like a cheap tent in the wind.

Tsonga would win easily on grass. On hardcourt and clay, Del Potro would win in 4.

1 match is not a peak....it is a prolonged period of time in which a player shows supreme performance in his sport or job

Del Potro is the more complete player. But I have faith and confidence that if Tsonga wants to up his game against Potro at a slam, he'll be willing to take him out in a hard fought match. Del Potro's return of serve is better, so Tsonga will really have to cut down as many UE during rallies otherwise he's going to be in trouble.

If they do come across this year in a wonderful match up say at the U.S. Open, I'm going to back Tsonga to get the win.

If he is a clown comparing to Del Potro then how comes that he has a far better record against the top 4 than Del Potro??

Depends on Tsonga's head. Delpotro is a more balanced player mentally. But Tsonga on his day can take it to anyone in the planet.
On clay, Delpotro should be a straightforward winner, on grass Tsonga will have the edge. The Argie again should win majority of HC matches but thats in a perfect world. The world where Tsonga doesnt have mental walkabouts every half an hour and Juan doesnt get injured every second tournament.

Hard = Pony 6 out of 10.
Clay = Pony 8 out of 10.
Grass = Jo 8 out of 10.

Jo's return game is too weak to handle peak Pony for the most part.

DelPotro isnt that bad in grass anymore. Remember his match vs Nadal. He massively outplayed Rafa at times

Delpotro is a decent player on slow grass no doubt. But Tsonga is a different matchup to Nadal. Tsonga has a bigger serve and plays a more attacking brand of tennis. He comes to the net a lot more than both Rafa and Delpotro. His game, when on is more likely to work on grass.

Del Potro on Hard and Clay but Tsonga on Grass.
