Isner has beaten Djokovic (on his beloved hard) and Federer in 5 sets this year.

Fo sho Isner can beat any of the top 4. Not sure why that's debatable. Ferrer is debatable.

The time where he couldn't take long matches is long gone, it's not an issue at all. The issue here are his injuries, not his fitness.
His fitness totally failed him versus Roger at the French.

He has won a slam already and knows he is capable of winning more slams.

I love him as well as his attitude, but where does this whole Isner and Ferrer bullshit come from?

Re: Del Potro Believes...

I don't think it is del Potro´s mindset that makes him a winner. His talent and dedication is good enough to give him a chance to big victories, and he doesn't feel embarassed to say it, since he has a both old and recent results that back up his words. Actually he doesn't seem overly coccky at all since he points out that he is not the favorite against the best. Some players have an attitude without so much talent though, but it really doesn't seem to help them much.

but he's won a slam and came close to beating the top players in slams at multiple times... he obviously believes, his game shows that

Even after enduring wrist surgery and with a 2012 full of niggles/injuries, he's probably the 5th best player in the world at the moment and is really only getting beaten by a handful of players. If his body stops failing him so often, he can only climb up further.




What do you mean? His injuries have nothing to do with poor fitness. Even if you are the fittest athlete in the world, you can't play tennis if you break your wrist. He's fit, just extremely injury prone.

I know you have something personal against players who you think are guilty of vulturing so if you wouldn't mind explaining yourself...

In a year or 2, if/when Fed declines, Rafa has a question mark over his head right now, Juan has a chance to be the no2 behind Novak. But if he plays most of the year like he is playing right now he will be ranked about no5.

This isn't the WTA tour where mindless ballbasher like Sharapova can capture Career Slam.

Del Shitro should be satisfied with what he has, holding a slam courtesy of injured Nadal and choking Olderer already makes him one of the biggest overachievers of the open era. He will not win a masters title, let alone another slam.

Yeah, he has a lot of heart, that is admirable. Too bad he has no game to be a multi slam winner no matter how much he "believes" One can only do so much when all you can do is hammer the ball as hard as you can.
