It´s sad that a great player like del Potro missed two years at the very top due to an injury, but hopefully he reaches Top 4 next year.

He and Soderling should be in front of Murray in the rankings

I think he will be No.3 or No.4 at the end of 2012 and he will be very dangerous at the US Open.

It's possible, but I don't think it will happen next year.

Nadal knows what he's talking about.
After that match with DelPo it was enough information for Nadal to make that statement about DelPo reaching top 4.

DelPo isn't about movement, as Nadal said, he hits the ball like no other in the game.
A big statement but he wouldn't say it as he knows other players would know if it was wrong.

Now if DelPo does hit his high level who will it hurt the most?
Of the top 4 it will affect Nadal the most IMO.

Fatbutt has a cristal ball ? How can he predict Delpony's season, even himself can't. Will Delpony stay injury free and motivated, that's the big question and nobody can answer it

I guess Murray or/and Federer would get his ass beaten by either of them soon.h:

Pretty good ranking for not being near your best.
He should improve a lot, if just the endurance is improved without anything else he'll move up some spots.
Spot on.

Delpo was 65 points away from finishing in the top 10, despite his poor/mediocre slam results and skipping the final 2 Masters tourneys of the year. Not bad considering that he was ranked nearly 500 after the Australian Open.

Top 4 is a long way off being 11th, but with a year back on tour under his belt, there is no way that he fails to improve significantly on this season (especially considering his slam results this season).

He ended up at #11 this year and was not near his best and even skipped some tournaments.
When he hits his best as he's done in the past it came on suddenly, in 2008 he came out of nowhere and won 4 straight, I had to look him up at the time to see who he actually was.

In 2009 he hit his peak around the USO, before that he did very well but had endurance problems. His level at the end of the year was at least top 4.

Being older now he should be able to play at a higher level, all the elements are just about there now.

I'll be looking for some breakout tournament early next year, after that he should gain a lot of confidence. Once he has confidence in his shotmaking you'll see what DelPo is all about and his real prime.

I think 2013 will be his year. Right now he's simply not ready to challenge top 4. Delpo will definitely improve his rankings next year. Likely top 8, not top 4.

I think top 6 is a safe bet, and top 4 wouldn't really surprise me..

Re: Nadal:Del Potro Will Reach Top 4 in 2012

Interesting comments. I personally do not feel that Del Potro will reach top 4 next year. Even at his peak, in 2009, he was ranked no.5, and I certainly cannot see him reaching that peak next year. He still needs a lot of improvement on his movement and serve to break into the top 4. His consistency is also a problem, a few times this year we've seen vintage Del Potro, but he hasn't showed up a lot .
