Re: Del Potro - When Will The Hype Stop?

I blame the wrist injury not long after his USO win for halting his momentum. Worst luck a new slam champ could've got. If he can play that well again remains to be seen, but I haven't written him off yet .

I can't count?? 3 years he's been back from injury pretty much and 2 of those years have been him at full health. Did you not understand what I said or something because I can certainly count

People give Fedtards and Nadullgangbangers a hard time but Del Po has done shit. The guy got outclassed by freaking Chardy. Give me a break. He is one dimensional and so done.

He had a 5-4 record against Fedal in 2009, 5-5 if you include Djokovic (2-2 in Slams). This is a better record against those three than even Murray got in 2012. Also, despite ending the year #5 (but rising to #4 in early 2010), he had more ranking points from Grand Slams than Murray and Djokovic put together (they were ahead of him because of an awesome M1000 year for both but in big events they weren't even close) and also reached the WTF final. And no, not just because of the USO title, he did better than Murray in 3 of the 4 Slams and Nole in 2 of the 4 (same result in Australia). He also racked up more Slam points than Nadal but only because the latter missed Wimbledon of course.

Unless you want to argue he got hot for an entire 12 month period, which would be quite exceptional, his Slam win was not the product of suddently getting hot.

Ahem no, Berdych did not win the Davis Cup single-handed, he lost to Ferrer in the final. It was rather Steps who did it in this case.

So 2 results equal the whole 2012?
DOn't forget he lost his 1st match at wimby.

Delpo won 4 titles and an Olympic medal, and didn't lose to a lower ranked player in all 4 slams.

Do you realise he was out of the top200 in 2011? even went as low as 450's?

Re: Del Potro - When Will The Hype Stop?

Lol Del Po-tards

Even I have shame enough not to pump up Murray right after he has off day and dumps out to a random(lately though that hasn't been at the big tourneys).

I guess Del Po's loss to Chardy at this little warm up tournament is more evidence of his greatness!
An no, nothing about Del Po's results for the last couple years puts him ahead of Ferrer. Nothing.

Re: Del Potro - When Will The Hype Stop?

Great thread So many idiots exposed in only 10 pages.

Del Potro the highest seed to lose, looks to have gone backwards this year. If Chardy can expose his poor movement, imagine what Fed and Murray can do. If he even makes it that far.

Re: Del Potro - When Will The Hype Stop?

Del Potro is just a cut above the rest. Honestly.

Djoko
Murray
Fed

Nadal (if he comes back)

Del Potro



Ferrer/Berdych

Top 10 is something like that. Potro is where Murray used to be 3 years ago. Won't take much for him to break through.
