Indeed. JMDP has won less than the single that Johansson won.

I wasn't on MTF at the time, but I remember several analysts predicting JMDP to get to the final by beating Murray and Nadal. I don't think many expected him to actually beat Federer in the final though, I know I didn't. Making the final was hardly a surprise, taking down Federer there was though; although he had been mightily close at RG months earlier, beating Federer in your first Slam final at 20yo is a quite impressive achievement.

Quite the contrary. I think Delpo would have won. Do you understand matchup issues?

Give Murray a break for fuck's sake. He got to six finals and would have converted at least three had he played in Thomas Johansson's generation. Having to play Feder in the first two finals and Novak 2.nothing in the next did not make it easy for him. He was unlucky again at SW19 last year where they closed the roof and allowed the vulture to have his 17th grandcake.

For the poll, Del Potro. Nobody thought he would crack the fedal wall but many people believed until few days ago that Murray would overcome novarer and win his second.

"If" one of these titles is more legitime than the other, that's Delpo's for sure.

Both wins were legitimate but Del Potro's win was more impressive for sure

Re: More legitimate Grand Slam Title! Murray V Del GOATro

You also got to consider the fact that had Soderling not had Federer, going for his only chance at Career slam no less, across the net from him, who knows how well he may have played that day in 2009. You also have the court invader, it might have shaken del po up. So many variables. Soderling was in control of the 2009 WTF match and only just lost in the end. Soderling beat peak Nadal and a great Federer in 2009/2010, back to back RG finals, Del Po has never made back to back shit. I am more than confident Soderling would have beat Delp Po, 4 moderate sets in 2009 final.

You are talking, utter wank. Soderling defeated PRIME Nadal, ON CLAY, in FOUR SETS! He was playing the best tennis Phillipe Chatrie court had ever seen. Del Goatro played his final in the semi, no way he would have backed up. Even in 2009 USO he didn't play half as good in the final as the semi, Fed choked.
He started horribly and I am sure he would have started horribly in a hyperthetical final vs Soaderking also.

Even Fernando Gonzalez would have beaten Del Pot in that final.

This thread is more legit than both slams combined. Both of them are so shit it's trivial to even bother deciding which stinks worse.

Del Po currently on his third consecutive final. Surely his slam is more legit and not a fluke.

They are both legitimate grand slam titles, but Delpo beat Rafa and Roger back to back, that's impressive.

Re: More legitimate Grand Slam Title! Murray V Del GOATro

Murray, because he is the better and more consistent player.. Del Potro got a good matchup against Fed and won it one time.. but has been mighty quiet since then, Murray at least consistently makes semis and slam finals along with winning the occasional masters.
