Del Potro will storm the 2013 season | Official Delpo Bandwagon
 
Just leaving this thread to bump it later.

Feel free to share your predictions.

He's currently #6 in the race, and will probably end the year #6 (currently ranked #9). I expect a further rise in the rankings next year.

define "storm"...a couple of QF slam appearances would be pretty solid.

He should finish this year #5 or 6 at worse.

And define 'storm'. If by storm you mean compete to win another Slam and continue to rise up the rankings, then yes. If you mean dominate the tour, then no.

By that I mean he will break the GS triopoly of the top 3, winning at least 1 GS next year.

Whenever someone makes these type of threads you better hope that you're right or its gonna be brought up repeatedly lol.

A slam win and two Slam SF would be a Del Potro storm.

Maybe 6, but how the hell does he get to 5?
He's over 1000 points behind Murray, who is 400 points behind Ferrer (though Ferrer missed USO swing with injury 2 of last 4 years)

By gaining 1400 points on Ferrer during the American hardcourt season + indoor season.

This sounds fair. Not very bold though, a player of Del Potro's ability is kind of expected to get a second Slam at some point especially given how unbelievably well he's come back from surgery. Definitely could happen next year.

Del Potro will not win another Slam in his career. That's obvious.
I also think he will decline pretty early. About Masters 1000, the chances go like this IMO:

Won't win any Masters before retirement : 60%.
Will win 1 MS tourney before retirement: 39%.
Will win 2 or more MS tourneys before retirement: 1%.

There are right now 5 players who are clearly better than him. Year-end #6 for Delpo is kinda optimistic, but possible. Berdych should end this year as #6 IMO, unless he fucks up like the last month and a half. My prediction is that JMDP and JWT will fight for #7. Probably (and hopefully!) Del Potro will edge it.

Slams in 2013: 3 QFs and one 4th round exit.

I'll give you three players that will be ranked higher in twelve months than they are now:

Djokovic, Murray and Del Potro.

If you don't mind me asking, who are those players?

And your prediction is extremely bold. Predicting the best player in the world under 25 years of age (by like a huge distance) has 0 chance to win another Slam? Either you know of some prodigy kid about to emerge, you believe the current top players will last far longer than usual or I dunno. But I seriously doubt you'd put your money where your mouth is anyway.

Didn't he just get completely demolished by Ferrer at Wimbledon?

Ferrer is a bad matchup for him and I think JMDP wasn't 100% at Wimbledon.

Also, worth noting that Ferrer is having a very good season this year.

Yes, he did. Which would be relevant if the OP had predicted him to storm Wimbledon 2012
