Default Re: Del Potro will storm the 2013 season

Federer has beaten him 6 times this year, so the fact that Del Potro pushed him close a couple of times isn't really that notable. A guy that loses to the same opponent 6 times in a row (actually 7 since his comeback) isn't likely to overtake him any time soon simply because a couple of the matches were close.

It's been over a year and a half since Del Potro returned and we're still waiting for this incredible leap forward - people were saying exactly the same thing this time last year and it didn't happen. At what point do we just accept that he's now a very good player, but not an elite one? His record against top 10 players in Masters/Slams this year is 1-7, with the one being Berdych at RG who's in the middle of a horrific slump.
