I think Jo's key in a match against Del Po is his serve, and the volleys. He won't be able to match Del Po in power rallies, so will have to play first strike tennis. I would love for it to be a grand slam final, but thats not going to happen unfortunately. I'd say Del Po on all except Wimbledon, where Tsonga might get the win.
It's also funny how it was assumed Guardiola would move to a Premier League team and that moving to Bayern instead was because he was afraid of real challenges
Yup, they'd definitely have a shot at meeting each in a Slam final in another era, but in this slow court era they'd have to both blast two of the moving walls in the top 4 back to back, it's definitely not happening. They could play a Slam semi sometime though, they were only a few points away from doing it at Roland Garros last year.
They could very well face in the Rotterdam final next week though - they'll be seeded #2 and #3 with Federer as the #1 seed. I'm hoping Tsonga draws Federer in the semis (and Delpo draws Gasquet) and beats him
