Personally, I doubt it but I'd be happy to see win 1 or 2 big titles next year

It is relevant as it shows where he is currently at. Yes Ferrer is in the form of his life but it still shows how far off Potro is of the required level to get to #5.

But I seriously doubt you'd put your money where your mouth is anyway.
The 5 players are:
1.Roger Federer
2.Novak Djokovic
3.Rafael Nadal
4.Andy Murray
5.David Ferrer

Let's be patient for a couple of months and see who does better

Djokovic? I think he and Federer will be the top 2, maybe like 1000 points ahead of Nadal, because Rafa is expected to miss a couple of big tourneys now. as for #1, Fedole 50%-50%.

Murray? I hope so, but I doubt it. I think he needs a Slam to get ahead of Rafa.

Del Potro? Higher than his current ranking (9), but not higher than his ranking at the race from January (6).

It's relevant
This is probably Juan's worst surface, but same thing goes for Ferrer. David is a better player right now.

Well, Wimbledon will be part of the 2013 season.
One big title would be enough. Seeing him win another Slam after having wrist surgery and all the struggles he's endured would be like the best moment ever. I'm not going to predict when and where or even if; when he had surgery I thought he might never be a top player again, so I'm just happy he's up there again and playing good tennis. Won't be disappointed if he never wins again, just extremely happy if he does.

And yes, Wimbledon is part of the 2013 season but JMDP will never be great on grass, don't think he will ever have a chance to win Wimbledon. He should reach QF once tho and completely his QF set.

It would be nice to see him re-emerge as a force to be reckoned with but I don't have high hopes of that happening. No matter what happens, his epic run at USO 2009 will be the highlight of his career.

I suppose the corresponding images for Murray and Ferrer were just all censored, that's the only explanation.

BTW, Ferrer is having his best season ever, but Juan will probably still finish ahead of him. A decent hardcourt + indoor season should be enough to gain 1400 points on Ferrer, especially since Ferrer has run out of 'vulture' events. Even if Ferrer does finish ahead tho, not even a hater can believe JMDP doesn't have far more upside.

So you don't agree that Murray is a top4 player?

I am not sure who this is obvious. The players you are referring to as better are older than him. He is miles ahead of anyone his own age or younger. Murray and Djokovic is not much older, true, but still I can easily see DelPo having chances of winning in the future. Surely not all Americans (North and South) winning US Open at 20 can be destined to remain one slam wonders....

I agree that he deserves to ranked in the top 4, and after watching the Wimbledon final I believe he can get his Slam title at some point. But he hasn't yet.

MTF has this bizarre habit of trashing 'one Slam wonders' and hyping up talented (or even untalented Ferrer's case) players who are close but never win one to ridiculous extents. Seems like having 0 Slams and repeatedly failing in the biggest moments gives you better fame around here than having won 'only' one.

So? He won a slam. Someone who won a Slam doesn't necessarily has a better career than someone who hasn't. Slams are not everything. It's the biggest thing there is to achieve, but at some point multiple other titles and finals can stack up to one GS.

4 Slam Finals and 8 Masters titles are a way bigger achievement that one Slam victory.

As for Ferrer, his career achievements don't stack up to Delpo's USO, but right now he is just a better Tennis player.

Yep.
He's actually been destroyed by Ferrer on HC this year as well in Miami.

Bad matchup and Del Potro not at his best, while Ferrer is having one of his best seasons, as said already...

Let's see in a couple of months. Ferrer will no doubt be burnt out and Del Potro will continue to rise. I predict his return to the top 5 at the very least.

He's been flying under the radar now, everyone seems to be forgetting about him. Truth is, he's having a pretty good comeback.

He will be 25 next year, should be hitting his peak, health-permitting.

lol, every time tennis stops for a few weeks people hype Del Pony, then the tennis starts and pony gets his ass whipped, most recently by the so called "vulture" Ferru, on his worst surface . Del Pony fan's aren't around then to make stupid predictions then.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...
