I think Del Potro might win AO or Roland Garros next season with his good form of late. we all know Del Potro's got the game, he's proved that in the past, but what's different now is his brain is getting better. a few different points at the US Open and he might've had a shot against Djokovic, just beat Fed (despite fed playing poorly), and we know he can knock Murray/Nadal off the court when in great form. he might pull a slam, at the very last a master

He has more chances to beat Fed (he should have won in 2012 in three easy sets but he chocked badly) Mugray is a complete mug on clay and is "winnable" for Del Potro there. Even when Novak reached the final this year in RG, clay is not his favourite surface. Del Potro already got a semi-final in RG (and should have reached it this year).

Hard might be the best surface for DelPo but clay is his natural place and where the top guns are not so powerful as they are in Hard.
Del Potro is not beating Djokovic at RG anytime soon. RG is not played on grass but on clay where Djokovic is the best on tour after Nadal. Take Nadal out of the equation and Djokovic is the favorite at RG.

Can't see Del Potro beating Djokovic on slow HC or clay.

We'll see.

Be interesting to see if he tanks Paris now, or if he fights on and secures a first TMS title to add to his resume.

It's still going to be tough for him to win another slam as he will have to beat at least two top guys, possibly three while he's ranked 5 or lower. If he pinched the 4 spot off Nadal, things would look a lot easier for him.

Murray is a really bad matchup for Del Potro. Having to beat Nolandy to win a slam will be hard.

I could see him being a contender at the US Open, more so now Super Saturday and Sunday final are being jibbed so he won't have to play back to back.

Murray is a bad match up only if he is in perfect physical shape. If Delboy can get that serve working, Murray is not going to be that tough.

Del should hit huge forehands to Murray's Forehand side (if they play).

USO is Del Potro's best chance. At the other 3 slams it will be very hard.

When they played at the WTF in 2009, it wasn't all that obvious that Murray had him in his pocket. That was on a slow court where Murray should also be favourite.

He needs to beat Ferrer before talking about beating Murray.

Del Potro's worst enemy won't be any player, but his own body. He has all the tools to win a Slam and a be a contender or #1.

His serve is far better now than it was in 2009, it's actually a weapon that can carry him through matches and he's becoming more and more comfortable at the net. All he needs is a prolonged run of good health and he should be an even bigger beast than in late 2009, able to beat any player anywhere and compete for any title (maybe bar on grass).

There's some aspects of his game that could still use some improvement, like his fitness, ROS, net game (neither of them are big liabilities but have margin for improvement), hope he works on that during the off season to be ready to make a push in 2013.

It's not hyping. It's realistic. If Delpo played the Nole of the final, he'd have a chance at a second USO that Monday.

Del Potro is one of the best wind players, as is Federer. If either of them had won their QFs, they'd in all likelihood be the current USO champions since Murray, Djokovic and Berdych are very poor wind players.
