Maybe in 2015-2016 when Djokovic is declining and Nadal is retired, Del Potro wins RG.

The two HC vs Nole this summer are hardly an indication as JMDP was playing with a bad left wrist all summer after the Olympics.

His biggest problem will remain Federer, who is a horrible matchup for him with his variety when he's playing well. Not to mention Delpo can't return Fed's serve for shit, makes Federer look like Isner on serve.
Delpo can only defeat Djokovic on grass where Djokovic defends terribly, Delpo cant hit backhand winners against Djokovic because Djokovic's defense is far too good to allow Delpo's predictable backhand to get past him. I have seen all of their matches and the matchupissue is all there in the open, Delpo is too predictable when attacking Djokovic to cause any problems.

He and Berdych (and Soderling) can only defeat Djokovic on grass. Tsonga can do more damage because of his superior serve.

Murray might be even worse, Murray got that variation to add pressure on Delpo.

Stay healthy, Delpo. A long overdue second Grand slam in 2013 is certainly a possibility.

RG is the hardest to win for anyone but Nadal, no matter who the player is.

If Nadal is even remotely fit, you're lucky to get games against him

I have to disagree here. Just hope you're not using their Cincy and USO matches this year to assess this though; those matches are only proof of the field's lack of depth to even allow Delpo to reach Djokovic in the draw with a bad wrist. His serve and FH were on fire vs Nole in New York but it's not like you can beat a player of Nole's caliber when one of your groundstrokes is so diminished.

One point where I do agree with you is that Delpo's attacking patterns can be very predictable. He has improved his serve massively, which should give him a boost, but I'd like him to work on his net play and follow some of his massive shots at the net, it'd certainly help him against the best defenders in the game to be comfortable at the net. He could have caused Nole even more trouble at the USO if he had followed some of his massive FHs into the net and put them away, definitely an area where he should improve in order to win a Slam.

Sexybeast tells true here, you`ll see in a future that top young guys defence is a bigger issue for Delpo than Fed`s variety. Sadly must admit that Fed isn`t Delpo`s biggest problem in future - so current troubles won`t be that important soon, we won`t disscus it again relatively soon.

I have watched all their matches except their first one in 2007 Usopen and that Davis Cup match where Djokovic retired. I am pretty sure I have read this matchup right, I am basing my evaluation on 6 matches. Another factor is how much better Djokovic and specially Murray puts pressure on Delpo's 2nd serve than Federer.

Del Potro will never win another slam.

He needs conditions to be perfect and to be playing at his absolute best to have any chance of beating Murray or Djokovic in a 5 set match.

In 3 years Delpo will be 27 which is a good year for a ballbasher (like Berdych this year) while Murray and Djoko will be 28 which is a bad age for defensive players.

I wouldnt make absolute predictions like that if I was you, Delpo is the absolute best player under 25 on tour and doesnt have that many miles on his legs.

Wake me up when Del Puto wins a M1000 or at least makes a slam final. For now he's only the MM king who enters weak tournaments.

Nadal still has at least two more good years, and Djokovic and Murray don't share his knee problems. Djokovic is pretty light, so his knees don't have that much of a burden. That sliding and stretches are scary at times, but anyway... Djokovic can play as many years as Nadal, plus some more...

I would put considerable money on it never happening.

He will never beat 2 of the top four back to back. He would need the draw to open up perfectly for him to have any chance whatsoever.

Enjoy watching him, but he's a huge outsider to ever win another GS title.
