I'm glad to see Del Potro and Azarenka win. That's great

Agree. I'm a fan of Del Potro and feel as though this will be a big year for him.

I feel Del Potro will have a deep run in a slam this year. RG or the USO.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

He could also do some damage at RG. Del Po is a good clay courter and should have reached the semis last year really, but choked big time against Federer

Interested to see him on grass this year. If was his weakest surface by far, but he showed improvements at the olympics. Thats a good thing about Juan is that he goes away and improves areas in his game that need improving. Like last year he improved his serve, and in Rotterdam it looked like he improved his movement.

I agree and I wouldn't be surprised if he reaches the final but I don't think he will unless he has Murray in his draw.

Nah, he didn't really choked, he was injured. You could see that his knee was hurting him during the match. Not only that, Federer upped his game in the last 3 sets.

I am also very interested to see him in grass as well. He has shown that he can also play very well in grass in the Olympics when he pushed Federer to the limits and beat Djokovic in straights sets.
With that being said, I can't see him going further than the quarters in Wimbledon this year.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

RG is the toughest to predict in terms of who makes quarters and whatnot. Obviously Rafa will be most people's favourite to win it if he stays healthy.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Del Po wins one tournament without playing anyone special and the hype goes into overdrive. As much as I like him and hope he can win a slam, he majorly underachieved at the Australian Open. He has the ability but don't get carried away folks after this small tournament. Let's see how he does at the 1000 Masters events where Murray, Novak & Rafa will be playing.

He ran into an on fire Chardy at the Australian Open. Chardy had one of those days, and not many can beat him on that form. Del Po also doesn't like AO conditions, so nobody really expected a deep run from him there.

And we are not basing it on one tournament. Del Potro has gradually been getting back to the level he showed in 2009 when he won the US Open. It's just great as a fan of his to see him get back to form after his injury struggles. He finished 3rd in the Olympics, and won a lot of tournaments towards the bakc end of last year, beating Federer twice in a row indoors.

Robson beat a retiring Clijsters, and an off key Li Na and her hype went way high and she hasn't done anything close to Del Potro has. Del Po just has plenty of fans who are excited to see him doing well, thats all. And it's not like we are expecting him to dominate the tour, we just think he can have a deep slam run, which he can.

Robson was superb in those games and also beat Kvitova at the age of 18. How many other players her age have managed that, knocking off top 10 players in back-to-back slams? It was impressive and it's not like anyone's expecting her to get to grand slam finals anytime soon.

Del Po's not played anyone this week and there's people getting carried away. All I'm saying is don't expect too much of him because you might just be disappointed.
