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.
Never said she wasn't. But lets try not make those victorys seem better than they are. They were great victories for Laura, but it wasn't like Na was on top form, or Kvitova for that matter. Li was in her error mode, and Kvitova had been poor for a while. Clijsters was a really good win for her, but she was retiring. I wasn't trying to make Robson seem bad at all, i was just using it as an example of hype.

BTW, she just lost in Dubai if you are interested.

And i think saying that Del Potro hasn't played anyone is a bit disrespectful to the players he faced. It's not Del Potro's fault that the top 20 players in the draw didn't make it as far as him. It's not Del Potro's fault that Federer, Tsonga, Gasquet went out before playing him. He beat everyone in front of him in straight sets, and there were some good players he faced. He faced an in form Gulbis, and in form Dimitrov, a good player in Nieminen and Benneteau who beat Federer and Gasquet just before that. Also, i did mention that we are not basing it off one tournament. Apart from the Chardy match Del Potro has been playing very well over the past half a year or so.

I think Juan might get to a final though. There is a lot of factors concernin Roland Garros with Nadal, so i think that one is hard to predict. Wouldn't suprise me though if Djokovic does win them all.

I know yeah but she's still only just turned 19. These results are bound to happen. How many other players outside the top 10 have beaten three of those inside it in consecutive slams? Let alone under 19.

It's not Del Po's fault but it's not his a lot of people are expecting him so much of him just after he's won a pretty meaningless tournaments as far as they go. His form might be okay but you can't read anything in to Rotterdam. He's not threatened winning a Grand Slam since his return but people are expecting him to do so.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

There's a difference in hyping up an 18 year old who's knocking off top 10 players at Slams and Del Potro beating Benneteau.

Robson match earlier was really fun. Too inconsistent on her part though. at the girl she was playing. Jesus. She played some really good tennis too tbf. Definitely not easy on the eyes though. Sucks to lose a tie-break after coming back from a double break at 5-2 down in the 3rd. Easy to forget she only turned 19 last month.

He won't win the French, I think that one is the most open out of all the slams

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Djokovic will beast the French if Nadal isn't 100%. Hell, even if Nadal is 100% it might be a demolition.

Yeah we are hyping Del Potro just because he won one tournament and not because of how well he has been playing over the past few months and of his recent achievements.


As for Djokovic winning all 4 slams this year, I would be extremely surprised if that happens. Hell I would even be surprised if he wins RG. Lets not get carried away here, sure Djokovic is on top form atm but to win all slams this year? nah. We are not even sure if he can keep up this great form for the rest of the year. To win 4 granslams in a year is something really tough to do, only Rod laver and Don Budge we are able to pull that off.

Federer couldn't do it, Nadal couldn't, many other players who are better than Djokovic couldn't do it. What makes you think Djokovic can pull it off? Only 2 PLAYERS in the history of TENNIS were able to do that.

2 slams? probably. 3 slams? maybe but 4 slams? nah.
