Well, Del Potro is a giant so it's no wonder he hits the ball harder. If you don't allow him that, what is he left with? Does he have a plan B or C? Just fine tuning your game won't cut it because it's not going to work all the time or the majority of the time. But it all depends on what you expect from him I suppose. If you take away that Slam of his, he's not left with much. He's overall career so far is not as shining.
 
Del Potro is like your action movie where you get instant results, instant satisfaction. Your money, you think, is well spent. I can see why a lot of the guys dig him. If you give them a classic like Memento, I guess half of the same audience would fall asleep.

Don't worry about the tower of Tandil, he'll work it out.
I'd concentrate on Murray for now, you have your hands full there.  :)~

Maybe Alex can help Nadal adjust his underwear.  :rofl_2:

why dont we just  adjust your underwear first emma darling.
 
 i dont think clay warrior has any problems taking care of himself.
 
roddick`s habit of scratching himself in the front is a lot worse habit. its like he has a chronic case of vicious crabs.

stop the cheap comments. Lets concentrate on the topic on hand. I think DelPo has a long way to go before he gets back to his prime. I always feel that clay is the best place not only for Rafa but players (Not named Andy) to get their shots right. Hard courts are harsh....that said, I also think that DPot may garner his titles(1 or 2) only on the hard courts.

Lay off the cheap talk, herc and bring on the hard liquor. oh, that reminds, am getting drunk tonight!!!!

Oh how I wish those Fedtards were at my party tonight. I could have had so much more fun - especially with Medwatt and FFF. I would have asked them innocently so, 'so how does the math go again? you say 16 is greater than 0? I swear I wasn't aware of it'. and I am sure they would have been very keen on explaining it and that would have had me on the floor. I kid u not.

One thing I do like about Delpo is that he doesn't lose matches before stepping on to the court. He is not afraid to go out and play irrespective of the opponent. If he can get his game to the top level, he will be tough to beat.

mentally he is tough as nails.
 
he has or is blessed with what i call massive testicular fortitude. some players are just not able to perform in the clutch.
 
he is one who thrives on it.

i think he could do it. he just has to keep building on his game.
 
i saw some very positive things from him in davis cup in spain.
 
he really wants to win for one thing. movement is not optimal but he can overcome some of that if he is the one distating the points.
 
the serve needs to improve and i think it will.

I agree.

In 2011, Del Po reached 2nd round at AO, 3rd round at FO, 4th round at Wimbledon and 3rd round at the US Open.

with good performances during slams this year, he can gain a lot of points.

del potro's only concern is the serve at the moment.......he's definitely in the mix for AO.......
