Del Potro hasn't reached the QF once at Wimbledon.

he hadn't reached QF of us open once at us open before the 09 edition either........he has shown good signs of improvement in movement on grass and has exhibited great willingness to end points at the net too........a little improvement in serve is all that's needed.........

don't be surprised if he wins wimbledon 2013.........you all heard it here first........

folks i still maintain that d-pot---if he can stay healthy---is going to be a terror on hard courts in 2013.
 
watch him snatch 3-5 tournaments on hard courts. i expect him to go deep at the australian open this year.

He reached the QF the year before, and lost a tight match to Murray. I just think there are too many players who can upset Del Potro on grass. It's not impossible he could win, but he would need the perfect draw.

Nadal stands a much better chance, depending on how his recovery goes.

Del Po has a problem staying healthy. If he couldn't stay healthy when he was younger - his body might just break down more now that he's not getting any younger. Just when you think he's about to "dominate"...something happens to him. I think that trend, unfortunately, will keep happening in 2013.

I predict Rios comes out of retirement and wins all 4 slams and then retires again. 
Good Luck on the Court!!!

This is less far fetched than MTF becoming a place to discuss tennis :p

There's so many talented youngsters. Raonic, Sock, Goffin, Dimitrov, Harrison etc. But I think only Raonic has potential to reach Top 10 next year. Goffin and Dimitrov have potential to reach Top 30 next year but Top 10... I don't think so.

Raonic has been improving his ground game slowly.
Had some injuries which is important to note and that slowed down his improvement for awhile.
 
His mental game looks very good and has come back from losing a first set quite a few times.
 
Raonic can improve his serve even more with technique and placement, he has a chance to be rated among the best servers ever.
 
We'll see what's what with him pretty soon.

he will be the same i think.........his serve is alright and the groundgame is nothing special, but his movement is not that great and that is a big liability for a tennis player.........

Raonic is too slow. He might make it to top 10. really love him, Canada needs him but let's be realistic. I watch Nole or Rafa moving like 2 cats (drooling right now  :ice cream:), just amazing. then you watch these 'other' guys who are young and they move like elephants (Milos included) .... good serve can get you so far ... I hope I'm wrong about Milos, but really feel that he will have lot's of ups and downs  ...

tennis is about speed and movement nowadays ...

milos has some movement issues but there are ways to overcome some of that.

He's the same height as Nalbandian and Davydenko, and slightly taller than Ferrer.
