World number 26 Gilles Simon could miss the French Open after announcing he will be out for a month with a knee injury.

You're not right yet. He's injured, he didn't retire. And he's only 21 years-old.

This sucks. Here we have a guy who is ready to do some serious damage on clay. I believe he could take out anybody, including Nadal on the dirt.

Instead we'll get a coming-back-from-injury version. Let's hope he's fully ready for Roland Garros.

what in the world makes you believe that Del Potro would just walk through nadal on a claycourt? I admit he would stand a good chance of winning against rafa, but rafa could also win.

Anyway i was hoping Del Potro would play in Monte Carlo. I hope he comes back for the french open.

Are you paranoid? I never said it would be easy for Del Potro, and didn't even say he would win. But he would be a very dangerous and extremely confident opponent for Nadal.

Nadal's low on confidence, his season can be make-or-break in Monte Carlo, therefore it's good news for Nadal that the most dangerous opponent isn't there.

Look how idiotic you are. He got injured in the arm like 2 month after winning the us open. After that he tried to play with bandage but he started to feel more and more pain and since the australian open where he played injured he didn't play anymore and he's waiting for his injury to heal.
It's not like djokovic who had tons of opportunities to reach a slam final again and he didn't.

To everyone that says "oh another injury" or stuff like that. It's the same injury since months ago.. the arm and his hand. The right hand/wrist/arm to be precise. He feels pain when he plays so as a rational person he wants to heal 100% before he tries to play again. I think he will stay out as long as his money allows him until he is fully recovered.

well considering that Soderling, another tall big hitter, took nadal out fairly easily last year, and also considering del potro took federer to 5 sets last year, given Nadal's normal advantages over righties, Del Potro would negate most of these with his steady play. plus, that forehand.

When did this "Delpo is great on clay" myth start? Yes, he's good; yes, last year he made the semis of FO; but Federer and Djokovic are better than him. That is, if they come back to form.

IMO, Delpo's absence is more of a relief for rest of the hard court players, since there's where he plays his best.

Li Ching Yuen
04-07-2010, 07:27 AM
He is so not coming back after so much time off and start posing threats to the other top players.

He is the kind of player that has long streaks of consistent great results.

For example the 4 American tournaments he won in a row a couple of years ago or the hard court part of the season leading to the YEC run.

He is too tall to dominate or win more than 2 slams. The giants like him never win more than 2 slams tops. Safin, Ivanisevic, Stich, Krajicek, Smith, etc. And are very injury prone.

No need to check the manual. I told you long ago that Federer is the anti-Christ, that he has made a deal with the devil. http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=155414&highlight=satanThis is just more proof of it.

Beat Federer at a slam final and you will have to retire by age 24. It's right there in Federer's contract with the Prince of Darkness, Clause VI, sub-part 8.

Which means Murray will never retire. :)

If Del Potro was in his summer 2009 form this would make sense. Del Potro right now though this is ridiculous logic. If Del Potro were playing he would be just starting to try and get himself back in form and fitness, which he is a long ways from now. He is clearly in no state to be a big threat to any favored player right now.

Yes, Chang also had his whole career ahead of him after his win at French open 89... and look how it turned out.

Del Potro is just a mindless ball basher, nothing more. His wrist will always have problems because of all the bashing that he does, and if he changes his game to adopt something new, something more versatile, it won't work well as this is what he has been doing all his life.

I know it is just 2010 but seeing how badly he has declined since winning US open, and the number of injuries, withdrawals he has had since then, it is pretty evident he won't be able to get back to his peak level ever again. Therefore he will never win a slam title again.
