The pair have met three times, going in Delpo's favour 2-1. It's not many in terms of meetings but check out the scorelines in all of their matches (including US Open 2008 going the distance and Wimbledon 2011)...

Wimbledon 2011 - Winner: Del Potro
7-6(8.) 7-6(5) 7-5

US Open 2008 - Winner: Del Potro
6-4, 6-7(4), 6-1, 3-6, 6-3

New Haven 2007 - Winner: Simon
7-6(3), 6-7(5), 7-5

Del Potro can destroy Nadal 6-2 6-2 6-2 at the US Open yet struggles against Simon, the 'weedy' version of Murray. What is it about his game that troubles him?

Tennis is all about match-ups. I think it is because Simon likes pace.

Simon is Djokovic-lite. Simon can still beat Murray.
