    well said man. Delpo was knoking on the door in RG and the olympics. Hopefully this will lead to him being a threat to the top 4, but we'll have to see in the bigger events. Delpo has showed he has the balls to upset the big 4 before, like some of the other guys struggle to, so hopefully 2013 can be a good year for him.

    And yes, del pony is probably in the top 5 most vindictive posters here, off the top of my head I can only think of MariaRafael and someone who wished clarky would comitt suicide as people who are worse.

    Says the person who hates Nadal with a passion. :lol:


    I do agree that Juan Ma Del Pony has almost gone off the deep end completely. Fed isn't that bad. Sheesh.

    Yeah, Delpo is class, that's why Federer always liked him even though he's not that fond of Djokovic/Murray

    yes I am, and I wanted him to win today, but Federer still has a much better career than him, so Del Pony calling him a fraude is so stupid. I like De Potro but if his fans want to be nasty pathetic fools, I will act the same way towards them. But I'm being nasty to them, not delpo.

    Thanks for the compliment. :) I don't like the guy but I don't hate him. I would also never wish injury or death on him. Taking it that far is straight jacket and padded cell behavior. Lol.

    Come on, Towser, brush up on your rock history. We all know the best Who lineup was Sheldon/Wolowitz/Leonard/Raj.

    No, but it's been a while.

    On a different note, not too surprising that Fed pulled out of Paris. Not exactly a welcoming draw anyway.

    yeah I know. There's a difference between not liking someone and calling them crap and saying they are totally useless, which is ridiculous when talking about any of the top 4. All this "The Fraud" stuff makes people look like idiots. Also talking about people's families is pretty low. Unless they deserve it (like Djokovic's parents actually :lol: ) But Mirka? She's lovely. It'slike someone having a go at Nadal's mum or Kim sears.. just pathetic behaivior.

    Lolthis will give me nightmares.

    Yeah I noticed that.Good riddance.

    A wonderful moment for Juan Martin, being polluted by unnecassary venom by a bitter poster.

    yeah true. Forget her, she aint a real fan anyway.Probably only liked him cos of the 2009 US Open final.

    The important thing is Delpo had a very good win,congrats to him, hopefully he'll have alot of confidence going into Paris and the WTF.

    DelPo looked pretty good and it was a nice show of respect between the finalists.

    DelPo's face kind of fits that body, but that wouldnt qualify as model. :lol:

    Federer's face on Delpo's body looks like monkey who got some mutation during process of generation.

    No, he's won Stuttgart on clay and Washington twice. What's missing in his resume is a master. I'm sure that will happen soon.

    Its his biggest title after US open just because he beat player better than him in the Final.

    Those 500 titles he previously won are close to 250 titles just because quality of the field.

    People say that Federer should retire everytime he loses a match these days, but this match obviously means nothing in the grand scheme of things. If Federer starts losing in the 1st and 2nd rounds of GS and MSs events, then he should consider retirement.

    He only won Washington once, in 2009. His other 3 500 titles are: 2008 Stuttgart, 2008 Kitzbuhel and 2012 Basel.

    I'm pretty sure he won Washington in 2008 and 2009 but it was a 250in 2008 so you're both kind of right.

    It's weird. Since 2009, he is obviously one of the best in the world. But then he reamed his wrist and he hasn't lasted all the way in many tourneys.
