He has some puzzling performances at times (see 2013 Aussie Open vs. Chardy). I think Delpo plays too conservatively at times. He moves well for a big man, but not well enough to out-rally the top 4. It seems to me that he's too content to play that way at times. However, he's only 24, and I think it has taken him some time to regain full confidence in that wrist. I don't think we've seen his best yet.
He can play better, at least his endurance is there now and his movement is definitely better.
