Yeah, DelPotro can't even take a single set off of that has-been grass court expert Federer on clay (nor any other surface). :oops:

no doubt del potro is nadal biggest fear in RG, he is probably the second best clay player in the pros today
Yea man look at that he has 0 clay court titles has a horrible record against top 10 players, has not made it to a clay court final this year and in the 3 masters has a 2R, QF and SF....man Djokovic and Fed are far inferior to him.

Actually, Del Potro won both Stuttgart and Kitzbuhel last year, both tournaments are on clay.

Nice fantasy world you live in there.
The fact that Nalbandian has spanked Nadal every time they've played (win or lose) say otherwise.

Nalbandian has also gotten to the semis of the French Open twice (including beating Kuerten after Kuerten beat Federer), so he's not exactly a pushover on clay.

He's not as good as Djokovic on clay. Period. Nadal would own him on that surface. Heck even Djokovic owned Nalbandian.

Um...they've never played on clay and I wouldn't call winning 2 out of 3 matches "owning" anyone. If that was the case, then I guess you agree that Nalbandian "owns" Nadal. :oops:

Bumped again. Soderling is very similar to Del Potro and look what happened. LOL and Del Potro is causing havoc right now. My wild future prediction is sort of true.

Congrats. It was very discerning of you to foresee such an improvement.

What havoc? Maybe you should have waited until the end of the match before you bumped this thread.

Anyway it doesn't matter who is a threat to Nadal, that's been irrelevant for nearly a week; it's Federer that people have to worry about now at RG.
Get over it. :)

Why do Fed fans always have to bring up Fed in every thread?

6-1 6-3 6-0. Need I say more? Djokovic gave Nadal his toughest match at last years RG. Del Potro is very young and improving at a very high rate. It's either Djokovic or Del Potro. Fed's best years are past him.
I wouldn't bet against the Fed at Wimby...he will be a loose unburdened man. his health is good, the forehand is back, confidence is back and he has everything to play for again. Anyone who thinks this is Feds last title is just wishing. With all due respect to Rafa he will soon find the physical and mental nature of being the best a real challenge. Fed will certainly end up with 15 slams and 16 isn't that much of a stretch...that means Rafa will need ten more to equal....if he wins 2 per year from here on out that means he has to play another 5 years minimum to catch Fed. Certainly possible but the likely hood of Rafa's knees and left elbow lasting that long is slim.

This thread doesn't appear that wild after the way del potro played in this year's RG, does it ?
