Juan Martin del Potro: A One-Slam Wonder in the Making?

February 5, 2010 7:49pm CST
He stunned Federer in US Open 2009 but doesn't keep his momentum with the following tournaments. Even in the Australian Open 2010, he is even considered a contender and has a shot for the title but ousted in the 4th round by Marin Cilic, a newly member in the top 10. What do you think? Is del Potro a one-slam wonder in the making?

I personally feel that Juan Martin is a exceptional tennis player, but the only player that I feel is on Federer's level would be Nadal. Now Nadal is amazing. I believe that Roger Federer is still the greatest male tennis player to this day. The 2009 US open just wasn't his year to win. Hey you can't win em all.

I agree you can't them all, like Federer too. He made to be in the finals at 4 Grand Slam tournaments last year only to lose the chances where he has a good record and considering his opponents is experiencing fatigue than him. Juan Martin may be young enough but chances don't come too easy. So when you had it, you have to grab it.

In my opinion,Juan is a amazing player.In fact he plays like Roger F. We have seen a great tennis on the finals of US Open last year. He is quiet young and so, much tennis is left in him. By the way, Federer era is on and he was injured too. So its hard to predict his future,may be he will become No-1 someday.

My take on Del Potro is that he needs a court that favors his style of game. He will always struggle in the grass of Wimbledon. I think the best two surfaces for him would the French Open Clay and the US Open. So I guess he will be more of a challenge in these two Grand Slams than any other. Also, his style of game is not complete enough to beat players even when he is slightly off color which the likes of Federer and Nadal manage to do on a regular basis. Cheers! Ram
