Del Potro says Top Three are Miles Ahead

With the Australian Open, the first Grand Slam of the year all set to begin in a fortnight’s time, Argentine tennis player Juan Martin Del Potro believes that the top ranked three players in the world, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer are too far ahead of the trailing pack and it would only take a miracle to stop any one of the three from winning the Grand Slam events this year.

The 23 year old Argentine is the only player in the last four years other than Djokovic, Nadal and Federer to have won a Grand Slam title when he won the 2009 US Open defeating the Swiss Maestro Roger Federer in the final, thereby becoming the tallest ever Grand Slam champion. As a result, he believes that he knows what it takes to overcome the monopoly of the trio and having done that, the others will also try and do what he did. According to Juan Martin Del Potro, only the likes of David Ferrer, Andy Murray and one or two others have the capacity to overcome the three top ranked players and as a result, the playing field isn’t very level at all, as far as the Argentine is concerned.

However, Del Potro is still confident ahead of the start of the season that there will be cracks in the armor of all the three top players and when that does happen, the trailing pack will be waiting to pounce on them and he hopes that luck is on his side once again.

Juan Martin Del Potro has been looking forward to the Australian Open for quite some time and the world number 11 is hopeful of a repeat performance of the 2009 US Open and wins his second Grand Slam title in the city of Melbourne.
