At the same time, there are going to be some really fine players that never win a major in this era. Del Potro was lucky he already got his, because he's always a walking injury waiting to happen as good a player as he is. I'm really looking forward to the US Open this year... will be interesting to see if some of the second tier guys can find a way to break through and get to a final.
Actually since Djokavic (and Murray to a slightly lesser extent) joined the other two on top, it seems like the best match is whichever semi has two of those 4 guys in it. By the time the winner of the semifinal gets through, he seems to be primed to be beaten in the final.
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
