2010 Could Be the Year of Del Potro

Juan Martin Del Potro showed at the U.S. Open that he's capable of beating the best players at the biggest stages. In 2010, I think he will emerge as one of the main players to beat.

Del Potro has all the weapons - the big groundies, the huge serve - to beat anyone in the world at any time. His mental toughness has all vastly improved.

The biggest question for 2010 will be how will he handle the pressure of being a grand slam champion?

Roger Federer is still the greatest of all time and Rafael Nadal still has a lot lefty in his game. However, I think Del Potro will emerge this year as the biggest threat to the two of them at the top. I think Del Potro will win at least one slam this year and will be in the top 3 by the end of the year.

If Del Potro continues his rise to the top it will make the men's game even more interesting. I think of all the younger guys out there Del Potro might be the one who will shine the brightest.
