    The Delpo Curse holds… unbelievable

    How do you see Stan performing in the other Slams this year, Juan? I think he could do very well at the US Open. He reached semis last year, so perhaps he could repeat that or perhaps even reach the final. And he’s always been very comfortable on clay and he reached the QF last year losing to Rafa I think, so a semifinal there is also up for the taking, I guess.

    Do you see him ending the year in the Top 4?

    Hi Jess
    What do you mean by the Delpo curse? its interesting because I also have my version of the Delpo curse-that the winner of the grand slam would not come out of his half. With him out early this time I thought nadal had a much better chance to win. Delpo has this way of sucking out the win from his competitors so that they are at a significant disadvantage in the susequent matches.
    Fed at the Olympics,Djokovic at Wimbledon. For that matter Delpo was in Djokovic’s half of the draw in the US Open although they never played.

      The Delpo curse is very well-known. And yes, my version is same as yours through one player from Delpo’s can still win the whole thing–Delpo himself.
      And the curse works with/without Delpo alive in the draw, he only need to ‘be’ in the draw.

      Everyone thought the curse gotta be broken this year… kudos to Stan

    Had a feeling as Stan continued to move through the field that he would have a real shot to beat Nadal under any circumstances and that turned out to be the case. Even before Nadal’s back began to act up, Stan was the aggressor and the better player.

    Already, 2014 was shaping up to be interesting on the men’s side and having Stan playing at such a high level only adds another layer of intrigue.
