This has been quiet a year for the 21-year-old Argentine, and an upset isn’t completely out of the question. After all, Del Potro has already beaten the world’s two best players (Federer in the finals and Nadal in the semis of the 2009 US Open) on his way to his first career Grand Slam earlier this year in New York.
It seems like one of the only top players missing from Del Potro’s list is Murray, who failed to win a Grand Slam this year. “I am surprised, yeah, a little bit. I’m sure that it was one of his goals for this year,” said Del Potro. “For me I was thinking more next year or 2011 so for me it came early. But Murray is a great player and he will have 20,000 people cheering for him on Sunday so it’s going to be tough.”
But if you thought that Murray was just going to show up and lay down, well, you’re in for a surprise. The proud Scot holds the 2009 ATP World Tour Finals in high regards, as it turns out. “This tournament is just behind the grand slams because you have to win five matches, or four matches, against the top players in the world,” Murray told reporters.
“You might even have to beat the number one or number two in the world twice to win the event so it’s not quite the same as a grand slam but it’s a huge, huge tournament.”
