World number five Juan Martin Del Potro said he’s aiming to further improve his game in order to defeat higher-ranked players who in most of the matches this year he has nearly beaten in three-set matches.
“For this year, my goal was trying to play in the same level [as] the top guys. I think I beat all of them. I am the only player who beat all of them in this season, which means something for me,” del Potro said. “I think I did a great season. Maybe I [will] finish in the Top 5 after three and a half years. [It] is really good [to] see my ranking and my name in the top positions.”
“They don’t beat me easy, and I beat [them in] some tournaments. All the matches are close, but in the end they still beat me because they have a little difference,” the Argentine said. “Maybe I need to be strong[er] mentally or physically.
“But with my tennis, I think I’m okay. I have still things to improve like my volleys or my approaches to the net. But in the end they make a difference mentally or physically. I will be working hard on that.”
Del Potro posted a 51-16 record this season highlighted with four ATP 500 title wins plus a semifinal run at Wimbledon. He won his first and only Grand Slam singles title so far at the US Open in 2009.Tennisguru.net in partnership with bet365 offer over 40,000 live streamed events per year.
