Great pic Craig - wonderful win for delPony (or DelPotty as they call him on the BBC boards - hah!)

The thing I really like about Delpo is how he has learned from every match - the learning curve this year for him has been HUGE -

It puts paid IMHO to the talk about Murray's great year. Actually, if you look at Murray his results were better in 2008 in my opinion.And Murray is playing no better now than he was a year ago.

Delpo meets Fed at the AO and got 2 bagels in a 3 set pasting - then he took Fed to 5 at the French - his improvement in play and confidence when you look at January to September is remarkable.

I am happy for him ... and this is great for tennis.

Delpo gave us a stunning performance today. He deserves to be where he is right now and more...
Thank You son!
