The tallest tower

Del Potro is 3 of the world and left the Argentine flag well planted at the top of tennis.

Juan Martin Del Potro is the new number 3 in the ATP world ranking, leaving Alexander Zverev in fourth place. The Tower has achieved its best position with this third place, but I wonder is this third place deserved? is there the same competition as before? My opinion is that Juan has more than deserved to be where he is; it is a clear sign of what it is to give up everything for something. Give up everything to be better and better, give everything to leave your country as high as possible. Delpo overcame many adversities in his career as a tennis player, many injuries were those that complicated the Tandilense, who came to be above the number one thousand in the ranking. The Argentinean deserves to be where he is, but it's not the same competition as before as the world tennis competition. The circuit, in my opinion, is not as demanding as it used to be. It is not to discredit, or devalue what Juan Martin did, but it is not the same today as before, where crossing Murray was lethal, where you saw that Djokovic was in your picture and suffered. I don't think he's that picky about names, obviously Zverev is a difficult player, just like Dominic Thiem or Kevin Anderson among others. But those names don't scare as much as the others, for me, because of their lack of experience, because of the youth of some of the players. What we know is that Del Potro is 3 of the world and left the Argentine flag well planted at the top of tennis.
