    Would be awesome if atleast one of Nole or Murray loses.. For the slow courts, I cant imagine how painful it would be to watch a Nole-Murray finals. God, please spare us.

    No doubt when Novak loses this set, this place will ramble on Delpo being future GOAT.

    And if he doesnt, you'll be moaning how he doesnt care about this match, his serve and his overheads always being bad and his confidence being low and go on about how all the *******s are only showing up now...

    It seems to be that Del Potro can't hit a DTL backhand

    LOL I'm not a ****. I'll just say Novak played somewhat poor and Delpo played well.

    I live in the real world unlike some. 8)

    Who needs a DTL BH when you can push and wait for the error?

    I though djokovic in 3. But looking like Delpo in straight.. if this happens then Murray has a very good chance of the title.

    Anyone but Murray.

    Fed, Djokovic or Delpo must win.

    I don't want some pusher to win the WTF.

    Novak can't win baseline rallies, outplayed by Delpo.

    I think if Del Potro holds here, he should win the match.

    A Djokovic comeback is still very possible, though.

    Novak is playing dreadful, Delpo is doing nothing different when they played at USO.

    Disappointed.

    I like the fact that Delpo seems to start making an impact in the game again. Hope he or Roger takes it all.

    How to beat Delpo:

    Make less UFEs than him.

    Like srs.

    Ferrer only beats Delpo because he doesn't overcommit.

    I'd love to see a Federer-Del Potro final, this way I wouldn't even mind if Fed lost. Djokovic winning the title is OK too, just anyone but Murray, please!

    This is "virtually" Del Potro serving for the match.

    15-40

    make that 30-40

    Ferrer's got a 5-2 H2H against Delpo and is a quality indoors player. All-in-all, not that surprising.

    Everyone hates pushers, except other pushers. That's why Nadal (and Murray now when Nadal's out) is so hated here and rightfully so.

    I know this tennis_pro, it's just funny seeing everyone at the same time posting about it.

    Shows how much hate the guy really has.

    See, Djokovic is out-grinding Delpo and is getting BPs now.

    Just don't overcommit against Delpo and wait for errors.

    Both Murray and Nadal also have the look of "I deserve this match because I put so much effort into it!"

    Except that no-one wants to see a player win because of him running down every ball down.
