    Pivotal match. Whoever wins here will most likely be the 2nd guy out of the group behind Federer.

    Ferrer leads the h2h 6-2. Ferrer won both matches this year. Suprised at the Wimbledon match.....where Ferrer took Delpo to the wheelhouse.

    I say Delpo in 3. I kind of think Ferrer is well capable of beating Delpo but Ferrer has got to be a bit tired now.

    Delpo in 2, maybe 3! Ferrer still celebrates his Paris title and played 10 matches in last two weeks

    Ferrer will probably win, he is a indoors specialist now.

    I just hope delpo plays like he has been and makes david work.

    I said before the event the ideal grouping for Del Potro would be something like what it has actually turned out to be. However with Ferrer coming off the confidence high of his first ever Masters, that might no longer be the case. This is a huge match for both. Neither is likely to beat Federer, especialy Ferrer.

    Ferrer in two..

    I think Roger and Ferrer will make it to the semifinals. If Ferrer loses this much his chances of semi final vanishes as I don't see him beating Roger. del Potro on the other hand even if he loses, he can beat Roger. This is a must win match for Ferrer

    You guys crack me up. Ferrer OWNS Del Pony. Nothing the tower of Tandil can do other than prepare for the straight sets loss.

    Yeah i figured it was pretty much a coinflip, so decent odds for ferrer.
    I like DelPo though so it's really a win win :)

    Ferru is already showing that he is just simply better player

    Del Potro is overrated as hell.

    I have been repeatedly telling people out here a long time,

    Del Potro has no consistent weapons to hurt top players... he is 80% pusher.

    jjermann you make absolutely no sense. How can you call Delpo a pusher? The guy hits beastly forehands all over the court.

    His forehand is overrated... cant create much angles with it.

    His game overall is overrated.

    How can you say he has weapons when he is getting constantly destroyed by Ferrer?

    Players usually outplay Ferrer and he is running everything down... not him beig the attacker. :lol:

    Federer played very bad whole tournament.

    He usually outplays these weaponless guys.

    Federer is not a defensive player, his game matters a lot about timing (especially BH), Delpo's quick strokes makes it hard for Fed to time his shots, causing tons of shanks, don't forget Fed was in ******** mode in Basel then.

    Ferrer is too good a defending, he neutralises Delpo's bombs.

    And the DS won't do good for Delpo, Ferrer had enough from JJ already.

    If you have no weapons you simply cant beat Ferru.

    I meant Ferrer got used to JJ's DS so he should easily get Delpo's DS.

    Del Potro just isn't playing well at the moment. I expect him to play better in the 2nd set and silence his doubters.

    The thing I like is that in WTF I can enjoy the music they play in changeovers. :)

    It'll be funny if Ferrer will lose less games than Federer.

    No he doesnt have any consistent weapon... he can hit few good forehands sometimes, but thats it.
