    Delpo with great depth in his shots, continues on his good form of yesterday. He has only lost 1 indoor match this year (Rotterdam final against.....Federer)

    Delpo's running FH hasn't looked this good since USO 09, so much power behind it.

    80 % of first serves in for Del Potro? You just can't serve like that

    Fed looks alright serving if you ask me (I didn't watch the game where he got broken). Maybe he can win this in 3 with 2 TBs?

    The good news for Federer is that Del Potro won't play better than that. It's just a matter of keeping it up.

    Is this the same guy who almost lost to Kevin Anderson? Alot of luck from Delpo early on. Just swinging as hard as he can on every shot and hoping it stays on the court.

    Delpo played almost perfect tennis and is 1 set up . Well deserved too...since Roger was not bad himself either.
