    Delpo sharing his concern with the ump.

    The crowd is trying to put him off by talking during his serve.

    Why they hating on Delpo...the damm guy came back from an injury! Delpo getting further in the draw is good news for tennis media...even though he would lost to a top 20 player right now!

    Probably not so much hating Delpo as blind loyalty to Sela.

    Sela is playing smart tennis.

    Slicing the ball and keeping it low.

    Forces Delpo into error.

    If only Fed had done this more often at that USO final instead of trying to overpower him....

    I can't figure out if Delpo looks slow/sluggish or if that's always been his demeanor.

    Very true. You aren't going to overpower Delpo.

    That's always been his trademark deadpan look.

    It rather suits him, I think.

    He took him to town earlier that year with a double bagel.

    So...anyone know, or care to speculate why Delpo is hitting with is Kfactor PJ? Didn't he have the new BLX PJ last year at the AO?

    I think Delpo's serve is going to the difference in this match

    Yeah, but I don't think it is just his demeanor. He is looking a bit slower than before. Maybe he's not match fit quite yet.

    I just hope this doesn't go to a fifth advantage set ... that would no doubt be the end of Del
