    I told you 1 hour ago. Del Potro wins. What more do you need to know? Winning lottery numbers?

    LOL! :)

    I want Polito to win, but FeVer knows how to return his serve, and make him run (FeVer is the better mover still, though I know Polito has been working hard on that in the off-season), and he knows how to grind, and I'm concerned about Polito's stamina.

    Once more I must quote Rafa: "We will see what will happen, no?"

    Dale Polito!!

    Verdasco in two. Don't want Del Potro to win and gain confidence. I hope the overrated one loses.

    The fractured foot may have just been a false alarm. False reporting.

    I don't think Fer would play had it been true.

    Unfortunately Delpos not in top form quit yet, and because of that Fernando Verdaschoke will pull out a win.

    Verdaschoke in 3.

    Del Potro gaining confidence gradually and getting his powerful game back to where it was in late 2009 could mean he would very likely win his second USO this year just like we saw Nole win his second AO this year.

    Take no notice of him, he is just jealous Del potro had a GS and Murray does not and will never have one.

    I believe in Delpo, too! :D

    One of his biggest weapons is that tennis brain between his ears.

    Same can't be said for his opponent tonight
    BUT
    Dasco is in rather good shape physically, maybe better than Delpo is atm

    however, I pick brains over beauty tonight ... maybe even in 2

    He just doesn't seem to have his legs (JMDP); not that he ever was spry. But I'm pulling for him & can't wait for this test.

    Verdasco cruising from the start as expected. If he could get through Istomin, this should be easy. Starts with a break. Better finish this quick and save his energy for Raonic - he'll need it.

    Great to see Verdasco break Delpo with relative ease. Hope he doesn't choke. I want to see some schooling today.

    Verdasco is playing decent but that is more than enought to beat the ball basher.
