    Mine is dandy, could be your internet connection.

    The fact that he was able to defeat the new 2011 Istomin in straight sets speaks volumes of the new and improved Verdasco. I think he could challenge the Chernogorian in the final.

    Delpo is a mystery. You never know if he is listless and dragging his feet or conserving his energy and waiting to strike.

    This is a time we can expect Verdasco to choke. Hopefully it doesn't happen this time.

    4 aces for Juan, 1 for Nando

    Juan slow outta the blocks, saw him hitting his right leg with the racquet ... hope he's playing himself into it

    vamos to break now, Delpo!!!

    Perfect! Verdasco is just too good for a player like Del Potro. He just needs to play his current level and he is in the final.

    What do you think Verdasco will need to do differently or better in order to challenge Raonic in the final?

    Not so sure. Beating Del Potro is one thing (just give him more balls to play and we can expect Del Potro to hit the net, stands, umpires, etc) but beating Raonic is a whole different proposition.

    jjermann, is there anything wrong in wanting Verdasco to win? I would love to see him win and Del Potro lose. Why is that wrong?

    Are your riding a wagon on the oregon trail?

    Raonic is turning out to be pretty good, but he's got his work cut out for him from the stamina physical master that is Verdasco.
    All those spaniards have inhuman stamina. Makes you wonder...

    Man..Delpo is HITTING BIG.

    You get the feeling that once he improves - he's gonna be unbeatable. He'll blow anyone of the court..

    Unbelievable Power..

    Verdasco is a mental midget. Delpo could win this in three. Which is a shame. Coz it means that even a 70% delpo >>> Verdasco..

    The Istomin match drained him and now he is regressing to the pre-2011 Verdasco.

    This match is insane.


    Even Verdasco looks vintage, as strange as that sounds.
