    I for one honestly don't see Fed getting through Nadal or Delpo for that matter. But I would gladly be wrong.

    Do the players like these entrances? Neither seems too enthused.

    If RFederer wins, it'll be in 2 tough sets and if it goes to the deciding set, the Argentine will win it. So, as a die hard fan, I have voted RFederer in 2.

    I felt sorry for them because it's awful. Then you think about the appearance fee and suddenly I don't feel so sorry. It is crap though, who is it for? Do tennis fans need that?

    Game faces are on, both players are playing to get to the semi. Its hard to enjoy the intro atmosphere when you've got your game plan in mind. 100% focused and shows both players are in this to win it.

    I am cheering for Delpo. I don't want Fed to face Rafa and lose to him for the first time indoors. Delpo in 2.

    Fed, Please learn the art of tanking from Rafa.

    You are right, why does he do that with his hair? Bless him.

    Thursday was good, quality was iffy but I'm not complaining. I saw Gasquet practicing as soon as I got there <3 Unfortunately, he still doen't know I exist. Then Rafa came to the practice court. I stood next to this really cute little boy who loves Novak and was annoyed that Rafa took the number one spot, but he still liked Nadal. Had these annoying women stand behind me who referred to Andrew Castle as 'Andy' Castle. It was good, wish I could go back.

    To me, it looked slow compared to previous years, and my friend agreed with me. But it was also clear that Roger was a step slower.

    Bad signs already for Federer, the shank is predictable but that FH error at 30-0 down off an EASY ball should of been punished or at the very least, should of made it over the net. Step it up Roger or Delpo is going to destroy you.

    Fed has never been ahead in the first set against Delpo on this court. But regardless he had a bp to get back. Just can't convert. EVER.

    You are doing good Fed. Now just keep holding your game and win some points in Delpo's service game just to show you are making some effort :)

    It really annoys me these people who continue to use flash photography when they're told not to. Just, like, turn the flash off...stupid people.

    I'm not sure why Henman is so surprised about Federer's UE's, I thought this was par for the course these days.

    He's angry about those UE's not coming when they played each other.

    Djokovic was right when he told the press how Federer's movement isnt as good as it used to be, Young Federer would of been onto those balls 100% quicker and after that awful attempted dropper... You almost want Delpo to punish him here.

    6-1 / 6-2 ? Another amazing showing from Roger. Keep it up man, you can probably beat the record for the most UE in a match.....

    Roger looked nervous to me at the entrance itself. And it's showing. I honestly don't mind because IMO he needs another proper training block before he can regain confidence and that can only happen once he's on a holiday.

    Delpo will win 6-2, 6-4. He will have enough in the tank to give a fight in the semis I think.
