    This is a night match which means I won't be able to watch it.

    It's regrettable, but I'll make a prediction anyhow.

    Delpo in 4.

    I think he'll pull this one off.

    I'll say Delpo in 4 but could be in 5 too.

    2 of my favourite players - and i cant watch it cos im in work when its on. anyway... i think under normal circumstances baghdatis would win given that delpo is just back but, marcos' form has been very poor and delpo has made quicker progress than i expected so i say delpo in 4. hope its a good match

    Del Potro won't win anything that goes longer than 2h30min in this one.

    Baghdatis is off form but he can get this by hanging in there in case his game is off. DelPo's return of serve is significantly worse now than compared to a year ago so expect some long darn sets.

    I noticed that too! I wonder how Murray and Soderling feel about that one? haha. It's cool though, I'm sure it will be a good match. Btw I got your e-mail that you sent during the US Open after it was over.l ol. I replied, but I don't know if you got it!

    Marcos playing pretty well. If DP was back for a while, obviously he's the favorite. However, I'm going with Baggy in 5.

    Man I really want to watch this one. Delpo looked solid against Sela from what I watched but I dunno if he's playing well enough to beat Marcos(dunno how Marcos is playing). I think maybe Delpo in 4 if Marcos is off form as fellow posters are saying.

    I agree. I hope I'm wrong but I think the lack of matches catches up to JMDP unfortunately. And I think Bags will exploit his advantage in movement. Bags in 4. (and sometime later in the yr when he's back on his game JMDP will exact some revenge)

    I'm setting my DVR in case it turns out to be epic.

    Bags in 4. Delpo has not enough match under his belt. But I hope the Argentine will win this match. Good luck Juan Martin!!!

    JMDP in 4 sets, he looked sharp in the first match given the circumstances, Baghdatis can be dangerous in Australia, a former finalist, but JMDP could have faced any seed in first 2 rounds so pretty sure this is one of the seeds he would have signed up for playing!

    It'd be so nice if Delpo could win this, but does he have it in him at this point??

    Del Potro still knows how to hit big shots but needs to improve a lot on his consistency.Makes a lot of errors so far
