    Bags is a much better shotmaker, but Delpo has firepower that can overpower anyone. It's hard to see him keeping it up, but we said the same thing at USO.

    Let's hope Del Potro doesn't get injured again, another long term injury and his career as a top player may be over :-?

    This is awful if the big man's wrist has gone again. Please say it ain't so.

    first signs of pain in the wrist - he should quit.

    Otherwise, he is an idiot

    I would much rather have Delpo retire right now than injure his wrist again :(

    Yes, I completely agree. He should not take chances.

    I still can't believe just how hard DelPo can consistently hit the ball. Baghdatis isn't bad either, but the pop off of DelPo's strings scares me a bit.

    Let's hope so.

    There is so much evidence of how players underestimated signs of injuries and then paid the price. I really hope Del Potro stays healthy, because he is so needed in today's tennis.

    DelPo don't be a sucker and get out of there! Even in the unlikely event you win this match, there's still five more 5-set matches to go. This ain't Sparta!

    What's weird is that the commentators were saying that the stats showed Baggy's grounstrokes and serves and returns were actually faster than Delpotro's on average by 9 km/hr in this match :confused:

    I know. Doesn't he remember that he stupidly pushed on in the last AO and missed basically the whole year? Does he really want to do that again?

    We are shooting our mouth off here cause we don't know if and how much it hurts him but seriously, if anything is wrong, get the hell out of there JDMP.

    I've lived in the misconception that Baghdatis is older than 25. What do you know? :)

    1st sign of pain, there's still a chance its minor and will go away. But if you have to call the trainer, its time to pack your bags. (hehe, Bags, see what I did there)
