    Would you rather Federer lose in four or five to Del Potro? Or lose to Tsonga (if he gets by Novak) in the semifinals? Or yet another final loss to Nadal?

    Technically not until he gets to the Final (Nadal?) because he needs to keep the points if he's going to lose. But sure as heck not to Tsonga of all people. I'm tired of seeing that guy dance around like an idiot after winning a match.

    Doesn't matter. He's going to lose to Del Potro.

    From those options I would have to say Nadal since Fed defends his points and improves his GOAT resume by getting to another slam final at almost 31 years old. Plus he proves once again that he is #2 clay courter of this generation if not all time by getting to 6 FO finals.

    Del Potro.....

    Federer has more time to prepare for Wimbledon and Olympic Grass.

    Del Potro or Tsonga. I think Fed can still beat Nadal, but he won't be doing it at the French Open.

    I'd rather him lose to Ferrer, thank you.

    lol, I so wanted to say you were going to eat your words when Fed won today when I read your post earlier, but I didn't want to jinx it. I gotta tell ya, I was a little worried after that 2nd set. Something was off today from the very start... racquet string tension, mad about something, maybe it was too cold... something was causing Roger to no be on at the start. I think he got lucky today with Delpo dying off a it in the 3-5 sets. After the second set, Delpo wasn't playing as hard... I think realistically that allowed Roger to calm down a bit and go back to basics. He was just getting too ticked off initially that things were going his way that he almost let it slip away from him. I'm glad he was able to quiet down a bit and refocus. I think he needs to look at today's experience as something that he needs to learn how to implement against Nadal on clay. It's as if he can't go 100% or even 92%... he needs to be in that 96-98% and then it's just right when playing these type of maches. Anything more or less than that and it falls apart.

    Del Potro is such a talent, but he is mentally mush. Once you get that close to getting over the top, it's such a mountain to climb.

    I thought Del Potro in 5. I got the 5 right, haha. Oh well, it probably keeps me honest to miss on a pick once in a while. Good for Roger.
