2013 Rotterdam Final: [2] Juan Martin Del Potro (ARG) V.S. Julien Benneteau (FRA)
 
This will be there first meeting ever.

Del Potro second Rotterdam final. lost to R.Federer in 2012. Amassed 13 titles out of 18 finals including the US Open (D.Federer).

Benneteau 1st Rotterdam Final. Has 0 titles out 7 finals( 4 going the distance).

Hopefully Benny wins his first title....as he is 30+ and may not have many chances left.

Who your pick?

Come on Julien!

Shame this is the final Love Del Po and what he is about but would have been nice to see a competetive final this is likely to be very one sided!

Relinquis 02-16-2013 01:11 PM

As much as I like Del Potro, I really want Julien to win. The guy deserves a title, but he's really going to have to earn it if he wants this to be the one!

Should be a good contrast of styles.

Del Potro in 2.

Talker 02-16-2013 01:22 PM

DelPo in 2.

Richard Krajicek should know that, no matter what the appearance fee is, you can't depend on Federer to reach the final and win the tournament. :-P

Duncan Bell 02-16-2013 01:38 PM

Potro in 2 I fancy. Hoping for a good one.

I'm not sure it's going to be too one-sided, unless JB spent all his tennis taking Roger out (which does tend to happen when people beat Roger or Rafa; they can't keep it up for the next match or tournament to follow).

DelPo is in good form though. I hope he gets it in three.

Yup Zeballos.....

del potro vs julian..

the final everyone wanted to see but was afraid to wish for :-|

I can't see Benneteau winning a set even. He won't be able to handle Del potro's pace of shot.

Towser83 02-16-2013 02:55 PM

Picked delpo from the start but would be happy for benny to win.

Richard also knows how to return from 6 months out and WIN your first event back even if its your worst surface instead of your best :razz:

match about to start...

Relinquis 02-17-2013 04:35 AM

Julien has shaved! Key insight to his mental attitude?

Warmaster 02-17-2013 04:41 AM

I don't mind who wins this one. I like Delpo, but Benny deserves a title.

Having said that, I can't see Delpo losing this, his serve has been outstanding all week.

By the way, neither of them has lost a set yet in the entire tournament, which is impressive especially for Benny.

SLD76 02-17-2013 04:48 AM

If benny returns serve well we could have a match.

merwy 02-17-2013 04:49 AM

Benneteau holds in the first game. He looks a little nervous out there, but it may just be my imagination. Del Potro looks like the better player. Better serve and slightly better groundies.
