Nadal leads the H2H 8-5. Should be a great match if del Potro is ok physically.
Yesterday you said that Thiem is a mug for going to Del Po's forehand, Roger wont do the same mistake !Nadal in 4 but wouldn't shock me in 3. He won't use roger's tactics I tell you that much
You know, I really like Delpo. He's such a warrior who's been through so much **** throughout his carrer. I loved the way he beat Djoko in the Olympics and I loved the way he beat Thiem on Monday.
You know, I'm even willing to forgive him for taking my personal idol down tonight. That's cool.
BUT IF HE ****ING LOSES TO RAFA IN STRAIGHT ROUTINE SETS, I'M GONNA HATE HIM SO ****ING MUCH TIL THE END OF TIMES.
Agree that Nadal is a big favorite. But I think Delpo will actually have a better chance than Fed.Can't really see Delpo winning this. Yeah he served and hit really well against Roger, but let's get real Roger blew so many easy balls on critical points. That tiebreaker??? I mean LOL. Guy has 3 sets points can't get one good serve in. Then next set serves 4 consecutive near aces. I mean, you can't make this stuff up. So Delpo won, credit, but Roger was just awful. Nadal should take it 3 or 4.
I just don't get Roger's tactics of continually going to the FH and on top of that missing ridiculously easy put aways on set points. I mean when does Roger miss an overhead? Fcking BS. So frustrating. Yeah, yeah I know he won 2 slams, I'm of course very happy about that, but when you lose, don't lose missing a floater for godsakes.Agree that Nadal is a big favorite.

Delpo is playing inspired tennis right now. He's going to put it all out on the line. I just wish he had his 2009 BH.
I love your optimism. But let's not underestimate the importance of a rock-solid BH for anyone facing a Nadalian onslaught! Delpo used to have that in 2009 in large measure but now is an old-lady slice machine!I don't think Delpo can win by as much as he did the last time they met in the USO semi, but Delpo will win for sure. What a time to be alive
I really like Delpo, and have been fortunate enough to watch him win a tournament. He is spectacular. That said, his backhand is beyond weak, unless he is fooling everyone.I took Delpo in 4. His form usually gets better.
He's had a cold, his nose was still red tonight so he's probably about over it.
I expect him to be in top shape at match time, he loves the crowd and has plenty of fans, that pushes him to his top level.
Nadal better be careful, he has a bomb ready to go off.
Fed may have been worse tonight than he was against Youzhny. He looked like a 3.0 on some of his shots.I just don't get Roger's tactics of continually going to the FH and on top of that missing ridiculously easy put aways on set points.
