Delpo has won the last two meetings, but obviously it's been a while. It's hard seeing your two favorites so close to each other in the draw.
 
Promises to either be a very high quality match or a complete train wreck of a match filled with errors and shanks. My gut says the latter.

Del Po in 3 sets.

Federer in 2.

Del Potro has looked off colour this summer. It seems like he has taken a step backwards since Wimbledon. Federer looked good against Tsonga, so he should win.

If Del Potro was picking up from where he left off at wimbledon, I'd pickk him.

But I have to say Federer will win this, but I'm gonna say in 3 sets, he'll put in a bad game and get broken or he'll lose a tiebreak.

I can't see Fed going out this early, not in Cincy. But I can see Del Potro doing it. I'm not convinced he's "back." 'Hope I'm still right tomorrow night, as I'd love to see Fed advance.

JMDP hopefully. Look what happened in Montreal, Federer played a big hitter and got chrushed 6-1 in the 3rd.

(Whatever happens please DO NOT lose it completely and get bageled a la AO 2009 :(
Think about USO instead...)

Delpo is going to wear out / wear down Federer if he keeps playing like this. Federer can't afford to get into 10+ stroke rallies with Delpo.

Fed on FIRE! 4 aces in 2 games. Lots of service winners and sweet overhead backhand volley.

If Fed can keep this form up, he has a good shot of winning the UsOpen by beating Djoker..

Federer leads 2-1 on serve..

Relax man! he is playing great but this is just 3 games in to the 2nd round of Cincy bit early to be talking about taking out Novak in New York!!

True. That said, it is my belief that only Fed or Delpo have sufficient tennis quality at this time to stop Djokovic.. Can't see it from Muzz/Nadal or anyone else..

You may well have a point! I dont see Murray doing it! in fact I can see Murray going out early, Nadal can but not on this surface (saying that as a Nadal fan although hope I proved wrong)

I look away for 30 seconds and the next game is already at 15-0. I'm so used to being able to take naps in between other player's points.

Everyone posting in the General thread. I was wondering why it was so quiet in here.
