He didn't ENOUGH to beat someone like Rafa is what I mean...
It took a heck of a match from Nadal@R4 Wimb '11 to stop Delpo. If I had to chose one moment, this year, when Nadal looked close to his old-self, that was it. Pity that it was only for one match, and Nadal looked like a pale shadow of that player in the final.

But I digress. My point is that Delpo is a big match player, with the champion like qualities to raise his level in important matches.

Whoever of the big 4 gets him early in UsOpen '11 would surely curse his stars..

Federer is serving out of this world! Magnificent motion, so fluid

These are also fast hard courts which suit Juan a million times more than it will ever suit Nadal
Nadal has improved since then, so their matches won't be as one-sided as 2009. However your point about Nadal on fastercourts is valid.

While Nadal's forehand gets good penetration on slick surfaces, he struggles while returning serves. Given that it the weakest part of his game, any big server has the potential to stretch him, since they get more free points on serve against Nadal than any other top player. This is what we saw from Dodig this year, and Troicki last year.

Beautiful winner. Delpo's first serves deserted him and now Fed will serve for the match.

Yes I did! but what relavence has that got to 2011? Did you see the final of last year's US Open? by your weird theory Rafa therefore has Novak's numbers going into the US Open then.

No anger issues just dont appreciate haters every post you make is just to hate on a player who has more talent in his thumb than you will ever have, pretty sad really.
Well,when you end nearly every sentence with !!!!!!!!!!! it is like you're yelling,and makes you seem angry.

And I will remember that next time you hate on Federer,or any other player for that matter. Hypocrite.

Grrr Delpo, you've become pretty useless is all I have to say. Lol at Delpo being a big threat at USO. Maybe next year. Thank you for playing.

I suspect "this" Fed is the only player Djoker has to worry about in the UsOpen.

If Fed can keep serving like this, with the penetration his forehand gets -- anything is possible.
Even the unthinkable..

Ita about Nadal's ros. I cannot understand why he has failed to fix that problem in all these years. It truly is a huge problem for him.

How am I a hypocrite? I don't support Federer but hes an amazing player and I always give credit where due.

I don't spend every post trying to slam a legend on and off the court, learn the meaning of hypocrite. P R I C K

A bit disappointing from Delpo. There is no way in hell he's winning the USO again in 2011.
