Really looking forward to this match. Delpo in 4.
Federer in 3.
Though I can see Del Potro winning because he is playing like it is RG09!
Delpo in 4? hahahaha.
Federer variety will smash Del Potro. Federer ain't Thomas "I can't make an injuried player run around the court" Berdych.
I'd say Federer in 3, but everyone knows that Fed will meltdown in the middle of one set but then will "magically" come back.
Fed in 4. Seems to be a good match up for Roger, but then again he has looked sloppy at times over the last week.
Fed is not playing good at all, he is making mahut and goffin look good.
Fed in 4. Almost always gets past Del Potro (US Open apart). Slightly pointless either of them turning up with Nadal in the form he is in.
Delpo is probably the best player Fed needs to get his rhythm right, I'm glad it isn't another nobody coming up. Fed's been playing unseeded players whom he's never played before, even in the interview Fed said that due to the conditions in Madrid, Rome, etc, and the fact that he doesn't know how the new guys play, he was unable to get rhythm. If Fed gets past this one he should be ready for Djoker/Tsonga. (I'm saying Tsonga is a possibility due to the crap Djoko displayed against Seppi)
I'm saying Fed in 3, maybe 4 if Fed starts sluggish. But when Fed gets a set he would get momentum and finish it off.
Said a guy who uses a Del Potro pick as his avatar.
This one's hard to pick. Both aren't playing to their capabilities
Del Potro can win assuming he is playing well and Fed displays the same chite as previous rounds.
On paper Fed is the favourite because he owns Del Potro, but that was true for USO 2009 as well. You never know
I honestly doubt that Delpo will cause any Harm to Roger's game. He may take one (only one) set, but nothing more than that.
This was one of matchups that I was looking forward to!
This is a main event match, and for me the hottest match of the quarters. Love Roger, but if the big man can strike, and I will be very happy for him. He's due another big run in a slam, and I can't help but remember the war these two had in 09.
Hoping for a classic!
Saying DelPo in 4. I think this is his time, to get to the Semis at least.
Fed in 4. Berdych would have been a tougher match.
Fed in 4. Despite his two losses to Del Potro in 2009 Federer is a terrible matchup for the Argentine. Del Potro might win the first or second but I see Federer having 2 or 3 tough sets and then dish out a bit of a mauling in the 4th.
How many times have they met this year?!
2012 ATP World Tour Masters 1000 Indian Wells QF
Federer, Roger 6-3, 6-2
2012 Dubai SF
Federer, Roger 7-6(5), 7-6(6)
2012 Rotterdam F
Federer, Roger 6-1, 6-4
2012 Australian Open QF
Federer, Roger 6-4, 6-3, 6-2
Looks like Fed has Delpo figured out again
See you in the semis Fed.
Don;t think this will be as easy as many think. Delpo could very well pull this out. Fed has not been in great form.
Really depends on which Federer shows up.
A good point to remember: Del Potro was up 6-0 in the second breaker against Federer in Dubai.
I think Del Potro will win this match - Fed is almost ready for the rocking chair.
I'm going w/you on this ... yes, I know roger's side-to-side tactic against Delpo has been effective this year ... but rog hasnt been playing his best this week, and juan's been hitting bullets, so he's got a chance ... after all, if Gofin could take a set and a half from the swiss man, then certainly the argentine can take three!!!
All depend on Fed, he is messing around too much recently.
Delpo in 4 sets: 7-6 6-4 3-6 6-2
ROFL! at those saying Delpo in 4. Unless Delpo finds his 2009 USO form plus a bit more, Federer will make quick work of him in 3 or 4 sets.
Delpo is not moving well because of his knee to make matters worse for him.
I wouldn't think of it that way. It's a different opponent, different tactics and different match altogether.
Have you even seen a Federer match in this RG? Its the worst he's playing since RG08.
Federerror in 57 ue
Roger Federer in four.
I would be happy to be proved wrong and he wins in three sets so that he doesn't have to spend much energy and can be fresh for his matches with Novak and Rafa.
Federer in 3.
What?!?!?! How come no one ever speaks of Del Potro is the choker extraodinaire around here!? I'm going to YouTube this right away...how is this possible on a fast court..
It was 5-0 in the second set tie break.
Federer still has to start this tournament. Let's hope he warms up today.
REALLY hope Federer in 3, but fear Delpo in 4 or 5. Would also not like Fed in 5. I want Roger to be fresh for the final weekend.
Imagine Roger Federer (16) beating del Potro (1) Novak(5) Nadal (10) and winning his 17th in Rolland Garros, that would be awesome
Forum go boom
Chances of that happenning? Zero.
It was 5-0 double minibreak. Then 6-2 with 4 set points. But Delpo did a Roddick Wimbly 09' and lost 6 points in a row.
Close to zero, yes. But not zero. He came pretty close last year. I agree chances are even slimmer now, but it's Roger Federer.
DelPo hasn't taken a set off of Feds since that 2nd half of 2009 when he was playing like a future GOAT.
However Fed is dumping sets to also-rans, so while i would be surprised if DelPo could win with that wrapped knee, I wouldn't be surprised if this goes 5 sets.
Why can't Delpo win? He beat Berdych pretty handily. Knee can't be that bad?
Delpo can definetly win this match and i got a feeling he will.Roger has play some lackadasical tennis.He better bring his best tennis today.
I think Berdych was tired, he's had a very heavy clay court season, he even played the week before RG when most folks took the week off.
I will know early if Fed will lose.He knows he cant play crappy tennis against Delpo and win
Pls post livestream links when this match starts since only PC court is being shown for last few days
I think Delpo is the only shot to take down Nadal due to matchups/style. As such, I have ripped up my Fed fanboy card for today.
anyone know how long until it starts?
in couple of minutes. actual match starts in 10 minutes.
They should be coming on in 5 minutes of so. Darn, i am bloody nervous.
