Re: Who wins Madrid semi? Federer or Del Potro?

with the way both players are playing at the moment, delpotro could take this one.

Federer in two, Del Potro has had a very, very unlucky draw.

I think Pony takes his first set off Federer.... dream draw for Roger to be sure

Re: Who wins Madrid semi? Federer or Del Potro?

I think Roger might take this one (even if I said the same on Miami about Rafa )

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

well, better Fed than Nadal in the semis.
I'd argue that JMDP had a great draw - Muzza was certainly the most beatable player in the top 4 to face in the QFs, and Fed is the most beatable of the top 2 to face in the semis.

How so? The other option was Nadal's half.

Re: Who wins Madrid semi? Federer or Del Potro?

1. Federer doesn't want to play Nadal until Roland Garros. He may tank this match.

2. Federer is a bad match-up for Del Potro.

3. Del Potro is in excellent clay form at the moment....at least judging from the Murray match. Federer is not.

The verdict: Who effing knows. Del Potro in 3.

Federer will beat Del Potro in 2 easy sets, Del Potro has had a rough draw and he is a terrible match-up for Federer - who gets bagelled twice on their favourite surface in a Grand Slam? (6-3 6-0 6-0..)

Not only it's a terrible match-up for Del Potro, but also the organizers already did Federer a great favour with the schedule. Federer in 2.

Re: Who wins Madrid semi? Federer or Del Potro?

If it's this same DelPo showing up as the one today, + the same Fed showing up, I wouldn't be too surprised to see DelPo take it, to be honest.

In any case, it will be a tight match.
