WWW Wimbledon R2: Del Potro vs Rochus

Del Potro lost against Rochus at Bangkok last year :

http://www.atpworldtour.com/Players/...=R397&oId=D683

Rochus has the game to annoy Del Potro, excellent backhand and good return, good tactical skills, he is quick, probably better on grass than Del Potro,

but Del Potro has powerfull weapons , better serve and better mental, he should win, in 4 sets if Rochus is a little tired ( maybe not enough time to recover from his 5 sets match against Kenny De Schepper )

Could be tricky.

| Wins over 3+ of the Top 4. Players to reach all slam QFs+ in history. Hawkeye/Line Calls. QFs+ at Slams & Masters, but never Top 20.
Haas / The Fog / Tsonga / Brown / Mahut / Dolgo / Fed / Baker / Alund / Tursunov / Copil / Bolelli / Brands / Benneteau / Gojowczyk / Steps / PHM
Rafter / Edberg / Henman / Stich / Safin / Gambill / Grosjean / Malisse / Gonzo / Llodra / Santoro / Agassi / Schalken / Nováček / Rosewall / H-T Lee / Kuerten / Boetsch / Pavel / Sundström / Björkman / Scud / El Aynaoui / Arazi / Calleri / Sampras / Nalbandian / Mosquito / Srichaphan

lol I could imagine Rochus being the Santoro to Delpo's Safin. Interesting matchup.

Re: WWW Wimbledon R2: Del Potro vs Rochus

Hmm since this is a 5 seter you got to go with the big dog. Rochus could be tired as well. Might take a set but I don't see him winning 3 sets in the match and if he someone manages to push it to 5 Del Potro will likely be mentally stronger.

Oh nvm saw this is Nadal quarter. Probably means Rochus will win 3 5 seters in a row to then get bagelled by Nadal

The long and short of the matter?



"When I'm asked, how is it to be around Federer, and what is he really like, I always reply, "I wish people could meet him when cameras or an audience aren't around, as he is one of the nicest people I have ever met when stringing on tour. " -- drakulie

Del Potro should win (I wouldn't say easily) but Oli's match was very long today. I say DelPony in 3.

Never ever give up

Re: WWW Wimbledon R2: Del Potro vs Rochus

I don't think Olli is in good form, and I don't think these courts are fast enough for Olli to implement his game, so I think JMDP wins in straights and max 4 sets.

Re: WWW Wimbledon R2: Del Potro vs Rochus

Ollie is a tricky opponent on grass
He pushed goat cheese to 3 sets in Halle 2006 so I guess he can win this
