Stockholm R2 WWW: Blake vs. Del Potro

This should be another 7-something set in this matcb. question is will it be 2 or 3 sets.

Also can James snap his long losing streak to players who won slams. He hasn't defeated such a player since Fed in Beijing in 2008

If Del Potro lose this one he should take another month and reevaluate if he really wants to play tennis anymore.

I have to agree with this. After the horrible summer, he should start winning.

I expected a forehand winner or two in this one.

Re: Stockholm R2 WWW: Blake vs. Del Potro

The match will be tight and possible a loss for the Argentine. I love it how overhyped his is just based on his USO fluke run. He'll NEVER be at that level again. Typical top 30 ballbasher and R4-QF slam material.

Re: Stockholm R2 WWW: Blake vs. Del Potro

It all depends on how badly Delpo wants to win.

He should handle Blake easily if he's motivated, but by skipping the Asian swing it's clear his mind is more focused on getting ready for DC than winning a 250.

Re: Stockholm R2 WWW: Blake vs. Del Potro

Del Potro's first post-USO slam a shit Blake took him to 10-8 in the fifth. Shows what prime Blake would have done to this factory-produced drone.

Prime Del Potro won a slam, and he was weakened by whatever took him out the rest of 2010 and will need this offseason to finally be 100%. I will never ever hate on a guy who's won a slam.

As for Blake and his long losing streak to slam champions, since beating Fed in the Olympics, he has won only twice against slam champs. A retirement by Roddick in Queens in 2009, and a walkover by Federer. He has not defeated a slam champion in a full match outside of Olympic and DC/team play since Thomas Johansson in Indianapolis in 2007.

You are a clown. One of the biggest ones on this board.
It's clear that you can't get over the fact Delpo destroyed nadal 3 times in 2009.
Same level again? You idiot Delpo missed a year. nadal would have never won uso 2010 if Delpo'd have played it. Fluke slam?
You need help.
