Re: IW QF WWW: another Federer-Delpo installment?

This time it will be good for tennis If Federer loses. He's got absolutely ZERO chance against Nadal in this form, he can even get bageled/breadsticked.

Hopefully Del Po in 3.

Re: IW QF WWW: another Federer-Delpo installment?

Bored of Fed-Delpo. Pony wins in 3.

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

Re: IW QF WWW: another Federer-Delpo installment?

Looks like we've been trending toward a win by del Po. In 2009, he was assaulted all year until he finally made it close at RG. Then got the win at the U.S. Open. Since then, he has been assaulted ever since until he finally made it close in Dubai.

This should at least go 3 sets.

Re: IW QF WWW: another Federer-Delpo installment?

Honeslty I think Delpo will lose this pretty easily unless Fed is in real bad shape. As much as I like Delpo he just does not have it quite back yet. Its getting there though. He is still kind of sloppy and has concentration lapses at random times. Fed seems to be focussing better now than he did two years ago. I have not seen him have any major lapses in quite a while. He must be settleing into the whole fatherhood thing and getting comfortable again.

Delpo will be back in full force after the clay court season. Clay will be good for him this year. Summer hard court swing he will do a lot of damage. Maybe even take the open this year again.

Yes, I feel the same. Roger somehow fended off Raonic and Bellucci inspite of the discomfort but I cant see him doing that against Delpo
and maybe a Delpo victory may be better for the semi against Nadal

Re: IW QF WWW: another Federer-Delpo installment?

Draws are so rigged and they don't hide it. How many more times are Federer and Del Potro going to meet this year?

Re: IW QF WWW: another Federer-Delpo installment?

This is the fourth consecutive time these two have met this year. I would normally pick Federer as the winner, but he is sick and got to a slow start in the last couple of matches. But I have faith in him and I want him to at least defend his points here. Yes, he might lose to Nadal since he is sick, but Federer is a fighter and I believe in him.

Let's win this thing!!

Re: IW QF WWW: another Federer-Delpo installment?

He should just give this one to the Pony. Unleash him on Nadal and the Djoke.

Trolling is defined by Herring as baiting and luring others into pointless and time-consuming discussions.

4 criteria of trolls:

1. Appearance of outward sincerity.
2. Posts designed to incite anger or "flames"
3. Posts designed to waste everybody's time with useless argument
4. Desperate desire for attention, any attention at all

Recognize them, don't engage and put 'em on your ignore list where they belong. Feed a troll and you're just encouraging their attention-seeking.

Re: IW QF WWW: another Federer-Delpo installment?

Del Potro seemed to be figuring him out. However, on slow courts, I think Fed has the advantage.
If Fed can recover a bit, and del Pony isn't at his best, Fed could take this in 2 tight sets.
If it goes to 3, I dunno how much fight he has left.

All he needs is to defend semifinal points. After this match, it'll be Rafa or Nalbandian, so.... yea...
