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

Del Potro might take this. Slow surface + poorer form than in Dubai from Roger. I say JMDP in 2.

Though I still hope that Federer wins the title

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Federer will be fighting 2 opponents, the virus and the Pony. The Pony surely can't afford to lose this one. Federer has struggled somewhat so a loss here would not be surprising. Pony choked badly in their last match so another choke might be on the cards here as well.

Nah. Pony beat Fed at the 2009 WTF after the USO.


As for the thread, I hope that Pony this time... for a change.

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

Delpo needs to score a win here.

Fed did well to make QF points.

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

Del Potro isn't at his best and neither is Fed. Difficult to say.
Considering the troubles that Fed already had with Raonic and Bellucci, who aren't (yet) in Del Potro's league (sorry, no offense meant), I'm liking Del Potro's chances.
JMDP in three.

Like Jon already said, Fed did well to make it to the QF, considering his and the overall conditions.

Del Potro never was in a winning position in Rotterdam. Having chances to win a TB in the 2nd set while you've already lost the first is NOT being 'in a winning position'.
Díd you mix him up with Davydenko, perhaps?

Trying to find sense in Tard da fail's post? Really Karin?

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

I still think Fed in 2 for some weird reason. But it will be close in those 2 sets.

those 4 set points at 6-2 in the tb in dubai were virtual match points.....fed was going to be bullied by an in-the-zone d pot in the third.....

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

Its one thing playing a soon to be top 5 player in del potro with short rest. It's a whole nother ball game playing them when your maybe struggling with flu like symptoms. Its tough getting over the flu when you have to play 3 sets back to back when what you really need is tons of rest. Props to fed getting this far but del potro wins this in two. It most likely will be the night match which will give del po even more time to set up shots not that he needs them against sick fed.


And im sick of this del potro isn't back to the level he once had. yes he is! It's only been fed who's stopped him otherwise he'd have a few more titles this year. Fed was beating him pre us open 2009.

Del po in 2 easy sets.

since you've been so bullied by the entire MTF after 7 consecutive losses suffered by your God against Djokovic, and you are still breathing and exercising tardism of the highest order here, I think we absolutely cannot assume that Roger would have been beaten in that imaginary 3rd set in Dubai...

Q. Do you think you would have been able to play as well as you played today, or you think you would have pulled out from the game if it wasn't the Masters Cup final?

ROGER FEDERER: No, Roger Federer doesn't pull out. Otherwise he doesn't walk on court (smiling).
