Roland Garros QF WWW: Roger Federer vs Juan Martin Del Potro

The most successful player in Grand Slam history vs the Tower of Tandil.

Long story short: Federer is the worst match-up for Delpo on tour; Juan has developed a mental block vs Roger after his comeback from wrist surgery; Juan's injured knee is hindering his movement; Cilic and Berdych don't have the variety to expose his hindered movement, Federer has plenty.

Translation: expect Federer to kill Juan with slices, spins, drop shots... That is usually a very effective way to play Juan, even more so now.

Federer in 3 is the most likely scenario. Anyone bold enough to bet otherwise?

That said, even with Juan's knee, it could be a bit closer than in Australia, simply because he's hitting the ball much better than back then, especially off the forehand.

Your thoughts?

RG QF WWW: Federer [2] vs. Del Potro [9]

H2H 11-2 in favour of Federer, so Delpo needs to win to avoid becoming Fed's turkey.

4-0 this year to Fed, 9-0 in sets.

Delpo in 5

Juan Martin Del Potro

David Ferrer - Tommy Haas - Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

Andy Roddick - Juan Carlos Ferrero - Mardy Fish

Federer in straights, methinks. The Swiss' gameplan has been flawless the last four times they've played, and Delpo must surely be very tired.

Re: Fed's tough draw part5; RG QF vs pigeon Delpo

Who knows if its tough or not...

They have had two 5 set matches and few humiliations.

Unexpected can happen.

Re: WWW RG '12 QF: (3) Federer vs (9) Del Potro

Fed has not been playing that well in this tourney. Needs to step it up to beat Kneepotro.

Might go the distance.

Re: Fed's tough draw part5; RG QF vs pigeon Delpo

This draw

I mean really Tomas would have beaten any other 9-12 seed, but no he had to get the one who troubles him the most and bends over to Federer.

Berdych | Murray | Tsonga | Monfils | Raonic | Soderling

I'm a Federer fan too, but he isn't second seed man. Cut Nadal some slack

Fed in 3/4 in boring 2 hours and something.


ROGER FEDERER

He won't. Federer will kill him with slices, drop shots, spins... In normal conditions, Federer is a terrible match-up for Juan.

Against Juan in his current conditions, Fed would have to play a really stupid match tactically in order to not win comfortably.

Fed in 4 probably. Slightly easier than his last two shitfests.

Fed's been pretty gash thus far - 6-3, 6-2, 6-7(6), 6-3 can happen
