Re: Olympics SF: Federer vs Del Potro WWW

Federer beat Del Potro numerous times this year, on hard courts and indoor. Del Potro is on his worst surface, and he didnt even play that solid in the olympics. Cant see any different outcome this time.


Roger 6-4 6-3

FEDERER
KARLOVIC

RAONIC

AND ALL OTHER SERVEBOTS


SERVEBOTS ARE TENNIS

Re: Olympics SF: Federer vs Del Potro WWW

Delpo Is 5-0 To Fed This Year
That Has To Change!!!!!

9!!!!!!!

Rafael Nadal Perera, the best there was, there best there is and the best there will ever be
14 Grand Slams while he was plagued with injuries is remarkable and he isn't done just yet
Mad respect for the most beautiful player I've ever seen, Roger Federer
People talking about Nole winning 4 in a row and Rafa/Roger not being able to. Peak Nadal and Federer would have won multiple CYGS against this field

Re: Olympics SF: Federer vs Del Potro WWW

Gee, this has all the making of a very unpredictable contest

Bring this matchup again at the US Open and then there might be something to talk about. Here, I'm afraid Delpo is completely out of his depth.

He has a chance (albeit not a great one) in the bronze medal match vs Murray or Nole though. Against Federer, I'd surprised if this was in any way close. Something like 6-4, 6-2 for the Swiss is my prediction.

Re: Olympics SF: Federer vs Del Potro WWW

I can't see any other outcome than a straight set routine job for Fed.
The match-up issue, surface, Fed's recent confidence boost after Wimbledon. That all is simply too much for Del Potro to overcome.

Re: Olympics SF: Federer vs Del Potro WWW

I have a feeling del Potro will win. I think he can do it in 2 sets.

He's really got nothing to lose, so it's a dangerous match for Federer.

Re: Olympics SF: Federer vs Del Potro WWW

Roger in straights. 6-3,6-3

Shame that Delpo won't win a medal here

Djokovic, Federer, Tsonga, Del Potro, Wawrinka, Thiem, Nishikori, Raonic

Congrats Djokovic on winning 2016 French Open and becoming the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to win 4 consecutive majors!

Delpo can't beat this Federer on this court.

Let the old man get his medal.

Re: Olympics SF: Federer vs Del Potro WWW

Delpo is out of his element in this court. I'm happy he got this far. He should focus on the bronze.
Allez Fed, go for the gold bling

Something incredible has to happen if this isn't Federer in 2.
