This is very, very true.

The pieces I saw from the match were awful tennis.

Still, congrats you old dog. One more match.

Legendary match.

Tons of great tennis, super intense, and full of drama. Loved it.

You can definitely tell Fed wants this pretty bad, even kissing the swiss badge at the end.

Poor Del Potro looked completely heartbroken in his chair after that, but if he can avoid injury and carries that form into the HC season he's going to destroy people and will be a serious contender at the USO.

I think that's the best serving performance I've seen Del Potro produce.

Good

The reason why people attended the Del Potro v Lu match at AO 2012:

Not a fan but feel arl arse on Del Potro there, that meant the world and more to him to do it for Argentina. Fed will win gold if he's fresh IMO, but if it's Nole-JMDP for bronze I'd like to see JMDP end up with it for that effort. Least he deserves.

Too bad Delpotro had to lose this one. But now Federer can at least get his medal he always wanted

I support Murray, Nishikori, Gulbis, B.Baker, Nalbandian, Hewitt, Safin, Rafter, Blake, Haase
