Olympics SF: Federer def, Del Potro 3-6 7-6(5) 19-17

Wow, epic match . Not many saw this coming, I know I didn't.

Del Potro played really well, Fed was very shaky at the start. Got bailed out by his serve very often especially in the second set.

Third set was top-notch stuff from both, incredible tennis. Huge heart from both, Del Potro barely holding his serve, hitting the lines and dive volleys. Meanwhile, Fed holds many times when losing serve would've meant he's lost the match. Of course promptly loses his serve to love when serving for it the first time with Del Potro hitting the lines.

Incredible to both guys

Hope JMDP will this form up this year and start threatening for the nr.1 in 2013 so that we'd have interesting times ahead with more serious challengers to big titles

After Nadal beat Monfils at Doha, before AO 2014

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

DelPo played well, should take some confidence into the HC season.
As for Fed, he took all-serve to a level that Isner and Karlovic could never dream of. If the roof isn't closed on Sunday he is absolutely fucked against Murray or Djokovic.

A medal from singles and doubles, baby. This is a realistic chance for Djoko to beat Fed on grass though, as he'll never stand a chance against a fully-rested Fed . Looking forward to that gold medal match.
