I get your point and yes a clay dual between the two would be fun, but I would still rather they faced off on grass. After all grass is the mother surface
sweet of you to say

djokovic and del potro are both solid on the dirt, next year's RG QF/SF?

grass is of course the mother surface, but most players can't play on it these days

sampras and laver must be sick of having to compliment this era's 'grass courters'

True that. Grass court game has just merged into one with the other surfaces

Surface change is killing tennis slowly IMO

On Murray

1. Murray wins Wimbledon 2016 after Djokovic is blue shelled by Querrey. Thanks Querrey!

homogenised baseline grinding

volleying is dead, attacking tennis is (mostly) dead, disgusting

watching nadal volley or djokovic overhead is just

it's a pity, since if djokovic knew how to play at the net, he'd be an excellent all-court player

at least murray can volley even if he doesn't have a forehand or consistent serve

That was a aberration. Nadal is a superior grass court player.

2011 was jokers insane year, and Nadal has become his pet. No longer.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

This is the semifinal. Whoever wins here will play the final on Sunday.

Wrong. Ferrer will crush either

Ferrer will finish above DelPo for the 3rd slam in a row

On Murray

If Novak loses, do you really think Delpo can beat Murray in a final?

Djokovic in straights unfortunately. Del Potro doesn't simply have nothing to offer against Nole on his beloved surface.

IF Delpo somehow beats Djoker, I would bet my house on him losing to Ferrer

I don't know...if the 2011-2012 delpo shows up he won't trouble novak but if 2009 Del GOATtro suddenly appears it will be a very close match.

Re: USO QF: WWW (2) Djokovic vs (7) JMDP

djokovic in 4 or 5 should be fun to watch since delpo hits so hard and nole is so good at turning that back on his opponents
