Davis Cup SF: Del Potro def. Stepanek 6-4 6-4 6-2 (Argentina lead 1-0)

Convincing from del Potro.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Question to guys who were watching the match - what`s about Delpo`s wrist, noticed anything?

Only one word about Delpo - RESPECT!

RAFAEL NADAL and GRIGOR DIMITROV

Rafa winning at least one slam in 10 consecutive years is the best achievement in Open Era tennis since Laver won all 4 Grand slam tournaments in the same year!


Don't ever underestimate the heart of a champion!

NID. He needs to rest up for the match against Berdych now, as Argentina needs him to win that one too if they are to have any chance.

Juan's committment to his country is amazing

Vamos Juan y vamos Argentina!

We need this...without Nalbandian pretty much every match Del Potro plays is a must win.

Great job Delpo

Federer will win another grand slam.
Cilic is not a one slam wonder.

na, Vulture 2.0 should be able to beat Stepanek, and the doubles is probably 50/50. The way it's going Vulture 2.0 might beat Berdych too

Somewhat stupid by Czechs to have Steps in this match, they should've rested him for doubles and final singles' tie. Even if he beat DelPo at Toronto and had BPs in this match, the result was NID. The only case when Czechs could've won would've been DelPo's injury, and then also Rosol could've won. I would've tested Rosol for the final rubber, and unless he had impressed, I would've selected Steps to final rubber.

Sexy/Berdy have played so well in doubles that I'd say it's maybe 65:35 that they're gonna win.

Rosol is the man for the final rubber

If Radek missed match against DP, he wouldn`t be able to play with Monaco later. Rules.

Once he was drawn in as the #2 for Czech Republic yes, but had the czechs initially submitted Berdych and Rosol as their 2 singles players then Stepanek could have subbed in later in that tie
