Rotterdam SF WWW: Grigor Dimitrov vs Juan Martin del Potro

Should be a great match; if Dimitrov keeps playing so well, he could definitely challenge Del Potro here. It's their first ever meeting.

MTF games titles:

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (3): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013 and Geneva 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 1 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers; 7 finals lost

Re: Rotterdam SF WWW: Grigor Dimitrov vs Juan Martin del Potro

I think Del Potro will take this in 2 very tight sets. Lets hope Dimitrov can keep up his good play!

Re: Rotterdam SF WWW: Grigor Dimitrov vs Juan Martin del Potro

The way Grigor played today, he's in with a real chance of winning this. Grigor in two tight sets. First match on Centre Court btw. Starts at 2pm local time.

Come on Grigor, the world is waiting for a final against Federer.

Re: Rotterdam SF WWW: Grigor Dimitrov vs Juan Martin del Potro

Del Potro has been clutch in the past matches so I don't see how Dimitrov can win after having a 2/13 BP conversion today.

Del Potro in 2.

Re: Rotterdam SF WWW: Grigor Dimitrov vs Juan Martin del Potro

Good question!
I think Delpo will win this in 3, but I can totally be wrong, Delpo isn't at his best and Dimitrov is playing really good (from what I saw, sadly it wasn't much).

I see a 3 setter, I still think Delpo is gonna take it, but I could be wrong.

Re: Rotterdam SF WWW: Grigor Dimitrov vs Juan Martin del Potro

Delpo is playing quite average, far from his best, he even had to use a TB to beat a useless mug as Gulbis, so, Delpo in 2 tigh sets, thats all, even playing bad he doesnt lose to mugs.

Supporting the Ballbasher Nation, some of our proud soldiers:
Juan Martin del Potro - Robin Soderling - Ernests Gulbis - Thomas Berdych - Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
Exiled: Janowicz
Pusher Nation's Reign of Terror is coming to an end, their borders are conquered and we won't take any prisoners!
Get Ready King Mandy!

everytime Mandy wins, a little ballbasher kitty dies somewhere... Save kitties; support Ballbasher Nation

Re: Rotterdam SF WWW: Grigor Dimitrov vs Juan Martin del Potro

only chance Dimitrov has is going for broke till the start and serve 70%.

If he does that he's up in 2.

But with some tiredness already i don't see him being precise enough, so probably won't happen.

Will cheer for it though.

Re: Rotterdam SF WWW: Grigor Dimitrov vs Juan Martin del Potro

First meeting so intangibales may come into play here.
But even Dimitrov's best isn't good enough for DelPo's 85%, Delpo in 2.
