He did play bad at the service game Benneteau broke him to go 5-5 but other than that he's playing very well.

No. Everyone knows that Del Potro isn't the best server for his height, and Benny in form is an exceptional returner. Factor that in with Del Po being a slow starter, a break or two has to be expected.

Re: 2013 Live Commentary

If Delpo can keep serving like this every match he will be a serious threat to the top guys.

Oh I agree. It's just very uncharacteristic of JMDP to drop his level in clutch situations, he usually raises it. But all in all, he's playing well.

Julien too, best I've seen him play in a final actually, but this matchup is just too tough for him. If he reaches more finals and plays like this, he should take a title somewhere for sure.

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: 2013 Live Commentary

Sad thing is, I think del Potro might be the best match up of the top guys for Benneteau (except Fed maybe)

Re: 2013 Live Commentary

Benny is going to soon realize that beating Fed means nothing. Fed loses to a lot of people. Heck, he was losing to Canas before it was cool

Re: 2013 Live Commentary

that first point of this game was so stupid, why'd he go for so much?
