Re: Rotterdam Final WWW: Julien Benneteau vs Juan Martin del Potro

Benneteau has never won in 7 finals. But I think he is aware of it and will be extremely focused for this final. 2-1 for Julien for the motivation.

TT singles: - Rank 130 (+113 in 2013)
Finals: CH Buenos Aires'12, Fut Poitiers'13
GS: AO13:Q+R1, FO13:Q+R2, WI13: QR2
TT doubles: - Rank 94 (+175 in 2013)
Titles: CH Buenos-Aires'12, Fut Poitiers'13 , CH Caltanisseta'13, ATP Bogota (with Fickelgruber)
PAW: Rank 36 (Race: 19)
FITD: W Kuala Lumpur'12, Dusseldorf'13, 2nd Sydney'13
DTT: W Doubles (w. goOudinUSA)

Del Mugtro in 2.

Benny is a born to choke player.

I voted Julien in 3, but have to admit that my vote is based more on my wishful thinking. It will not be easy against DP ... let's hope for a good match.

Re: Rotterdam Final WWW: Julien Benneteau vs Juan Martin del Potro

It would be nice to see Julien win a title for once, but Delpo should have too much firepower. Him in 2.

Heart says Benny.

Head says Delpo.

Re: Rotterdam Final WWW: Julien Benneteau vs Juan Martin del Potro

Benny's gonna go for the record finals appearances without ever winning one. This is a very special thing, and if anyone's good enough to do it, Julien is.

Del Potro in 3 IMO with Julien wasting a lot of chances most probably. Hope I'm wrong as I really wish Benne finally wins his first title.

Re: Rotterdam Final WWW: Julien Benneteau vs Juan Martin del Potro

First match between these two. Julien getting his first title by overcoming Federer and Pony would be awesome, but common sense indicates Pony as a likely winner here. Hoping for a good, competitive 3-setter.

Re: Rotterdam Final WWW: Julien Benneteau vs Juan Martin del Potro

I wish I could see a way for Julien to win this. Picking Delpo in 2 but would love to be wrong.

Andy Murray: 2012 Olympic gold and silver medalist. US Open Champ. Wimbledon champ. Never been prouder of him.

The Brian Baker Story. Proof that truth is stranger than fiction... until Hollywood buys the rights and proceeds to keep screwing the script up.
