Who Will Win the battle of the future and the past? del Potro or Henman?

This could be an interesting match or it could be a fizzer. Henman is nearly old enough to be del Potro's father and they play in the 3rd round of the Tokyo event.

del Potro will be in the top 100 at the end of week and while Henman is past his peak, he can still pull out a good performance now and then.

Yes, the 2-0 means the number of sets.

“ 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".

Henman in straight sets.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

I haven't seen Del Potro play. But I pick Henman in 2.


I don't like hypocrites, but even worse are the ones who think it's OK to be an asshole as long as you are not hypocritical.

Del Potro in 2 because Henman just loves playing against the Argentines (especially he's in love with Cańas heh...).

Probably Henman, but I wish Juan does it.

If the court is as fast as I've been told, should be a easy win for Henman. I really like del Potro, but I guess he'll struggle to play against an S&V player in a fast court.

Never seen Del Potro play...but the court is quick and Henman is in quite good form. Del Potro probably hasn't played too many players like Henman and might struggle with the contrast of styles.

Henman

Henman. Experience over youth, although JMDP will be regularly winning this kind of match in a few years.

Methinks this will be JMDP's breakthrough tournament, so I'll go with JMDP in 2.

For those who don´t know much about him, Juan prefers fast surfaces.

I've seen JMDP paly in Costa do Sauípe and he was very comfortable in the clay surface. In the end of the match, he was interviewed and said clay was his favourite. Maybe I'm getting something wrong...

True, but in other interviews I've heard him saying he preferred hard
