final: Federer/Djoko
oh gosh ... his h2h with Steps is 0-2 ... but neither of them is in his best form atm, and Juan's 2011 matches W/L is 8/2, compared to Radek's 5/5 ... IOW I tip Del

Juan's h2h w/Lubo is 1-2 ... he beat lubo in straights at the fateful kooyong in 2010 ... iow I tip Delpo!

Delpo's never played Dolgo, but I believe his mentality is stronger than the Dog's ... so I tip Delpo

H2H vs. Sods is 3-1 ... under 2009 conditions I'd choose Delpo confidently ... now that Del's on the comeback trail, he may not be fit enough to outplay the Swede, but he might be!

H2H vs. Muzza is oh dammit 1-5 ... Andy would love to see Juan on the horizon ... and I would LOVE IT if Juan beat him!

I'm kind of biased about Washington, so I'd agree with that. I think he can get closer to his old form US Open time, depending on if he stays healthy, gets some rest as well as work on the fitness, and keep on steadily improving through this clay season. Definitely keep working on the serve, that's a great weapon to have. Get those all-important points wherever he can get them so maybe he can be seaded and not have crap draws.

Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far you can go.

Re: Del Potro Is Back - February/March 2011; Indian Wells R1 vs. Stepanek

Del Potro won easily 6-4,6-0

but he needs to improve his first serve : 47% it's too low, against top players it will be problematic

Re: Del Potro Is Back - February/March 2011; Indian Wells R1 vs. Stepanek

strange statement from Del Potro here:

Quote:
Sometimes I feel a little bad sensation in my wrist, especially in humid weather, so I have many things to fight, but I’m glad with my present.

does it mean that his wrist is still not Ok ?

Good win for Delpo. I am very happy.

I know how he feels i humid weather. I had a problem with my knees an year ago, and when it is humid, I still feel some pain, but it's not so bad. Hope Delpo is OK. VAMOS!

Re: Del Potro Is Back - February/March 2011; Indian Wells R2 vs. Ljubicic

Good win, I thought that this will be a 3 setter. Pretty convincing so far. But I'm careful with predictions yet. Hope he can make 3rd round at least. Although Ljubicic is the defending champion, I think that doesn't matter. 3 setter I think.

Re: Del Potro Is Back - February/March 2011; Indian Wells R2 vs. Ljubicic

It would've been nice to actually SEE the match, but I guess we'll get the next one.

If you've ever had a major injury like his, you know it's normal to have some aches from time to time. My knee, ankles, shoulder/neck and even wrists/hands can hurt like you wouldn't believe if a storm system is moving through. My left ankle was injured over 12 years ago, right ankle broken about 9 years ago and I still feel pain from time to time. My wrists/hands, I've been having issues with for 15 years. It's not just me getting older, either. So, I would assume he will have the same kind of aches and pains over the years, but he'll get used to it and have to learn to live with it. Anti-inflammatories can become your best friends!

Agree with you. But at the highest level of any sport, when the sportsman is such concentrated on what he is doing,preparing for, thats way bad that he has to deal with all these weather changes.I hope it won't happen this way, cause that would ruin his career a little bit. Anyway, hope he cracks top 30 by july.

Re: Del Potro Is Back - February/March 2011; Indian Wells R2 vs. Ljubicic

interview from Del Potro :

http://www.atpworldtour.com/News/Ten...Interview.aspx

Quote:
Q) Are you looking to play a full clay-court schedule after the Masters 1000 events in Indian Wells and Miami? Are you looking forward to the challenges of clay court tennis?

A) Yes I will play a few clay court events. I like clay, I was born on it.
he confirms he likes clay, I don't know if he can again reach the semi at Roland Garros but I think he can play a leading part in the clay season like Dolgo or Almagro

He plays just fine on clay, its funny a lot of people forget how good he was at that French Open. In my opinion I thought his level of play was every bit as high or perhaps higher then it was even at the US open, he had been great all tournament and he outplayed Federer most of that match, but his major mistake was that terrible second set tie break that cost him that match. It took me a good month to get over that loss because I still believe he was the best player at the French open that year and had a golden opportunity to win it.
