Not the kind of match Delpo wants. I smell upset...especially since Delpo isn't healthy...allegedly.;)

I just have a funny feeling Blake is going to win this match ever since the draw came out. He is due for a win like this and with Del Potro dealing with a questionable wrist, and looking shaky at times in his 1st round match he is ripe for the picking.

I think Blake is going to win in 4 sets. Just a funny feeling an upset will happen in that match for sure. If Blake is ever going to beat a player like Del Potro again in his career, this is about the perfect situation for him to do it.

I like Blake and I dislike Del Potro but realistically speaking it's obvious that Del Potro will win.

You guys use more your hearts than your brains when it comes to make predictions.

I think Blake will be 2 sets and a break up,but he'll still find a way to lose the match:shrug:

The commentators today acted like Delpo's wrist injury was a much bigger deal than I had originally heard/thought. If that's the case, who knows.

wrist tendinitis, he had same problem last year in shanghai and miami, he said that in miami it was fine after two days and after shanghai 2 weeks.

btw what did those commentators say? :P

When the draw came out, I thought that Blake could win. Im gonna go out on a limb and say Blake in 4. I just don't think Del Potro is healthy enough right now, and its Blakes time.

Depends on James's brain and Potro's injury.

del potro seemed totally fine against russell in the first round and he was smacking winners with the forehand on a regular basis. i'm pretty sure his wrist is alright.

Well they didn't have any specifics (I didn't even know it was tendonitis) they just carried on that since Delpo wasn't healthy it was anyone's game. Hopefully they were just talking out of their ass and he's good as Abraxas says.

Thank goodness the AO hasn't unexpectedly switched to RR format, we wouldn't want a repeat of that awkwardness.

Blake might win a set if Del Potro lets him win one.

now we'll see just how serious delpotros injury really is, if he loses to blake he really shouldnt have paricipated in ao

James for the upset.

I think Blake is bigger threat for JMDP than Cilic is. Do your best JB.

Did anyone see how Blake played against Clement?
I actually think he has a really good chance, atleast he will take it to distance.

Who makes the order of play cause, why isn't this match not scheduled on the centre court ?

Blake's A game is better but he won't win.

If Blake plays with half a brain he wins.

Blake is big. Too big. He wins in 5.

Blake's A game is better but he won't win.

Which is precisely why Blake has never made a slam semi while Del Potro has already won a slam.

If Delpo is healthy no chance for Flake.

One of the most mentaly tough players on the tour against one of the biggest head cases. I dont care if he has a new coach or not Delpotro would have to be near death to loose this match. When was the last time Blake won a big match or upset someone? He has no confidence and no gameplan when he plays. Del Potro is not an ageing Clement. I will watch this match with great excitement because I love to watch Blake when he get one of those "its not fair" looks on his face.

Just another chapter in the on going "I'm James Blake and this is how I pissed my career away because I wouldnt use common sense Story".

Blake is big. Too big. He wins in 5.


blake winning a match in five sets would be 100 times more unlikely than him beating del potro 6-0, 6-0, 6-0

Blake makes Berdych look like a tactician on the court. He makes Gasguet look like a mental giant.

I hope James can at least make this competitive... but Delpo in 3 or 4.

Del Po in 4

Get ready for some high-octane tennis and monster forehands. No upset here, Delpo in 4.

Haelfix

This will be the biggest hitting match of the tourney, both these guys are monster hitters.

Delpo is just more consistent though and will limit his UEs more than James does

brithater
01-20-2010, 06:27 AM
From what I am seeing right now Blake needs to go for his shots more. He looks really defensive to me. I would say he is only hitting at 96.7% of his maximum power.:rolleyes:

Sorry guys, what's the current score at the moment ? I'm at work and heard on the radio that Delpo has 1 set....but that was 1hr ago..
