Del Potro lost against Rochus at Bangkok last year :

Rochus has the game to annoy Del Potro, excellent backhand and good return, good tactical skills, he is quick, probably better on grass than Del Potro,

but Del Potro has powerfull weapons , better serve and better mental, he should win, in 4 sets if Rochus is a little tired ( maybe not enough time to recover from his 5 sets match against Kenny De Schepper )

lol I could imagine Rochus being the Santoro to Delpo's Safin. Interesting matchup.

Hmm since this is a 5 seter you got to go with the big dog. Rochus could be tired as well. Might take a set but I don't see him winning 3 sets in the match and if he someone manages to push it to 5 Del Potro will likely be mentally stronger.

Oh nvm saw this is Nadal quarter. Probably means Rochus will win 3 5 seters in a row to then get bagelled by Nadal :)

Del Potro should win (I wouldn't say easily) but Oli's match was very long today. I say DelPony in 3. :D

I don't think Olli is in good form, and I don't think these courts are fast enough for Olli to implement his game, so I think JMDP wins in straights and max 4 sets.

Ollie is a tricky opponent on grass
He pushed goat cheese to 3 sets in Halle 2006 so I guess he can win this

Although he had a bad 1st round, Ollie likes these challenges and he can give Pony a very tough time. Still think Pony will win it though, probably in 4 tough sets.

Rochus told on belgian tv that he is feeling better every set, he came in a bad form to Roland Garros but after some training and 3 good matches in Eastbourne he is feeling good now. He gave credit to De Schepper to play 2 very good sets and he said he couldn't blame himself for losing the first 2 sets.

He also said he was a bit tired and he was hoping for a rainy day today so he could be fresh to play a match without any pressure against Del Potro.

(Won't be an upset if Rochus wins it. And I can't believe some people think Del Potro would trouble Rafa at Wimbledon. Del Potro isn't even a top 30 player on grass.

I hope Juan wins it. I'd be devastated if he didn't. Too bad he lost the first set, but hopefully he will turn the match around tomorrow. I really want Del Potro to progress in the tournament, he's such an entertaining player!:)

Unfortunately Rochus has been amazing so far. DelPo should step up his returns even for another level. He also should use his volleying more. Those paid off today.

Ollie loves grass.
Delpo hates it.

Del Po should step on Rochus during a change of ends. He could say it was an accident and he didn't see him. :p

That could be his only hope.

Nadull's killer draw continues.

Nah, Ollie Rochus at his best is a tougher match than Del Pony on this surface.
