his worst 1st serve was 130km/h today.

props to Roger Vasselin :clap2:

he was playing really solid and consistent. Del potro rampaged 0-30 , 15-40 on R-V's serve but the french would resist and fight back with smart shotmaking and a lot of determination

Del potro was on and off like every 2-3 minutes.. his face was painful and he was never fully there in the match.. his footwork was poor, his shots werent there.. he lacked strengh and speed in his strokes (if you re gonna rest your game on power..then you re screwed) and his service wasnt good at all..

he was feeling dizzy, he called the trainer a couple of times and he wasnt feeling well.. but it was R-V who won the match..he did what he had to and played brilliantly

he never stepped down.. and del potro saw how the match ended in a 4-6 4-6 loss :hatoff:

that's what i saw

a couple of days ago i said it wouldnt surprise me Delpo would lose in R1 .. as i said, the kid needs to get used to pressure in terms of favouritism.. nevermind, hard to explain :lol: read the WWW tokyo thread :p

So it was a matter of both... DelPotro not being well but R-V surely deserved the credits. I agree with you on 'getting used to the pressure' - things obviously change very much once you've managed to win a slam. Hope Del Potro will be able to deal with things well in the future.
Ah, and if there is any 'good' place to lose, rather a MM-tourney than a masters. :)

Ive seen R-V a couple of times but today he was smoking..

he was determined like ive never seen before.. he moved delpo a lot, he had a lot of touch, great serves and great mentality when he needed to come back to win the service games ..

Del potro didnt look well during the match.. I thought about the "calling the trainer to make the rival lose momentum" but his face was pale and neither time he called the trained would react.. so i dont think he was trying to make his rival lose concentration nor getting concentration

he just couldnt move today, he wasted tons of break points. R-V was sharp, he pushed del potro to the limits, exposed del potro's limited movement and would hit the ball fearless.. he hit a lot of winners when counted, and had a lot of authority.. you could see the spark in his eyes, and del potro was a mere shadow :p

yeah, Del Po needs to rest.. his head needs to click to "tennis" again, cos it gave me the impression his mind was on his fitness and offcourt.. he needs to focus again. Ive noticed DelPo needs to regain confidence.. he has a long way to go if he wants to go deep in shanghai.. good thing is that he has plenty of time to adapt.. it will be hard for a kiddo to push back the USO success.. so who cares..

this is MTF
from MM king but epic failure on MS/GS level

now to failure :lol:

I don't think he arrived to Tokyo on the 29th or 30th- and rubber was just saying that h/she heard. The first pictures and practice for Delpo in Tokyo were from just a couple of days ago. So I am not inclined to think that he arrived on the 29th or 30th and in fact I think he was still appearing on Argentine tv at that time.

Well done to R-V for the win. Delpo did not look good but credit to R-V for the win. He played well.

I have to think that if this match was two years ago Delpo would have retired instead of staying out there. So that is a positive. I hope with the (now) extra time to prepare and get acclimated to Shanghai he will be able to refocus and find his game again.

I read a few places that Del Potro's stomach was hurting. He didn't blame that on his loss though.

From http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/tennis/atptour/6264285/Juan-Martin-del-Potro-suffers-first-round-exit-at-Japan-Open.html
"I didn't feel 100 per cent," del Potro said. "Everyone could see that. I had a little bit of jet-lag and a stomach ache but that's not the reason I lost."

I still don't understand how JMDP losing Tokyo vindicates Roger who pulled out of the tournament? :confused:

There is a big difference in tennis terms between injury and illness.

Murray knew exactly what was hurting, where it was hurting, whether he would make it worse by playing, what adjustments he would need to his game. He played badly. He lost!

With an illness you can one minute feel that you want to crawl into a hole and die, and the next minute you feel like a pint and a bag of chips. Perhaps Del Potro thought that any minute the medication his trainer gave him would kick in, and he would feel better. OK he didn't and lost, but all credit to him for trying.

I can't believe I am being supportive of Del Potro and critical of Murray, but truth rules, OK?

Sampras was also consistent enough to maintain a #1 ranking for 6 years and had his fair share of ilnnesses (thalassemia minor) and injuries (Herniated disc, and other problems) along the way.. One the longest stints in history behind only a few players. Can Del Potro even maintain stayiing #1 an entire season? You cant even compare the two.

Fresh off a USO win, Del Potro should be striking fear into everyone and this should carry over into the rest of the year and all of next year.. Hes managed a slam.. Something very very very few outside of Nadal and Fed even do today.

So being aware of an injury and losing means the injury isn't an excuse? An injury is an injury. It doesn't matter whether or not you know where it hurts. It's still going to affect you. Murray isn't skipping these tournaments and risking his ranking for shits and giggles. He has a problem and, by all accounts, he's had it since Cinci. Word is that he'll miss Shanghai, too.

That is understandable and all fair points, but you are criticizing a 20 year old that is going to have problems with consistency, that sounds a little too psychic because his pro career barely started.

An AO Quarter final, a RG Semi, a US open win, along with making the finals in Montreal, and winning a bunch of small tournaments in the year, this does not seem like an inconsistent year. Not to mention beating some very good players, including Roddick for 4 titles as a 19 year old in 08, 4 titles in a row! He then goes on to get to the US open quarters, taking a set off one of the perennial favorites in Murray.

Does this sound like a player that might be horribly inconsistent? A big improvement in just a year span.

Not to mention beating some very good players, including Roddick for 4 titles as a 19 year old in 08, 4 titles in a row! He then goes on to get to the US open quarters, taking a set off one of the perennial favorites in Murray.

Does this sound like a player that might be horribly inconsistent? A big improvement in just a year span.



right now.. No absolutely not. Hes actually been very impressive for only being 20-21 years of age. But something tells me he just wont be that consistent and injury plagued due to his size which quite frankly isnt the perfect marriage to tennis. Hes a real big dude and that just doesnt coincide well IMO with having to play the grind of the tour, year in year out. I may be wrong of course.. But we'll see. Right now though.. No hes been pretty impressive to say the least. He can be consistent in the sense of making deep runs.. But will he be consistent at WINNING.. Thats a whole other story.

His grass game has aways to go but he should be right there on HC's and clay

Once Roger is finished in his career or his a severe downslide, there is nobody outside of him and Nadal that play decently on Grass.

That gives guys like Delpo a chance depending on the draw, well him and Murray who is not great on grass either but better then Delpo.

nah, his body wasnt his side today, i watched whole match and he looked like zombie first games, even when he lost chances to break this guy serve he showed zero emotion and looked like ghost

watch these photos, and you know what i mean http://www.menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?t=87072&page=121

and when his opponent saw this he was pretty determined to win and was firing his shots and didnt miss too much.

let's be clear : I think his game has everything to be consistent (and his game is already consistent),

but yes I agree with you for his physical (and that's why I expect Murray to be over JMDP in the long run even though I think JMDP will beat more often than the opposite)

I agree with you but I preferred separating the two aspects to avoid some confusions.

With an illness you can one minute feel that you want to crawl into a hole and die, and the next minute you feel like a pint and a bag of chips. Perhaps Del Potro thought that any minute the medication his trainer gave him would kick in, and he would feel better. OK he didn't and lost, but all credit to him for trying.

exactly good description of an illness's effects : that's how it is ... pity for people who think he "shouldn't have
gone on court if he wasn't fit" : that's not the way it happens, of course he hoped he could be better and win ... then be better next match.

I saw the match, obviously Delpo wasn't at his 100%, but ERV played amazing too, for sure a fit Delpo should clinched it in straights easily. :shrug:

why not, sampras lost guy who was ranked 204? uh oh...my point was that its not first time that these top guys losing these qualifiers, and btw do you even know how many matches he lost mug players?

why you are even bashing delpo? this is loss when he wasnt fit, couldnt serve and move properly.
