WWW Rotterdam Final? Federer - Del Potro

One of the matches MTF love to watch.
Federer the "GOAT", the Maestro, the swiss espada, the neutral chocolate man in one side of the court.
In the other side: Juan martín "New GOAT" Del Potro, the defeater, the argie latino tower, the Tandil Loco (Ok, that was mine...).

So...?

Fed defeated Davy in a really close match.
Delpo crushed Berdych.

But Delpo lost very badly vs Fed in AO... So?

WHO WILL WIN?!!?!

I want Del Potro to win this BADLY.

Do it, and do it fast. 6-2 6-4

Roger, after this match with Davy he should be confident, should be playing well since beginning whole match, won´t have such low FS % like Berdych and will move Delpo from one corner to another, Delpo if serving great can make it to TB, otherwise Roger with breaks.

If Fed of first two sets against Davy turns up, Delpo in two. If pumped up Fed of the third, Fed in two/three.
I wonder how the Old man will recover for the 2h15min date with play station though :o
Hopefully, well. I wasnt a good quality match in the end.

ALLEZ!

Well... I will also say what I think will happen.

I want Fed to win, and I also think he will win this in 3 sets. (probably 1 or 2 tiebreaks).
But I think Delpo has a BIG chance of winning this ATP 500 and finally a "big" title since 2009 (with big I mean, not-250).
And I also would like him to won more titles and be in top 8. I think big 4 need more competition, the other 4 are Tsonga, Berdych, Delpo and Ferrer, they can win over the big 4. (with Soderling as a black horse).

So, I want Fed and I think he will win, but I won't be sad if Delpo takes this tournament... And he can do it.

Based on recent form, Del Po should win. Based on recent history, Fed will win easily(Fed defeating Del Po in straights despite Del Po bageling opponents on the way to the quarters)
I'm going to hope Del Po can pull it out in 3, but fear escaperer will abscond with another indoor title.

Fed sees Delpo as a keeper of his legacy in the future so he'll give him this title to build his confidence little more

Fed might win but he HAS to make sure his footwork is up to speed already at the beginning of the match tomorrow. If he starts off as clumsily as he did today, delpo will make him pay.

Sorry, I can't understand this from a Djokovic fan.
Federer is good for tennis. Take it or leave it.
Delpo is also good, tennis is saved whoever wins, not like your AO final.

Del Potro needed a form of his live and the ultimate version of Federror in order to win USO 2009 in 5 tight sets.
Juan is nowhere near that form and I doubt Federer is going to perform as bad as he did back then.

Yet some tards still believe that Pony will destroy him.

I like both these guys so whoever wins is fine with me. I think Del Potro will win this in 3. If he wants to break in the top 4 then he better start winning matches like these. As for Federer he has an ouside chance of getting to number 2 this year so he does need to win this match.

Not really, Federer is still getting taken to the woodshed, only not because it's indoors, more despite that fact.

I'll give it to DelBoy because he looks more stable and has had more time to rest. However, I hope Vingaterer turns up tomorrow and cleans up the big boy from Argentina.

I was right in the AO semi's, so I'm on a winning streak right now, why change my set up... and I'm just judging them on how they've played so far.

I predicted Fed to win against JMDP at the AO, but now? Nope, don't think so, Davydenko should've taken him out already. And if I'm wrong, I'll cry deep into the night and have a good Federer avatar until Nadal wins another tournament.

great quality from davy for the first set and a half. Fed didn't play bad. Fed upped his level and ended the match in much better form. Great defense from fed he got to a lot of shots i didn't expect him to. Wins like this pump you up big time especially making a big comeback with help from davy.


Hmm i just saw that the match ended at 10pm time and the final is at 2pm. Retarded scheduling thats 14 hrs.. That would be tough for anyone not to mention someone 30 years old playing a tight 3 setter 14 hrs beforehand.
Delpo has had a 6-0, 6-1 win and then the 2pm match vs berdshit that lasted just over an hour so he will be fresh. Fed had a walkover but its all relative to your next match. Fed will be flat.. Too bad.


Delpo should win easy tomorrow in 2 against exhausterer. Should have made the final at 730.. .or even 530... idiots... well they'll get a shit final for this dumb scheduling.. Great job kracheik..:facepalm:

- I like delpo so glad to see he'll be moving up to 8 in the rankings after tmrw's win.

It's actually 16 hours but yes the scheduling is stupid and I'd be saying that if Fed played first. It's the same at the masters. Idiotic stuff.

Hmmm...too tough to call. Match-up is a tough one for Delpo, hence the H2H. Also, both times that Delpo beat Fed, the matches went to the distance. This will be a good test of Delpo's form; it's one thing to beat up on Troicki and, to some extent, a mentally weary Berdych (people forget that this was his 7th match in about 8 days), but if Delpo wants to ever win a Slam again, he must get the "signature win" over one of the Top 4 players in a smaller tourney, much like the Nadal win in '09 Miami QF. Either way, I got the match I wanted to see, and I'm just happy to see 5 matches of my favorite guy in one week! Vamos!

02-19-2012, 02:24 AM
Yes this is a great match up for indoor tennis under normal rest conditions for both players. I just don't think it will be a very good match because of the short rest for federer. The same would have gone had delp played a 3 setter ending at 10pm and have to be on court at 2pm the next day. That would have hurt the match with a fresh federer and not made for that great of tennis to watch in my opinion. Rotterdam should have made it a primetime 730 match since it would have been much better tennis in my opinion or at least helped it a little bit to be.

I think delp0 wins this in two easy sets 6-2, 6-3. Pissed that they couldn't have moved the final 5-6 hours later. Kinda weird to have a 2pm final? Would have made it a lot better tennis im sure.

Usually I would pick Fed in 2 or 3.

I think DelPo really wants this more than he has for awhile.
Fed should be in for a very tough time, with confidence DelPo also picks up mental strength.

I expect to see DelPo put more pace on the ball, more than against Berdych.
This won't be the DelPo of the last few months or at the lower energy level he had at the AO.

I always like to see Fed win but want to see DelPo gain some confidence again even more.

DelPo in 2.

You still think Fed is just faking the garbage he is producing at the moment? Look since the start of the year dude. Got beatdowns left right and center.

And plus, del Potro leads their H2H when they're in finals 1-0 :angel:.

Federer's doing the crazy slicing stuff that threw Davydenko off yesterday. If Del Potro can cope with low slices to the backhand side and lots of drop shots, he should be ok.
