DelPo deserves it.

Don't want Nole winning Bronze again :sad:

Del Potro deserves it the way Djokovic folded, but I see Novak winning in 3.

Delpo might just be more motivated than Djokovic who already has a bronze and probably doesn't care that much for another one.

Bronze-match is best of 3? That's silly.

Anyway, Djoko in 2.

I felt really bad for JMDP today and although he isn't my cup of tea I hope he gets on the podium.

Hopefully Nole tanks this. He needs to be fit for the US Open series.

Novak will probably tank this and i think he will definitely play Toronto now.

Delpo deserves this and probably would have beaten Novak either way.

If he plays as well as he did today, Delpo in two. :)

Del Potro is dead tired, Djokovic will take this comfortably.

Delpo should recover, I mean, he's got saturday off

08-03-2012, 09:15 PM
wait, DelPo deserves it because of what exactly? 'cause he had epic match vs Fed and Djoker didn't?
Guys, judge on who deserves it more after the match between them is over...

nole in 2, but he should tank :/

IOFH

Why should Djokovic tank? I'm not following, he should tank to save a minimal amount of energy in not trying his best in a BO3 to win bronze, so that he could play Toronto? That will never happen, certainly Djokovic of all people wants to win a medal to his country.

If Djokovic wins a medal he is forced by contract to go back to Serbia to present it to his people...... so really I think the best option for him would be to lose the match against Del Potro... Honestly Juan is in better form and probably will win irregardless BUT Novak will almost 100% be forced to opt out of Toronto if he wins the medal. There will just be no time to travel to Serbia and then to Canada and be prepared for a match. Djokovic loses 1000 points if he does not play Toronto and his ranking thereon begins to get worrisome lower esspecially if he preformed subpar at the US OPEN.

I think Del Potro will win this match because he is in better form currently but it is really the best option for the both of them anyway

It depends if Delpo recovers fully in time. He has a shot if he does.

Well it's pretty sad and weird if he has to make a choice like that, and they can't work out a latter time for him going to Serbia. I believe DP will not play as well as he did today and Djokovic played a very good match today and still is a clear favourite to win bronze.

Why should Nole tank?

An Olympic bronze medal is better than sweet FA. What would all of us do to have one?

Mark Lenders
08-03-2012, 09:57 PM
Nole in 2, I'm afraid. If Del Potro can somehow recover, not only physically but mentally too, he obviously has a shot.

This is a great matchup when both players are playing well.

It really depends on Novak. If he starts playing like vs Roddick, Nole in 2. If he doesn't want to go to Serbia before Canada and is not motivated bcs he alrdy has a bronze medal, then Delpo in tight 2

He cannot play like vs Roddick because Delpo's game causes him far more trouble than Roddick's declining serve and underpowered shot. No way Delpo is letting Nole just walk all over him like Roddick did, even if he is tired after today's marathon.

Del Goatro in 2. Nole is tired, and uninspired. He will want to tank but Goatro will blow him off the court.

If there's any justice in the universe => Delpo takes the bronze medal.

i'll piss my pants with laughter if Delpo wins this

watched his mixed doubles and the guy could hardly motivate himself to hit a serve

Crossing my fingers for del Potro. Bouncing back from today would be the push he needs for the rest of the season.

Straight sets for Novak.

I want delpo to take it after he fought his life out against federer. He definitely deserves it.
But realistically, he is gonna be exhausted and that won't be enough to stop nole who went out like a mug against murray.
So, nole in 2 (hoping, 3).

Brick Top

Delpo wont recover for this. Maybe he will win first set...

MuzzahLovah

Djokovic is weakest on grass, but so is Del Po, and looking at their H2H and amount of match time they've played(don't forget Del Po lost a mixed doubles match right after he lost that Fed match), I see a straight sets wins for Djokovic.

MuzzahLovah
08-04-2012, 01:33 AM
Also, Del Po doesn't slice very effectively, which was Murray employed to get the crucial break at the end of the first set against Nole.

Del Potro was definitely the better player in the semi finals, but you cant ignore their match up issues. I must admit that Ive never watched a match between these 2, but I can imagine that Del Potro will be frustrated by Djoko's consistency and will probably start to miss. This however, will come in the end of the first set or in the beginning of the second. If Delpo can overcome this- He is gonna win. I dont think he will, Djokovic in 2 easy sets or in 3 momentum-swinging ones.

Sanya
08-04-2012, 09:12 AM
I only hope that Nole`ll win it easy without any chance for Delpo as I don`t believe in HMDP here. :sad: Simply it`d be too much to lose two close battles for him the same weak. 6-2, 6-3 Djokovic.

What contract?

There is something I think about if you win medal, you have to return to Belgrade immediately, supposedly everybody signed that, not sure what's the point though. :p Anyway, probably they will be both deflated after the losses, don't think it's going to be a pretty match.

Sadly Djokovic in 2 :sad: Delpo deserves it so much more.

08-04-2012, 11:41 AM
The scenario that I didn't want to happen is now going to be played out. :(

2 of my favourites having to battle each other (just like Djoker vs. Blake in 2008), and only 1 of them will get to stand on the podium and leave with a bronze medal. Wished they both could receive a bronze medal, the loser is going to be so gutted.

Anyways I think Djoker in 2, this match-up is in his favour.

Was expecting to see this match on center but the schedule says they start with women`s doubles first and then men`s final on center followed by mixed final.
And this match is first on court 1 followed by rest of bronze medal matches.

It makes sense to have ALL gold medal matches on CC.
Andy will play twice on CC tomorrow. Nice.

Mark Lenders

This is my favorite matchup in tennis. Not only because the shotmaking is fantastic from both sides (see RG last year for proof, especially first two sets), but also because these two are genuinely great friends and keep applauding each other's great shots, it's great to watch.

Hope both have overcome the disappointment of losing the semis, especially Delpo who lost in particularly heartbreaking fashion, and give us a great match tomorrow.

Hope Delpo wins but good luck to both.

I love these two but only one can win. Novak will want revenge for davis cup. Delp had a tough long match and played doubles after so I think Novak will take this.

In all combat Olympic sports you have 2 bronze medals. Tennis should have 2 bronze medals as well. I wish both Delpo and Nole could win.
