I wouldn't mind that final at all, although as a JMDP fan I'm not very eager to see Federer on the other side of the net after the beatdowns Juan has received since returning from his wrist surgery

Realistically speaking though, don't think JMDP is ready to make it to the finals this year. Federer definitely could and even should, though.

Yeah, I feel badly for Mr. del Potro. But he's only 23 still. Time is on his side. I think he may have overplayed a bit earlier this year at the wrong time and weakened himself (similar to John Isner). He's far better in my opinion when he is relatively fresh. Hopefully he is resting that knee and will be good for the US Open series events.

I agree with you fully. He had to play a lot to build his ranking up, though. I think he will finish this season as #5 - he's #6 in the race, and should definitely gain 1200+ points on Ferrer during the American hardcourt season + indoors, while keeping the guys behind him at bay. Starting next year as #5 (or 6 at worst), he should be ready to become a real contender.

He'll do fine in the US hardcourts for sure, should make a few semis at least provided he doesn't keep drawing Federer (his bete noire at the moment) in every tournament.

it would be 100% at RG if he had not fucked up his knees in 2009.


check out fed`s stats at wimbledon. it is better than 90% batting average there.

Nadal's insanely great at RG.

Federer at Wimbledon or the US Open is not quite as insanely great. Don't forget the US Open hasn't been played yet.
If Federer were to win there, his stats there would be: (68-7|90.7%|6|1).
Two majors on different surfaces, over 90% and 13 majors might also qualify as insanely great.

No wonder Fed insisted to play Halle. LOL. The rankings more by 75 points. All fixed and calculated by tactician Roger Federer.

Arrrr... I still can't believe he lost that final.

I mean, I like Tommy, I support him so much, but I wanted Roger to win that tournament.

Damn! Roger... Why!?! He was playing amazingly well vs Youzhny.

Kudos to Haas, he played really well, but still... I wanted that one.


Sorry CD, I know you told me to move on, but it's difficult.

I highly doubt Roger will win the US Open. He needs things to go right for him. Novak is awfully tough to beat on hard courts and all those match points are hard to forget. But if Roger is #1, he can avoid Novak till the final, if Nadal or Murray get upset, he might reach the final without having to go through them. I'd like Roger to finish with at least 18 slams. I don't know about 20. That seems too many at this point
