I expect something like this too. This might actually be the trickiest match for Delpo in this tournament, facing a big server after a long layoff while still rusty.
He completely owns the two potential finalists from the other half. 6-0 combined H2H against Tipsarevic and Haas, 13-0 in sets, best each of them managed was one 5-7 set, and they've broken Delpo a combined 2 times in 13 sets (one each).
The final should be very straightforward for JMDP, especially if against Haas and the patch isn't very difficult either. This match vs Brands might very well be the trickiest simply because it's the first after a long layoff and against a big server.
