after today's marathon match, d pot won't be winning the bronze and federer is going to get creamed by an angry djokovic........

If Djokovic gets by Murray. The answer is coming soon and should be a good match.

Murray Djokovic is after Serena's match I guess.
Looks like Serena is going to make quick work of it.

swish his fitness sucks for a 23 year old........it's just too bad that a player with that kind of destructive game can't go strong for 4 hours........i also don't think his forehand is really back to what it was in 2009........

Yes, I saw him slowing down some and knew he was running on fumes.
He needs to be in top shape for however long it takes, he can do it but there's no shortcuts.
 
This has been one of my major complaints for a long time now.
 
But he's looking better on grass than he used to.

If he can pick up this type of form of serving, it will help him to save energy in many matches. It has to be one of solutions.

I've never understood why fans of player A need to hate player B, and vice versa. It just seems so weird.

swish i think del potro's forehand is still not at his 2009 level.......not just the power but consistency too is not what it used to be........do you see any hesitation in his forehand swing post-injury? in 2009 he really used to give it a thump with a lot of wrist and power but now it looks like a carefully measured swing with not much wrist and more of the arm.......

You may be right. I've just been watching the streams, they're not good to see clearly.
 
But back in 2009 DP was really hitting the ball. He also strings at a high 70 lbs. That makes the ball slower but more control, don't know if he strung that high before though.
 
I'll be able to tell better when the hard court season comes.
 
One thing I noticed is that he's moving better, earlier this year he was sluggish.

Gutted for Juan, he really deserved this more. He really took it to Roger, was hitting right through him.

Ok...I'm off the floor now and can finally breathe again. I almost had a stroke! I am soooooooo happy that Roger pulled that Atchison out. Congrats to all of DelPo's fans too. He played great!!!

So Roger will win either the silver or the gold on Sunday!

Any confirmation on Federer - it's not on his website.

Pretty much end of the line for the Argie.
well, I wouldn't write him off 100%, but he would need to bring some magic. If Fed (with his average game) is on DP will be doomed.

You are pretty ambitious. You b**ch about Federer at every chance you get and still want people to like you.
what is your problem? I'm not here to be liked but to talk about tennis. grow up. If your impression is that I b!tch at Fed, suit yourself, but that's simply not true (go ask other Fed fans who've been here forever. yes, we joke and poke one another but it's all in a good spirit.  I'm gonna post whatever I feel like. If you don't like it, don't read it.  just because you adore your God Fed, doesn't mean all of us on this forum should do too. I happen to like Djokovic more than Fed.
don't even talk to me, btw, not interested at all.

why, the heck, you even quoted me is a puzzle to me. all I said is that I wouldn't write off DP 100% but that Fed would probably win even with his average game. gee  ..-)


"GOD Fed" really? you just consolidated what I was getting at.....
