Lugburz & Euroka1 - I give up.  DF is a complete bast*ard!  But he was hardly abusive to the umpire.  He was simply "robust" in his query!   :rofl_2:  So he is still a nice chap too, in a challenging sort of way!

Let's forgive his horribleness, because he does indeed delight with his tennis!   :)

Glad Ferrer came through. Even if Tipsy had on the match, he would not have been in any kind of shape to play the SF. Now if we could have a 5 setter tonight!!!!

Djokovic put the first Del Potro serve under pressure, and holding easily.  Early days, and I hope it is well contested, Dallas.

Good to see Delpo going for his serve for a change. I haven't seen 135 in a long time.

I've often noticed that Del Potro takes most if not all of the first set to get into the game.

Amazing!

Delpo's got to be on fumes.

People really think Nole isn't up to the task any more or just Shank?

I guess Nole is back on his "gluten free diet" :\

If only had any sort of a net game to shorten the court. This is looking like a Federer-Nadal match.
I lost the will to live mid way through the first set!

Or a Nole-Nadal match, or a Nole-Murray match, or a Murray-Nadal match...

There is a big difference between Federer/Nadal and those other 3 matches. Federer does actually try to be an aggressor in the match but gets caught up in trying to hit through a backboard which Delpo is trying to do and is losing.
The other 3 matches, it is backboard vs backboard with Nole/Murray being the worst with the cat-mouse tennis and who can hit the worst drop shot  contest.:yuk:
