Good match between Djokovic and Del Potro for the first two sets. I really thought Potro was going to come through after going a break up in the second, unfortunately he ran out of steam though. Good signs for him for the future, he obviously has the game he just needs to be able to maintain it, and reach that extra level to pull through once he starts to get tired. I think he can do it though, I reckon 2013 will be a big year for Del Potro.
Djokovic when he's down in the scoreline though is just so difficult. Just when you think it looks like he's lost his edge, he suddenly gets it back again and suddenly becomes unplayable, it's fairly amazing and that's why he's world number one. He'll be difficult to beat in the final, wether it's Murray or Federer. I think Murray has more of a chance though.
As for Federer/Murray. I think Murray comes through, I think his level has rose since he won the Olympics and Federer's has stalled, or possibly even declined since Wimbledon. Murray is more in form than Federer and Fed will need to raise his level a great deal to match Murray today. He has the capeability though, and he can suddenly turn it on when he needs to, so it could be very interesting. I'm going for Murray in three though to make another Murray/Djokovic final.
Marking for: John Morrison, Randy Orton, CM Punk, Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes and Jack Swagger.
