re: Tennis Discussion Thread
Djokovic whooped Del-Po not so long ago in straight sets in quick time on a hard court. I'm not getting my hopes up for him, and as much as I want Del Potro to win, I'm sure Djokovic will win comfortably, maybe in 4.
Ferrer should win the other match but Tipsarevic is capable of causing an upset if he's on it. There's more chance of an upset there than with Del Potro.
I was stunned to see Berdych destroy Federer like that last night but he's done it before at Wimbledon a couple of years ago, and then went onto beat Djokovic easily too. Murray can't afford to give away a similar start against Berdych that he did against Cilic. I've seen people say today that Murray's got it in the bag now Federer's out. I'm sure those people didn't see how well Berdych played last night and has for the tournament, because if anyone thinks it's going to be anything near easy for Murray they could be in for a shock. Hopefully not. I'm rooting for Murray now, and if he can cause the upset, Del-Po too. It'd be great to see semis without any of the top 2 & Rafa. It's the first time in over 7 years one of Federer & Nadal haven't been in a slam semi. It could be fitting but I doubt it.
