But Del Po beat Djokovic this year

I think Del Potro poses more of a threat to the big players, because he had more weapons. Ferrer is a fighter, but as shown today, thats not enough when facing big players most of the time. Of course, he'll end up with the odd match where he'll play really well and grab the win. But overall Del Potro poses mroe of a threat imo

I disagree with that.

As others have said. Ferrer works incredibly hard, but he doesn't have the weapons to pose a threat to the top players in a big tournament like this. Del Potro does. I feel Del Potro is so very nearly back to his best and he's currently in the process of bridging the gap between the top three (and Nadal) and the rest, he will be the next to join the top group and really challenge for the bigger titles.

He has big, big weapons he can use to beat the top players. At the moment, the majority of the time they are that little bit better, but give it another half a year and I think he'll be a huge threat. He's still the most likely guy to cause a big upset in a semi final match. While Ferrer did beat Del Potro, I think Potro is more likely to beat a Murray, Djokovic or Federer because unlike Ferrer who brings his best game every single match he plays, Potro does have the ability to raise his game and change things up for the matches against the top three/four. That's the difference I think.

Fair enough but you have to look at the head to head as well. Del Potro doesn't have a good record against Djokovic. Ferrer doesn't have a good record against Djokovic as well but he has more of a chance of beating Djokovic imo.
Djokovic is a great defensive player and is one of the best counterpunchers in the game so he is able to counter Del Potro power's shots easily. Del Potro struggles against those type of players like Djokovic.

Ferrer has beaten Djokovic last year in London quite comfortably as well so I think he has a better chance. It is just my opinion anyway.

Yeah, i see where you are coming from Samoon. But i still feel that it will be Del Po in the semis. I think he'll win in 2 today, and perhaps beat Federer in 3. I think Ferrer will beat Tipsarevic, but in 3 sets, so Del Potro heads through on sets won/lost.

Thats my prediction anyway

Del Po having to beat Federer is the key. He did it in Basel but it won't be easy. I think it all depends on Fed's mindset. Ferrer will beat Tipsy, Mr. Making up the Numbers like Del Po will tonight. They'll both beat him in straight sets but I don't know if Del Po will beat Fed. He can, and I can seeing it going to three either way. Once Tipsy's out tonight he won't give a toss against Ferrer who'll be out for blood to win in two while Tipsy's mind's already on the plane home.

If I was putting money on who'll advance it'd be Ferrer.

I saw this on a forum, and i thought we could do it here.

Name your top 10 favourite players (Both mens and womens). Each position will give points like this. You can use retired players too if you want

1. 10pts
2. 9pts
3. 8pts
4. 7pts
5. 6pts
6. 5pts
7. 4pts
8. 3pts
9. 2pts
10. 1pts

And we can see who WF's favourite players are. Would be great if everyone who posts in thsi thread takes part. Doesn't take that long really, especially because it's both mens and womens

Mine...

1. Jo Wilfried Tsonga
2. Juan Martin Del Potro
3. Yaroslava Shvedova
4. Pete Sampras
5. Kei Nishikori
6. Roger Federer
7. Michael Llodra
8. Serena Williams
9. David Ferrer
10. Marat Safin

Federer not playing well, but still gets the straight sets win. Good stuff . Hopefully Del Potro wins tonight, and sets up a very interesting match between himself and Federer (Which i've got tickets for. Bought tickets for the afternoon and night session this Saturday )

On yesterdays matches. Murray vs Djokovic was okay, but nothing more. Djokovic won because he's far superior mentally than Murray. Murray played well in the first set, but Djokovic was better the rest of the time. Djokovic is the best player in the world atm, contrary to what some Murray fans may think.

Tsonga was bad yet again. That 3rd set was terrible. The 2nd set was good from Tsonga, and i thought he could go onto the win from there, but he imploded in the 3rd.

As for the list thing...

1. Juan Martin Del Potro- My clear favourite. Love Juan.
2. Pete Sampras- My Childhood hero
3. Roger Federer- The greatest. A joy to watch
4. Angelique Kerber- There's something about her i really like. Find myself routing for her a lot
5. Jo Wilfried Tsonga- Brings a great attacking game. A bit annoying at times though with his stupid errors
6. Serena Williams- Another player i grew up watching. Was my favourite womens player for a while
7. David Ferrer- His never give up attitude, and the way he fights for points is great
8. Yaroslava Shvedova- Thanks to nazz really. Easy player to like as she's got a nice game.
9. Robin Soderling- When is he coming back
10. Victoria Azarenka- taken to her a lot more over the past year

Normally, Sharapova would be on the list, but i've started to like Azarenka more and more. Sharapova my number 11 though
