I had a feeling Del Potro was going to win that one. Murray hadn't been playing well all week, and the surface doesn't seem to suit him well. After the first set his serve really started to let him down, that along with making a load of unforced errors. Really great win for Del Potro though, I think he has a chance against Djokovic today too, although I still don't think he's obviously favourite for the match.

I predict another Berdych/Djokovic final.

I don't want to try and sound too negative here but as much I would love to see Del Potro beat Djokovic, I honestly think he doesn't really stand much of a chance. I mean, look at the H2H, it is 8-2 in favour of Djokovic and Djokovic has won their last 4 meetings. I know Del Potro just came off from a impressive victory against Murray and that win will obviously boost his confidence but this is Djokovic we are talking about. He is on fire so far this year and just destroyed Tsonga in his previous match.

A 2 sets victory for Djokovic I'm afraid.

As for the other match, in this tournament Nadal has been playing at a level I didn't expect at all, he's been really good. was really surprised when he beat Federer comfortably. However, Berdych has been playing really well recently too, so I think he will give Nadal more of a challenge than Federer has so I expect this match to be very close one.

A 3 sets victory for Nadal.

I don't think Del Potro WILL win, but I do think he's in with a chance. Up until the quarter finals Djokovic hasn't exactly been on fire in this tournament. Del Potro's head to head wasn't too great going into his match with Murray but he got the win. I think he's capable of winning it, but I don't think he will.

Maybe he wasn't playing that good in the ealier rounds but still he's been impressive. And it's not really about the Head to head but mainly about how the matches normally turned out. Djokovic wins it with not really much trouble. If he faced Federer, I would definitely give him a chance because although the head to head is 13-4 in favour of Federer, their matches are normally very close.

As for the head to head with Murray, it's true that Potro's record against Murray isn't great but to tbf, the last time they faced was in 2009 which was a long time ago, so yeah

Del Potro can't hit through Djokovic, especially on these slow courts. Djokovic also ahs a better FH than Murray so is less likely to make errors from that side.

Djokovic in 2 or 3 sets. I think it will be a close match though.

I think Nadal will beat Berdych in 3 as well Samoon. Nadal always has an edge against Berdych, but with Berdych's form it will be a tough one for Rafa

Rafa has disposed 3 top 10 opponents in straights since his return.

Poor match overall against Berdych who missed a chance in that 2nd set.

Djokovic will win this match, but hopefully Del Po makes it a good watch
