I don’t mind it personally. These useless Gen Next can do something for once
There has been enough Next Gen. Just players like Dimitrov has choked since making a few late stages in majors. Monfils, Tsonga, Del Porto never really got going. Perhaps Zverev and Tsitsipas and Thiem can take that next step.

I'm a massive del Potro fan, such a charismatic and likeable guy. Sucks he's rarely able to get out there due to recurring injuries... Will always have that memorable us open win over Roger though, no one can take that away from him

Actually think Stan is literally the only small chance, Nadal is playing terribly...and well Fed is flopping sets to nobodies
Nadal playing terribly? Jesus, you're a harsh critic. He's been brilliant all tournament. I agree though that Stan at his absolute best has the best chance of beating Djokovic in his current form.

Injuries have cruelled Delpo's career but he's a great player when he's fit and firing.

Remembered as a young kid when del Potro was hyped as the next big thing after the big 4. Shame injuries destroyed his career really. Thought Stan would reach another gear although he did did win 3 grand slams, which is a pretty big feat in the big 4 era. His one handed backhand was a thing of beauty in his prime.

Hmm, agree to disagree. Lost one set all tournament. I thought he was great last night against a determined Kyrgios. The courts are really slow too, which helps his game.
I’m a huge Nadal fan probably just as much as Novak- actually never care who wins between them. However right now I can’t see it. Hope I’m wrong as I want a competitive final

Have you ever heard of someone saying the first thing that comes into his head ? Playing terribly ? ****ing ridiculous.

Look what happened last year though, Nadal looked unbeatable until Novak made him look pedestrian in the final... and hasn't won a set off him in the last 19 (or is it 20? whatever)
Have zero faith in Nadal beating him on hard courts anymore

I don't think he'd win if they do meet in the final either (although there's still a lot of tennis to be played before we even talk about that match up). To say he's playing terribly though is straight up wrong imo. Anyways, moving on.

It's a shame he is injured again. I wonder if he will try and come back or retire?
