Looks solid, aggressive and serving great.

Looks awkward hitting backhands close to his body - like his
fine-adjustment footwork isn't exactly great (although that's kinda expected
for tall guys).

I don't expect he can beat Fed, but he does have great balance,
footwork and racquet preparation for
such a big guy. I thought his stroke production, especially on the
forehand, was way better than Cilic, who
just seems to slap at the ball and looks very hit-or-miss.

Cilic does have a better serve though, and that's the area in which
DelPo absolutely must improve to have any
chance of winning a big title.

I hope so. He's my winner pick ;-)

I have seen him a couple of times. Both were the sort of match where both
players were hitting the ball so hard that most shots were unreturnable,
but every now and then there would be a long rally. It may be a wrong
impression, but I was barracking against Del Potro because he seems to be
a dickhead towards the ballkids. Most other players give them some
respect. Roddick seems to be respectful of them, for example.

My fault, I thought he is in Nadal's half :)

But he is playing and serving well, and won't lose easily.

Really? I just saw here and there on the game, but to me he didn't seem
that solid from the baseline. Cilic played awfully. The match seemed
like one of the worst in the tournament. Lots of errors from both.

I cannot see that Del Potro can make any trouble for Federer. It will be
a pretty comfortable win, I think.

PS.
