This is a horrible match-up for Porto, though. Fed looks as
comfortable out there as he does against Ancic.

Porto doesn't have big weapons to hurt him and then can't cover the
court nearly well enough. That kind of
match-up can get ugly (or pretty, depending on your perspective) in a
hurry.

Something makes me think that neither Groundie or
TT has ever played competitive tennis... ?

His opponent has nothing to do with it, of course. :)
You're more *predictable* than even the Lisper.
But do keep up the good work...

Exactly - it's pretty much vox populi that Del Potro should work on his serve
and footwork.

It's not just his footwork; it's his initial response. His shot recognition and
initial reaction are among the slowest I've ever seen for a top-10 player.

Del Potro is wearing his lead lined shoes today, moving around the court
like a dumper truck.

Have to agree on that. Roger is playing well though. Ponyboy seems to
lack weapons and can't handle slice very well at the moment.

Let's see if Federer's level drops in the 2nd set as it often does. Too
bad Ponyboy can't hurt him with this kind of game.

Ponyboy sure is UGLY though.

For a minute there I thought Fed was playing Nadal.

Yes he is playing quite well.
Except for the few times he's hit overheads and passing shots right
back to Del Potro (and lost all those points).
