    I am full of anticipation for the coming women's final. Germany has the chance to win a gold medal since 1992 when Steffi Graf did it the last time.*

    Absolutely, crushed one at the end of a 20+(well it seemed that long) stroke rally to get the break in the first game!

    Watching them both it's hard to believe that either of them has been having a hard time of it of late. This match so far could have easily been another of their 2013 matches when both were on it.

    Another good thing missed is that this makes the US Open in a few weeks that bit more appetizing since it previously looked like another clear Murray vs Djokovic final.

    Del Potro far too cautious on the backhand (plays it like a Fed return of serve where the aim is just to keep the ball in play) but the serve, forehand and movement all seem very good and as you were.

    Nadal not as aggressive as he should be but playing very well.

    Can't wait for the US Open after tomorrow.

    Damned tennis is going to make me miss the Velodrome! What a game though, improved as its gone along too.

    One thing to add also is that the judge is actually the Asian looking guy from Queens and Wimbledon. Must be a great honor for him.

    I am not ashamed to say that I will be rooting for Del Potro in the final. The fact that Murray and I happen to be compatriots is just not enough for me. There is nothing about him as a tennis player or a person that could motivate me to support him.

    What a match! Agreed, as a fan of the game as a whole i'll be supporting the player who makes my draw drop over my millionth second cousin.



    Del Potro or Nadal for the US Open?

    To be honest, if it was anyone else I'd probably just be neutral but with the way he (Del Potro) plays and his problem with injuries it is difficult not to support him.

    For the US Open I think Delpo has a better chance than Nadal. Didn't get to see the whole match but Nadal looked very beatable from what I saw. I'd still put Murray and Djokovic as joint favourites though.

    I want Del Potro to win. He's come this far. Sad for Nadal but he has a gold already from the doubles match he played yesterday.

    Totally agree. The net has more personality than him.
