Rublev was that bad, as many of us feared would be the case.His ball bashing is what I call Federer Syndrome.  There are always a few people at the local clubs who fall victim to it.  Believing hitting hard and going for everything is how Federer became Federer.

Still think Delpo is a walk over, people?

Not really. This is what I feared. Thiem would not be anywhere near this position.

I don't know which matches some of you are watching, but this has always been a worry of mine.  And Nadal has sailed through with his usual SHIT FUCKING EASY draw.  It's so annoying.

Exactly.  On Saturday I was going to see Rublev expecting I would be rooting for him.  But after a few minutes watching him, I could not bring myself to do so.  He just bashes the ball like there is no tomorrow.  There is no rhyme or reason.  He is not even going for the winners so much, just pure unadulterated ball bashing.  It is still good to have him, he is a little different than some other guys so will provide a little bit of contrast, but he is not very watchable for me at all.
Rubi normally does not play like he did last night.

As Tenez said, he couldn't time Nadal's spinny ball so shanked many and played safely i.e. short balls or down the middle.

I felt sorry for him...hope he learns A LOT from this match as he has undeniable talent but really needs to put in a lot of work into the rest of his game and esp his head.

They made everything possible for it for years (putting Nole on Fed's side every single time and bigging the balls)....this year they have added more sand and put them on the same draw to increase the chances...

I don't think Fed is fit enough to play Nadal.
Yess...but Federer is Federer.
Fighting like a lion.

I totally adore it.

This is such a tiring court. Nothing like AO.

It makes Fed look older than he is.

Almost like he is playing with that old racquet.

However irrational it may sound, my hope lies in Fad's heart.

It's got nothing to do with the court. Federer has come up against one of the best players. Someone you thought was gonna be easy and I knew wasn't going to be

Indeed, the ball really checks and doesn't skid on this court.

That's because Del Potro is hammering the best forehands in the game at him.

And that's that...

The only pleasure left now is ABN.

USO is not even a show, it's a circus.
Enjoy!

Oh well, it is what it is.  Well done Delpo.  Fed was a poor imitation of Fed from Indian Wells.  He played one decent match this tournament - vs Lopez.  The rest of it was mediocre (vs Kohli) to poor to horrible.

I did not think Delpo was all that good either - except of course for his FH which (although missing a bit) managed to cause a lot of damage.

I don't think so, but coming from you, I expect nothing less.
You'd better all listen and learn.
If you don't like my style I recommend Tenez. He is more patient and knowledgeable.

I knew that Del Potro was a much tougher prospect than Thiem.  Unlike you.  So ask me again who is clueless, NITB.  You rattle on about the court... have you seen how good Del Potro is playing?  And he's an attacking player.  One of the most attacking players on tour. 

But, yeah... Federer preferred to play Del Potro... remember?

Del Potro hitting winners left and right... first serve in % something like 80% for huge periods.  100% of 1st serves won in 4th set when I looked.

That's too bad, I went to bed at 5-5 1st because it was too late & thought Federer would come through. Sounds like he could have too, with 4 set points in the 4th.

Ah well, 2 Slams it is and 8th Wimbledon. On a scale of 1-10 on expectations it's still a 427. #1 will be tough now unless JMDP helps out.

Hopefully Fed takes a break now and returns at  the AO

This USO: like i said, the TD's get what they deserve. And that's not a Fedal semi

He says in his interview he is not changing the schedule.

Right now I so look forward to seeing him play again.
Really, everything post Wimbledon 2016 is a bonus to me.

My take:  It should depend on whether or not he believes he may have further slams in him.  If so, then he should do whatever maximizes his chances of scoring more slams - and if that means taking the rest of the year off, that is what he should do.  Forget all smaller tournaments, and even potential No1 is not worth it.  If, on the other hand, he does not think he can win more slams, then he should just play wherever he feels like and whenever he feels like it.
