Delpo in 4 also.  Unless he turns up in dumb mode and doesn't attack net.

Cold tonight, roof on, will be super slow which will hurt Delpos FH more I think.

Delpo looking the better of the two so far but early days.

And, no, it's not guaranteed.  Not even close.  Doh

Del Potro let that one slip away though... 0-30 up with an easy backhand and he netted it.  And looks to me like he's not approaching the net either.  That's not a good sign.

Commentators seem to think that's a great tactic... for some reason.

So far Delpo the more assured one, even slices better!!

Delpo has a pretty good slice, unlike Nole (even though Nole's slice is also better than it used to be). Slicing to Nole's BH occasionally is not a bad play.

It's criminal though, isn't it?  That they admitted to deliberately slowing the court down to favour certain players.  And the only thing that's happened is the same old...  Although Del Potro is the one at a disadvantage.  That means Wimbledon is now the only slam that isn't super slow.

Mighty boring watching Del Potro hitting what should be 10 winners... to defence returns.  But he's not approaching the net at all again.

He has to know he can't play Djokovic at his own game, right?  Esp on this slow ass surface.

Considering the courts of yesteryear... Yes it is.  They're all slow.  All 4 [There's a reason a 30+ year old Nadal reached the SF at Wimbledon].  And now the tournament officials are openly admitting to rigging them to benefit certain players/.

Oh, god...  McEnroe is at it again...  saying Djok can win another 6 slams.  He must be on another planet.  The odds are astronomical. He hasn't even won this one yet!

Del Po looks shot. Djokovic looks very like his old self, no misses.

Court is playing totally to Djok's strengths.  Hardly any aces for Delpo compared to what it would have been.  And he's gone into this match playing without a game plan... again.  Just like he did v nadal last year.  No net approaches hardly. 

But I guess we can't blame him totally... i've seen so many good forehands get returned now because this is sooo slow.  And it's also boring me.

Djoko is quite comfortable handling Delpo's FH.

So much for the shot clock.  It's not 25 seconds and she didn't even call a foul for Djok going over the 30.

This set is gone for Djoko, he is melting, swearing, he is toast.

If only Delpo can keep it for next 2 sets...

I don't think even Delpo can sustain it too long.  He needs Djoko to play more poorly than he has in that second half of the first set and beginning of the second.

Poor Djokovic, he wants to be loved but it’ll never happen.

And he’s taking way too long on serve. Way too long.

Yes, umpire is being sexist, not punishing Djoko for shotclock delay, he missed it twice at least...

Bit offensive to put a female Umpire on a GS Mens Final, not being sexist or anything, just looks out of its place, about same as they ignored totally Ramos last night and didn't invite him to attend the ceremony.

She can't control the crowd and won't call shot clock fouls.~

And yeah she's only there because of political correctness.

That's why it needs to be taken out of the umpire's hands.  If they go over it should be a forced point penalty.
