[J.Del Potro +240 - R.Nadal -263] [Risk 10.41u - to Win 25.00u]

DP is finally playing to his potential on grass, Rafa hasn't broke a sweat in his first four which isn't good for him on this surface. 

The power of DP & sudden increase of skill will neutralise Rafa's game on grass and he won't recover, Juan looks fit his body passed the test against Simon which he would of probably lost in the past.

Rafa's body won't cope tomorrow, going big on this enjoy it because you know it makes sense if you know anything about the game.

good luck MPM with this dog, however I just don't see it happening...Rafa at only -250 on some books is great price to parlay it with something else for even or + odds in my opinion...Delpo having to play 3 days in a row vs the #1 pitbull grinder is a recipe for disaster, and now that the courts are chewed up, it's playing a lot more like clay than a true grass court.

I am with you on Delpo.. Didn't take the bet yet, but strongly rooting for Delpo vs Djoker semis which will be epic.

Rafa dont belong on grass against top players though he won few slams here.

Delpo is much better ground strokes player than Rafa faced so far in Wimbledon this year and sudden rise in competitiveness will doom Rafa. When Delpo is healthy he is like a machine in returns and has good serve and tremendous forehand unlike Rafa who relies entirely on defense and others to make mistakes. Delpo is one of the very few guys that does less number of unforced errors.

Packer  some valid points but you hit the nail on the head - "DP playing 3 days in a row" whens the last time he shown this much stamina? His body is holding up look at it from another point of view and then you realise how scary of a player he is when fit.

Sports  completely agree and I think Rafa has always been overrated on grass, there will be a up turn in skill when he faces DP will he be quick to come out of the blocks? I doubt it...DP and Joker wow would be awesome.

Doggs  5 sets I can see that happening, but much safer making a side with DP brother.

Should be fun fellas enjoy it

I took Delpo as well, what a gut shot the last game was. Delpo finally breaks Nadal for first time all game after practically no chances of doing so all game in 2nd set ANDDDDDDDDDDDD chokes away his next serve to take the set. you can't be that undisciplined against Nadal. 5-5. Not good. Should have been a stress free 6-4 2nd set win.

Yep nadal already up a mini break in the tiebreak set. game over. that choker Del Po should have been able to finish him off on his own serve after beating him on his own serve on literally every other game in this match.

Nadal double faulted on set point up 6-5 in 2nd set. 6-6. hopefully del po can steal it. this set is a toss up now. winning this one would be big for del po regaining his momentum after screwing up his own serve.

NICE. big comeback. 1-1 now boys

I didnt see Nadal holding serves this easily. 

If only Delpo has good drop shot.. they both are hitting from baselines like crazy. Nadal will win that race if the match keeps going like that.

Delpo started struggling physically and lost the serve in 4th.

Hope he takes a medical timeout or whatever and close the 5th set strong.
