Really, Fed is supposed to be in his prime right now. He had time to rest because of the rain. He didn't look tired giving yet another runner up.

major lulz at Feds wife starring down the crowd when cheering for Portro.( a twenty year old)

I just wish Nadal would get totally healthy before playing next time.

Nadal still shouldn't have lost 6-2 in straight matches even if he had an abdominal injury.

Del Potro got lucky. It was a statistical fluke in both cases. 6 straight losses to Federer and now he beats him? It's the law of averages at work. Even the the '98 Bulls would've lost eventually if they kept the same team for ten years.

Law of averages dude. Eventually, somebody is going to beat Federer either way. Federer isn't going to win 7, 9, or 10 straight even at his peak condition. Something will give.

Del Potro also played against unranked nobodies coming up to the quarterfinals, arguably had the easiest rotation since he's young. Andy Murray, Nadal, and Federer, Haas, Roddick, and Djokovic are better players.

Props to Del Potro. Federer had this match but his serve let him down big time. 50% for the match is not good at all. 22 break point chances and converted 5.. He just lost it.

Del Potro was going for it and it came off. Deserved winner

You read one part of my post and ignore the other. Luck is about taking advantage of opportunities at the right time. Ask any elite athlete and they'll tell you luck has everything to do with winning in this context.

I'm just calling that luck is the ability to take advantage of opportunities. Federer converted less than 40% of his first serves on the first 2 sets. He was horrible. Then Del Potro took advantage of that. It's not every day that happens. Clearly, Federer's game was off and Potro went with that.

It's pathetic that I'm calling it as I see it and you choose to throw insults at a person. Try to be civil about this, otherwise you're in for a rude awakening in the real world for the rest of your life.

I doubt you know what luck really is. Good luck, I'm out.

me saying you probably come up with excuses for why you lose is insulting you? no, thats me assuming. if i wanted to insult you, i would. but like you said, its about being civil.

whats really pathetic is you taking away del potros performance from him, and making it a lot less then what it is. he beat two of the top players in the world. were they off their game a little? sure. but thats what sports are about...being your best all of the time.

because del potro won, does that make him better then anyone else? not exactly. he just played better. out-playing your opponent =/= luck

This.

Fed's first serve was just off today, and he had only 13 aces in a five-set match which is nothing for him. Still, he should have put him away in the second set, he blew it. Oh well, I'm sure he'll make the Aus final again next year.

on fast hardcourt del potro is as good as anyone and better than most. Well, I'd put him right behind fed. I'd say better than nadal and the pusher murray. And easily better than the mental midget haas (although I like haas). Better than roddick as well.

This is a match that roger should've won but he missed too many BP's and didn't serve well enough.

Both fed and nadal predicted del potro to become the next #1 after them.

Del potro gave fed hell at the french as well.

Congrats to Del Potro. He earned this win. Beating both Nadal and Federer in a Grand Slam is serious effort.

Federer really lost it with the chair umpire. He's a great champion, but if things aren't going his way, he starts to pout and gets that scowl on his face. This is the first time I've seen him curse an umpire out though.

Enjoyed the part of the match that I got to see.

Everyone kept saying that he was this classy guy. And that since he broke the record we would see his best tennis.

So because he's competitive that means he's not classy? You don't get as good as he is by being happy about it when you're losing. Yet still, in the hundreds of matches he's played, this is the first time I can remember seeing an outburst like this from him. He's never been anything but gracious to opponents after he's lost.

Not really. Plax said the offense was going to get shut down; Brady responded. People get upset because they don't like Brady. So because he smirked when he said it he's an *******.

It doesn't matter how successful someone is-it doesn't give them a right to be unsportsmanslike. Im sure you think that Serana, and Michael Jordon, had a right to act that way did last week too.

But you are wrong, and so are they.

I agree with you.

McEnroe & Co are always talking about how classy and gracious Federer is and I'm thinking 'does he save that for you guys because I never see it'.

Federer is 'classy' when he's winning, but if he starts to lose, prepare for a thumb-sucking fit. I'll be so glad when this guy is no longer making Grand Slam finals.

Jordan has a long history of being a prick. One hell of an athlete, but an absolute prick, so I wasn't surprised by what he said. I barely follow women's tennis unless I'm watching hot Russian blondes grunting and screaming at my TV, so I'm not really in a position to comment on her. But I've never heard of anything like that happening before with her, so I'll give her the benefit of the doubt.

A competitive athlete losing their temper over the course of a career is going to happen. If you've ever played a sport, you'd know this. I'm impressed with how cool he usually manages to stay in the heat of the moment. I don't have his patience. And when he's in a calm and collected state of mine, he's never been anything but gracious, so I see no reason to judge him.
