Del Potro just doesn't have the endurance of the top players, either mentally or physically.

Post match interview he mentioned his wrist again.

That must have been pretty scary for everyone.  I was once in a supermarket when all the lights failed.  Fortunately they got a backup system going very quickly which at least allowed shoppers to leave safely, after paying for their goods, of course.  Me - I just dumped my basket and headed straight for the exit!





I had the same thing last year. Thought it was quite exciting personally. Bit of a pain for those currently on the checkouts though I imagine - they were still rebooting the tills when I went to pay about five minutes later.

Funny how he didn't mention the wrist when he was winning matches.

Disappointed in the Delpo result last night. It's a match he definitely let slip away, after serving for the first set (and having chances to win it 6-2). Poor effort from him in the second set as well. Though Kamke deserves a lot of credit for taking his chances to beat a top player - very good tennis from him.

Fatigue was probably a factor, and Delpo's fitness isn't that great either - he's definitely a long way below the top 4 in that regard. I wasn't expecting him to do as well here, but didn't expect such an early exit (I thought he'd lose in the QF). I don't think the wrist would've been a big issue in the match - he had the same problem last week but was still able to do really well.

The wrist was mentioned throughout Indian Wells actually...

In 2003 we had a massive power outage which affected the Northeast and Mid West. Over 55 milllion people were affected. We had no power for 2 days, but what was really scary was finding out our cell-phones wouldn't work, you had to have a land-line. Also, it originated in New York so initially there were rumours abound that it may be a terrorist attack (post 9/11 just 2 years earlier) but you couldn't find out anything because no phone/computer/tv. It was just like you see in the movies. You don't realise how much you rely on electricity until you don't have it.

I haven't seen any of the matches, so thanks for the info folks.

DelPo sounds like he needs some rest. Hope he gets his wrist sorted soon.

I actually didn't hear about Delpo mentioning his wrist much-according to a journo on twitter, he wouldn't cite fatigue as a reason for the loss,and said he hadn't had any wrist pain during the day either.He said he just a bad day and Kamke played really well.

So Del Po is out but I guess that's no longer news. I caught a few games of the 2nd set and he seemed he pretty much gave at the point and only went for shots that were within his striking zone. Otherwise he was all over the place and also, didn't move well at all. I don't think he's recovered from the last tournament fully well yet. Will be interesting to see how he fares come clay season which seems to suit his game very well.

And Rosol seems to be on a two year long recovery period. Somehow managed to win only one game off Nole. And Nole is always brilliant against these sort of players. Bit of a show off here I'd day.

My TV 'coverage' doesn't start until Monday.  Rolling Eyes
Why bother paying extra for sports channels, I ask?

We do have coverage starting from today at 3:30pm this afternoon; I am not sure though if that will be live or they will just start from two hours behind.

And yet he seemed fine when he was beating Murray and Djokovic. But the minute he loses, out come the excuses. His wrist clearly isn't as bad as his fans would like to make out.
