I watched Del Potro for the first time yesterday, simply fabulous. I have not liked Nadal so much which made this very exciting to watch.

I have loved Federrer play and applauded Murray on his rise but always backed Federrer. But tonite, its going to be difficult to chose sides between Fedex and Del Potro!!!!

Federer is one of the greatest ever while Del Potro has all the weapons to be a great player one day. It'll be very interesting match and lot of it will depend on the Potro's passing shots on the run as Fedrer will close in on the net many times.

I seriously doubt whether Nadal was fully fit ... He never looked like winning the match. Had he been fit it would have yielded a different result.

The type of game Nadal has (hardcore baseliner), sooner or later he will get burnt down no matter how brilliant he is. Same happened to Courier, Muster, Kuerten and Hewitt. It's the Serve' N 'Volleyers who continue to play till long time without being getting burnt. Federer is just about perfect.

Federer beaten by Tsonga in a five-setter at Wimbledon (which incidentally was not good to see for me at least). He was leading 2 sets to none and Tsonga came back to win the last three. I was hoping Federer would win this year's Wimbledon. More than the loss, to whom and how he lost was more dissapointing.

Tsonga played unbelievable tennis and he thought so too. Roger Federer played well but Tsonga's serve was quite lethal and seemed impregnable. Nadal doesnt seem invincible and the semifinals might be a keen contest with Murray having a slight edge IMO.

I will root for Nadal and Tsonga for a final clash

Hey, you can definitely start at 20. Start looking at videos online and tennis that is aired on television. There are plenty of learning videos on youtube. If you are genuinely interested, you can learn pretty fast this way.

I started off like this 6 years ago, and never took any tennis lessons.

You may find this stupid, but film yourself while you are playing and see it later on. Its a great way to find out your mistakes. And then, you can easily correct them later!

Let us know how it goes!
