Juan Martin Del Potro v Rafael Nadal, Kei Nishikori v Andy Murray; Rio Olympics Men’s SF Picks And Pans

It’s a fantastic final four at the 2016 Rio Olympics men’s tennis singles event. Top seed Novak Djokovic is absent, yes, but look who takes his spot in the men’s semifinals? His conqueror Juan Martin del Potro! So that works for me!

And Delpo meets Rafael Nadal while in the other semifinal it’s defending gold medalist Andy Murray against Kei Nishikori.

Incredibly today, all four players had to battle to make the semifinals. This is once-every-four-years kind of stuff.

In what looked to be the biggest mismatch turned out to be quite the contest as American Steve Johnson actually was up a break on a scratchy Murray in the third 4-3 before the Brit came back to win it in a tight one 6-0, 4-6, 7-6(2) saving more break chances late in that final set.

That’s two comebacks for Murray after Fognini also had him by a break in the third. But winners win, right?

Del Potro, who’s been really finding his mark this week, edged the tricky Roberto Bautista Agut 7-5, 7-6(4). The Argentine was once against blasting away from the forehand with 27 winners to lead him to victory. Lost a break n the second but hung on.

“I cannot believe the moment, the crowd makes me cry in every match,” Del Potro said. “I don’t want to think about Rafa yet, he is the next opponent and he is the favourite to get to the final and get the medal, but I am so glad with my success and I will try to be 100%.”

And while that was going on, Nadal had dropped the first set to Brazil’s Thomaz Bellucci before course-correcting for a 2-6, 6-4, 6-2 victory and his 800th overall career match win.

“Rafa is a great player and he deserves to be in the semis but for me it was very special, maybe one of the most special matches in my life,” said Bellucci who has now lost 15 straight to Top 5 players.

“In the beginning for me was so difficult to be in rhythm,” said Nadal. “The atmosphere was tough too, but at the same time I enjoyed it. I think I managed well to come back at the beginning of the second set from some tough situations and then in the third I think I played well.”

The best match of the day on paper turned out to be just that as Nishikori fought off a match point to beat Gael Monfils 7-6(4), 4-6, 7-6(6) to reach the semifinals.

“I think I played a little more aggressive and thought I had nothing to lose at 6-3 down,” Nishikori said of saving the matchpoint. “My concentration wasn’t there at the beginning of the tiebreak so I tried to play a little more aggressive. I close my eyes and tried to come in two points in a row.”

See, closing your eyes does work in tennis!

Luckily, all four will have a day off before the gold medal match. But, oh wait, they won’t because the washout Wednesday has eliminated that off day which was to come Saturday.

So tired, and battered the four enter the semifinals…

Kei Nishikori v Andy Murray
Of the foursome, I have to peg Murray as the freshest. And he’s got the gold, he’s in form, the slow courts should suit him. And head-to-head in this one it’s been all Murray leading 6-1. But their most recent meeting was a tough 5-setter in Davis Cup earlier this year.

However, after the Monfils match and with all the tennis he played in Toronto, I just don’t see Nishikori being at 100%. And we know he’s not the toughest guy out there anyway.

“You know, I was a little bit lucky at the end of the games, and I am very happy to win today, but I think the tournament is starting now,” Nishikori said today. “For the medal I think I have to play well against Andy – someone I haven’t beat for long time. I have to play much better tennis for sure to beat him.”

Then again, Murray wasn’t great today, but I expect him to do just enough to get through. As the head-to-head indicates, he’s just the better player and he’s done this before.

“It feels special because we don’t get this opportunity all of the time, competing trying to win medals for your country add to the pressure obviously,” Murray said. “For me it has nothing to do with having won the gold in London. It’s trying to win more medals for your country and your team and I give my best shot to do that.”
The Pick: Murray in 3

Juan Martin Del Potro v Rafael Nadal
Dream semifinal? Maybe not for the tennis world as a whole but in South America it probably is.

The left wrist bowl? You bet!

Nadal leads this one 8-4 and they haven’t played in almost three years (it’s 4-4 on hardcourts). After all the tennis and after winning the gold in doubles, I just have to think Nadal is spent and content with his result. And Del Potro, playing in front of what should be many of his fans, has the motivation and the game to damage Nadal. We know that, we’ve seen it before.

“Being at the semifinals is something that a few days ago I wouldn’t even imagine,” Nadal said. “I don’t even know how things are going so well, because I didn’t do any preparation for the tournament, but I’m playing with a great attitude, fighting hard for each point, fighting to the end.”

And Rafa is playing with that great attitude, but if he drops balls short like he did today against Bellucci, Del Potro will punish him just like Bellucci did. Except Del Potro won’t fold.

Rafa got his gold, now it’s Del Potro’s turn. And I know Rafa’s never lost in the Olympics, but gosh, that Delpo forehand when it’s on…and it’s on.
The Pick: Del Potro in 2

Could the opposite happen? Absolutely. As I said, Murray wasn’t great and you can never, ever count out Rafa. But based on form and time spent on court, I have to think that catches up and it’s Murray and Delpo for the gold.

And don’t forget, there’s a bronze match as well on Sunday, so Rafa still has two more matches! But with Delpo and Rafa, you can see the emotional toll the Olympics take.

Bravo will have live coverage starting at 11am ET with Nishikori-Murray followed by Delpo-Nadal.

AndyMira Says:

Argh JK!My heart warmed when i saw you give us the draw but it soon dropped to my feet when it says Rafa could meet with Kyrgios in 3rd round!

But thank you all the same JK..


J-Kath Says:

AM

Not really posting at the moment – am over-whelmed right now….but just wanted to say I don’t envy any of the four Rio semi-final warriors against the fresh legs waiting for them in Cinci.

Ciao.


AndyMira Says:

Okay JK…hope you’re going to join TX family soon..TX is not the same without you..


montecarlo Says:

After the operation Delpotro’s backhand is still pretty weak and Nadal knows how to make backhand’s look even weaker so even a 50% Nadal will take this match in two sets but after winning the doubles he looked pretty tired and satisfied too so Delpo does have a little chance.


Okiegal Says:

@AM……Eeek….as Margot would say! Do not relish Rafa possibly having to face Nick. TBH, I am shocked he is still planning on playing Cindy. He will be very tired…..and Margot is right, the fresh legs that the boyz fresh out of Brazil will have to face is worrisome. But believe this, I will be there for every point!!!


Okiegal Says:

Mira, thanks for the link! Love all things Rafa! The link on the other thread about the sweet things D’Nay said about me….well she is very foolish about me and gets carried away….I couldn’t possibly be all that nice!! She is a sweet daughter-in-law and I love her like the daughter I never had. But thanks for the kind words…..kind words are very refreshing.


AndyMira Says:

Okie…i am also surprised that he still intent to play Cincy..but i don’t think Rafa will expect anything from it..he just wants to get as much game as he can..you know,to get the feel and rythmn before USO..and all that telling us how serious he is to do better at USO..i think deep down he was very disappointed with the result last year and now when he is in much better place than last year,he must be dreamed of getting the better result than that..and he’s gonna get very motivated by a very positive result in Rio..


AndyMira Says:

Okie…don’t let D’Nay hear you said that about her…otherwise you have to give her 10 lawn mower to persuade her!!!Serves you right!!!..He he he..


AndyMira Says:

M…Wheeee..so far so good for Andee..


Daniel Says:

Murray 2 points away from a chance on bi


Daniel Says:

2 MP’s saved by Kei, last with a return winner. Murray missed an easy volley for him to close


Daniel Says:

Fantatic point by both with Murray winning in the end on the floor, third MP


AndyMira Says:

M,JK,RZ…Wow!What a point to end a match!..congrats you guys…another final for Andee…


Margot Says:

Thank you so much AndyMira that was an extra special bumper parcel you sent over. It contained not only his missing back hand but his missing timing and his missing serve! Whoopee!
Murrayinahurry!
Good luck to your man :)


Anto Says:

What a fantastic penultimate point. Congrats murray fans.


Daniel Says:

Murray x Nadal or Murray x DelPo will be great. He had a rivalry with DelPo since young age and if it is Nadal they both will go for bi championship.

Murray can be first bi champion, Graff reach consecutive finals but was silver in 1992 after her Golden Slam in 88.

Murray seems to be on a great phase, with Fed out, Djoko injured and Nadal recovering from injury he seema poised for great few months, specually now with Lendl and mental boost. He sure like Olympics years, 2012 his first Slam and this year another Slam as well.


AndyMira Says:

I told you M!I’m not a cocky person..but i can feel it in my guts that he’s going to win easily and what’s more..he’s got a huge advantage to win a gold because whomever escape from the battle of the wrist later will be too tired and weary to deal with one of the great rallier in the business..

And you’re very much welcome M!!!


Daniel Says:

What a massive inside out FH by DelPo to break, long rally forst chance he run away hos BH he unleashed the winner.


AndyMira Says:

Yes Daniel..and i guess there’s plenty of them before the match is over..


Okiegal Says:

Wow……Rafa has played 199 games….17 hrs on court.


Okiegal Says:

Congratulations Andy fans…..especially good pals Margot and J-Kath and I am sure Willow is pleased as punch too. She has been begging for Rafa/Andy final. Well, half is there but it might be a tall order for our Rafa. He is down a break…Grrr! Break back Rafa……PLEASE!!

VAMOS!!


AndyMira Says:

Okie…and to think he wants to play 3 event originally..


AndyMira Says:

Okie!!Incredible,Rafa heard you!!Ha ha..


Okiegal Says:

Mira, I know…how scary was that. He broke back, thank goodness!


Daniel Says:

DelPo missing too many returns every since he was broken.


AndyMira Says:

OKie…you know what’s the positive things today?Body language and a very strong vibe that came from Rafa’s body promised a good fight and if he’s going to lose,we should be satisfied at least..


Anto Says:

So far rafa is playing so well. :)


Daniel Says:

DelPo serving to force a breaker. Vet levelled first set, both only had BP’s in the games they broke and holded relativelly easy. This last one eent to deuce die to DelPo’s big FH winners down 15-40. But overall Nadal’s cross courr BH is the shot is bothering DelPo. Everytime he tried togo BH DTL just redirecting the ball to that wing Nadal unleashes a flat cross court to open court. DelPo is doesn’t have power for a BH DTL winner or acelearting shot. FH Otoh looks as good as ever.


Anto Says:

Rafa wins the first set. Vamos Rafa.


Daniel Says:

Nadal playing a great game to break and close set. big advantage for him now. Whoever won that tuff set would make finals. Let’s see if DelPo has something left still.


Daniel Says:

Looks like the 5 hours Nadla played yesterday was just what he needed to get himself in form.


Margot Says:

Rafa looking good. JMDP not so much. El Matador was right about Rafa exposing his back hand and comparative lack of movement.


Daniel Says:

DelPo still alive, but he broke first in set 1 as well. Let’s see if he holds it. And he kept exchange BH to Nadal’s FH instead of going to Nadal’s BH and eventually got a short ball runnaway hos FH and hit the winner.

Now time to serve big.


Daniel Says:

Nadal mat be feeling yesterday matches. He start making silly mistakes and seema kind of lost focus.


Anto Says:

I just hope Nadal doesnt start giving aways points through unforced errors


Margot Says:

Mustn’t go putting short balls into the middle of the court or they will get mighty punished.


Van Persie Says:

I will already congratulate Andy for the Gold. He is one level above Rafa or Delpo. Looked great today.


Anto Says:

Nadal didn’t do much of that in the first set. But in this set we are seeing those shots starting to come again.


AndyMira Says:

Rafa’s standard down considerably in 2nd sets and made a lot of UE’s and cost him a very precious sets..


Margot Says:

1 set each now and lending trusty, well used sofa to OK and AM…
Tsk! Tsk! VanP, that’s called jinxing not to mention jumping the gun. Not over till the fat lady sings….You have obviously been scoffing too much goat….;)
If Rafa gets through, court conditions suit him much better than Andy. Skeeze called it.


Daniel Says:

Nadal may realize that he will have to play another set and come back tomorrow to play best of 5. This may play in the back of his mind and his level drop.

DelPo seems wants it more.


Van Persie Says:

Margot,

Let’s be realistic now :)
You have seen Andy today…do you really think one of these 2 has a chance tomorrow? We have only battle for silver medal here.

P.S. The greek eye saw Andy winning the Gold ;)


AndyMira Says:

M..just sofa?We could use some queen bed as well you know..we’ve come from afar not to be sits on well used sofa!!

Btw..agree with you on the 2nd line…VP can’t wait to put rafa down at every opportunity..


Van Persie Says:

AM,

Are you for real? when did I try to put Rafa down? Was rooting yesterday for Mergea and Tecau, coz…they are Romanians?


Van Persie Says:

P.S. for AM,

show me pls. every ogher opportunity, where I tried yo put Rafa down. Think before you “speak”!


Danica Says:

Congrats Andy!!! Yay!!

With a win in doubles, Rafa becomes the first player to win all four Slams and Olympic gold in both singles and doubles. Well done! Bravo!


Anto Says:

A gutsy game from nadal


Anto Says:

Even if nadal lost today, I am happy the way he played most of the match today. :). I hope he can keep this up in cincinatti and us open


Van Persie Says:

Amazing performence by both: Rafa and Delpo, given the fact, they had injuries in the recent past.


AndyMira Says:

M….Thank you for lending the sofa!Okie…you can come out from behind the sofa..we can go home now!!


Anto Says:

Nadal broken, del porto serving for the match.


Danica Says:

Yes, they’re both amazing. Although, this is not the DelPo vetsion that played against Novak. Just sayin’. 0:30


Daniel Says:

No DelPo, wrong side. 0-40 serving for the match. OMG!!!


Daniel Says:

DelPo playing long shots one after another this game to get broken, He hd to wrong foot and he hold his arms and didn’t unleashed the shots as he was doing. Now all momentum with Nadal.


Anto Says:

Nadal broke right back.. Hell yeah. . vamos rafa..


Okiegal Says:

That break by Rafa was totally unreal….that is all I’ve got to say about that! I also witnessed the best vamos ever!!


Daniel Says:

0-30 Delpo returning a great on the run FH cross court passing shot.


Van Persie Says:

Have not seen the Djoko-Delpo match, but I guess Delpo is also tird now. He is not yet used to play so many matches in a row.


Daniel Says:

0-40 again. 3 straight games that they play 0-40. This is IT for DelPo, get one of next 3 points, break and serve “properly” for the match


Okiegal Says:

Oh my ….that didn’t last long….DP is back with a vengeance!


Daniel Says:

2 FH’s long. C’mob DelPo.

If Nadal holds this game he will break DelPo next game.


Daniel Says:

3 FH errors in this game alone. Nerves! hate to be right. Next game he will serve having lost opportunity to close the match, than break again and have to force a breaker. Hope I am wrong and he holds, this match deserves at least a tiebreak


AndyMira Says:

M!I need the sofa back!Asap!!!


Anto Says:

This match truning into a fantastic rollercoaster


Okiegal Says:

WOWZER….came back from 0-40… Amazing, Mr. Nadal…simply amazing!!

VAMOS!


Daniel Says:

Game for love, tibreak it is. DelPo slight advantage due to his serve and he won more points on Nadal’s serve.


Daniel Says:

3-0 DelPo, 1 more mini break just in case.


Daniel Says:

4-2. one more point on serve Delpo to make 5-2. DO IT


Daniel Says:

ACE, WOW DElpo, 6-4 MP


Daniel Says:

Again, DelPo choosing wrong side. one more MP but on Nadal’s serve.


Van Persie Says:

Congrats Delpo!…Wow…huge Silver Medal for him. Am happy for him :)


Daniel Says:

Nadal missing an inside out FH to lose.

Super happy for DelPo deciding the Gold medal with Murray.
Too bad Murray will be favorite, he played 1 and 15 min while DelPo, 3 h and 10. Hope DelPo has something left in him, that would be great if he somehow gets this GOLD, What a history.

Nadal x Kei Bronze should be fun as well, think Nadal will be tired and Kei plays fast, ket’s see.


Anto Says:

congrats delpo, U earned it. As for rafa i am happy he played a good match


skeezer Says:

DELPO!!
Commiserations to Tenngrand.
Wow knocks out Djoker and Nadal at the Olympics. Can he make it a trifecta with Murray?


Daniel Says:

Also, DelPo beat Djoko and Nadal, can he beat another Big 4 to win it all?


Okiegal Says:

This is a happy moment for DelPo and his fans! What a match for both players! The gentle giant is back and I am happy for him. He’s been through so much!!

Rafa can still medal…prefer the GOLD, but a bronze is better than nada.

Btw, I think DelPo’s wrist is healed….and Rafa’s wrist seems to be working good too!


AndyMira Says:

Congrats Delpo and his fans..after much pain and suffering,he deserved this…

Well M…it’s easy to WHEEEE for Andy now without being guilty…Good luck M,JK,RZ…M…want to buy me dinner and a bouquet of flower again if Andy win GOLD??


Okiegal Says:

As I said the other day, the record books would look a lot different had DelPo been healthier. I see why his wrist causes him problems, however, he hits so hard……


Margot Says:

Sorry about your Rafa AM and OK, just played too much tennis, I guess BUT he has a GOLD anyway!
Well played JMDP, see you tomorrow! Andy will be up against him and the whole of South America it seems. Hope he’s up for it.
Let’s Go Andy! Let’s Go!


Travis Bickle Says:

Commiseration to Tenngrand indeed!
And also to Tennis X’s small tenngrand community, especially to our omnipresent ‘loves everyone’ poster AndyMira.

Congrats to Delpo, the person who singlehandedly made Murray’s career!

Andy’s main trophies (Olympics 2012 and his first Wimbledon in 2013) came courtesy of Delpo, who played gruelling semifinals and physically depleted Murray’s opponents in those finals (Fed and Djoker) so that they could not do much and lost easily in straights…

Tomorrow’s Olympic gold for Murray will come again due to Delpo destroying himself today and won’t be able to do much in the final – look for an easy straight sets win for Muzza!!!

If Djoker couldn’t win gold, my second choice is always Andy – irritating on court behavior, but golden heart, true tennis talent, and honest guy all around!


Danica Says:

BRAVO DelPo!!!
What a tournament for him!! Really glad he made it to the finals. I don’t think he’ll have anything left for Andy tomorrow, but let’s see.

This was also a good tournament for Rafa where he already won a gold and has a chance for bronze. All is not lost yet.

Kei will be much fresher so, may the better player win.


Okiegal Says:

The match tomorrow should be a great match! Go Andy…..DEFEND! I love DP but Andrew is my 2nd fave!! Tennis done and dusted for the day……and I’m exhausted!!


Okiegal Says:

I have never been to tenngrand…..know nothing about that site, but I take it is pro Rafa??? I guess I should check it out. I noticed commies to the site, so thanks from me…a loyal Rafa fan to Skeezer and TB!! I appreciate cha!! 😀😀😀


AndyMira Says:

@TB…Well,thank you for your commiseration Boss!


Okiegal Says:

I like the guy, but no trifecta please!


Travis Bickle Says:

You welcome, AndyMira!

The way how you love everyone here and in general is so touching and truly genuine!
Can I be your facebook friend?


sisay Says:

why am I not seeing my posts tennis x staff’s?


Okiegal Says:

Thanks Margot! Will be in Andy’s corner tomorrow….I think I have made that plain enough already…..The question is will Jaun have anything left in the tank??? Good luck girl!!


chrisford1 Says:

Travis, it is tough, I share your opinion of Andy. And I was happy for his Wimbledon win, but Juan del Potro has been through the grinder. All those lost yearsfrom injury, rehab, shaking the rust off to get close, only to go down on injury again. And while Andy has to be favored, I so want Delpo to make it back to win one more huge trophy. Not that the silver is nothing it is huge on it’s own if Delpo is beaten by Andy – because getting in that position took 2 him prevailing in two epic matches over two Legends.

Somewhere, Djokovic is aching, but happy for Andy and Juan, especially Juan. Both friends of his he respects immensely. Might be tough for him to watch the gold medal game. From injury or backfired diet or general funk, he lost his greatest opportunity. I don’t think he will tune in to watch. Too much hurt left.


AndyMira Says:

Sure TB!I would love to..Btw..did you go outside and hug random people already today TB?Please be careful okay?It could be dangerous..i mean..i’ve only give my dearest friend here a VIRTUAL HUG but you choose to hug random people PERSONALLY..like i said,it could be dangerous..i don’t want you to develope an egg one or two on your forehead one of these days..like i said please be careful okay?I don’t want anything happen to you..You’re so precious here..


sisay Says:

Andy would have lost it surely tomorrow if it was with Raga. Raga is a bad match up for Andy. I well know Delpo won’t be easy to beat but Andy has a better chance winning his 2nd og.

We are witnessing that Lendi has brought Andy more of luck than tennis. I am really worried about Noles chances of winning us open since it is hard to fight luck than skill.

With Delpo and Rafa back with such fitness, us open will be a war fest…I think.


jane Says:

amazing win by delpo – takes out both novak and a revived rafa, wow! apparently rafa even won 2 more points than delpo in the match.

about tomorrow, though, i question delpo’s attitude:

TennisNow
‏@Tennis_Now

Del Potro: “I don’t know if I will be ready for the Gold tomorrow. I already won the Silver medal and it’s enough for me.”

“it’s enough” – really? maybe this was a “lost in translation” comment since english is not his first language; i am sure he will put up a fight in the finals. we’ll see.


chrisford1 Says:

Ben Rothenburg notes:

“Reminder: US Open still hasn’t given Juan Martin del Potro, its 2009 champ and now a Rio medalist, the main draw wildcard he should deserve.”

They f___ing better!


sisay Says:

autocorrect sucks…Rafa not raga


Danica Says:

CF1, after this, I am sure they will. I mean, who is more deserving?


J-Kath Says:

Of course, if Andy Murray wins tomorrow it will be because others are too tired. Obviously it will be because they have had tougher matches and they are all better than Andy. Andy is also responsible for a few losses suffered by his competition in the past. Essential that an asterisk must be put against him because if X had not had such a long match with Y Andy would have had no chance.

If Andy does zero at Cinci it will be because he’s not such a good player….few seem to recognise that all players in the Rio semis and finals will be bone-weary – legs gone so to speak. (PS: to Okie – I said that previously).

VP @ 2.42: Yes, he looked great today. I do trust your comments.

I wonder if posters here could stick to reality a bit more: less saying Andy will win or Andy will lose based entirely on wishing it to be so or on so-called gut feelings or because it is the norm to say it.

And, no-one is deserving, not Andy, Nole, DelPo, Rafa, Federer – they have all had career damaging health problems. (PS: Andy’s in particular seem to be most forgotten or less forgiven than most).

Ciao.


Danica Says:

J-Kath,
If Andy wins, and I am sure he will, it will be because in that match he will be the better and more deserving player. Simple as that. No “ifs”. It’s not a player’s fault if the guy on the other side of the net is tired, sick, injured, young, old, whatever.


BBB Says:

You’ve got three guys who’ve fought back from serious injuries and are fighting to win a tournament that awards no points. It’s an amazing story.


Margot Says:

Kath @9.26
Well said! After Andy’s op I remember Krajicek saying he’d be surprised if Andy got back into the top 10. And many on here and elsewhere were writing him off completely. Amazing determination he has, as well as talent.
And please folk stop with that very tired trope about Andy needing to thank JMDP for previous slams, because Nole should thank Ferrer at AO, Fed should thank Nadal at USOpen etc etc.


Margot Says:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/olympics/37071924

For Andy fans. The “rally of the match.”


J-Kath Says:

Acknowledge & thanks Margot, Danica & BBB comments. Hoping to see Rafa and Kei match first as it is max. 3 sets (hope Rafa wins) and Andy & Delpo could have to go to 5 sets, please don’t let that happen for both their sakes.

Wonder if all 4 have a night flight booked to Cinci????


Noonen Says:

I am so disappointed in Juan Martin. Now I know he has a “traveling girlfriend”. He should not cross himself and look up to Jesus; he is living no different that the other fornicators. “Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate (homosexuals). . . shall inherit the kingdom of God.” I Cor. 6: 9, 10 Ever hear of marriage? And girls, ever consider waiting before giving yourself away like prostitutes?
