What a great final brings Monday evening. Roger Federer will play Juan Martin Del Potro Many people already see Federer with the trophy in his hands. We however don’t think his final match will be that easy. Del Potro is an extremely talented player and we think he is the future number one. He is already far ahead of Nadal or Djokovic and probably more consistent than Murray. This is the guy the tennis future will belong to. Del Potro is primarily an offensive baseliner with a powerful first serve and solid groundstrokes. His forehand shot is his most powerful weapon and he also possesses a very consistent two-handed backhand. Despite his height, Del Potro is also considered one of the best movers on the ATP tour, able to move efficiently on various surfaces like clay and hard courts. Del Potro's height allows him to get a powerful first serve, and not be bothered by high topspin balls. Del Potro's best surfaces are hard and clay, but generally his game is suited to all surfaces. At the 2009 US Open Del Potro began by defeating Juan Monaco and Jurgen Melzer in straight sets, before dropping a set but defeating Daniel Koellerer to reach the 4th round. He defeated a resurgent Juan Carlos Ferrero to advance to the quarterfinals for the second consecutive year. Del Potro would then advance to his first hard court semi-final by defeating Marin Cilic and demolished Rafael Nadal in the semis to reach his first Grand Slam final. His head to head record against Federer is poor but we think he must beat him sooner or later. Federer began his US Open campaign well with victory over unseeded Devin Britton. He advanced to the third round with a second round win over Simon Greul, where he played Lleyton Hewitt. He lost his first set of the tournament but eventually rallied to win in four sets. Federer next defeated Tommy Robredo to book a quarter-final berth against Robin Soderling for the third Grand Slam in a row, which he won in four sets after saving a set point in the fourth set. Federer reached his 21nd grand slam final by defeating no.4 seed Novak Djokovic for the third straight year. Many sports analysts, tennis critics, and former and current players consider Federer to be the greatest tennis player of all time and we agree with them. However, nobody is unbeatable and Del Potro is a player who never gives up. He is an underdog but should not be above 3.5. 1-point bet here.
