Del Potro vs Nadal
Rafael Nadal was really good on this year Wimbledon or at least better than expected. Now when he is in 30s, usually Rafa is not in the good mood after clay court season. Namely he gives his best on clay, takes many trophies but when needed to switch from tough clay court season to grass, he had problems, at least that was the case in last few years. That's why he knew even to pass grass court season. There were rumors he could do the same now but he did show up here and played better than expected.
But we can say that maybe his opponents weren't to tough so far, there is a little bit of that too.
In any case Delpo is going to be very tough opponent if you ask me. Much tougher than it was the case when they met the last time, in the semifinals of this season French Open. Back then it was 3-0 and Rafa allowing only 7 games in total. But that was clay. Now on grass it could be different story. Delpo is very dangerous on this surface with his powerful serve and forehand.
Delpo won even 5 times against Nadal out of 15 mutual meetings and that was more than decent. Once they met here at Wimbledon. Rafa has won back then in 4 sets but with only one game advantage.
