Djokovic vs. Del Potro

Djokovic Highlights:

  • Great serving – 54 aces – 5 double faults – 64% 1st serves in play – 81% 1st serve points won – 69% 2nd serve points won – broken 4 times in 73 service games
  • Solid, consistent returns – 74% returns back in play – 38% won returning 1st serves – 52% won returning 2nd serves – converted just 22 of 68 break points
  • Great balance from the backcourt – 59 forehand winners – 45 backhand winners – has not dropped a set

Del Potro Highlights:

  • Very strong service game – 54 aces – 38% serves not returned – 69% 1st serves in play – 81% 1st serve points won – 57% 2nd serve points won – broken just twice in 75 service games
  • Dominating return of 2nd serve – 61% won
  • Forehand is his dominant stroke – 71 forehand winners

Matchup: Djokovic leads their head to head 8 to 3, but Del Potro won their last meeting earlier this year in Indian Wells and their only previous grass court meeting, here at Wimbledon in the Summer Olympic Bronze Medal match.

Del Potro’s game is built around his serve and his forehand. His 54 aces and 71 forehand winners attest to this potent 1- 2 punch. At 6’6″ he has the power to out hit anyone if he’s on his game and moving well. That last part will be his biggest challenge as his left knee has caused him problems in his last two matches. Even on one leg for part of his quarterfinal match, he faced only 2 breaks points and did not lose serve against one of the best returners in the game.

Djokovic has the best all around game in tennis – strong serving – great returns – weapons on both the forehand and backhand and amazing court coverage. He’s been serving very well here so far – especially on 2nd serve where he’s won 69% of the points. He’s dropped serve just 4 times. The match may hinge on Del Potro’s ability to move in order to stay in the rallies and not give Djokovic the upper hand. Look for Del Potro to go big early in the points to try to get the edge and not get into long drawn out points with the best mover in the game.

Janowicz vs. Murray

Janowicz Highlights:

  • Huge serve – 94 aces – 49% serves unreturned – 84% 1st serves won – 55% 2nd serves won – broken just 4 times in 78 service games
  • Good return of 2nd serve – 54% won
  • Big forehand – 82 forehand winners

Murray Highlights:

  • Strong 1st serve – 60 aces – 81% 1st serve points won – saved 16 of 23 break points faced
  • Consistent and solid return game – 77% returns back in play – 58% won returning 2nd serves – 24 breaks in 81 return games (30%)
  • Improved forehand – solid backhand – 65 forehand winners – 34 backhand winners

Matchup: This is a match up of power versus all court play. These two have played twice before – once in 2009 which Murray won in straight sets and once last year indoors in Paris won by Janowicz in 3 sets.

Janowicz is the underdog with nothing to lose and has a huge 1st serve and forehand that if flowing free can absolutely dominate an opponent. He’s never been in this position before as he’s playing just his second Wimbledon so it will be interesting to see if he feels the pressure of the moment or if he plays with abandon.

Murray only has the weight of an entire nation on his shoulders, and it showed in his quarterfinal battle. Murray has a more complete game than Janowicz and should control the rallies once the ball is in play. He faces a couple of challenges: how does he handle the huge serve from the huge Pole (Janowicz is 6’8″ tall) and how does he deal with the ongoing pressure of being Britain’s only hope.

Nerves got the best of Murray for 2 and half sets in his quarterfinal and needed some help to get out of that battle. We’ll see whether he’s now more relaxed after that close escape, or if he’s feeling even more pressure now.
