And Fed nets a back hand from the middle of the court.
@Daragh Ó Conchúir Have to win by 2 clear games. Del Potro lucky again.
Reminds me of their US Open final a few years back.
8-7 Del Potro Fededer to serve.
@Shaun sorry, I knew that. Said break point the second time, I'm looking at this screen too long. Good point on US Open, Delpo has had a lot of injury problems since.
Annalise Murphy remains in first overall, eight points clear of Van Acker. If the next race was a medal race, fourth place would win the gold for the Rathfarnham 22-year-old
@Daragh Ó Conchúir Just finally getting back to where he was. A Del Potro win could open up a gold medal chance for a certain Scot?
Seaton/McGovern are back in 10th. They need another top 10 result at least now.
@Shaun Fed is controlling things much better than he was in the second set though. Delpo should probably have taken him there.
James Espey has fallen away badly. Having gone 12th, 14th, 13th, he is now in 28th
@Ger I don't know about that Ger Del Potro doesn't move well and Murray would drop shot him to hell. Think Novak will take Murray though.
@Ger I give Murray half a chance against Djoker. And he'd have a good chance against Fed if the roof was open. I would be very confident he'd beat Delpo
Accept Djoker has to be favourite though.
@Daragh Ó Conchúir Still think the roof closure cost Murray Wimbledon.
8-8 now 0-30 Fed, could be coming to a close here.
What a shot by Del Potro with a Becker like dive to win the point!
That was brilliant by Delpo, it was a dying effort. He's a bit of a whinger though whenever he hits the dirt.
Who says the players don't care about the Olympics!
Was huge though, as it had 0-40 all over it. Now 30-30
This is some effort by Del Potro.
9-8 Del Potro the dive was a match saver!
Massive hold by Delpo, it was an unbelievable dive volley. But Roger looks the likelier
@Ger don't know what time, it's still down for 3pm!
@Ger I presume they will have to have a bit of a break. Should be within the half hour.
@Peter @Ger I think they get a longer break. It's usually about 25 minutes for the 49ers. O'Leary/Burrows recorded a seventh. That's better.
Annalise has 14 points with Belgium next on 22 and the Netherlands on 23.
Double fault by Delpo 0-15
The wind is playing havoc out there at times. Made Federer look like a club player at times, all due respect to the club player... 15-15
Del Potro has hit some booming serves today!
27th was still James Espey's best finish - today was his best day and he moves up to 38th overall
Break point Federer at 9-9.
He will return for his last two races tomorrow
And finally, Fed capitalises on the break point. Serving to get to the final at 10-9
Break to Federer finally his first in the match and it comes at 10-9 in the 3rd set!
@Daragh Ó Conchúir Del Potro is not gone just yet! 0-30.
3 break points to Del Potro this game is unreal!
WOW Del Potro breaks back 10-10.
Seaton/Burrows have confirmed their place in the medal race of the Star, qualifying in ninth. That was the very minimum expectation though. They are 45 points off third though so they will not medal. They were considered the most likely of the Irish sailors to medal, with Annalise a genuine contender as well.
That was fantastic resolve and length-control by Delpo, particularly in those blustery conditions. Breaking Federer back to love. That will renew his belief and batteries.
