Roger Federer vs Juan-Martin Del Potro prediction
All eyes will be on Arthur Ashe Stadium when Roger Federer and Juan-Martin Del Potro face each other in the 2017 US Open quarter-finals. Delpo came from behind to eliminate Dominic Thiem in the last 16, but beating the Swiss superstar is easier said than done.
Roger eyeing first US Open title since 2008
Many people would say that Roger Federer is on the twilight of his career, but the rejuvenated Swiss is enjoying a very successful season. Federer is still capable of producing outstanding display at the highest level and he is regarded as No. 1 favourite to win the 2017 US Open title. The Swiss veteran did well to clinch the Wimbledon trophy earlier this year, but he has been having his ups and downs at the fourth Grand Slam tournament of the season. The World No. 3 experienced all sorts of problems in his opener against home favourite Frances Tiafoe (3-2) and he had to come from behind in round 2 against Mikhail Youzhny as well (3-2). However, by rolling over the likes of Feliciano Lopez and Philipp Kohlschreiber Roger Federer set up a meeting with Juan-Martin Del Potro and you should bear in mind that he is after his sixth US Open trophy. The tennis legend won his last title at the Grand Slam Tournament in New York City back in 2008 thanks to a 3-0 win over Andy Murray.
Rising from the dead
Juan-Martin Del Potro, on the other hand, outclassed the likes of Laaksonen, Menendez-Maceiras and Bautista-Agut before facing Dominic Thiem in the US Open last 16. The Argentine player was totally outplayed by the Austrian in the first two sets (1-6, 2-6), but the battled back and eventually booked his place in the quarter-finals of the Grand Slam tournament. Juan-Martin Del Potro face an uphill task in Wednesday’s clash against Roger Federer and it has to be noted that he is after his sixth victory over the Swiss ace. The World No. 28 will have to be at his sharpest in the match against Federer if he is to make it to the semis of the major tournament for the fourth time in his career and, one thing is for sure, he is going to leave his heart on the court. The hard-hitting Argentinean won his first and only US Open trophy in 2009.

Roger Federer vs Juan-Martin Del Potro betting pick
Roger Federer is brimming with confidence following the routine 6-4, 6-2, 7-5 victory over Philipp Kohlschreiber and seeing that Juan-Martin Del Potro was struggling with an injury during the clash against Dominic Thiem, I believe that there is a big value in betting on the World No. 3. Federer is after his fourth straight win over Delpo and he is likely to give his fans yet another reason for celebration.
Pick: Federer to win 3-0
