Re: San Jose QF: Del Potro def. Hewitt 6-2 6-3

Hewitt hit a torrent of FH errors throughout the match, especially in the games in which he was broken, along with a few untimely double faults; needless to say he didn't play well. He was trying to approach the net a bit to mix it up but didn't find much success doing that, Del Potro was passing well especially a great inside-out FH pass midway through the first set.

I really thought Hewitt should have tried to hit some short slices, dropshots, anything to get Del Potro off the baseline where he was dominating. Besides that it was a pretty strong performance from Del Potro, serve was pretty good apart from a few service games where his 1s% dropped, easily winning the CC FH rallies and finding his range with the FH DTL as the match went on. Looks likely to win the title.
