I thought he was done when he got broken and gave Blake a 2*-0 lead.

Typical Blake and his fivesets uselessness Del Potro proved he's the strongest mentally player in the world. Needed such a match to confirm it.

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks

Blake and 5 sets don't go together.

Blake played an epic game to rebreak at 5-6 in the decider, but fails to win a five-setter yet again.

Potro decided to show up only in the last set, and what a set it was. I feel sorry for Blake, he was trying really hard and playing incredibly well.

Thanks DelPo, for not losing to Blake.

Kudo to Blake, for not performing his usual 5th set meltdown , making this win even more beautiful.
