No surprises here, Hewitt can be pretty awful these days.

Tim Henman--Gael Monfils--James Blake--Donald Young--Rafael Nadal--Jo-Wilfried Tsonga--John Isner--Janko Tipsarevic--Richard Gasquet.

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

Juan Martin had to play some decent groundstrokes though. I think this match is another key step in his recovery against a player who had the potential to exploit any lingering weakness in the del Potro wrist. It'll be really interesting to see Juan Martin play Verdasco, should he win just now against Denis Istomin.

I support Andy Murray!

This is what we in the business like to refer to as a "comprehensive destruction".

Comfortable for the big man. Hewitt still wasn't hitting the ball great, making errors similar to those in the Dabul match, but take no credit away from Del Potro. For a guy coming back from injury, that was a seriously good performance. On his way back to the top 10 if he can stay healthy.

Del Potro doesn't need to unleash his monstrous forehand and still wins comfortably.

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.

Del Potro looked pretty good out there Hewitt isn't in his best form at the moment and was not ready for this match.
