1st set is tight - JMDP got 3 consecutive love holds in his first three service games, but he had no answer on how to break serve, the only break came to the ninth game. It could have gone either way because Russell did a good job to stay in front of the set. But he just faltered and he ran out of gas in the 2nd set.
Yes, great point in the 5th game of the 2nd set but Russell fucked it up anyway
Del Potro has great opportunity to win his first title since US Open, only big servers ahead, he was already tested by Isner in the 1st round, so he knows how to deal with booming serves in these conditions.
stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
a very solid service game from Del Potro, Russell didn't manage to have a break point,
Del Potro seems to be quick with his footwork, a great defense, this can be an asset against Roddick for the semi, especially if Roddick gives a lot of pace on the rally, this can allows to Del Potro to comfortably play his game from the baseline with brutal forehands to win the point
Re: Memphis QF: Juan Martin Del Potro def. Michal Russell 64 62
Final against roddick tonight.
Juan Martin Del Potro
But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.
