Estoril R2: Del Potro def. Machado 6-1 6-0

Sad result for Rui at home, but an expected result. Rui had a chance to earn a game at *0-4 in the second set when he had 40-0. Also had an early chance at a break. But this way complete one-way traffic. Del Potro didn't have to go out of his comfort zone or extend himself to win the match.

Delpotro at another level.

Crushing. Del Potro didn't even seme to be trying that hard, but elite players are so much better than players of Rui's level (top 60-80) it's scary. Rui did try his best but he had no chance at ll.

Montanes next for Delpo. Del Potro clear favorite for that one.

Rui heads to Rome for a challenger, trying to get more points for his Olympic quest. He should forget this match asap, Delpo is just from a completely different level.

No level of Machado could ever compete with Delpo. Sure, he did take a set off Federer last year, but Delpo is a far tougher match-up for him. His shots are so powerful and heavy that players of Machado level can't even play their game/keep the ball in court, let alone compete.

It's no wonder Delpo was known as the Mickey Mouse king before he started beating the top guys in 2009; his style of play is perfect to beat annihilate low ranked guys.

He will be alright. He knows Del Potro is from a completely different level.

After being on the receiving end of the heaviest and most powerful strokes on tour today, next week's Challenger in Rome will look like child's play hopefully. In order to quality for the Olympics, he needs to beat the players of his level, Del Potro was always going to be an impossible ask.
