Del Potro in 2 is the obvious choice. But Montañes is a good claycourter and past winner of this tournament, so Delpo will have to be careful.

Although it was "only" Machado today, he's hitting the ball pretty well so I think he'll advance to the semis.

Montanes isn't that bad, but Delpo should win in 2.

Re: Estoril QF WWW: J.M. Del Potro vs. A. Montanes?

Interestingly, Montañes won their only ever match. 6-2, 5-3 ret. on clay in Acapulco 2006. Of course Del Potro was only 17 back then.

Still, Montañes is good on clay and has won the Estoril Open in 2009 and 2010 (Delpo won 2011), beating Federer in 2010. It will be a good test for Del Potro.

Yep, we'll have to wait for stronger opponents like García Lopez for that to happen.

Re: Estoril QF WWW: J.M. Del Potro vs. A. Montanes?

The 4th best player right now wins in two.

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.

Del Potro better handle his business! I want this to be a 2 and 2 affair.

66-1 record with 9 Coupe des Musketeers

Sadly, Monty kinda sucks now.
He lost a set to Reynolds, it'd take a miracle
