Madrid R1: Juan Martin Del Potro Defeats Florian Mayer 6-4, 6-2

Not a great match; Del Potro having some trouble with his movement, probably not yet adapted to the surface. Mayer not playing well at all either.

As expected, Del Potro ended up prevailing to set up a meeting with Youznhy in the next round.

Thoughts?

I have a hard time making sense of the name Mark Lenders alongside Japanese citizenship, no doubts about that

Yeah, that'd be bizarre. Needless to say, my real name isn't Mark Lenders nor am I Japanese

even playing average and whining a lot about the surface is enough to routines #24.

Delpo looked flat, too many unforced errors from mayer....

It could also be enough to beat Youznhy and even Cilic, but he needs to step it up if he happens to face Isner in R3. Against a server like Isner, there's no room for losses of concentration.

But indeed, it's good he's been beating 15-25th level players routinely without forcing too much - Wawrinka, Gasquet and now Mayer. Good signs indeed.

Florian was far from being horrible: he played pretty well, especially until 4-5 in the first set. Great winners, amazing angles, tricky slices... but then he got broken, and DelPo played way better than the start of the match (and he was already playing well!).

If I were Flo, I'd play a rich Challenger to collect wins and confidence: the game is all there, but the head is missing.

However, this match made me understand how much I like Mayer... even more than DelPo, differently from what I have always thought.

Congrats Juan, and good luck in R2

He played pretty well to start, but no return, no consistency, no emotion...

Potro is playing some great tennis just now. has an outside chance this week. shame to see Mayer play so poorly as he is generally a pleasure to watch.

You are faking?

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Florian just can't seem to win matches whether he's playing well or not. It didn't help that he drew in-form Del Potro in the first round.

Result was NID. DelPo too consistent.
