del Potro def Melzer 7-6(4) 3-6 6-4 4-6 6-2 to lead Argentina into DC QFs

del Potro

Comes in for his first tie away from home and handled the pressure to seal the deal for Argentina and take them into the quarter finals against the Swedes.

Great introduction into Davis Cup.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

They might give Sweden a few problems if JMPD and Nalbandian play.

WELL DONE to JDMP to win his first 5 set match and under such pressure.

Great effort from the Argentine team all weekend to win this tie without Nalbandian - they owed him that one.

Young del Potro decided the tie

što nam je dao komad zemlje što je za sebe sačuv'o"

Incredible stuff!

Melzer must be feeling pretty sick of his DC performances

Well done Juan!! First DC match, first 5 sets match played and deciding the tie to make your national team reach the 2nd round in DC!! That´s really something!
I´m sure this must be quite a moment for him

I cant believe i put asutria to win the tie.

VERY bad judgement from me.

Melzer hit 90 winners in this match. I still think jurgen can potentially be a great player.

just needs to get his head in order

This has to be a great balm for JMDP after fading in five sets at the Oz Open.

Woot! I am very happy for Del Potro. I just really, really like this kid.

Melzer sure had a lot of winners although JMDP was not to shabby himself. Nice to see both having a good winner/UE differential: 89/53 for Melzer and 65/25 for Juan Martin.

I like a lot of players.

Easy for Argentina, great game by JMDP, I thought these kids couldn't win in five sets. Gutsy display.
