Oh for goodness sake- that is a nightmare! But he won anyway

Juan

And not only for his win over Zverev but also for his "waking up from the nightmare".

Re: Juan's 09 Cheering Thread - Auckland's Champion .. Next: Australian Open

And now in la nacion

i will traslate just his qoutes


"I can not think of anything like that, what happened was terrible, I thought I was dying"

It was night at the Grand Hyatt. Just winning in New Zealand, the first racket of our country, but at this stage what is a data-redundant, took the lift, enabling the card set and pressed the button 28 from the floor, their home. Suddenly, the light was extinguished, the system was cut. There was a sort of explosion. Was just a dim light that indicated the level 27. Desperate, he made several calls from Franco Davin, his coach, to internal security, according to his account. "I was trapped, with no light and no emergency button walked at least, no one answered- I broke the voice, I had no air," reports on the edge of despair. "I thought I was dying. Really?", Launches as a relief.


"What if I thought it would not be able to play More than in the Open, really feared for my life"

"I thought about leaving as the Pink Panther, I thought of anything at that time. I was dizzy, my tummy hurt"

Poor guy...sounds like it was scary. His line about the Pink Panther was kind of cute though.

Good luck to him tonight. I am really hoping he makes it to the quarters here (and would enjoy it if he got beyond- but that may be too tall a juncture at this point in his career.)

I like a lot of players.

Del Potro a tall order for German qualifier

Wednesday 21 January 2009
By Vanessa Skendaris



Men’s eighth seed Juan Martin Del Potro of Argentina has cruised past German qualifier Florian Mayer at Margaret Court Arena on Wednesday night, dominating in a 6-1 7-5 6-2 victory.

Del Potro began his second round match in blistering style, quickly breaking the German three times. With his powerful serve and groundstrokes, the Argentine had an impressive nine winners in the first set to Mayer’s one.

In a closer second set, Mayer picked up the pace, sticking with his Argentine opponent and eventually breaking his serve to gain a 5-4 lead.

Del Potro, who won his fifth career title in Auckland last week, then broke Mayer back in what was the point of the match. The 20-year-old Argentine had to scramble to make a drop shot from Mayer, who then hit a lob which Del Potro managed to get to and then blast a passing winner.

In the final set, the in-form Del Potro got an early break and surged to a 4-1 lead. Mayer, ranked No. 450 in the world, saved one match point, but a powerful cross-court forehand winner from Del Potro sealed the set and match in an hour and 54 minutes.

The 198cm Argentine will face either Australian Bernard Tomic or Gilles Muller of Luxembourg in the next round.

Quick facts

Del Potro won 92 points to Mayer’s 66, and made 30 unforced errors to the 19 of his opponent

Del Potro hit 41 winners to Mayer’s 12

The Argentine won 20 of the 30 points where he approached the net

Watched the first set. Muller is playing well and Delpo had a couple of loose points to let Gilles take the tiebreak. Fun tennis. But gee............... I don't think I can look
