And locyka, I said for you don't worry about him. He has R4 already.
I was rather pessimistic about his IW performance pre-tournament. You were right. Hope his serve will improve a lot for against Kohlschreiber because he's on fire after beating Soderling.

You... pessimistic!
Kohlschreiben can be very hard opponent if he plays very good. I guess it's possible.

Never ever give up

Excellent work, Delpo!!! VAMOOOOS!

I told you all that Del Potro will reach 4th round. I expect a very tough match versus Kohlschreiber, but I believe in Delpo

I would not call it excellent. But come on...! He is by far not 100% so far and still beating guys like Fish,Ljubicic or Dolgopolov. That's something. His serve is rather bad. I believe his mental strength helped him out so far here in IW mostly. But against Dolgopolov he showed some of his devastating forehands. He's already moving pretty well, was slow against Ljubicic a little bit, against Tipsarevic too, but in this last match he had to show his ability to cover the court.Great to see him play and win again. Kohlschreiber won't be easy for sure. Obviously he should hit more aces otherwise he'll have to face a quick and smart Kohlschreiber.

Re: Del Potro Is Back - February/March 2011; Indian Wells R3 vs. Dolgopolov

Even though Kohli is 5 years older than Delpo, Juan (IMO)has the stronger mind control. Even at 22, he seems to have stronger mind control than almost everybody he plays, regardless of their age.

In a way it's too bad that Kohli's new coach (for about six months or so) is the same guy who was coaching andy murray when andy beat juan x3 on hard and x1 on indoorhard ... tho juan beat him on the clay in 2009 ... what i'm saying is that kohli's coach would have told him how best to beat Delpo.

otoh, knowing how to beat someone and actually beating him are two different things. of course, Kohli just beat another big server with a flatish forehand in soderling, but he also has a history of beating soderling .... his history against delpotro, otoh, is a losing one of 0-2

I will enjoy watching the kohli groundstrokes, but I also have faith in the 22yearold ..... vamos delpo!

Del Potro is the strongest mentally player in the Tour, so I believe, this will help him

Re: Del Potro Is Back - February/March 2011; Indian Wells R4 vs. Kohlschreiber

Another dramatic match won by Delpo It was not his best, though, but his comeback in the 2nd set TB was I am very happy with this win and I was right that Kohlschreiber would be the toughest opponent for Delpo so far in Indian Wells.

Next up is Robredo. It won't be an easy one, but I see Del Potro winning it

VAMOS!

Re: Del Potro Is Back - February/March 2011; Indian Wells QF vs. Robredo

Del Potro needs now to improve his serve, he sould have won 6-4,6-4 against Kolschreiber ( he had a break in each set )

he suffered from hypoglycemia, probably he is not used to playing early ( 11h am ) and he forgot to take a breakfast,

next time maybe he will play in night session, this could resolve this issue ( Del Potro seems to have better results if he plays in the evening )

Re: Del Potro Is Back - February/March 2011; Indian Wells QF vs. Robredo

Juan, did you wake up and just go out to play the match? Set the alarm clock, get a wake up call, and eat something next time. Good grief.

Now go beat Robredo into the ground. I've had it with that guy. And yes, it's personal.

Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far you can go.

Re: Del Potro Is Back - February/March 2011; Indian Wells QF vs. Robredo

Match against Robredo won't be easy, but I think he beat some better guys so far in IW. Hope he won't take it too easy and serve better. It's just....horrible to think about his last year. Just imagine guys where he'd have been by now without injury.Now, playing not even 70% I guess, and in the semi final here, thats something. Even with a bad serve.

Re: Del Potro Is Back - February/March 2011; Indian Wells QF vs. Robredo

the "dream" scenario for Del Potro :

- he beats Robredo ( who seemed injured against Querrey )

- Karlovic beats Nadal ( it sounds weird but I think it's possible because Karlovic is very good in this tournament and Nadal is not at his best level )

- Wawrinka beats Federer

- then Wawrinka beats Djoko in semi


with this scenario Del Potro will play Karlovic instead of Nadal in semi --> much more chances to reach the final where he will play Wawrinka and not a top 10 player

his ATP ranking for each round :

1/4: 66 ( it's done )
1/2: 54
final: 36
champion: 19 or 20

I want to believe to this dream

His performance here is already dreamlike. I thought that maximum 3rd or 4th round here is also good.Honestly I think his dreamlike run will ended in the semi against Nadal. But again...his ranking was 482 some 60 days ago, and I believe he will crack top 20 by Roland Garros starts for sure if not earlier.

Robredo withdrew before the match for a strained left abductor muscle.
Delpo is in the Semi against Nadal or Karlovic.

Juan Martin Del Potro ----- Caroline Wozniacki

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga / Ernests Gulbis --- Jarmila Groth / Julia Goerges
