JMDP has some problems with his right shoulder. He'll probabbly give Nudall a walkover in the QF.:o

Delpo is so tired in 1st set and a half. But some how he stayed through and win it all.
I finally saw him cheer for himself. He was like a dead fish in set 1

Yeah, it's expected after beating Nadal in Miami from two breaks down. Since then, Del Potro came back from break down against Wawrinka, Roddick, Hanescu, and more matches to come...

Hanescu you choker :o

At least Nadal is definitely going down at the QF stage though.

thought the same thing at the start of the week, but no way given Del Potro's two performances in Montreal, plus not after all those injury timeouts

Glad to see Juan Martin pull this one off, he looked like a dead horse during that first set -> great comeback in the second (albeit helped quite a bit by a lesser level performance from Hanescu). As soon as he took the 2nd set it was clear who'd end up this match's winner.
Hope his shoulder won't bother him too much during his next match(es).

Vamos JMDP! :hatoff:

Not unexpected, many of them have had a long time off and all of them have to adjust to HC, which is always more or less troublesome.

I hope it's all cool with his shoulder and just because he's hot/tired from all the tennis. Good work Delpo!

Seeing how Rafa played against Ferrer I don't see him beating Juan.
Plus, I think Del Potro will bring her A game since he is going to be motivated.

I think Nadal can take Del Potro tomorrow. He's in pretty bad form and he can only beat Nadal when he's at his absolute best.

Totally agree about mug era. I mean, when a so called 'legend' such as Hanescu can't even beat an injured ballbasher, it's a sign of the times.

Because he's the greatest tennis player the game has ever seen?. No i dont know really, good win for Potro he fought all the way and seemed to play better the longer the match went on.

Cause for the romanian fans he is a Legend... He had a lot of problems in his career. Slept in trains to go to tournaments. Had problems with his back because of that. Problems that led to injury but he managed to recover and he won a tournament in Gstaad last year beating some decent clay courters like Wawa or Andreev. Before the injury reached QF in RG to lose only to Federer. Almost reached a second QF this year but he lost to Gonzalez. And above all this he put Ion Tiriac in his place for all his BS about the Romanian Davis Cup team. He always speaks his mind and i admire that. Legend! :bowdown:

Hanescu has been playing tennis of his life since last years Gstaad. Yes, it is enough only for 25-40 position in ATP ranking but Hanescu hasn't got potential to ask for something more...

not a good performance by del potro, many UE's, and couldnt find his range, he even smashed a racket. Tomorow should be a close match, I think Nadal might take it though.

sure it was more like his bad play than his muscle problems, he took that full medical timeout after 2nd set and after that he looked fine, obviously it helped

heavy baseline game + dangerous 1st serve (although he isn't having a high percentage last 2 weeks)
