Good play from JMDP, bad court surface for Gaba's game. JMDP served well and hit the ball deep with a good weight of shot consistently. Gaba just can't attack on these types of courts and stay away from missing. I'm surprised he doesn't play more on clay since that basically is his best surface now.

JMDP a threat for the SF (and potentially better) if he continues this form.

frankenstein (aka gabashvili) put up very little resistance. still, it's good to see delpo notch another win on the comeback trail.

Well done. I haven't seen him play in forever, I'll be sure to watch the live stream for the next round.

Hopefully a good sign for even better things to come (but beating mug like Gabashvili)

Delpo:yeah:

Glad he's back, he seems to be playing well now. Hope he can make a good run in San Jose. He certainly has the chance now that the draw has been opened up. Vamos!

Yup, Bashvili is pretty hopeless on faster courts, unless he's fortunate to run into a pusher or someone playing with lots of topspin.

Good result indicating he is getting better in form.
If Gabashvili won 5 games in a set it would still not look good for Del Potro's form.
