Pony still not at his best, but light years ahead of where he was a month ago. Timing his shots much better. First serve % dropped in the second, but faced only 1bp (in the first set).

Dodig is having an excellent season and played well most of this match.

Juan :woohoo:

He definitely needed to play more than two matches in a row, everytime he plays the details are getting in place and he gets more confident about his shots and his form :yeah: :D

Will this mean top 200 again?

He is doing pretty good. If he doesn't win this week he has a pretty good shot next week @ Delray Beach.

yeah... i'd agree not at his best, but, i'd seen performances like that around his peak... it was nearly a shut out and displayed a good amount of his trademark brutality...

to truly see if he is back to his best then you need someone who is gonna make him face a few more break points than that...

again a good win for Del Potro,

he seems to play like a solid top 20 player,

excellent body language, no sign of frustration,

and most important: his wrist is still ok

If you look at the ambiance during night matches in BA, it's prettystrange Delpo isn't playing there.

Look at this clip, and especially at the end. How the crowd reacts on the wins of Nalbi and Chucho, which Argentinian doesn't want to play here?!

Another good run from Del Potro, he should be able to reach semifinals here, but unfortunately I can't see him beating Roddick at this stage of his comeback.
