Mens Singles, Quarter-final
Juan Martin Del Potro will look to continue his brilliant run at Wimbledon and send the world No.1 packing when he takes on Rafael Nadal. Join The Roar for live scores from around 12am – midnight (AEST).
The Argentinan has been on a roll this year. After a strong run at the French Open, he spent a solid lead-up to Wimbledon and now finds himself in the quarter-finals of the biggest tennis tournament on the planet.
While clay doesn’t neccessarily suit Del Potro, he was brutally beaten in the semi-final by Nadal at Roland Garros, going down in straight sets.
The grass courts of the All England Club are the playground of Del Potro though. He has never won this tournament, but this may be his best opportunity ever.
Del Potro has overcome the likes of Feliciano Lopes and Benoit Paire in the last two rounds, before getting past Gilles Simon, who beat Nadal at The Championships last year. The win against Simon might have taken four sets, but it proved Del Potro is serving bombs when he needs to and hanging on in plenty of other facets of the game.
Nadal, on the other hand, is still yet to lose a set, but has had a pretty easy draw. He is yet to face a seeded player (or anyone close to the seeds), with Jiri Vesely posing more problems than he has faced all tournament last time out when he went past in straight sets.
The world No.1 is yet to lose a set at the All England Club this year and with the courts playing a little slower, things have worked right into his hands. Winning the tournament though seems something of a stretch.
Del Potro has been in fine form and while Nadal is ruthless at the worst of times, he may struggle to deal with the power game of the Argentinian, who also has revenge on the mind.
Del Potro in five sets.
