This could be Andy Roddick’s last match to finish an illustrious career. Though, the American will certainly go all guns blazing against the Argentine Juan Martin Del Potro today, amidst present state of affairs the latter looks pretty favorite to win this encounter. So far Roddick has shown in this tournament that he is not done yet, but now that he is up against the lanky Argentine we might see the last of him today. Thus, get ready to enjoy some pulsating and emotional tennis on Tuesday, when these two contenders will vie for the spot in last eight at 2012 US Open.
Made a name for himself over the years with his devastating serve, Andy Roddick is one of those defiant warriors, who could not win more than a single Grand Slam title, but they always made their presence felt with their on-court demeanor and never-say-die attitude. Roddick entered this tournament with some confidence behind him, as he came to US Open with a title victory at Atlanta. Roddick might not be hoping to end his great career with a Grand Slam win, but he must be aiming to cause massive upsets and Del Potro cannot afford to go a bit complacent against this American.
A highly talented tennis player, Del Potro caught the attention of everyone by beating Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer back-to-back to win the 2009 US Open title. The lanky Argentine caused a sort of stir in the tennis world with his devastating flat forehand and emerged as the next big thing in tennis after producing that remarkable performance. Things were not suppose to move ahead the way we presumed after his 2009 US Open heroics, as Del Potro’s career hit rock bottom, when it was plagued with a few career threatening injuries. Del Potro had to miss out the greater part of the 2010 season, but he earned some good wins in 2011 and now in the ongoing season he is back in the top 10. Del Potro has a very good 51-13 win-loss record for the season, which says a lot about his good form. He has also won two titles this season. Back in the top 10 again, we know Del Potro has the ability to win the title again, but he needs a fully fit body to go ahead for that.
This will be a fifth meeting between these two and Juan Martin Del Potro leads the head to head with 3-1. Last time they met in 2011 in Memphis, where Roddick topped the struggling Argentine in straight sets. Things have changed a lot over an year and now Roddick will face a stiff resistance from Del Potro.
