Lanky Argentine Juan Martin Del Potro caught the attention of everyone by beating Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer back-to-back and claimed his maiden Grand Slam title in 2009 at Flushing Meadows. Though, Del Potro had already shown the glimpses of his rare talent by earning some significant victories prior to that feat but his 2009 US Open win brought him on the center stage and the world witnessed the arrival of a new tennis star. As the destiny had it, this talented Argentine failed to even compete in the 2010 US Open due to a career threatening wrist injury. But, luckily it seems that Del Potro has fully recovered from a few grave injuries and now he looks ready to make up for that lost time.
Del Potro easily made into the second-round of this Major, as his opponent David Nalbandian withdrew from this tournament before their first round encounter. Del Potro has been on a redemption mode this season and he has won two titles so far in 2011. The lanky Argentine is back in Top 10 and ready to roll on hard-court – which is obviously his favorite hunting surface. On the other hand, he has a good 48-13 win-loss record for the season so far that says a lot about his good form.
Del Potro’s opponent is twenty years old Harrison, who turned professional in 2007 and bidding for his maiden title on tour. The American has an ordinary 23-21 win-loss record for the season and he needs to come up with something special on Friday to upset Del Potro. This will be a first meeting between these two and Del Potro obviously looks crushing favorite.
