Juan Martin Del Potro comes into the tournament as the only man outside the top 3 to have won a Grand Slam in seven years. Del Potro recently that “it is important to be ready when opportunities present themselves” and this is a huge opportunity for the Argentine to take that Grand Slam tally to two.
Placed at No.9 in the ATP rankings, Del Potro has not been able to live up to his billing since winning his maiden Grand Slam at the US Open in 2009. The 23-year old Argentine has 10 career titles to his name and has managed to win two titles this year as well - one in Marseille and the other at the Estoril Open. At the Aussie Open in January, he fell to Roger Federer in the quarters. His win-loss record stands at 33-8, which characterizes his form this year. Del Potro’s best result here came in 2009 when he reached the semis, he was beaten yet once more by the Swiss Maestro in a pulsating five setter.
Albert Montanes has had quite a poor year and has a 7-11 record this year. His best result this year came in Estoril, when he was beat by his opponent today in the quarters. Montanes would realy have to pull a ‘rabit out of a hat’ to win this one.
Their head-to-head stands at one each, but the first of those matches was played way back in 2006.
TennisEarth picks Juan Martin Del Potro to prevail in three easy sets.
