Del Potro Continues Win Streak
A birthday gift for me from Juan Martin DEL POTRO!
Delpo continues to fly the Argentina’s flag as he overcame an early setback against Luxembourg's Gilles MULLER yesterday to set up fourth-round clash with rising Croatian star Marin CILIC.
He dropped the first set against Muller after a tie-breaker on Hisense Arena before eventually closing out the match 6-7 (5-7), 7-5, 6-3, 7-5. Not even the hard-hitting MULLER's 22 aces were enough to tame DEL POTRO.
"I'm playing good, but I need to play better if I want to beat [Rafael] NADAL, [Roger] FEDERER, [Andy] MURRAY or [Novak] DJOKOVIC," he said. "I'm not going to beat them if I'm still missing break points or missing volleys."
