2009 US Open Men's Single Final - DEL POTRO To Take On FEDEX

Well we’ve been hearing so many cries for some divine intervention for our National Football team. It’s time to rest that movement just a bit and hope there could be one in Flushing Meadows.

Juan Martin DEL POTRO crush Rafael NADAL 6-2, 6-2 & 6-2 in the semi final thus becoming the first Albiceleste in five years to play in a Grand Slam final (2004 Rolland Garros when Gaston GAUDIO defeated Guillermo CORIA). Awaiting him in the final is non other then defending champion and World No.1 Roger FEDERER.

So far in 2009, the only thing that has stop DEL POTRO from achieving his Grand Slam glory was FEDERER himself. First in the quarter-final of the Australian Open in which he was hammered by the Swiss maestro and later on in the semi-final of Rolland Garros.

So will DEL POTRO be lucky in his third attempt against Fedex and to become the third Argentinean to win the US Open after the legendary Guillermo VILAS (1977) and Gabriela SABATINI (1990)? Only time will tell.

We at Mundo Albiceleste would like to wish him good luck for the final and hopefully a victory here can bring some cheers to the many suffering Albiceleste fans at the moment.

Good job del Porto. I was rooting for Roger but I can live with Juan Martin winning a slam.

OK, Juan, let's see what you've got...not sure I'm crazy about him, but maybe he can prove me wrong by keeping this victory up

Vamos Palito! Wow, what a match! I'm sure glad my fellow countryman pulled off one of the greater tennis upsets in USO history! I bet Tandil exploded when he won!
