DEL POTRO Wins Epic Semis To Play In ATP Finals

US Open champion Juan Martin DEL POTRO beat Robin SODERLING in a heavyweight encounter to reach the final of the season-ending ATP World Tour Finals for the first time.

The 5th seeded won 6-7 (1-7) 6-3 7-6 (7-3) to set up a decider against Russian 6th seed Nikolay DAVYDENKO, a surprise 6-2 4-6 7-5 winner against top seed Roger FEDERER. DEL POTRO is now one victory from landing the biggest title outside the four Grand Slams.

For a while, he looked to be in trouble when SODERLING converted his first break point of the night to lead the third set 4-2. However DEL POTRO immediately responded back with a break serve thus forcing the final set to a tie breaker.

DEL POTRO dominated the shoot-out after opening with a raking backhand winner and an ace.
After two hours and 10 minutes the man from Tandil found himself with four match points and he converted the second with an ace before raising his arms in triumph.

"I'm very happy to make my first final, one more match before my holiday," an exhausted DEL POTRO told the crowd.

love this player. talented and humble.

on other hand; but did any of you watch Ever Banega dominating the field again? too bad valencia drew though

I haven't seen Banega play since the WC U21 here in Holland. He was really great then, I always wondered why he didn't break through in Spain. But you say he's a strong player again?

he must defeat davydenko now, this shouldn't be difficult. i think the whole crowd will support del potro. don't know any person who likes davydenko.

I'm happy for Del Potro. I hope he maintains this level and doesn't just become another Nalbandian who had so much talent but no consistency.

not only strong, but in my humble opinion he is already one of the best central midfielders in the world

A friend of mine mentioned 2012 last night to me and it's the first I heard about it so I jumped on here out of curiosity. I think it's kind of sick and sounds like a bunch of skeptical jargon.
I choose to live every day like it is the last because let's be real, WHO THE HELL KNOWS what is going to happen or when it's your time to go on. The past is history, the future is a mystery and now is a gift, thats why it's called the present. It's not healthy to sit around and trip out about when you will die. Stop wasting your time you have now.
