Del Potro Press Conferences | Australian Open 2014 1st Round

Juan Martin Del Potro Press Conferences | Australian Open 2014 1st Round

Q. That was a tougher challenge than you might have been expecting for a first round?
JUAN MARTIN DEL POTRO: Yeah, of course. I didn't expect this kind of matches against him. I didn't know too much before the match how he's playing tennis.

But he serve well. His forehand is good. I start the match really, really slow, and then was difficult to come back and play my game.

But in the end, I serve well. I hit some good forehands. That's help me to improve a little bit my game.

Q. A question about your racquet. Are you using the same racquet that you used in 2009 when you won the US Open?
JUAN MARTIN DEL POTRO: Yes.

Q. Were you supposed to get new racquets before this tournament that didn't come?
JUAN MARTIN DEL POTRO: No, no. I made a test. I try a few racquets before Australian Open, but I didn't feel the confidence to change before a Grand Slam. It's not easy find the good time to change racquet. Every tournament are important for us.

But I think I'm getting closer to change racquets, and that's important for me.

Djokovic vs Del Potro in Shanghai Masters Final

Djokovic vs Del Potro in Shanghai Masters Final Novak Djokovic defeated Jo-Wilfried 62 75 to reach another Shanghai Masters Final where he will face Juan Martin Del Potro, who upset Rafael Nadal 6-2, 6-4 . "I've always been coming out in China and making some really, really good results, winning trophies," Djokovic said. "It's very positive because most of the people would think after the fourth Grand Slam of the year is over, that somehow the season is finished in the minds of maybe people who are not following consistently the tennis season." Potro will try to win his first Masters title while Nole is the defending champ. Del Potro hadn't beaten Nadal since the semifinals of the 2009 U.S. Open but he is playing fully fit and confident — he's coming off a win last week at the Japan Open that returned him to the top five in the rankings. He completely overpowered Nadal with his deep, punishing groundstrokes and fended off all six break points he faced. Nadal was broken twice to start the match as del Potro raced out to 4-0. The Argentine started to make a few mistakes in the second set, giving Nadal two chances to break in the second game. But the Argentine saved both with huge serves and put the pressure right back on Nadal, breaking him for a third time in the following game.

Is Del Potro Ready to Upset the big boys Again?



Is Del Potro Ready to Upset the big boys Again?

For many, the winner of the men's singles title at the US Open can only possibly come from a group of three players. Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, and defending champion, Andy Murray, seem to be the only candidates for success at Flushing Meadows.

The sentimental amongst us might have a look at Roger Federer but, judging by his rapidly deteriorating form, it looks unlikely he will be adding to his 17 Grand Slam titles before putting away his racket. 

So, if you are looking for an answer outside the obvious, then why not check out the shortening odds of 2009 US Open winner, Juan Martin del Potro? The powerful Argentine defeated Nadal and Federer to lift the title in New York four years ago but has struggled to recapture that kind of form since due to a wrist injury. The 24-year-old spent close to a year on the sidelines and, as a result, slipped to number 485 in the world. 

Had it not been for that injury, then pundits on Betfair would have been talking about a big five, rather than big four for the last couple of years. Del Potro has already shown his grand slam-winning ability once so why not again? 

Certainly, there have been signs this year of the laid back South American rediscovering his best form, defeating Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray on his way to the Indian Wells Masters final. He also took Djokovic the distance on one leg in their semi-final encounter at Wimbledon in July. 

There is no doubt that Del Potro relishes playing on the biggest stage and the Slams give him the opportunity to show off to a massive audience. Rather than be intimidated by having Djokovic in his half of the draw, the former champion is bound to relish the challenge of defeating him. 

Del Potro has also made it clear the hard courts are his surface of choice, the 6ft6in competitor having won 46% of matches on that surface. All this adds up to a serious challenger to the world’s top three. Del Potro certainly looks capable of taking a big bite out of the big three in the Big Apple.

Del Potro Wimbledon 2013 quarter-final Press conference | Video and transcrip



Juan Martin del Potro's press conference after 6-2, 6-4, 7-6 win over David Ferrer.

Q. From outside it looks completely unbelievable what you've done today. Can you describe.

JUAN MARTIN DEL POTRO: From inside was the same (smiling).

I think I play a really, really nice match today. That's what I need against these kind of players, basically against David because he run a lot. He's a really good fighter. He was two set down and put me pressure all the time until the end of the match.

I think I play really focus the important moments. My best tennis came today to beat him.

Q. When you fell at the beginning, what was going through your head? Were you worried?

JUAN MARTIN DEL POTRO: Yeah, I was worried because was the same movements like four days ago. The doctor says they can't do any more with my knee. I had the tape, a very tight tape, and that help me to move a little bit, but nothing more.

Del Potro needs to find his game soon


Del Potro needs to find his game soon

Former Grand Slam champion Juan Martin del Potro suffered a huge blow to his aspirations of joining the ATP elite quartet after being dumped out of the early rounds at Melbourne to France’s Jeremy Chardy.

With Rafael Nadal out injured and Del Potro in a favourable side of the draw, the Betfair tennis suggested the path was clear to reach at least the semi-finals.

The Argentine, who beat Adrian Mannarino and Benjamin Becker with ease to make the third round, crashed out 3-6 3-6 7-6 6-3 3-6 in a gruelling match on the Melbourne hard surface.

Had he won then a clash with Andy Murray in the quarters was on the cards – a match that fans on Betfair would have given Del Potro a good chance of winning given that Murray struggled in his third-round tie with Ricardas Berankis.

Del Potro Interview at London Final | November 3rd 2012

Q. You've worked very hard to get back after your wrist injury from two years ago. Is being here do you think a sign you are now back with the very top group of players?
JUAN MARTIN DEL POTRO: I mean, it's a pleasure be part of that eight players. It's an honor, you know. We have big, big names playing this week. I'm part of them. They are favorites more than me.
But just be here is like a gift after tough works, after my wrist injury. I would like to enjoy the week trying to play good tennis and do my best.

Q. How big was the win over Federer in Basel for you two weeks ago?
JUAN MARTIN DEL POTRO: It was really nice for me. After tough losses this year, basically in the Olympics when he beat me, after a big match, come to meet again in Basel in the final to get my 13th title, was really nice, really big for me.
Also I'm looking forward for this tournament. After that victory, I can do maybe the same like there.

Q. It's three years since you last played here. What are your memories of that occasion? Were there times when you wondered if you'd actually make it back to play here again?
JUAN MARTIN DEL POTRO: Well, I had a good memories in London basically this year when I win the bronze medal. This tournament I made finals three years ago, beating Federer and beating another big guys.
Now my present is different. I'm not the favorite for this tournament. But just be here is so big for me and I will try to be until the end on this tournament. But I know they are playing really well, too.
