Juan Martin del Potro - LA
I'm thinking Juan Martin has realized it feels much better to win than to lose - and he likes it.
The 19-year old won his third consecutive tournament in less than a month defeating Andy Roddick 6-1, 7-6(2) at the Countrywide Classic and entering the top 20 for the first time (world no. 19). He'll surely be one-to-watch in New York and has become a dark horse for the US Open championship with this title.
A great win for the Argentine but another huge setback for A-Rod. The American baller was the sole top-tenner in the draw with the next highest seed being Fernando Verdasco who sits at world no. 13 this week.
Seriously, if he couldn't stroll to this hard court title with the best ballers in Beijing what are his chances at any major from now on?
