A big congrats to Juan Martin del Potro who made his first US Open semifinal today knocking out towering twin Marin Cilic 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-1 in blustery conditions. The Argentine cracked 27 winners against 24 errors and managed to overpower his Croatian foe down the stretch.
He'll face the winner of tonight's rain-delayed match between Rafael Nadal + Fernando Gonzalez with the Spaniard winning the first set in a tiebreak while the second set went to a tiebreak before play was suspended.
Delpo seems to have rounded into top form at the right time and is executing his power game with great confidence. I think whichever baller he plays is going to have his hands full dealing with those blazing groundies.
