Defeating Federer Was Huge: Del Potro, Inspired In Miami

◼️ The Argentine is on fire after winning in Acapulco and Indian Wells

Taking advantage of his good moment with the successive titles in Acapulco and Indian Wells, the Argentinean Juan Martin Del Potro opens this Friday at the Masters 1000 tournament in Miami against the Dutchman Robin Haase.

Del Potro, fifth favorite, comes from winning his first Masters 1000 in Indian Wells on Sunday against the Swiss and number one ranking, Roger Federer, first seed in Miami. The triumph in the tournament in the Californian desert was the second consecutive Argentine after crowned in Acapulco.

“Yes, I’m in a good moment, because achieving my first Masters and beating Federer was huge, my body is responding well, and my injuries look like a thing from the past”, Del Petro told a press conference.

To think that the Argentine raised those two trophies recently was a utopia after having gone three times in the operating room to fix his left wrist.

However, he returns for his privileges as when he won the US Open in 2009, as when he helped Argentinian team win the Davis Cup (2016) and the silver medal in Rio-2016.

Delpo already keeps trophies of all categories in its showcase: A Grand Slam, A Masters 1000, nine ATP 500 and 11 ATP 250.

“I think in Miami I have good opportunities, because in my bracket I have Dimitrov (Grigor, N.3) and Goffin (David, N.7), although there are other very good players, but with luck I would see Federer at the final” , said Del Potro.

The Tower of Tandil already counts victories on the biggest of the last times, since it has defeated to Federer (seven times), five to Novak Djokivic, that tries to recover its old form and against whom it can be moderate in the third round, and three to Andy Murray (he’s not in Miami).
