Oz: Time.





I have a good start season. I beat Feliciano López last week and today I won another match. That's what I need. I need time, I need matches, I need sets, I need hours into the court. Then in the future, I will be better.

-- Juan Martin del Potro



Baghdatis d. del Potro 6-1, 6-3, 4-6, 6-3


Other than getting (and surviving) some prolonged competitive matchplay, I had practically no expectations from Delpo which means he’s already exceeded mine.


Taking out a top 100 player in straights and then getting a set off one of the best shotmakers in the game counts as a win in my book.


And aside from a couple of hairy moments where he looked to be alleviating pressure from his wrist (one of which sent his racquet flying out of his hand), he looks to have survived the 2h 42min hour encounter intact.


The man says he needs time – which I take to mean months rather than weeks.


Welcome back big guy.
