Del Potro ends Devvarman's challenge in Dubai

Feb 27 2013, 8:56am CST | by

Dubai, Feb 27 (IANS) Juan Martin Del Potro ended Somdev Devvarman's spirited challenge in the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championship here Wednesday beating the Indian 6-4, 6-4 in the second round.

Dubai, Feb 27 — Juan Martin Del Potro ended Somdev Devvarman's spirited challenge in the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championship here Wednesday beating the Indian 6-4, 6-4 in the second round.

Devvarman, who pulled off a fine win against Russian Igor Kunitsyn in the first round, fell short against the formidable World No.7. A break of serve in each set was enough for the big-serving Argentine to seal the match lasting one hour 28 minutes.

Most of the opportunities for Devvarman came in the first set but he could not capitalise on them, eventually proving costly against a top opponent. The second set saw Devvarman losing the opening game on his serve, putting him on the back foot for the remainder of the contest. The match ended with the World No.315 hitting a backhand long.

Surprisingly, the Indian put 70 percent of his first serves in, 11 percent more than Del Potro, and fired five aces to the Argentine's two.

India's doubles specialists Mahesh Bhupathi and Rohon Bopanna will be in action later in the day with different partners.

Will We See a Novak Djokovic-Rafael Nadal Showdown at 2014 US Open?

Jul 18 2014 3:01am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

It’s actually quite remarkable that Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic have met in the U.S. Open finals as the top two players in the world in two of the last three years. While it should be the odds-on-favorite matchup, recent history shows that No. 1 vs. No. 2 rarely happens at the U.S. Open. What makes it so difficult for the top two players to endure to the U.S. Open finals? Conversely, why is New Y ...

Is Wimbledon 2014 Roger Federer's Last Chance to Win Grand Slam Title No. 18?

Jun 18 2014 3:03am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Wimbledon 2014 will not be the final time Roger Federer competes at a major venue, but is it the last time he will realistically have a chance to win his 18th Grand Slam title? Never mind that Federer is nearing his 33rd birthday (August 8) and that he is trying to become the oldest man to win a major title since Andres Gimeno in 1972. What else would he be playing for? The love of the game? The travel and the grind of training? Maybe, but once a champion, always a believer. There are ch ...

Nadal vs. Murray: French Open Semifinal Is Must-Watch Match

Jun 5 2014 8:17pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

When Rafael Nadal faces Andy Murray in a French Open semifinal, it will be a must-watch match for all of the obvious reasons. Both are top players in the world today, and the two of them have won five of the last eight Grand Slam titles.  But this match is also tantalizing for a different reason altogether—these two rarely do battle these days. While they met in the quarterfinals of the Italian Open—Nadal won a heck of a match—it was the first time they had actually played a ma ...

The Crusader

Jun 5 2014 11:59am CDT | Source: Grantland

It has been easy to forget that Novak Djokovic is the best tennis player in the world. He finished 2013 on a 24-0 run. His record this year is 24-3; his winning percentage is the highest among players on the tour. He has won three titles this year, all ATP Masters 1000 tournaments, the level just below the Grand Slams. He has beaten Rafael Nadal, his biggest rival, the world no. 1, the last four times they played — and those matches were not close. In the final of the Italian ...

So the Indian Wells final will be Rafa Nadal vs Juan Martin Del Potro. Nadal beat Berdych in straight sets some hours back after beating Federer in straight sets in the Quarters. Really surprised to see Rafa in the finals because this is just his 1st hard court tournament since Miami last March and just his 4th tournament since his 7 month injury lay off and the first one where any of the top 3 have been involved. He was quite wonderful tod ...

Roger Federer Can't Escape Aging Curve Any Longer After 2014 French Open

Jun 1 2014 12:55pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

A week after starting out his Roland Garros campaign with an emphatic win, Roger Federer went crashing out of the tournament in five sets to No. 18 Ernests Gulbis in the fourth round 6-7(5), 7-6(3), 6-2, 4-6, 6-3.  It was Federer's first time losing a five-set match at the French Open (he was previously 6-0) and his first time losing before the French Open quarterfinals in nine years. It also marked the thir ...
