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.

Kei Nishikori vs Marin Cilic: Examining Significance of 2014 US Open Men's Final

Sep 9 2014 9:21am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Marin Cilic made short work of Kei Nishikori on Monday night to win the 2014 U.S. Open men's final 6-3, 6-3, 6-3 in New York and claim his first ever Grand Slam title. As was mentioned a great deal in the run up to the match, it was something of an unfamiliar major final considering the absence of a select few players, per Eurosport: Nishikori and Cilic had made it past Djokovic and Federer, respectively, in their semi-finals, playing some extraordinary tennis, but unfortunately Mo ...

US Open Tennis 2014 Men's Final: Kei Nishikori vs. Marin Cilic Ends Big 4 Era

Sep 8 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

You might think it's a bit hyperbolic to suggest that the U.S. Open final between Kei Nishikori and Marin Cilic is the end of an era in men's tennis. Perhaps in a few years with a few more titles shared between the Big Four in men's tennis, it will prove to be.  But for now, this Grand Slam final feels like the end of the Big Four's reign of terror over the men's game. Here are a few reasons why. In 2005, M ...

Kei Nishikori's US Open Final Run Further Proves Big Four's Power Is Weakening

Sep 6 2014 6:22pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Don't take this the wrong way—Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray aren't doing anything to lose their grip over men's tennis. It's just that an incredible group of young talent is slowly but surely ending their dominance, and the latest to burst onto the scene is Kei Nishikori. The 10th overall seed at the 2014 U.S. Open was not given much of a chance entering Saturday's semifinal against the ...

What Roger Federer's Loss to Marin Cilic Means for Remainder of 2014

Sep 6 2014 5:15pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Roger Federer entered the 2014 U.S. Open with visions of an 18th career Grand Slam title, but the Swiss star was ousted in the semifinals by Marin Cilic. Sky Sports had the report: Sports Illustrated's Jon Wertheim had an interesting note on the upcoming final: Federer is a five-time U.S. Open champion; however, it has been six years since he last won the tournament. Also, it has been just over two years since Fed's last Grand Slam title at Wimbl ...
