Del Potro Dismisses Berdych


by ATP Staff | 18.02.2012


No. 3 seed Juan Martin del Potro dismissed second seed Tomas Berdych 6-3, 6-1 to reach the final of the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam Saturday. "I'm very happy as it's my first victory against a Top 10 player this year. It means a lot for my confidence," del Potro said.


"I played a really good match today, my best of this tournament. And now I'm one step from winning the tournament, so I'm working for that goal."


Del Potro won 88 per cent of his first serve points, firing nine aces. He broke the Czech twice in each set to lock up the victory in one hour and 15 minutes, securing his third straight win over the World No. 7. "I served well and I was really confident with my forehand and backhand," said del Potro. "I took all the chances Tomas gave to me. I broke his serve many times which helped me play more relaxed."


The Argentine, making his debut at the ATP World Tour 500 event, is bidding to lift his 10th ATP World Tour trophy. He triumphed twice in 2011, at the Delray Beach International Tennis Championships (d. Tipsarevic) and Estoril Open (d. Verdasco).
