Juan Martin del Potro struggled a lot against Gilles Simon, but the world No. 4 still managed to prevail in four sets, 7-6(1) 7-6(5) 5-7 7-6(5). After that the match was postponed until Tuesday after that Simon had won the third set, del Potro closed the match playing some of his best tennis.
Analyzing the upcoming quarter-final meeting against the Spaniard Rafael Nadal that will take place on Wednesday on Centre Court, del Potro said: 'It will be a different match that we played in Paris few weeks ago', he admitted recalling the French Open straight sets loss, 6-4 6-1 6-2. 'I will try to hold my service games most of the time. If I want to beat him, I have to come to the net very often and play hard with my forehands, with my backhands, and try to take all the chances.'
Del Potro did not have a day off as he played two days in a row, but he doesn't feel too worried ablut it: 'Hopefully I feel good for tomorrow. I been doing treatment already, looking forward for being ready for tomorrow. But I think I will be in good conditions. My body feels okay. Normally I feel a little bit tired. It’s a big chance for me to face Rafa tomorrow.'
