Many tennis players reacted to the great five-set match played between Rafael Nadal and Juan Martin del Potro in the Wimbledon quarter-finals. The Spaniard prevailed in five sets, 7-5, 6-7(7), 4-6, 6-4 y 6-4, to reach the semifinals. Alizè Cornet tweeted about the match while the football World Cup semifinals was taking place: 'I know that England vs Croatia is on and quite entertaining, but this #RafaDelPo match is seriously insane. From another galaxy.'
Andy Murray was commenting the match on BBC. 'It was a great match and I felt really lucky to watch it. This set is one of the best sets of tennis I have ever seen live. Incredible', he said about the fifth.
The Romanian and world No. 1 Simona Halep wrote: 'The best match I’ve ever seen! Big respect!!!'
Blaz Kavcic: 'After ATP is going to put 25sec clock on court we are not going to see those kind of matches any more... Best match of the year 100%.'
Also the Frenchman Benoit Paire praised the performances of the two players. Darren Cahill wrote: 'The tennis world would be a better place if DelPo and Rafa played each other every week.'
