Juan Martin Del Potro of Argentina reached the semifinals of the Dubai Duty Free ATP 500 Tennis Tournament as he outclasses his German opponent Daniel Brands in straight sets 6-4, 6-2 in just over an hour. The world no.
7, who is seeded 4th at the event, was always in control of the match and never troubled by his opponent whom he broke once in the first set and twice in the second to record his 11th win of the season in one hour and two minutes.
The 2009 US Open champion will face either world no. 1 Novak Djokovic or 7th seed Andres Seppi of Italy for a place in the finals. He was very happy on his performance as he said, “I played really well in the second set and I took my chance to break his serve at the end of the first set,” said del Potro.
“He made a few mistakes with his forehand and it was a really fast game when he was serving. I tried to be focused on my service game.” .
