Juan Martin Del Potro
Latest Juan Martin Del Potro Items
Djokovic, undefeated in last year's Finals, improved to 2-0 in Group B with a 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 victory over the hard-hitting Juan Martin del Potro. Federer, who lost to Djokovic earlier in the week, easily defeated Richard Gasquet.
Thanks to the rain and the schedule makers, Serena Williams got an unexpected day off Wednesday at the U.S. Open.
Defending champion Andy Murray could face top-seeded Novak Djokovic only in the U.S. Open semifinals, while Nadal and Federer — who have never played each other at Flushing Meadows — might meet in the quarterfinals.
Isner, who fell from No. 20 to 22 this week, will return to the top 20 after a stimulating Cincinnati run that includes beating three straight top-10 players for the first time in his career.
The world's top-ranked player has never won Cincinnati, losing in the finals four times. Djokovic lost to Roger Federer in the title match last year.
Juan Martin del Potro is no stranger to winning the Citi Open. Or defeating John Isner. On Sunday, he did so for the third and fourth time, respectively, triumphing over Isner 3-6, 6-1, 6-2 at Rock Creek Park.
Isner, the 2007 runner-up in Washington, acknowledged his body feels "like it's a little beat up" after a second consecutive three-setter and a busy 1½ weeks, "but I'll be ready to go tomorrow, for sure."
