Odd start between Gasquet and Del Potro. They exchange breaks to start the match then Gasquet holds at love.

Del Pot 1-2

what is del potro doing on these indoor hardcourts? he should be in the south american clay events blasting forehands and backhands from a comfortable height.......i am expecting him to take out one of the big four at the french open this year........


del potro needs clay at the moment........his game needs as much clay as possible.......he can then carry that form on to hardcourts.......why is he making the same mistakes that nadal makes?

Gasquet holds at love for the 3rd time in 5 service games.

He had a chance to go up 5-3 but missed an up the line BH into the open court. Del Pot saved 3 BPs to bring it to 4-4.

Doh! Del Potro finally gets to take it to Gasquet with his FH. Up to this point, Gasquet has forced Delpo to hit BH after BH.

Delpo breaks at love following a lame error on a wide open overhead.

Between the ears.

That first set was on Gasquet's racquet several times, and Delpo was tight! throwing in a number of DFs at critical times.

But this is what you get from Gasquet. He gets a whiff of the finish line then folds like a lawn chair...  :(

yes he's not that clutch.......plus that weak forehand doesn't help matters much.......del potro i don't get what he's doing in indoor hardcourts........he should be on clay and build form for french open.......

Delpo 3-1

I'm getting tired of watching Gasquet.

When does Almagro play? I don't see him on the Livescorehunter lineup.

Vamos Nico!!

Gasquet comes up with his best game of the match. Throws in a S&V and cracks clean, overpowering BHs, one a winner up the line.

Delpo 5-6
