Good quality matches at the Estoril Open.
Del Potro trashed the 2 times champion and seed nr.7 Albert Montanes 6-2 6-2.
“I think I played better than yesterday and my confidence is growing,” said del Potro. “It is important for this tournament and the next tournaments I play. I think I am playing better than I did in the last Davis Cup tie. The Estoril crowd support me and that helps.”
Delpo will play Wawrinka in the semifinals. The Swiss breezed past Robin Haase 6-1 6-4 in less than 1 hour.
On the other side of the draw, Richard Gasquet defeated qualifier Munoz-De La Nava 7-6 (1) 6-2 to play Ramos (6-2 6-3 over Souza) in the semifinal.
Prediction? The final should be Del Potro – Gasquet.
