Del Potro beats Verdasco to reach ATP semifinals

The Argentinian tennisman Juan Martin del Potro won 6-3 4-6 7-6 (7-1) over the Spaniard Fernando Verdasco and keeps his chances real to reach the semifinals stage of the ATP World Tour Finals. Previously, in the opening match of the Group A del Potro lost against the home player Andy Murray. Today's contest showed many alternating situations with del Potro having lots of match points at 5-2 and 5-4 (third set) but all time Verdasco managed to fight back and stay alive. Being impossible to pick a winner, the game went into tie-breaks where nervy del Potro closed it out 7-1 and sealed the stressing victory after 2 hours and 23 minutes. This was the second defeat for Verdasco, therefore he must win on Thursday his final match against Murray and hope for some other favourable results in order to reach Saturda's semi-finals. Also on Thursday Del Potro is gonna have as opponent the world no.1 Roger Federer.
