Well, Juan Martin Del Potro has been proving all of the many people (including JMac) who say he'll be top ten right. I never saw it in him before- he seemed ungainly - but last night, I saw it! He's filled out, he's gotten more comfortable and settled in his body, he has a good new haircut- I like longish hair but it didn't suit him - and his game is fantastic. The first set was a stunning display of power and precision, the score- 6/1 Del Potro. Andy fought harder, changed tactics, and made for an interesting second set.
Then, last night I had a very wierd dream about Del Potro. It had to do with finding out he had been in jail for a year or so, and so he was very very tough. I woke up and thought that I had heard that on the TV last night, but as my mind woke up further (coffee helped), I realized I had just had another one of my wacky tennis dreams.
