Rafael Nadal is hitting the ball as well as he ever has and with that form has made it to the quarterfinals at Wimbledon. The Spanish genius will be taking on Argentina superstar Juan Martin del Potro. Both players are at the top of their game and that should mean that we will be able to watch an exceptional tennis match.
Juan Martin del Potro is the number 5 seed and it is good to see the 2009 US Open Champion making it back to the top of the tennis world. This has been a really good tournament for Juan Martin del Potro. The Argentine has only lost one set all tournament and this shows the top form that Juan Martin del Potro is in. It has been a great year for Juan Martin del Potro as he managed to make the semi-finals at the French Open only one month ago. It is important to note that the Argentine lost to Rafael Nadal in the French Open semi-finals and while that is not the best record for Juan Martin del Potro, Nadal is nowhere as strong on grass as he is on clay. This should be a much more even contest considering we are playing on a grass court and it will be interesting to see if Juan Martin del Potro can get the job done.
On the other side of the court, Nadal is looking very good. The world number 2 will be determined to win back to back grand slams and he is looking very dominant at the moment. The Spanish superstar has won all his matches in straight sets and that is a very noteworthy feat. Juan Martin del Potro will be the first big challenge for Nadal in this tournament and if the Spanish superstar can play as well as he did in the game at Roland Garros, I am expecting the same result.
This should be a very close game. Both players have all the shots in the book and will feel that they can win. While the result could go either way, I am going to predict that Rafael Nadal wins this match. He is looking far too strong at the moment and I see this being the most likely result.
