Watch: Delpo Seeks Comfort in the Arms of a Linesman
By Chris Oddo
(January 19, 2013) --
Not a lot went right for
Juan Martin del Potro
in his third-round match with
on Saturday. The big man's timing seemed off; his energy seemed low. Worst of all, Del Potro's opponent was executing the perfect gameplan to keep the Tower of Tandil at bay.
Chardy frustrated Del Potro with a steady diet of ground-clinging backhand slice and heat-seaking forehand drives, and that frustration came to a head late in the first set when it became apparent to Del Potro just how hard he was going to have to work to compete against Chardy.
Fortunately for Del Potro, he had sense of humor about his frustrations, and more important, he had a friend to talk to in the back of the court.
