The young Argentinean have shown some promises in the ongoing US OPEN after defeating Roger Federer to get to the Last four but is set to do another impossible against the Spainard who have recovered from a bad patch recently.
Rafa Nadal is expected to produce some spectacular fireworks at the U.S. Open on Friday, but Del Potro would not give it a easy fight and would make it a match to remember.
Martin del Potro ruined the potential Nadal showdown with Roger Federer in the semi-final with a superb defeat of the Swiss maestro on Wednesday.
Del Potro and Nadal have met 13 times but many fans will look to their clash at the same point at Flushing Meadows in 2009 when the Argentine beat the Spaniard.
He then went on to beat Federer in a five-set thriller in the final to lift his only grand slam title.
“Physically I’m not in the perfect conditions but when you play semi-finals on the grand slam, everything can happen,” said Del Potro, who has also had to fight off illness.
