He May Have Lost Today’s Epic Wimbledon Semifinal, But Juan Martin Del Potro Was Unreal In The Fourth Set Tiebreak
There’s no shame in losing to the world’s best tennis player, as Juan Martin del Potro did today. Another massive upset wasn’t in the cards at Wimbledon as Novak Djokovic pulled out a 7-5, 4-6, 7-6 (2), 6-7 (6), 6-3 victory in the day’s first match It was the longest men’s semifinal in Wimbledon history and it had no shortage of amazing moments. But the effort by del Potro to stave off double match point in the fourth set was the best.
The three points shown in this video (footage courtesy ESPN, via BI Sports) are everything we love about tennis. It’s such an emotional, exhausting sport, and watching del Potro guts out two incredible points to save the match, plus a third to take the set, showcased all of his ability and passion. The Wimbledon crowd showed him serious love for it, and we would like to do the same:
