Del Potro: Nothing to lose against Nadal

ImageThe two men’s quarterfinals scheduled for Wednesday were suspended because
"The changes were not the sun or the rain". Now that, certainly, was unusual.
"I am a human person", the Spaniard, who next faces Argentine Juan Martin del Potro, told reporters following his 4-6 6-3 6-2 6-2 victory.
Both men advanced by winning quarterfinals suspended the night before because of rain.
Schwartzman, a nuisance to the end, forced break points as Nadal served for the match but the 32-year-old eventually wrapped up a 4-6 6-3 6-2 6-2 victory to take another step towards title number 11.
Del Potro fought back tears during his post-match interview and was loudly cheered by fans at Court Suzanne Lenglen.
Dabrowski teamed with India's Rohan Bopanna to win last year's French Open mixed-doubles title and with Pavic to win the Australian Open mixed title earlier this year. So the rain was nothing good for me yesterday.' At some point in time, did you ever think that you could beat Rafa in Paris? I had three surgeries on my left wrist.
"I thought that after nine years I will play a different one, not Rafa or Roger", he added. Additionally, emotion and momentum has to be on the side of Del Potro, who is thrilled to be at this stage, while Nadal faces all the pressure of expectations.
Broaden the scope to all best-of-five-set matches on red clay, and his record is 109-2.
"I am doing well", he said after edging out third seed Cilic 7-6 (7/5), 5-7, 6-3, 7-5.
Rafael Nadal has dropped a set at the French Open for the first time since 2015.
In 2016, Nadal won two straight-set matches, then withdrew before the third round because of an injured left wrist. For Nadal, that happened when he was down a break at 3-2 in the second set, and the delay of a little less than an hour seemed to help him begin to change course against Schwartzman, a 5-foot-7 (1.70-meter) Argentine who was putting almost every shot right where he wanted to in the early stages.
In womens' play, Sloane Stephens and Madison Keys were to play for a spot in the French Open final.
And after the overnight delay, he won the first three games in a row before going on to lose just four games in the remainder of the match.
"I don't have any obligation to win, first thing". Nadal looked much better Thursday than Wednesday, but I think the Argentine has a big enough game-especially if the weather is overcast-to pull off the huge shocker.
Nadal giving up a 6.5 game head start is [1.74] on the Exchange, and I'd expect this to rise by several ticks as the market forms in the run-up to the match, and I'm quite happy to look at this as a more viable proposition.
