Delray Beach Open: Juan Martin del Potro reaches quarter-finals in Florida

ATP Delray Beach Juan Martin del Potro tops Opelka but is his knee o.k

After a tough loss to Reilly Opelka in the semi-final of NY last week, John Isner will play for the place in the final in Delray Beach as well after a 7-6, 6-4 win over Adrian Mannarino in an hour and 33 minutes. His performance on Thursday indicated that if his right knee continues to hold up, he can pick up where he left off at the end of past year.

Argentina's del Potro was beaten in three, gruelling sets by Mackenzie McDonald, 4-6, 6-3, 6-7 and looked in discomfort throughout the match.

There, McDonald saved a break point in game three and another one at 3-3 after a sloppy forehand from Juan Martin, with both serving well in the remaining games to set up a tie break where the American opened a 6-3 lead with a service victor. A forehand error from Opelka at 1-1 in the opening set gifted del Potro an early break and the top seed held that momentum to take the early advantage.

He'll take on Moldova's Radu Albot, who survived a mid-match surge from Nick Kyrgios to advance 6-2, 3-6, 6-3 in a match marred by the Australian's outbursts at a fan and linesman.

Although every investor's goal is typically to beat the market and secure consistent profits, this is no easy accomplishment. Nobody can say for sure if momentum will continue to push to the upside, and investors may be overly cautious at this stage.

Fourth seed Steve Johnson of the U.S. beat Italian Paolo Lorenzi 7-5 7-5.

The Argentine, playing his first tournament since breaking his kneecap at October's Shanghai Masters, held serve to love in the final game to wrap up victory in one hour 13 minutes. "I was having a hard time being accurate with my shots, so I'm glad I served well today", said Johnson.

"I played three matches [this week] after four months away, though, so I think that was the best thing for me."
