Murray has got a spring in his step after his exhilarating come back victory against Martin Klizan in the R64, and would want to take a decisive step forward in this arch rivalry.
Murray has surely lived up to the expectations and has pitched his challenge for the French Open. His come from behind victory against Klizan is testimony to his return to form which hasn’t been consistent this season. Murray defeated Klizan 6-7,6-2,6-2,7-6 and has surely sent a message to his direct tital rivals.
World No.30 Del Potro hasn’t had the best of his seasons and his recent form shows no shred of encouragement. He reached the Quarter Finals of the Italian Open, and the R32 of the Lyon Open.
Del Potro, though, was leading when he was handed over the game as his opponent Nicolas Almagro retired. The Argentine would definitely want to bring his best game against the No.1 seed.
The pair will play the 10th edition of their age old rivalry in which Murray leads the head to head 6-3. Their previous meeting was in the Round Robin of the Davis Cup world group semi final which was clinched by Del Potro 6-4,5-7,6-7,6-3,6-4.
