  • Del Potro handles Dolgopolov, into Madrid semis

    5/12/12 3:22 AM | Ricky Dimon
    Juan Martin Del Potro takes care of Alexandr Dolgopolov in straight sets on Friday in Madrid. Next up for Del Potro is a semifinal date with Tomas Berdych.

    Juan Martin Del Potro continued his hot streak on Friday with a 6-3, 6-4 victory over Alexandr Dolgopolov in the quarterfinals of the Mutua Madrid Open. Del Potro, the Estoril champion last weekend, improved to 31-6 for the season after one hour and 23 minutes.

    Dolgopolov played decent tennis from the baseline, but horrific serving made for the relatively lopsided scoreline. The 22nd-Ukrainian put in a dreadful 31 percent of his first deliveries, including 27 percent in the opening set. Dolgopolov broke once in the first, but two donations of serve allowed Del Potro to close it out at 5-3.

    Set two featured more of the same, although this time Del Potro was more effective on his own serve. The 11th-ranked Argentine struck eight aces and did not come close to facing a break point as he finished off the proceedings with a final hold at 5-4.

    Del Potro is now 10-0 on clay in 2012 and 22-0 in sets in those matches. That streak will be put to the test on Saturday by Tomas Berdych, a straight-set winner over Fernando Verdasco.
