    Del Potro dismantles Chardy, earns semi-final spot Juan Martin Del Potro put an end to Jeremy Chardy's Cinderella run in Cincinnati with a straight-set victory in the first men's quarterfinal of the day.

    Argentina's Juan Martin Del Potro earned himself a semifinal spot at the Cincinnati Masters with a 6-1, 6-3 rout of lucky loser Jeremy Chardy. Chardy had come into the quarters off the run of his career, capturing the scalps of Andy Roddick, Denis Istomin and Andy Murray along the way.

    His luck ended with Del Potro, who stood on Chardy from the first game of the match. The Argentine started off with a break of Chardy's first serve game and strode out to a 3-0 lead before the Frenchman finally won a game.

    Del Potro got his second break of the match at 1-4 on a volley winner and served out the set with no problem.

    The second set featured better fight from Chardy. He had 3 break points on Del Potro's first service game, but Del Potro was able to hold him off. Chardy took his own turn at digging out of a hole at 1-1. He was in a 0-40 deficit before playing aggressive tennis for the hold.

    Del Potro secured the first break of the second set at 2-2, and closed out the match with another for the easy 6-3 win.

    Del Potro awaits the winner of Novak Djokovic and Marin Cilic in the semifinals.
