• Del Potro and Monfils clash in Tuesday marquee match

    2/12/13 12:55 PM | Cheryl Murray
    Del Potro and Monfils clash in Tuesday marquee match Juan Martin Del Potro and Gael Monfils will take the court in perhaps the most interesting of the Rotterdam first round matches.

    Last year, world No. 7 Juan Martin Del Potro was just coming back off an extensive injury break. The Argentine, who excels on speedy indoor courts, came somewhat out of nowhere to advance to the finals. He lost there to Roger Federer, but it was the start of an impressive comeback that has landed Del Potro back in the top 10.

    He starts off his 2013 Rotterdam against Gael Monfls, another player on the comeback trail after a long injury time out. Monfils is ranked 107 in the world, but he is certainly not a typical player ranked outside the top 100. The Frenchman, who once took up residence himself in the top 10, is not yet back up to 100%, but he can make life difficult for Del Potro.

    Del Potro has only played one tournament in 2013, which resulted in an abysmal third round ouster at the Australian Open at the hands of Monfils' countryman Jeremy Chardy.

    Monfils has been far more prolific than Del Potro this year. The Frenchman has already played 4 tournaments and he has a quarterfinal in Doha and a semi in Auckland to show for his efforts.

    The court favors Del Potro's brand of aggressive tennis over Monfils' retrieving, but the Argentine's form is a question mark right now. Del Potro should advance, but an upset would not be a complete shock.
