It seems quite a while ago now but it actually wasn’t that long ago that Juan Martin Del Potro and Andy fought for Gold in Rio, both then travelled to New York for the final slam of the year and after falling to Nishikori and Wawrinka respectively and now they meet in Glasgow in what is lined up to be an epic encounter!
You won’t find two more passionate players than these two. The emotions from both on court is second to none, they give their all every time and deserve the success they have achieved so far in their careers.
A competition like Davis Cup just magnifies that passion you will see from these two and opening the weekend with this tie will surely set up the weekend for an epic weekend of tennis in the Scottish capital.
Everything about this match-up is perfect, both thrive on big occasions and the tennis they have both been producing these last couple of months has been incredibly high.
I find it tough to call this one. It will be interesting to see who gets off to the quicker start in this one, the majority of the crowd will obviously be on the side of Andy but Delpo has a thing for getting the crowd on his side, is there someone who doesn’t love the big man?
Andy v Juan in Davis Cup. Anything can happen but one thing that is guaranteed?
