Basel, Switzerland (Sports Network) - Hot Argentine star Juan Martin
del Potro was a come-from-behind quarterfinal winner Friday at the Swiss
Indoors tennis event.
Fresh off his title in Vienna last week, the second-seeded del Potro continued
his winning ways by overcoming South Africa's Kevin Anderson 3-6, 7-6 (7-3),
6-2 on the indoor hardcourts at St. Jakobshalle. Anderson out-aced del Potro
by a lopsided 20-2 margin, but the South African also misfired for six double
faults and recorded only one service break, compared to two for the winner.
The formidable del Potro will face third-seeded Frenchman Richard Gasquet in
Saturday's semifinals. Gasquet got past sixth-seeded Russian veteran Mikhail
Youzhny 6-2, 7-6 (7-5) on Day 5.
The 2012 winner of this $1.84 million event will earn $440,000.
