Tennis upset in the desert – Del Potro over Djokovic

It is not an easy task to beat world no. 1 Novak Djokovic, but Juan Martin del Potro pulled off the big upset just a while ago advancing in three sets, 4 – 6, 6 -4, 6- 4.  It was 96 degrees when the match got under way and by the 9th game in the third set, del Potro was on fire.  Huge win for the Argentine who famously upset Roger Federer to claim the US Open title in 2009 and then was out a year with a serious wrist injury.  Del Potro will meet Rafael Nadal tomorrow in the final.  Nadal defeated Berdych, 6 – 4, 7 -5 in the earlier semifinal.

In the women’s final, Caroline Wozniacki (Rory Mcilroy’s girlfriend) will take on Maria Sharapova.
