March 17, 2013
Argentine Juan Martin Del Potro beat Novak Djokovic 4/6, 6/4 and 6/4 in the second semifinal of the 1000 Indian Wells Masters and reached the final against Spanish Rafael Nadal, who defeated Swiss Roger Federer.
Del Potro, seventh in the world, spent two hours and 50 minutes to stop on the way to Djokovic, whom he won for the first time on the professional circuit of the ATP Tour.
Del Potro, who won this year in Rotterdam and who settled in the final after leaving in the road to Russian Nikolay Davydenko (42), the German Bjorn Phau (121) and Tommy Haas (19), Andy Murray (3) and now to Djokovic (1), define the title with Nadal, whom he has defeated on 3 occasions and lost another 7.
After victories over Murray and Djokovic, Del Potro is in a good position to face Nadal, who already left in oblivion the injury that kept him out of the circuit for much of 2012.
