Acapulco, Guerrero, February 28, 2018. Like two gladiators, David Ferrer and Juan Martín Del Potro gave an exciting show at Abierto Mexicano Telcel, presented by HSBC, where the Spaniard fell in three sets, 6-4, 4-6 and 6-3.
“I’m very tired, I ran a lot, it was a tremendous game, David is a rival who never gives up, now to think about tomorrow’s match, Thiem is one of the favorites and I will try to do my best,” he explained.
Although ‘King David’ lost the first set he came from behind to break the so-called ‘Torre de Tandil’ that allowed him to even the score
The game was defined in the sixth game of the third set, where the Spaniard avoided two breaks and forced ‘Delpo’ to commit unforced errors but it was not enough to take the victory.
“It was a very tough match, I wasted opportunities and with Del Potro that is expensive, I tried it, the audience is spectacular, they love me as if it were my house, I am with the affection of the public and with the last applause. I do not know, I do not want to make plans, I do not know if it will be my last year, but an ovation like that is why one plays tennis, “said Ferrer.
