Match point from Nadal's win over Del Potro in the semifinals at Roland Garros: The Argentine’s strengths were quite apparent in the opening set, one where del Potro frequently posed major questions on Nadal’s service games. In the first game of the match, Nadal went down love-30, but eventually held. Nadal’s kingdom was even more imperiled at 1-all, when del Potro reached love-40.  Another threat came at 2-all, Nadal again down love-30. Nadal avoided this crisis courtesy of two consecutive drop shots short to del Potro’s forehand. Given how far over del Potro was camping in his backhand corner, this was a good strategy that paid its share of dividends and in time, del Potro’s awareness of that threat heightened, opened up the court for more of Nadal’s pet shot, his crosscourt forehand. Then came the pivotal game of the match. Nadal served at 4-all, 15-30.

So much for the aging process and the new generation expected to shove them to one side. Federer returned from a five-year Grand Slam drought to beat Nadal in last year’s Australia
