GIFs: Delpo’s Outrageous Forehands

Juan Martin del Potro didn’t have an easy time in his match today against David Ferrer. He slipped and hurt his knee in the first game of the match, but somehow managed to produce some incredible tennis to beat the World No. 4 in straight sets, including two absolutely outrageous forehands to close out the match.

At 5-all in the third set tiebreak, Del Potro cracked a blistering cross-court running forehand to earn a match point.


And then he did it again, this time going down the line on the run. That’s how you close out a match.


He and Ferrer had a nice exchange at the net.


And Del Potro celebrated his hard-fought win.


Wimbledon semis, here he comes.
