Juan Martin del Potro’s third round match against Jeremy Chardy had its fair share of highs and lows. In the first two sets, for Del Potro, mostly lows. He hung his head, he sought consolation from a line judge in the form of a hug. Watch!
Later, while running for a shot, Del Potro found himself running into the photographer’s pit. One quick-clicker got this lovely shot.
Looks like we found the lucky photographer who got up close and personal with the Tower of Tandil.
Take a breather, Delpo. You deserve it!
But in the end, Chardy prevailed, upsetting the 6th-seeded Argentine 6-3, 6-3, 6-7, 3-6, 6-3.
