JUAN MARTIN DEL POTRO
Two big-hitters do battle on Arthur Ashe and there should be plenty of spectacular winners on show between two players who don't pull any punches. Due to his monstrous forehand, a common tactic used against Del Potro is to target his backhand but that is an area of his game that has improved significantly in recent years so Verdasco may need to mix things up regularly in order to destabilise his opponent.
Verdasco's Achilles' heel throughout his career has been his inconsistency during matches, but this was not the case against Murray with his level rarely dropping over the course of the match. If he can maintain this standard against Del Potro then he will give himself chances but the likelihood is that he will be overpowered, with the Argentine fancied to win in four sets.
