Maybe there was some divine intervention from fellow Argentine, Pope Francis in California but whatever it was, Del Potro produced some of his swashbuckling best tennis in a number of years. Okay, sure he lost to Nadal at The Indian Wells finals, (no shame in that) but some might say that having been a set and a break up to Rafa, maybe the Argie ran out of gas. After all, the Argentinian number one took the difficult route to the final, clocking up significant mileage in the quarter and semi finals. The leggy South American had to defeat what most people would consider the best two players in the world in Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic to set up a showdown with the Comeback King, Rafa Nadal.
