Ferrer, del Potro to meet in ASB Classic semifinal

Ferrer, del Potro to meet in ASB Classic semifinal

The Argentine world number 12 now goes into a final against 2016 Auckland champion Bautista Agut, who came from behind in an epic a battle against Dutchman Robin Haase featuring three tie-breaks.

The 2009 US Open champion was faced with an unsurprising show of endurance from his Spanish opponent, who was typically dogged in a contest that lasted one hour and 47 minutes.

Roberto Bautista Agut received a big confidence boost going into the Australian Open when he beat Juan Martin del Potro in three sets in the ATP Auckland Classic final on Saturday. But both times Del Potro was able to rely on his running forehand to save himself and at 4-4 he broke the Spaniard before successfully serving for the match.

Del Potro struck in the first game to break but was forced to repeat the feat in the seventh game after Ferrer had levelled matters at 3-3.

"I like to play here, I feel good being here in Auckland". "The end was unbelievable when I saw the ball in I went insane, I was so happy".

"It's wonderful to me just to be playing tennis against after all my wrist problems".

"Today the conditions were hard and he was a hard opponent, serving very well and a lefty, playing with a very flat backhand", Bautista Agut said.

He then blitzed the second set, unleashing his trademark ground-stroke game and playing relentlessly accurate shots to settle the match.

"When I saw the ball in, I went insane", Bautista Agut said.
