Juan Martin Del Potro, who has been consistently battling injuries and illness since winning the 2009 U.S. Open, says that after he beat David Ferrer in the Wimbledon quarterfinals, a lot of things rushed through his head.

“It's my first semifinals here, another semifinals in Grand Slam after couple of years,” he said. “I think I'm in the fight again with the top guys. That is my challenge for the future. And [to] be one of the only four players in this tournament, it means a lot for the future and for myself.”
