“This could be one of the best seasons of my career,” Del Potro said.
“I won my first Masters 1000, at Indian Wells, I got my highest ranking ever this season (three) and another Grand Slam final after nine years.
“It’s an amazing year for me, but I also want to keep going because I like to pressurise myself, and I’m excited about that.”
