ESTORIL: Argentine Juan Martin del Potro came from 4-1 down in the second set to beat top-seed Robin Soderling 6-4, 7-5 in the quarter-final of the ATP-WTA Estoril Open.

Del Potro trailed in the second set when heavy rain interrupted afternoon play as he faced the Swede whom he had never played on clay. After the storms passed, del Potro – who saved five of six break points and served six aces – came back out in fading light and broke Soderling twice to win after just under two hours of play.
