Third seed Del Potro, the champion in 2009, was 7-6 (7/3), 6-2 ahead when Nadal retired.
"I hate to retire, but to stay one more set out there playing like this was too much for me", ATP quoted Nadal, as saying. After that, I was just trying to see if it could improve during the match. But no, was not the day.
Grimacing with every sudden move, the 17-time grand slam victor called for the trainer during the changeover on serve at 2-1 in the second. Nadal retired from the match.
"When you win or when you lose like this", Nadalsaid, "you come back home with the feeling that you did all the things that you can do". Six months off you are back.' I know what I have to do to be better as soon as possible. "Every time I step out on this court I'm so grateful that I have the opportunity to play this sport".
"That was not a tennis match at the end". I think I've played more than 10 semifinals here. What may encourage Djokovic, however, is that del Potro only saved three of those ten, denying Isner on his three break point chances in their quarterfinal.

Del Potro will now face Djokovic, the 2011 and 2015 victor, who reached his eighth final at the tournament and 23rd of his Grand Slam career with a 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 stroll past Japan's Kei Nishikori.
