del Potro d. Lopez, 67 76 76 in 3 hours and 20 minutes.
That's the first win in almost a year for the Big Fucking Giant, and the match somehow seemed closer than the scoreline even indicates. The good news: He was able to play a 3+ hour match and win, and he was generally able to hold easily (he sputtered toward the end a bit), and he has no pain in his wrist. The I-wouldn't-quite-call-it-bad-just-expected: he's rusty.
On his forehand, "Yeah, sometimes going in; sometimes going very far." In fact, he hit one that went into the upper deck in the third set. "But I need matches and matches, practice, and work. Maybe four, six months I'm ready for to play again a good tennis."
So there we go. Be happy, be excited, but be realistic, guys.
