Del Potro, who won the bronze medal at the London Olympics, will face Britain’s Andy Murray in the final, and is already assured of a better medal than he got four years ago.

Murray had won the gold medal at the London Olympics, and could become the first tennis player ever to have 2 Olympic gold medals in the singles competition.

“It would mean a lot, obviously,” Murray said after beating fourth-seeded Kei Nishikori of Japan, 6-1, 6-4. “It’s obviously not an easy thing to do. That’s why it’s not been done before.”
