Glass half-full: Argentina’s Juan Martin Del Potro had 40 solid minutes alone to visualize his showdown with Novak Djokovic of Serbia tonight.

Glass half-empty: It’s because he was stuck in an elevator in the Olympic village.

Del Potro will face world No. 1 Djokovic at 3:45 p.m. EDT on Sunday, with the winner advancing to play the winner of Portugal’s Joao Sousa and Robin Haase of the Netherlands.
