The popular American battled hard and took the second set to a tie-break, but ultimately succumbed to a 6-4 7-6 (7/3) defeat. “It was a really tough match for me,” said Del Potro. I think I am still far away from the top 10 players. I know it’s a long road to get there.” Next up for Del Potro is Latvia’s Ernests Gulbis, who claimed a 6-2 6-4 win over America’s Daniel Kosakowski.

It was a bad day for third seed Marcos Baghdatis who lost 6-3 6-4 to Lu Yen-hsun of Chinese Taipei. “I didn’t really expect this,” admitted Lu. “He’s a great player with a lost of titles. he has beaten a lot of guys. “I had a little advantage over him. I had one match behind me and he was playing his first match since Wimbledon.”

There was also a straight-sets win for Ryan Harrison, who beat fellow American Michael Russell 6-3 6-4.
