- - DEL POTRO 6-2 6-2 - GAME, SET & MATCH! Del Potro had been leading 5-0 in the second set, and even enjoyed a match point, before being pegged back to 5-2. But the Argentine makes no such mistake with his second match point, firing a backhand down the line to seal it when Falla hits into the net. Next up for Del Potro will be home hope Michael Llodra.

- - DEL POTRO 6-2 - SET! - Falla, needing to hold to stay alive in the set, drops the first two points but fights back for a hold point. Del Potro forces deuce, fails to convert two set points and fights back one hold advantage before finally clinching the opener with a triple-break.
- - DEL POTRO 5-2 - Much better from the Argentine. Though his first serve still isn't causing Falla too many problems, Del Potro is razor-sharp on the seconds and takes a love-service game. He's one away from the first set.
- - DEL POTRO 4-2 - BREAK! Third game in succession against the serve as Del Potro continues to look more assured in returning, racing into a triple break point before converting the first with a smooth cross-court forehand.
- - DEL POTRO 2-3 - BREAK! - Falla breaks back! It took four break points, including three from deuce, to do so but the Colombian is able to exploit timid service to get his own first break.
- - DEL POTRO 3-1 - BREAK! - First blood Juan Martin! Falla nets on the second of a double break point and the Argentine gets an early edge in the opening set.
- - DEL POTRO 2-1 - Better from the Olympic bronze medallist as with the exception of a double fault on point three, he blasts his way to a comfortable hold this time around.
- - DEL POTRO 1-1 - Falla, likewise, lacks authority in his first service game despite looking crisp in the initial couple of points. It goes to deuce but much like Del Potro, he holds from there for 1-1.
- - DEL POTRO 1-0 - Not a massively convincing start to life in serve for the Argentine as Falla earns deuce from a double hold point, but Del Potro is able to force him into net twice to hold from there.
- - Del Potro will serve first as he gets the contest with Falla underway.
- - Next up on Court 1, seventh seed Juan Martin Del Potro takes on Alejandro Falla of Colombia for a place in the last 16.
