  1. - - 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. Full men's drawsheet

  2. - - 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.

  3. - - 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.

  4. - - 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.

  5. - - 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.

  6. - - 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.

  7. - - 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.

  8. - - 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.

  9. - - 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.

  10. - - Del Potro will serve first as he gets the contest with Falla underway.

  11. - - Next up on Court 1, seventh seed Juan Martin Del Potro takes on Alejandro Falla of Colombia for a place in the last 16.
