Mannarino had so many chances, he could have won this match, Delpo still nowhere near his 2009 form, making too many UE, his serve still WTA level, he hit few 1st serves over 200km/h, his fastest was 206. Also he looked tired to the end, really that serve and stamina needs to improove, good victory for him, but first guy who will play better than Mannarino will send him home.

Very slow and bad start from JMDP, glad he got his act together after that pathetic first set.
Impressive attempt by Mannarino, sadly (for him) he was unable to take his chances when they came.

He is hitting the ball pretty poorly. Dunno if he will even reach the QF.

Del Potro almost looked distressed after the first set, I'm a little surprised he pulled it together so well. Even in poor form he should still make at least R4, likely QF and I wouldn't count him out at that stage.

Wasn't great but wasn't exactly awful either. Draw is good though so lets just hope he plays himself into some decent form.

Slow start but Mannarino played a very decent game and some of his returns were awesome, very deep and fast. Not an easy opponent at all, delpo needs to put more intensity and play with much more aggression, he has the game to do it.

Mannarino played better than I expected from the scoreline
But Delpo was always going to have too big a game for Adrian

Good win for Juan... He will get better with the matches

Del Potro has got to work on that fitness, looks like he might fall apart if facing a fit opponent in a day time session during the next week
