Roland Garros R1 : Del Potro def. Montañes 6-2 6-7(5) 6-2 6-1

Montañes hasn't been the same since the hernia problems, but even at his best he'd struggle against del Potro.

Albert played a good 2nd set, then Delpo had a timeout and moved even slower in between points. After 2-2 in the 3rd, Montañes was average and del Potro didn't make many errors winning 10 of the last 11 games.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Good win for Juan, far more difficult than the scoreline suggests. Now needs to get that knee sorted out and try to go as far as possible here without endangering his long term health.

Hard to take much from Del Potro's injury and form in this match. He was fantastic in patches and obviously the injury is a concern, but it seemed to hurt a lot more when he was choking away those leads in the second set.

Nice to get through anyhow. Montanes was pretty terrible.

Montanes' meltdown was spectacular stuff. You'd think being the dirt specialist he'd be solid and grind and make it a war but he just completely imploded like Gulbis on a bad day.

The last set was a cakewalk and will have done Del Potro's physical situation no harm at all.

Re: Roland Garros R1 : Del Potro def. Montañes 6-2 6-7(5) 6-2 6-1

I'm worried.

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

Montanes needs to work on his mentality and concentration - that's what let him down today, not his game.

Montanes cant take advatage of injured opponent, we know that much from last years legendary match vs Fog.

You and me both. Juan really can't catch a break with his injuries. I really hope he somehow sorts it out for this tournament.

Albert wore down physically. DelPo raised his game after he took a pain tablet but he's definitely someone to look for to lose early here. Montanes did an awesome job even taking a set, since DelPo was totally knocking him around from the baseline. He got dispirited and lost fight after the middle of the third set.

Good effort from JMDP, but this knee situation is definitely not a good one for him going forward.
