"Me angustié mucho porque estaba jugando bien y otra vez me toca sufrir una lesión, aunque me tranquilicé al saber que no tenía nada que ver con la anterior. Siempre es feo abandonar un partido. Ahora me vuelvo a la Argentina. Tendré, en principio, 10 días de recuperación y luego me entrenaré para tratar de estar en Roland Garros", dijo Juan Martín del Potro a LA NACION desde Roma, luego de su abandono ante el escocés Andy Murray en la primera rueda del torneo, por un microdesgarro lumbar.
Good match for JM, his movement looked good, no signs of injury and his service really worked well, most of the time he was very aggressive (by his standards) whenever he got the first service in. Ouanna FH was quite poor and overall he didn't pose much of a treat to JM, even when he got to BP Ouanna looked lost. 2nd round will be a much bigger test for Del Potro.
He couldn't take advantage of his break points. There wasn't TV for that match, but from what I saw in the livescore he could have won the third set, he was 0-40 and 5-4 serving Bolelli...
Bolelli was in good form, so the loss was in the expectations.
