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

Good effort from Mannarino, he seems to be a bad match-up for Del Potro.

Lol, who the hell asked this question? What about Roddick and Ferrero?

Q. Are you conscious of being, yourself and Lleyton Hewitt, the only two outside the big three who knows what it is to win a Grand Slam?

JUAN MARTIN DEL POTRO: Yeah, but I think the favorites are the same like always. The top four guys is the favorite for this tournament. Also you have many dangerous player who can beat everyone, like Monfils, Tsonga, Roddick, Mardy Fish, ans Ferrer as well. Everything can happen.

Journalists who don't know anything about Tennis and are fed scripts for them to use. Let me guess...it was a woman? IF so then she was hired because she has a nice rack or something.

Del Potro is too kind in including Monfils, Roddick, Fish, and Ferrer. Tsonga is the only one who deserves to be mentioned in that light.

shaky start from the goat, he needs to watch out he cant allow himself to have these lapses in his game from now on. his next two opponents might not pose much of a threat but he needs to play himself into form to win the slam.

Tougher than I would have liked. :unsure: But a win is a win.

Terrible start for Del Potro :o, He`d just survived because Mannarino was not experienced enough to beat him. Fortunately for the Argentine he has a couple of two more easy matches to reach 4th round to warm up. But I don`t see him going that far playing in this way.
