Del Potro wins 1st match at French Open since 2012

Del Potro wins 1st match at French Open since 2012”

Zverev was one of the outside favorites after impressing on his way to victory at the Italian Open earlier this month.

"There were a lot of questions about how I would perform today", Kyrgios told reporters.

His next opponent, South Africa's Kevin Anderson, is another bludgeoning server who will try to match his power game, and possibly get into his head - the space Kyrgios needs to defend most ardently if he wants to progress. Obviously been struggling physically. Rafael Nadal has the opportunity to become the first player in the Open Era to win a Grand Slam on ten occasions.

Having had less time than he might have wished to adjust between Geneva, where he took the title on Saturday, and Paris, he took the longer view in upbeat comments after the match. "But I served really well at important times of the match".

"I'm always going to be confident".

"I was kind of just looking for the right person to guide me and keep me on track", he said. "I will do all the right things after this. and hopefully it keeps pulling up okay for me to play". It's more about being consistent and obviously just finding that motivation every day to stand the grind and give 100 percent.

Tsonga, who has never lost to a player ranked as low as No. 91 Olivo at a Grand Slam, broke back on the last of his three break points.

"I have been doing a lot of treatment during the day and at night as well", Kyrgios said.

"When I see the ball hit the line, I call the ball good".

"I just felt comfortable with him around". I don't think I know enough about it.

The 22-year-old said he elected to accept a steady, if not constant, voice in his ear in order to "knuckle down" and bridge the gap between his current altitude (No. 19) and the very top. I saw it was a bit of a mix-up. "This is what really bothered me". I mean, I have no problem with gay marriage at all.

"He goes for his shots and plays aggressive", Murray said of Kuznetsov afterward. What I like about clay?

'I also don't like how my shoes get dirty. "I don't train too much on clay as it makes my auto dirty".

Lokoli was angered by what he interpreted as gamesmanship, saying Klizan appeared to be dogging it in moments - such as the 6-0 fourth set - hampered by his leg: "I'm wondering if he's going to retire or no, because now he's not running anymore, you know?"

His best result at the French Open was reaching the semifinals in 2009, just months before he won his Grand Slam title in NY. "I'm feeling good, I'm playing good tennis and I'm happy to be back in Paris".

Lokoli later said Klizan was the one who did not respect him because he kept simulating injuries throughout their match. Do you feel that you're an entertainer, also? 'I like making the crowd enjoy what they see. It kind of went from there. He's simple but unbelievable to watch.
