Johannesburg, Nov 5: Argentine tennis player Juan Martin Del Potro has beaten Richard Gasquet 6-7, 6-3, 7-5 in a terrific contest in the opening night session at the ATP World Tour Finals in London.
According to the BBC, Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer meet in the same group on Tuesday.
In front of a near-capacity crowd of around 17,000, the Argentine took his record since the US Open to 16 wins in 18 matches, the report said.
Del Potro said that hopefully he can beat both Djokovic and Federer but it is going to be really tough for him, adding that he does not have anything to lose against them.
On a day when both Djokovic and Rafael Nadal had suggested the season finale should leave London when the current contract expires in 2015, Del Potro and Gasquet put on a show that lit up the arena, the report added. (ANI)
