PARIS Nicolas Almagro burst into tears as he was forced to retire from his second-round match against Argentine 29th seed Juan Martin del Potro at the French Open on Thursday.

Zverev is a 20-year-old who won the Italian Open last week, raising his profile considerably, but he has yet to reach the second week of a Grand Slam tournament. First up on Court Philippe Chatrier is seventh-seeded Johanna Konta against Su-Wei Hsieh. Tuesday, May 30, 2017.

Del Potro, seeded 29th, needed only one hour and 49 minutes to win the match, 6-2, 6-1, 6-4, reports Efe.

Stan Wawrinka and Juan Martin Del Potro both registered straight set wins in their respective first round matches at the French Open on Tuesday. Afterward, Lokoli said he wasn't being a sore loser but rather that he didn't want to shake because he thought Klizan was faking an injury during the match and was generally "disrespectful". He beat qualifier Guido Pella 6-2, 6-1, 6-4 in an all-Argentine matchup, showing no sign of the shoulder and back problems that hampered him at the Lyon Open last week and did not face a single break point. Considering the setting, the result is not all that surprising: Konta has now lost all three matches she's played at the French Open over her career.

Other winners included No. 18 Nick Kyrgios and No. 5 Elina Svitolina.

Clay has never been del Potro's best surface - his power-based game is better suited to faster surfaces, such as hard courts - but he did reach the French Open semifinals in 2009 before losing to Roger Federer.

But Wawrinka did well on the points that mattered including in the second set tiebreak.
