Del Potro victorious in Acapulco

Juan Martin del Potro defeated Kevin Anderson in straight sets on Saturday to claim the Mexican Open.

The sixth-seeded Argentine beat the big-serving South African 6-4, 6-4 to claim a seventh-straight career win over Anderson.

The 29-year old former US Open champion needed just a single break in each set, taking the first set with a break in the seventh game and repeating the feat with an early break in the second.

He remained largely untroubled on serve as he wrapped up a comfortable victory in 1 hour and 41 minutes.

It was Del Potro’s first title since the Stockholm Open last year and his 21st career singles title.
