Del Potro, who went on to guide Argentina to their first Davis Cup title, was always going to be a danger lurking for one of the top seeds as he continues to work his way back up the rankings after wrist problems nearly ended his career.

"I feel like each week I'm playing better and better tennis", said Anderson, who didn't start his year until February due to various injuries.

The victory set up a clash with former US Open champion Del Potro, who is still working his way back up the rankings after wrist problems that nearly ended his career.

And Del Potro is expecting another exciting clash in their first meeting at Roland Garros. There was del Potro, pounding those intimidating forehands and big serves and only showing signs of his years of wrist troubles when trying to hit his backhand while advancing to the second round with a 6-2, 6-1, 6-4 victory over qualifier Guido Pella in an all-Argentine matchup.

Murray faced Del Potro in two epic encounters a year ago.

World number one Murray came from a set down to beat Martin Klizan.

Almagro was sustaining a left knee injury that had made him withdraw from a match in Rome two weeks ago and for a player whose season has been plagued by injuries, it was an intense blow.

Playing in Paris for the first time in five years following debilitating injuries, Del Potro went through after Spaniard Nicolas Almagro retired in tears with a left knee injury.

Third seed Stan Wawrinka was tested by Alexandr Dolgopolov but came through 6-4 7-6 (7/5) 7-5 to set up an enticing battle against Fabio Fognini.

Asked about facing former US Open champion Del Potro as early as the third round, Murray said: "It's a tough match".

PARIS (AP) - On a day of upsets on Court Philippe Chatrier, up-and-coming youngster Alexander Zverev lost to Fernando Verdasco when their first-round match resumed at the French Open on Tuesday.

In a match littered with 54 unforced errors that the players shared nearly equally, fifth seed Svitolina then started to find her range and struck back. I said to try to be calm.

"The second and third set was not easy, but I was ready with my game at the important moments when I needed, and it worked really good". I'm capable of winning that match.

Wimbledon runner-up Berdych was rolled 7-5 6-4 6-4 by lanky Russian Karen Khachanov, who now faces John Isner after the USA 21st seed progressed 6-3 7-6 (7-3) 7-6 (7-2) with 21 aces against Italian Paolo Lorenzi.

"I hit a lot of balls today and it seems like people don't think I didn't play particularly well today but I did well against a tough opponent".
