Argentine Juan Martin del Potro showed on Court One all his sheer talent and versatility and most importantly, just why he may be a challenger for the Championships this year.

With a fluent service, powerful forehand, exceptional footwork, the 20 year-old produced a spectacular performance to beat Frenchman Arnaud Clement 6-3, 6-1, 6-2 in one hour and 27 minutes.

Playing his third straight Wimbledon, del Potro broke his opponent’s serve seven times and hit 27 winners for a place in the second round where he will meet childhood idol Lleyton Hewitt.

Hewitt eased into the second round with a 6-4, 6-1, 6-1 victory over Robby Ginepri of the United States.
