Del Potro Crashes Out to Hewitt at Wimbledon

Juan Martin del Potro became the highest seeded men's casualty today in Wimbledon's second round.

The fifth seeded Argentine lost 6-3, 7-5, 7-5 to 2002 champion Lleyton Hewitt who was the steadier of the two ballers. The Aussie hit 43 winners to only 14 errors, 14 aces, 23 of 28 net approaches, and converted 4 of 9 break chances.

JMDP was one of the men who were affected by the withdrawal of Rafael Nadal taking the Spaniard's place in the top half of the draw. You think he's happy about that switch-a-roo now? Ugh.

Lleyton will next face Germany's Philipp Petzschner for a spot in the Round of 16.
