    Del Potro edges Djokovic, takes bronze Eighth seed Juan Martin Del Potro captured an Olympic bronze medal after upending second seed Novak Djokovic in straight sets. The Argentine sealed the victory early Sunday, 7-5, 6-4.

    World No. 9 Juan Martin Del Potro improved to 2-4 against world No. 2 Novak Djokovic following his straight-set win Sunday afternoon. The 23-year-old collected an Olympic bronze medal, having sealed the victory in an hour and 48 minutes.

    "I think I'm the most happy (person in) the world at this moment," Del Potro said.

    "It's our first medal at this Olympic Games. It's the first time in men's singles. I think it means a lot for us. I wish a fantastic day for (my countrymen) to celebrate this with me…. It's amazing. It's history, I think. It's time to celebrate all together.

    "After a really sad day two days ago, it's not easy to recovery and to play these kind of matches. But I had energy in my body, in my heart and that's helped me to play this big challenge. I think I played really close to my best level, like against (Roger) Federer."

    "He played better," said Djokovic. "I had my chances. I didn't use them and he deserved to win. (It's a) disappointing end, but I enjoyed it. It was a pleasure playing for my country."

    Del Potro completed the match with 21 winners and five aces.
