No. 5 seed Juan Martin Del Potro made an early exit at the Miami Masters as Germany's Tobias Kamke dispatched the Indian Wells finalist.
Argentina's Juan Martin Del Potro came into Miami off a fantastic run at the Indian Wells Masters. The No. 5 seed defeated both Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic en route to his final showdown with Rafael Nadal. Del Potro was up a set and a break before Nadal came storming back to win in 3 entertaining sets.
Apparently the efforts in the California desert taxed Del Potro. The Argentine faded away in his second round match on Friday night, with Kamke snagging a 7-6(5), 6-1 upset victory.
Kamke put on an outstanding display of tennis, far above his No. 89 ranking. He played clever tennis in the first set, exploiting Del Potro's fatigue and eventually outlasting the Argentine to take the set lead in the tiebreaker.
Del Potro lost his way in the second, but Kamke also held his nerve to serve out the match to love for the straight set win.
Kamke moves into the third round, where he will take on Austria's Jurgen Melzer.
