Share

Juan Martin del Potro began his season with a comfortable victory over Canadian Denis Shapovalov in the Round of 16 at the Auckland Classic on Wednesday.

"I had luck to break his serves twice and that's it, then I held my serve in all the second set, saving break points, playing good tennis down the line, and I had to take a risk playing against David because he's a fighter", del Potro said. "We played a great match".

"It's tough every week but I think it's possible to do it".

The second-seeded del Potro will aim for his first Classic title since 2009, while the fifth-seeded Bautista Agut will seek his second crown in three years.
