Juan Martin del Potro beat Michael Llodra of France 6-4, 6-4 in the Open 13 final Sunday to win his first title of the season and the 10th of his career. The former US Open champion briefly wobbled at 0-30 down when serving for the match, but closed it out when Llodra hit a forehand into the net from the back of the court. Llodra, the 2010 champion, lost his serve once in each set and could not force a single break point chance against the big-serving Argentine, who hit 11 aces. Del Potro lost to Roger Federer in his last two tournaments, including in the ABN Amro final last Sunday in Rotterdam, Netherlands. He raised his hands in the air, closed his eyes and then pumped his fists after beating Llodra.
