Tobias Kamke topples del Potro at rainy Miami

His semi-final win over Djokovic in the California desert had ended the Serbian star's match winning streak at 22, and del Potro then extended Rafael Nadal to three sets in the final. However, he said losing his opening match in Miami wasn't the result of a let-down, either physical or mental.

Miami, Florida: Fifth-seeded Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina crashed out of the Miami ATP Masters on Friday, falling 7-6 (7/5), 6-1 to 89th-ranked German Tobias Kamke in a second-round match disrupted by rain.

Del Potro had just dropped the first-set tiebreaker when the match was halted by rain, the break lasting almost three hours.

The delay clearly did no favors to the world No. 7 from Argentina, although he said that the wait wasn't the problem.
