Juan Martin Del Potro: Played a 'solid' match against Gasquet
Juan Martin Del Potro admitted he has little to lose when he takes on Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer at the ATP World Tour Finals in London.
The Argentine won his opening round robin match against Richard Gasquet 6-7 6-3 7-5 but finds himself in the toughest of the two groups with Federer and Djokovic having won the last three season finales at the O2.

However, following a traumatic day in which he was robbed at Paris's Gare du Nord railway station, Del Potro was just relieved to have won his opening match.
"I'm so happy to qualify once again here. I have fantastic memories from Wimbledon and the Olympics and I always play well in London," Del Potro said.
"Richard has an unbelievable backhand and he is a good fighter, but in the end I played solid and won.
"Hopefully I can beat Novak and Roger. It's going to be really tough, but I don't have anything to lose against them."
