the area, suspending play for

Garcia ate and slept during

"I stay positive all the

DELRAY BEACH---Juan Martin del
Potro was stuck with too much idle
time the past two seasons, limited to
14 matches in that span because of a
series of wrist injuries.
So when the 2009 U.S. Open cham-
pion was asked about his second-round
opponent in the Delray Beach Open, del
Potro shrugged his shoulders and dead-
panned: "I don t know him. For two years

It was quite a night for the 27-year-
old del Potro, who beat American Denis
Kudla 6-1, 6-4 on Tuesday in his first
ATP match in 11 months.
Del Potro s win was a relief to tour-
nament organizers after the top two seeds
each had a quick exit. Kevin Anderson,
the No. 1 seed and 2012 champion, was
forced to retire from his match against
Austin Krajicek due to a right shoulder
injury. Hours later, second-seeded Bernard
Tomic of Australia lost to American Rajeev
Ram, 7-6 (3), 6-1.
The 27-year-old del Potro played just
four matches last year and 10 in 2014.
He has faced four surgeries---one on his
right wrist and three on his left---since
defeating Roger Federer for his only major
Once ranked in the top 10, del Potro
is down to No. 1,041.
Against Kudla, he was surprisingly
consistent, losing just 10 points on his
serve in the match---five of them on dou-
ble faults. Rather than pound his once
potent two-handed backhand, del Potro
employed a new-found one-handed slice
Del Potro next plays today against

All-American at the University of Ten-
Anderson had just dropped the first
set to the 103rd-ranked American in a
7-3 tiebreaker when he sauntered to the
sideline, packed his racket bag, shook his
opponent s hand and walked off the court.
Anderson also pulled out of the first tour-
nament of the year in Chennai and retired
from his opening match at the Australian
Open last month due to a left-knee injury.
Krajicek was one of seven Americans
to advance to the second round. Donald
Young, a finalist last year, moved on when
Mikhail Kukushkin of Kazakhstan retired
with a leg injury while trailing 7-6 (3),
3-0. Sixth-seeded Steve Johnson
squeaked past Australian John Millman
6-3, 5-7, 7-6 (10-8), and Sam Querrey
defeated Thiemo de Bakker 4-6, 6-3, 6-
4. Taylor Fritz, who reached the final in
just his third ATP World Tour level tour-
nament in Memphis last week, was clearly
fatigued in a 6-3, 6-3 loss to fellow Amer-
ican Tim Smyczek.
LEWES---Tennis coach Nigel Sears
says his collapse at the Australian
Open was down to some bad sushi,
not heart problems.
Sears, who coaches Ana Ivanovic,
blacked out during the Serbian player s
third-round match last month with
Madison Keys of the United States.
Sears, whose daughter Kim was
expecting a baby with husband Andy
Murray, was taken to the hospital in
Melbourne. Tests in Australia and
Britain, where he lives, indicated his
heart is fine.
He told The Times yesterday: "I had
sushi for lunch 10 days in a row in Mel-
bourne and was fine. But I suppose the
law of averages dictates you get one
dodgy bit of raw fish in that time."
Murray lost to Novak Djokovic in
the final before dashing home for his
daughter s birth.
