LONDON (AP) — Juan Martin Del Potro made a winning return to Grand Slam competition on Tuesday, defeating Albert Ramos of Spain 6-2, 7-5, 6-1 in the first round at Wimbledon.

The eighth-seeded Del Potro did not play at the French Open because of respiratory problems.

Facing an opponent playing only his fourth tournament on grass, the big-hitting Del Potro had 34 winners — including 10 aces — and maintained his record of always advancing to the second round at the All England Club in six appearances.
