Juan Martin Del Potro, Argentine tennis No.1, has been eliminated in the last-16 stage of the Montreal Masters 1000 competition, losing out in straight sets to local favourite Milos Raonic.
Del Potro who is seeded sixth in Canada showed disappointing form throughout the match and was defeated 7-5, 6-4 by Raonic who used his aggressive style to go on an triumph in an impressive one hour and 49 minutes. This was the first time Delpo had played against Raonic on the majors circuit.
With the US Open beginning on August 25, Delpo has one more chance before the Open to find his form in the Masters 1000 event in Cincinnati, United States.
