"This is a blow for me because this is one of the tournaments that everybody dreams of winning. Now I have to overcome disappointment and to fully recover, to be ready on 100 per cent for the next challenge," said Del Potro, who reached semifinals at Roland Garros in 2009. After failure of Murray and Del Potro, Grigor Dimitrov will climb with two places in the set and will be number 26 in the main draw. The draw for the tournament will be drawn tomorrow.
