    Juan Martin del Potro won his first title in his first final since capturing the 2009 U.S. Open with a 6-4, 6-4 victory over Janko Tipsarevic on Sunday.

    The 22-year-old del Potro, on the comeback trail after missing most of last season with a right wrist injury, looked fatigued throughout the finals of the Delray Beach International Tennis Championships.
