ROTTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) - Juan Martin Del Potro beat Julien Benneteau 7-6 (2), 6-3 on Sunday to win the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament, going one better than his runner-up spot last year.

Benneteau managed what no other player at the tournament achieved - breaking Del Potro's serve twice in the first set - but struggled to hold his own serve against the big-hitting Argentine and crumbled in the second set.

The 2009 U.S. Open winner was the runner-up in Rotterdam last year.
