Juan Martin del Potro sent Andy Roddick into retirement when he beat him at the U.S. Open last September, but hey, no hard feelings. Roddick is in South America to play a few exhibition matches with Del Potro, who is skipping Australian Open tune-up events in favor of training at home.
According to Argentine press, Roddick and Del Potro will play an exhibition match today at the Cantegrill Country Club in Punta del Este, Uruguay, and then head to Cúpula de la Sociedad Rural in Buenos Aires for another match tomorrow. The exhibitions will also feature Argentinian legends Guillermo Vilas and Jose Luis Clerc. For Roddick, these exhibitions offered him a chance to visit South America, something he says he did not get to do much during his playing career.
