Former US Open champion Juan Martin Del Potro progressed through to the second round of the Rogers Cup with a 6-4 6-0 victory over Jarkko Nieminen.

Nieminen, currently ranked number 50 in the world, competed with his Argentine opponent during the first set but was ultimately unable to deal with the 13 aces Del Potro managed to land.
