Juan Martin del Potro defeats Alejandro Falla in Paris to reach the quarter-finals of the competition.

Argentine Juan Martin del Potro moved into round three of the Paris Masters this evening at the expense of Alejandro Falla.

Del Potro only dropped four games throughout the entire match against his Colombian opponent, two of which came in the opening set.

Falla was unable to prevent Del Potro from taking control of the match during the second set as the world number eight produced a series of forehand winners.

As a result Del Potro raced into a five-game lead and despite Falla chalking up a break of serve, the 24-year-old broke straight back to book his place in the next round.

He will now face France's Michael Llodra for a place in the semi-finals.
