Melbourne: US Open champion Juan Martin del Potro has won his first-round match at the Australian Open, defeating American Michael Russell 6-4, 6-4, 3-6, 6-2.

Fourth-seeded Del Potro withdrew from an exhibition tournament at Kooyong in Melbourne last week because of an injured wrist, but he appeared to move well on Monday in his first-round match.

He`ll next play the winner of a first-round match between Arnaud Clement of France and American James Blake.
