Federer entered into the game with a significant 16-5 head-to-head advantage over world no 28 del Potro and started strongly but lost the first set by 5-7.
The Swiss roared back in the game pulling one over his opponent, but the Argentine game no room to Federer in the following sets. Del Potro won 3rd and 4th sets consecutively registering a remarkable win over World No 3 in the US Open.
