Juan Martin del Potro won a first tennis title since his 2009 US Open triumph Sunday, beating Janko Tipsarevic in the final of the Delray Beach ATP event.

Argentina's Del Potro defeated the sixth-seeded Serbian 6-4 6-4 to pass another milestone in his injury comeback.

A former world No.4, and 2008 Auckland champion Del Potro saw his 2010 campaign derailed by a right wrist injury that required surgery and limited him to just three tournaments.
