A day after throwing his shoes in frustration, Juan Martin del Potro won 18 of 23 games on Thursday to reach the third round at Wimbledon with a 6-7 (7), 6-1, 6-0, 6-4 win over Olivier Rochus.

Del Potro took his shoes off after the match was suspended by darkness after the first set on Wednesday and threw one out of the stadium and the other one deep into the crowd.

When he came back out onto Court 2 on Thursday, he dominated, winning 12 of the first 13 games.

Del Potro won the 2009 U.S. Open but has struggled with injuries since.
