Juan Martin Del Potro had a dream come true today in Rome where he met the new Pope at a Wednesday service in the Vatican City.

The new Pope, his Holiness Pope Francis, is from Argentina, the first Pope to come from South America.

“It was an incredible experience with Pope Francis, something that I’ll never forget,” said Del Potro. “It was a dream come true for a guy like me. It was an unforgettable moment. I was very nervous before meeting him, to be able to congratulate him and talk with him. He was nice. Everybody knows he is very humble. Today was a day that I’ll remember for ever.”

The 76-year-old Pope, who was born in Buenos Aires, was elected on March 13.

Del Potro won yesterday in Rome. Tomorrow he’ll play Benoit Paire in the third round.
