Wrist Surgery Looming for Del Potro? Season in Doubt
I hope my Google Translate is wrong because this report out of Argentina is not positive on the Tower of Tandil. The story suggests that Juan Martin Del Potro might miss the rest of the tennis season if surgery is required.
According to the Clarin story (under Google translation), Del Potro has returned to Rochester to visit wrist specialist Dr. Richard Berger at the Mayo Clinic and surgery is possible. If that happens the US Open Open winner would be out another 3-6 months almost ending his season.
Del Potro is also said to have been suffering panic attacks in the report, but no longer.
Even if given the all clear it’s still unlikely Del Potro would play Madrid or the French Open due to his lack of training and preparation.
But Del Potro and his camp have been silent about what’s really going on with his wrist, so the speculation abounds. His manager did tell the paper more news would be available on Tuesday.
