News out of Argentina is that Juan Martin Del Potro’s recent comeback is on hold, and fortunately not because of his wrist.
According to his management, Del Potro will sit out Shanghai and likely the remainder of the season to sort out other minor physical issues.
Being such a fragile giant physically, I was initially worried that maybe Delpo returned to quickly, and it looks like that’s what has happened. But better that than him re-injuring the wrist which his people maintain is perfectly “fine”.
If he was having other issues than this is a smart move. There’s no need to take a chance at the end of the season when you can get a full two months to train and recover for 2011.
Del Potro was 0-2 in his return with straight set losses to Olivier Rochus in Bangkok and Feliciano Lopez in Tokyo a few days ago.
David Nalbandian is also out of Shanghai which begins next week.
