“I still have a couple of months. My idea is to return in August or September, if I recover quickly,” he said via Google translation.
The timeline would allow him to play the US Open or at the latest the fall Asian swing if everything goes well.
Later Thursday, del Potro’s agency released the following statement:
Juan Martin del Potro returned to the Mayo Clinic almost six weeks after his left wrist operation, where he saw his surgeon, Dr. Richard Berger. He has been wearing a special splint to support his wrist while his ligament repairs heal.
Dr. Berger was very pleased with everything about the examination. The ligament repairs have healed exactly as planned, and he will begin an intense period of rehabilitation for regaining motion and strength. This rehabilitation will continue until Juan Martin is ready to re-enter competitive tennis.
