Under supervision of Dr. Richard Berger, popular Juan Martin del Potro is back hitting 2-handed backhands again. Almost four months after surgery on his left wrist, the Argentine was hitting balls yesterday in Rochester, Minn, where he underwent the procedure in late March.
He wrote on Facebook, “I have great news to share! Four months after the surgery I hit my first few backhands and my doctor Richard Berger was there. I’m looking forward to playing pain-free again as soon as possible. Thanks for your support!”
While no timetable for del Potro’s return has been announced, in May news surfaced he was targeting the US Open and as of now he remains entered into the Slam he won in 2009. He’s also still entered in Toronto and Cincinnati.
Del Potro hasn’t played since he retired in tears to Somdev Devvaram in February at Dubai.
