While Rafael Nadal hopes to have his right wrist ready for the US Open, another former champion nursing a wrist injury won’t be in New York. Juan Martin del Potro official withdrew from the tournament he won in 2009.

The Argentine underwent surgery in March on his left wrist. He recently returned to hitting but it’s not yet strong enough for competition.

No word on when del Potro is targeting a return. Though for American fans on the slim chance del Potro is ready in a month he might be playing in Sunrise, Florida, site of Argentina’s post-US Open September Davis Cup tie against Israel. Due to the unrest in Israel the tie was relocated to Florida, the ITF announced today.

4 Comments for Juan Martin Del Potro Has Withdrawn From The US Open

jane Says:

aww, that’s too bad.


Hippy Chic Says:

Its sad,but not really surprising,best of luck Delpo for a speedy return….


contador Says:

Very disappointing but maybe wise to not make his first tournament back from injury a GS.


Michael Says:

The silver lining for Del Potro is that he is still young and so has some good years ahead of him. But the nagging question is “Will he be the same player that he once was after his come back from such a long period of recuperation” ? It is certainly going to be difficult for Del Potro to get his confidence back while hitting those bludgenoning forehands when he senses that his wrists are brittle to handle that gruesome power. Therein lies the problem for him. I do not want to sound too much pessimistic but revealing some harsh reality that Del Potro needs to face once he arrives on the Tennis scene once again and grace us with his presence.
