Via Facebook, Juan Martin del Potro announced that his left wrist has not healed sufficiently to allow him to play in the upcoming Asian swing.
“I would like to take this opportunity to tell you, my fans, that although the recovery of the wrist is progressing very well, I need a little more time to reach the competitive level necessary to compete week after week,” del Potro said. “I worked hard to be ready to make my comeback in Asia, where I had great results last year, but unfortunately it was not possible. I’m going to miss my fans in Malaysia, Tokyo and Shanghai who always gave me tremendous support. I will keep working hard on my recovery to play the European season at the end of the year. As always, thanks for your messages !!!”
The Argentine is currently ranked No. 14 this week. He hasn’t played since Dubai in February. Del Potro turns 26 on September 23.
