Juan Martin del Potro has decided to officially end his 2014 season. There was some hope the Argentine would return to Basel to defend his 2013 title, but he announced earlier today that he will make his comeback fresh at the start of 2015.
“I’m training well, but the recovery from the wrist surgery is slow and I’m still not ready to be in the competitive level that allows me to face the best players in the last two tournaments of the year. I prefer to be patient, cautious, and get ready for next year. I don’t suffer any pain in the wrist, I’m feeling better day by day,” del Potro said.
Del Potro hasn’t played since undergoing left wrist surgery last Match. The 26-year-old is currently ranked No. 29, but will play under a protected ranking in 2015.
