Juan Martin Del Potro announced today that he will return to tennis in a few weeks at the Delray Beach event starting on February 15th.
The Argentine, who hasn’t played in almost a year, said he is grateful for all the support he’s received from his friends and fans, and he hopes to make a full return from multiple surgeries last year on his left wrist.
While he did not set a schedule of tournaments he will play, it sounds like if things go well more events will be added.
“We’ve been expecting this call,” said Delray Beach Open tournament director Mark Baron. “Juan Martin has always had Delray Beach in his comeback plans, and we’re happy to know that it’s come to fruition. We are rooting for him to be able to overcome his injury and hope he will have a successful comeback.”
“I’ve been waiting for this moment for a long time,” del Potro said. “As I had promised that I would make a comeback around January or February, now I can confirm it will happen at Delray Beach. I wanted to share the news and also the happiness that I feel knowing that I will play a tennis tournament after such a long time.”
