Juan Martin del Potro makes his long-awaiting return to tennis tonight in Delray Beach where the Argentine will face American Denis Kudla.

The former US Open champion hasn’t played a match since Miami last year, and this will be his first appearance following a third surgery on his left wrist last summer.

Also in action Tuesday in Delray is new American sensation Taylor Fritz who meets countryman Tim Smyczek.

Yesterday, defending champion Ivo Karlovic lost while Grigor Dimitrov was a winner.

3 Comments for Juan Martin Del Potro Returns In Delray Beach Tonight!

Dave Says:

I am very happy for Juan Martin Del potro. When he is playing, he is my second favorite player behind Djokovic. I hope he can keep that left wrist healthy. I noticed he hit a lot of one handed slice backhands. He didn’t hit to many 2 handed backhands. He is being very careful as he eases himself back into tennis. What a great match as well. His serving was very very good. Surprisingly good.


Margot Says:

Well done JMPD. Easy does it.
Dave, I’ve seen him live twice at the 02. Once before troubles when absolutely MASSIVe grunting accompanied his MASSIVE forehands. He won.
Second occasion after troubles, no grunting, no forehand. He lost.
Level of grunting will indicate confidence in wrist, I think.


Daniel Says:

His FH was excellent with the usual “pop” on it. Hope he wins more and face Chardy who is another power hitter to gauge his game better.
