It’s not looking promising that Juan Martin Del Potro will play next week at the French Open. After losing last week in Rome, the Argentine returned back home to Tandil Friday to undergo further tests on a respiratory viral illness that kept him out of Madrid.
Now, Argentine media is reporting that it’s unlikely he’ll return to Europe to play the French Open.
Maybe the Pope can help?
Still only 24 years of age, Del Potro has missed a lot of playing time for health reasons. But Del Po had played in the last 10 Grand Slams and appeared to be in good shape until this latest issue surfaced last month.
Del Potro would currently be the No. 7 seed at the French Open where last year he battled a knee injury in a 5-set loss to Roger Federer in the quarterfinals.
