After surgery to his left wrist in March, Juan Martin del Potro will make his return to tennis at the start of the year at Brisbane, the tournament announced earlier this week.
In a star-studded field, del Potro will be joined by Roger Federer, US Open champion Marin Cilic, Kei Nishikori, Grigor Dimitrov, Milos Raonic and Lleyton Hewitt.
“To have eight Grand Slam champions, five of the world’s top 11 men – as well as Juan Martin del Potro with an injury protected ranking of No.7 – and four of the top 10 women commit to Brisbane is a fantastic result, and certainly highlights the players’ regard for the tournament,” said tournament director Cameron Pearson.
Del Potro, who is currently ranked No. 138 but will use a protected ranking of 7 in 2015, is continuing his training both on and off the court in Argentina.
“Otro muy lindo día de entrenamiento /// another great training day,” he wrote on Facebook.
