Unfortunate news for Juan Martin del Potro and his fans. The Argentine announced that he underwent a second surgery on his left wrist earlier today.
Del Potro withdrew from the Australian Open because of continued pain in that left wrist. After seeing the doctor, a second, minor surgery was performed.
“A few hours ago I was in Australia, today at the Mayo Clinic,” del Potro wrote on Facebook. “As recommended by my doctor, I underwent a minor surgery to fix the problem that caused me pain in the wrist. I feel more determined than ever to return to the courts sooner than later, to play tennis without feeling pain and to enjoy the love that you give me. I will begin rehabilitation in two weeks. Thanks!!”
There is no timetable for return.

Now this is lousy news. Was looking forward to seeing DelPo back in the mix. Why didn’t the first surgery get things right?
