Sad news from Juan Martin del Potro who had to retire last week in Shanghai with a knee injury to Borna Coric. Tests later confirmed the Argentine as a patella bone fracture in his right knee.
“It’s a very difficult moment,” said Del Potro in a statement. “I feel very sad. It’s a hard blow that leaves me without strength. It’s very difficult for me to think about recovery again, I did not expect this to happen.”
No timetable has been announced, but the Australian season is still on the table. But heartbreaking news once against hits Del Potro.
The 4th-ranked Del Potro won two titles in six finals and reached a career-high No. 3 this summer.
