There is some very good news for the Juan Martin Del Potro fans. The Argentinean is well and truly on his way to match fitness and he has made it clear that he is looking to take part in the Malaysia Open which is going to start in a couple of months’ time.
It’s been a while since Del Potro had played his last match on the tour. He had featured in the first round in the doubles competition of the BNP Paribas Open despite his wrist being injured, but, he felt a lot of inconvenience during that game and after that, he decided to opt for surgery.
Del Potro went through the surgery in the last week of March and his recovery has been pretty smooth since then. He has started to have a few hits and a few days back, he even uploaded a video file on a social networking site in which he could be seen practicing.
Del Potro also posted a message for his fans on the same social networking site. He wrote, “Hello to everyone. There is some news that I want to share with you all. I have started practicing a little bit. I am still trying to be careful though. As you guys can see in the video, my wrist is bandaged. I don’t want to jump steps in this recovery period.”
Del Potro had actually started the ongoing season with a bang by securing victory in the final of the Apia International Sydney Tennis Tournament. He entered the round of 8 at Rotterdam as well, but, thereafter, he established the wrist injury because of which he is still out.
As far as Del Potro’s position in the ATP World rankings is concerned, it’s 7th at the moment.
