The return of Juan Martín del Potro is great news for South American tennis

by archysport

After being off the court for two and a half years, Juan Martín del Potro is preparing to make his return to professional tennis.

The Argentine will miss the Australian Open in 2022, but in February he would be active to play the ATP tournament in Buenos Aires on brick dust, so it is time to analyze the impact that his return represents for Latin American tennis.

If we review the ATP ranking at the close of the 2021 season, South American tennis barely has 3 players in the top 50: Diego Schwartzman (13), Christian Garín (17) and Federico Delbonis (44). And the most alarming thing is that very few names of young figures in the region have a real chance of breaking into the top 25 in the coming years.

Despite the fact that del Potro is 33 years old, if he can stay healthy, he should have enough level to achieve good results in major tournaments. However, I honestly don’t see him winning another grand slam or a Masters 1000 tournament.
