Juan Martin Del Potro wants to play the US Open

On the ATP website, his file specifies that he is inactive and recalls that his last match on the circuit dates from February 2022. Facing his public, in Buenos Aires, Juan Martin Del Potro then bowed to Federico Delbonis (6-1, 6-3) after a match where he had been far from his former glory, despite a forehand that could still send some flashes. But, after months away from the circuit and a career marred by injuries, this last comeback attempt had let go of its truth, everything had become too hard for the Argentinian. In the emotion of this end of match, he had not clearly announced that it was the last time that one saw him on a tennis court, but it was difficult to believe anything else.

And now the former world No. 3, 33, surprises his world by announcing that he will resume training and that he hopes to be able to play the US Open this summer, a tournament he won in 2009 , if his body allows it.

” I like tennis. It’ll never be a problem to pick up the racquet and see how I feel, he told Argentinian journalist Danny Miche. Physical problems, the knee, these are things I work on every day. I will give myself a chance, at least until the US Open. It’s a really special tournament for me. I still have time, I’ll get back to training, see how my leg and knee react, see if I can do it or not. »
