A case of wait and see for Juan Martin del Potro after latest injury

Juan Martin del Potro disappointed

Juan Martin del Potro faces an anxious wait after he injured his knee during the Shanghai Masters.

The world No 4 took a tumble in the 10th game of the opening set of his third-round clash against Borna Coric, but continued to play after receiving medical attention.

He went on to lose the set 5-7 and then retired.

The former US Open winner underwent scans and is now waiting to discover the extent of the knee injury.

“During the match I had a bad fall. I made a weird movement with the knee and hit the floor very hard. I felt intense pain,” the Argentine said.

“After, I lost the stability and strength on my leg, so not to continue was the best decision. I didn’t want any more risks after that.

“The doctor observed me and told that we need to wait for the examinations results in a few hours. Then we will know how bad it was and how to proceed for the next tournaments.”
