Juan Martin del Potro back home and in self-quarantine, but recovery continues
Juan Martin del Potro’s recovery from his latest knee surgery continues, but the Argentine sent a heart-warming message to his followers after he returned home following an extended stay in Miami.
The 2009 US Open champion underwent knee surgery at the end of January this year after he fractured his right patella for a second time in less than a year during the Fever-Tree Championships in June 2019.
Although no return date has been set, the 31-year-old is on the mend and he spent the last few months in the United States to continue his recovery.
But with borders closing due to the coronavirus pandemic, Del Potro returned to his native Argentina and posted a message on Instagram.
