‘The knee still bothers me, but I have started to hit again,’ says Juan Martin del Potro in latest update
Juan Martin del Potro has provided a fitness update following his long injury battle, saying he has “started to hit again”.
The 2009 US Open champion has endured an 18-month injury nightmare as he underwent t an operation in October 2018 after fracturing his right knee cap at the Shanghai Masters.
He finally returned to competitive action in February last year and played a handful of tournaments before he was dealt another bad blow at the Fever-Tree Championships in June as he again suffered a fracture in his right patella and had to undergo a second operation.
The Argentine’s recovery has been slow this time and he has only just returned to the court, but is happy that he can take “the necessary steps to continue doing what I love”.
