‘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”.

Hoy vine a pasar el día con mi amiga! 😊 Quería contarles que en estos días volví a entrenarme y a practicar de a poco en la cancha. La rodilla aún me molesta así que estamos probando cómo evoluciona. Si bien no hay fechas ciertas, una vez más estoy dando todo para seguir haciendo lo que amo. Gracias por el amor que me dan siempre. #FelizDiaDelAmigo 🙌🤗 . . Today I came to spend the day with my friend! I wanted to tell you that these days I started to hit again. The knee still bothers me so we have to see how it evolves. Although I have no schedule, once again I am taking all the necessary steps to continue doing what I love. Thank you for the love you always give me. #HappyFriendsDay
