Del Potro undergoing wrist surgery, could be out 3-6 more months

Juan Martin del Potro, who hasn't played since losing to Marin Cilic at the Australian Open, has confirmed he will be undergoing surgery to his right wrist today according to a report by ESPN Deportes.

The 21-year old has traveled to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota to be treated by a specialist.

“I decided to write because I want them to know by my own words of what is happening to me. Throughout this year I wanted to avoid surgery with different treatments, but obviously the injury was more serious," said Del Potro.
He also denied rumors the long break was due to panic attacks or "stage fright." The recovery may take 3-6 months.

Here's to a 3-month recover Delpo though stay out if you need more time to rehabilitate the wrist. That's your career right there.

  1. I'm sad to hear that, the tennis season needs Del Potro badly. But he should take precautions and take all the recovery time that he needs, this is a serious matter. I hope this doesn't affect his career. I'm no fan of him, but tennis needs him like the rest of the tops to be in perfect shape.

  2. totally agree with anon.

    It's so heartbreaking & I'm gonna miss him (and that hawt bod *fans self*) so much, but he needs to take care of himself in the long run.

    Tennis this season won't be the same without him though :(
