It is possible we might not see Juan Martin Del Potro again this season.
Surgery is needed for the Argentine on his right knee having fractured his knee cap once again.
The Argentine had only played in five tournaments this year having recovered from the same injury but a slip on the grass at Queens has once again halted his season.
A statement from his team read;
“The medical studies done last night in a clinic in London show that Juan Martin Del Potro has suffered again a fracture in the right patella.
After consultation with his doctor, Angel Cotorro, it has been determined that it will require surgery. This will take place in the next couple of days with a date and location to be determined. We will keep you informed.”
We officially know that he will be out of Wimbledon and the next big question will be, US Open? End of August I imagine will come too soon for him in all honesty once surgery is done and rehab progress will be underway maybe some tournaments at the end of the year?
We will have to wait and see but let’s hope all goes well with surgery!
