Del Potro wont feature in Brisbane Internation Tennis

Juan Martin Del Potro is not going to feature in the Brisbane International Tennis tournament that is starting in the first week of the New Year.

He has made a slight change to his scheduling. Now, he would make his comeback to competitive tennis by participating in another hard court tournament in Australia i.e. Apia International Sydney Tennis tournament.

Del Potro has been out of the game for just less than a year, 11 months to be precise.

The last time that he had featured on the tour was in one of the tournaments in United Arab Emirates the previous year.

He had actually withdrawn himself during his first game in that tournament because of his wrist problem.

The 26-year old went under the knife thereafter and it took him a fairly long time to be able to recover from that operation and obviously, his ranking went down quite a bit during his absence from the game.

At this point of time, the Argentinean stands at no. 140. But, that’s not a problem. He would surely make an upward surge from there once he is up and running.

Confirming his participation in Sydney, Del Potro said, “I had fond memories of the tournament that I had played in Sydney in January last year. I had got a lot of support and I am expecting the same again. There could not have been a better place for me to get the season started. I hope I get into my rhythm quickly and go all the way to defend the crown.”

Del Potro had won the Apia International last season. That was the only singles competition that he won in 2014.

He would want his campaign to go the same smooth route this time around too there in Sydney.
