Del Potro recovers from wrist injury, accepts Tokyo wild card
Juan Martin del Potro has recovered from a left wrist sprain that hampered him at the U.S. Open, the Argentine's camp reports.
Del Potro traveled to Japan on Wednesday as he has taken a wild card into Tokyo. The world No. 7 is also scheduled to play Shanghai, Basel, the Paris Masters, and, should he qualify, the ATP World Tour Finals in London.
While in recovery, Del Potro worked with the Argentine doctor Dr. Robert Peidro and American specialist Dr. Richard Berger. He is now said to be able to hit his two-handed backhand with full force; he was hitting a greater amount of one-handed slice backhands than usual at the U.S. Open.
