WATCH: Juan Martin del Potro last played an ATP tournament in 2019, when he fractured his knee cap at Queen's Club.

Can Juan Martin del Potro pull off one more comeback? Tennis fans may be about to find out.

The Argentine took to social media on Thursday to reveal his goals of returning to action in time for his home tournament in Buenos Aires, followed by an appearance at another “Golden Swing” clay-court tournament in Rio de Janeiro.

“I’ve been training really hard," he wrote. "Some days are better than others but always with the hope of coming back to compete early next year.

“As you can imagine, I’m giving my all everyday so we can meet again very soon. I’ll keep you all updated with my progress. Take care.”


Del Potro won his first Grand Slam title at the 2009 US Open and, after multiple wrist injuries, returned to the final in Flushing Meadows nine years later. A two-time Olympic medalist, winning bronze in London and silver in Rio, del Potro last played an ATP tournament at the 2019 Queen’s Club Championships, where he fractured his knee cap against Denis Shapovalov.

The 33-year-old has since undergone four surgeries in the hopes of repairing his knee enough to play elite tennis, and though he ruled out a return at the Australian Open, his nearly three-year odyssey may finally be at an end.
