Del Potro to undergo another knee surgery after last one unsuccessful

“We hope that this is the definitive solution to eliminate the pain that not only has prevented Delpo from playing tennis, but also making it difficult for him to perform daily activities,” his team stated. 

Sad news has appeared once again from Juan Martin del Potro and his camp. The Argentine’s most recent knee surgery in June of 2019 proved unsuccessful, and his team announced that he will undergo yet another right knee surgery on Monday, in Miami. 

Del Potro initially fractured his kneecap at the 2018 Shanghai Rolex Masters. After a successful recovery, he re-aggravated the same injury when he slipped on the grass at the 2019 Fever Tree Championships in London. 

Del Potro hopes to return to the court, but as of now no timetable has been given for his return.
