Juan Martin del Potro is an Argentinian tennis player who took the tennis world by storm with memorable victories over the likes of Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, and Novak Djokovic over the years. He was the player to have stopped Federer’s consecutive title run at the 2009 US Open.
Whenever del Potro is in his peak form, he used to be a nightmare for other players on the ATP rooster. But, the Argentinian couldn’t carry on with the momentum he got initially in his career owing to several injuries. Over the past decade, del Potro went through multiple wrist and knee surgeries.
As a result, the 2009 US Open champion failed to consistently perform on the ATP tour. del Potro’s last appearance on the ATP tour came at the Queen’s Club Championships in 2019. After a gap of almost three years, the gentle giant will return to action in-front of his home crowd at Argentina Open.
