Delpo Juan Martin del Potro Still Suffering from Wrist Injury

 

World No. 7 Juan Martin del Potro officially withdrew from the BNP Paribas Open on Sunday afternoon due to his injured left wrist. Del Potro, the runner-up at last year’s event, was later replaced with James Ward, who would go on to lose to Feliciano Lopez in straight sets.

“It’s still hurting a lot,” said del Potro. “I’m not feeling 100 per cent. I’m not in good condition to compete. I feel the same pain every day and it bothers me a lot. I’m trying to be very careful.”

The Argentine had retired due to the same injury, after losing the first set 7-6(3) against Somdev Devvarman in the first round of last week’s Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships. He tested his wrist on Saturday in a doubles match with Marin Cilic but the pair lost to seventh seeds Daniel Nestor and Nenad Zimonjic in the final tiebreak 10-8.
