Juan Martin del Potro copies Novak Djokovic and Federer in desperate bid to save career

2 mins read

While he has avoided coming across as too optimistic, del Potro did not fully close the door on continuing his career after losing in Buenos Aires.

Shortly after his defeat, he said: “There are cases of players in tennis who close the shutter and then miraculously come back for one thing or another. I will always leave that window open.

“If tonight was the last, I was happy. But who wouldn’t want to feel that again? Now tennis is on the sidelines until I try to improve my leg. If I can do it, I’ll see.”

The Argentine will no doubt take inspiration from Andy Murray, who is working his way back up the rankings having undergone two hip surgeries and competing with a metal implant.

Spanish player Pablo Andujar’s story will be another source of optimism – he had multiple procedures on his elbow, including at the Rennbahnklinik, and has continued to play.
