Del Potro hints at a possible return in 2023

By Richard Pagliaro | Thursday 22 December 2022

Juan Martin del Potro dropped a big comeback hint on social media.

The 2009 US Open champion, who gave a tearful goodbye in Buenos Aires last February, suggested he could return to tennis in 2023.

During Argentina’s World Cup triumph last week, del Potro was asked about his status on Twitter.

Ahead of Argentina’s semi-final win over Croatia, del Potro was asked if Argentina would win the World Cup, would he come back at the 2023 US Open?

“Dale, I’m doing my best,” del Potro replied.

In response to these exchanges, the ATP Twitter account sent this emoji, to which del Potro said: “I’ll update you in a few days!”

While a few affirmative phrases and some emojis obviously don’t imply a comeback commitment, the fact that 34-year-old del Potro is even considering a possible return – not to mention his exclamation point – suggests there might be one after all good news is coming.

The former world No. 3 moved the tennis world to tears when he symbolically placed his signature headband in the net following his opening-round loss to compatriot Federico Delbonis in Buenos Aires last February.

Del Potro said at the time he would like to play again but chronic knee problems left him with pain and an inability to train. The man, nicknamed Tower of Tandil, who underwent four wrist surgeries (all before 2015) and another four knee surgeries (since 2019), said he’s had trouble sleeping because of the shooting pain.

“I’ve been sleeping in pain for two and a half years,” del Potro said last February. “I used to drive three and a half hours to Tandil and now I have to stop to stretch my leg “I don’t like it but it’s what I have to do. My fight is about health and about gaining quality of life. “

Has his knee improved enough for del Potro to consider trying again?

We’ll have to await his forthcoming announcement.

Earlier this month, del Potro appeared on the pitch with Sir Richard Branson at the Necker Cup and shared pictures on social media.
