Juan Martin del Potro wants to revive his tennis career in the hope of participating in the US Open, which he won in 2009.

The 34-year-old Argentinian played his last match in an injury-ravaged career in February 2022 in Buenos Aires. There, Del Potro said goodbye to tennis so that he could live every day without pain, he said. The Argentinian will now return to that.

Del Potro is going to resume training and see how his body will react. His aim is to be able to participate in the US Open again in August of this year, his favorite tournament.

“I love tennis, it will never be a problem to pick up a racket and see how I feel. My physical problems and my knee are things I work on every day. I’m going to try, at least until the US Open. This is the most special tournament for me. I still have time, I’m going to see how my leg and knee react and whether I can do it or not,” Del Potro told South American sports journalist Danny Miche.

Rich career

Del Potro won the US Open in 2009 by beating Roger Federer in the final. He also reached the 2018 US Open final, won silver at the 2016 Rio Olympics, the bronze medal at the 2012 London Games, and led Argentina to the 2016 Davis Cup title. Del Potro won 22 ATP singles titles.
