As you remember, on the eve of the match against Federico Delbonis, Juan Martín del Potro offered a press conference in which he confessed that he is close to retirement.

“I have been feeling it for a long time, imagining it. It is one of the most difficult messages that I have to transmit. Everyone expects him to return to tennis, possibly it will not be like that and perhaps it will be a farewell more than a return “expressed the ‘Tower of Tandil’.

Immediately, the 33-year-old Olympic medalist explained the reason for making this decision. “I have been making too much effort to be able to move on. The knee has me living a nightmare. For many years I have been trying alternatives, treatments, doctors, different ways to solve it and to this day I have not succeeded “.
