Juan Martin del Potro took some time off from his preparations for a comeback tour to visit the home province of his girlfriend, model Sofia Jimenez Jujuy. The Argentinian tennis star did not hesitate to show off his pictures with Jujuy, who he was with for pretty much the whole trip.

In one of the pictures he posted on his official social media accounts, Del Potro described the landscapes and tourist areas in the province as “wonderful.” Aside from calling the place beautiful, he also complimented its people for warmly welcoming him. Coincidentally also named Jujuy, the province is known mainly for its dramatic scenery caused by the many beautiful rock formations.

Del Potro and his injury

For a lot of his fans, it was nice to see Del Potro out and about after a few months of relative inactivity. In June, he suffered a knee fracture, which forced him to pull out of multiple tournaments so he can have surgery. Thankfully, he is already healed from the health issue as he will be competing in the Stockholm Open.

It can be recalled that the Argentine was set to stage his comeback in the Shanghai Masters. The tournament is special for the Argentinian star as he almost won it in 2013, before Novak Djokovic stopped him in the finals. But he had to pull out to focus on the Stockholm competition instead. Italian player Lorenzo Sonego ended up filling out his slot.

Who is Sofia Jimenez Jujuy?

The Argentinian tennis star’s trip to Jujuy’s home province confirms the seriousness of their relationship. The two just confirmed that they were in a relationship earlier this year. Within months of confirming, they were no longer shy about posting pictures and videos of each other on their social media accounts.

Sofia started her ascent to the public scene in 2010 when she participated in the Miss Universe Argentina 2010 pageant. She ended up as the First Princess of the competition.

Apart from her modeling and pageant career, she attended classes to get her Social Communication degree from the University of Buenos Aires and the University of Business and Social Sciences. This enabled her to become an actress and TV host, appearing on shows like the Argentinian Big Brother and Generation E.
