Juan Martin Del Potro has been battling with injuries since the very beginning of his career. This week in London he had to suffer from another setback after he broke his right patella (knee) again for the second time after Shanghai 2018. However, the Argentine doesn’t give up, and he decided to have yet another operation immediately in Barcelona.
The statement: great success
The good news is that the operation when pretty well and an official statement was released as follows:
“Juan Martin del Potro has completed his surgery today with great success on the fracture in his right patella in the Creu Blanca Clinic in Barcelona.
The operation was performed by Dr. Jaume Vilaro and Dr. Angel Ruiz Cotorro, who proceeded with removing a bone fragment.”
It is still not clear when Juan Martin is expected to be back to competitions.
Why Del Potro opted for having a surgery
The Tower of Tandil explained why he decided to undergo surgery to comment
“I asked them for the best option, health-wise, not just for tennis. As you can imagine, this is a tough moment. It’s sad to go through all this again. I didn’t expect this at all; hopefully, I will have a good recovery. I hope my knee can heal properly.”
