Juan Martin Del Potro the 2009 US Champion who had made a comeback at Italian Open, 2013 after a Viral that had kept him out of Madrid Masters & Estoril has flown back to Argentina for further treatment of his BronchoSpasm. The decision to return to Argentina was taken by the medical team led by Dr. Roberto Peidro, Télam the official National News Agency of Argentina reported today morning.

In a statement sent to the media, Argentine tennis player claimed he needed "physical recovery plan & intensive treatment accordingly to achieve the goal of full recovery in the shortest time possible."

 

 

 

Del Potro "Suffered a bronchitis viral that prevented him training for two weeks after his arrival in Monte Carlo," explained the statement.

 

 

"Rest will help in momentary deterioration of physical and respiratory capacity which is recovering progressively," the statement added.

 

 

The issued statement neither discarded nor confirmed Del Potro's decision to play at French Open, 2013.

 

 

 The World No. 7 has played only 4 matches in this year's European Clay Season with 2 wins and 2 loses, the last defeat being against Beniot Paire at Rome Masters, clearly the Argentine, even if he decides to play at French Open starting from 26th May, 2013 will be going with literally no match practice.

 

 

PS: Before posting this topic, I tweeted Jorge Viale (Del Potro's communication manager) to ask about Del Potro's plans, in case, he replies, will update it in the following post.

 

 

Also, as Andy Murray is likely to withdraw from French Open, 2013 because of lower back issues,  the French Open seedings in case if both Murray and Del Potro withdraw will be as follows :

 

 

 

i) Novak Djokovic

 

ii) Roger Federer

 

iii) Rafael Nadal

 

iv) David Ferrer

 

v) Tomas Berdych

 

vi) Jo Wilfried Tsonga

 

vii) Richard Gasquet

 

viii) Janko Tipsarevic

 

ix) Stanislas Wawrinka

 

 

 

PS: Had Wawrinka won one more match at Italian Open, he would have been ranked above Tipsarevic and possibly a seeding of #8 at French Open, 2013.

 

 

Here's wishing a quick recovery to Del Potro. May he be fit in time to play at French Open, 2013.

Me neither! Thanks!

 

Del Potro is one of those guys who I feel that currently have the type of game to really challenge Roger.

I am sorry for him, but on the other hand I think perhaps his absence or even his lower level will make the job easier for our Maestro, in case they meet, so I cannot say I am sad.

 

Dream Draw for me would now include Ferrer on the semis, Gasquet or Tipsi on QFs.

Unfortunately, Del Potro has withdrawn from French Open. Now, Tipsarevic will be the 8th seed and Wawrinka will be the 9th seed.

Del Potro´s withdrawal official press release (translated in English):

 

 

 

Juan Martin del Potro was forced to cancel his participation at Roland Garros as not being physically fit to face a demanding tournament as the french Grand Slam

Del Potro suffered viral infection at the beginning of the clay tour, which affected his upper respiratory system and digestive tract, and forced him to two weeks of rest. Then he experienced a recurrence with bronchospasm. These situations negatively altered his preparation for the tour and forced him to miss Estoril and Madrid tournaments. When falling early in Rome, Del Potro decided to return to Argentina for new medical checks.

After serialized clinical studies and athletic evaluations, it was found an improvement in clinical and respiratory status as well as his physical response to sport demands. However, the medical team, led by Dr. Roberto Peidro, in conjunction with the coaching staff, has decided to continue with Del Potro´s preparation and treatment in Argentina until achieve a full recovery. For this reason, Delpo have been advised not to participate at Roland Garros as it not reaching in time at full physical condition.
"I'm sad to miss such an important tournament, obviously is a blow because these are the tournaments that you always dream of winning. Now I´ll get through this time, get full recovery and prepare myself to perform a hundred percent in the next commitments," Del Potro said. "
