Del Potro to Miss Australian Open
By Francis Joseph
Argentine’s Juan Martin Del Potro is to miss next month’s Australian.
The world No.5 is still recovering from a knee injury suffered in Shanghai in October.
“I hope you have a great 2019. Recovery is going great and I will tell you later where I will be making my comeback,” he wrote on Twitter on Monday.
“Unfortunately it won’t happen in Australia, I’ll miss you @AustralianOpen, but I’m happy with my progress.”
Del Potro, 30, had a largely successful 2018, winning at Indian Wells and reaching the US Open final.
