Juan Martin del Potro delays his comeback from a wrist injury for at least another month.

Juan Martin del Potro has revealed that he will not be making his comeback in the next few weeks as the ATP Tour travels to Asia.

The Argentine has been out of action since March after undergoing surgery on a wrist problem, but has been forced to delay plans to make his return to competitive tennis this month.

"I would like to take this opportunity to tell you, my fans, that although the recovery of the wrist is progressing very well, I need a little more time to reach the competitive level necessary to compete week after week," Del Potro confirmed on his Facebook page.

"I worked hard to be ready to make my comeback in Asia, where I had great results last year, but unfortunately it was not possible."

Del Potro is now expected to make his return in November.
