Juan Martin del Potro to miss remainder of season

Juan Martin del Potro confirms that he will miss the rest of the 2014 season while he recovers from injury.

Juan Martin del Potro has announced that he is to miss the remainder of the season while he recovers from injury.

The 26-year-old Argentine has been out of action since March due to a recurrence of the wrist problem that has dogged him in recent years.

The former US Open champion said on his official Facebook page: "Despite the positive recovery of my wrist and the progress in my overall physical condition, I have decided not to take part in the end-of-year European tournaments.

"I'm currently not at the 100% capacity required to confront this challenges. I intend to take a more patient approach to this preparation phase and focus on a sound 2015 return.

"Your constant support, good wishes and caring have been and will continue to be of the upmost importance along this journey. I am deeply thankful and I believe that during next year I'll be able to repay you, doing what I do best."

Del Potro has dropped down to 29th place in the world rankings due to his lack of action in recent months.
