World number eight Juan Martin del Potro has officially withdrawn from the ATP Masters 1000 Sony Open 2014 Miami Masters due to ongoing problems with his wrist. The Argentine also pulled out of last week’s Indian Wells Masters due to the same problem. He decided not to compete in Miami as he feels he’s not yet fit to compete.
“During these days I was training at the Crandon Park and followed the treatment to try to play in Miami, but I still feel pain in my left wrist and I don’t feel competitive to go on court,” Del Potro said on his Facebook account.
“It’s a pity because this is a special tournament for me since there are many Latin fans and Argentines in particular,” he added.
Del Potro had a promising start of the season which saw him winning the Sydney International title. He would go on to experience wrist problems since the Australian Open until now and he has posted subpar results.
“In the next few days I will visit my doctor again to determine the following steps,” he said.
