Del Potro returns: He analyzed his return in Madrid and confirmed that he will play Rome
After his return to competition and the tight defeat at the hands of Laslo Djere, Juan Martin del Potro was satisfied and ratified his presence at the next Masters 1000 in Rome.
“Beyond the result the balance is good, I played more than two hours against a demanding opponent who made me move, run and the body responded well”, framed the Argentine.
Del Potro fell 6-3, 2-6 and 7-5 before Djere, in a cross where he got to have a match ball from the return in 5-4. But from there he only won two of the last 13 points.
“I still have the bitter taste of match point but I think that to be my return to the circuit and the first match against a rival that is very good I think it was good”, said the Tandil.
“Obviously I lack pace, air, competition, but that’s only going to be achieved by playing tournaments and more games,” he added.
“The positive thing is that I ended up in an acceptable condition, within normal parameters, which is why we are going to Rome to continue with the recovery”, Del Potro completed.
In Madrid, the Argentine lived just his second week of ATP competition since October 2018, when he injured his knee in Shanghai.
