Del Potro Clarifies Comeback Report

Mystery still surrounds the long-awaited ATP World Tour return of reigning US Open champion Juan Martin del Potro.

Debunking reports that he had resumed practising following May wrist surgery, the 6' 6" Argentine has said that his return date remain uncertain.

"I haven't picked up a racquet yet so I can't tell an exact date," del Potro wrote on his Twitter account. "When I know I'll tell you the news here. I'm improving, that's a good thing."

Del Potro underwent right wrist surgery on 4 May at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.

Del Potro won his first Grand Slam title at last year's US Open when he came from behind to upset Roger Federer, denying the Swiss a record sixth consecutive triumph in New York.
