Del Potro Withdraws From Indian Wells
Indian Wells, U.S.A.
"It's still hurting a lot," said del Potro. "I'm not feeling 100 per cent. I'm not in good condition to compete."
The 25-year-old Del Potro finished runner-up to Rafael Nadal in last year’s Indian Wells final.
"I feel the same pain every day and it bothers me a lot," he said. "I'm trying to be very careful."
World No. 7 Del Potro retired due to the same injury, after losing the first set 7-6(3) against Somdev Devvarman, in the first round of last week’s Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships.
