(Indian Wells, CA)– Juan Martin Del Potro says his game is much different than it was before his wrist injury and that he’s now a more complete player.
Could injury be a good thing?
Baseball pitchers often come back from Tommy John surgery with more velocity, but that’s not what the resurgent World #8 means.
Del Potro says multiple surgeries on his left wrist have forced him to become more versatile, using slice, drop shots, and approaching the net more often.
“I like the way I’m playing now. It’s more funny to watch, also.” Del Potro said.
The Argentine played a solid, if not dominant match against David Ferrer, winning 6-4, 7-6 and will next face fellow countryman Leo Mayer in the Round of 16.
Del Potro says he’s still getting treatments on his wrist and is far from satisfied with what he’s doing on the backhand wing.
