Del Potro no estará en MadridDel Potro will not be playing in Madrid

The Argentinian has a viral infection which means that he cannot play in the Estoril Tournament and he will not recover in time for the Mutua Madrid Open.

Juan Martin will not play in the Mutua Madrid Open due to a virus. The Argentinian from Tandil cannot take part in this week’s Estoril tournament and will not recover in time for this year’s Caja Mágica main draw.

After getting to the semi-finals against Tomas Berdych last year, Del Potro will have to announce his withdrawal and will not be able to play in the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 where he beat Florian Mayer, Mikhail Youzhny, Marin Cilic and Alexandr Dolgopolov in style last year.

The current world number 7 is not able to play in the Estoril tournament this week in Portugal, and due to a virus, he will not be fit to play in the Mutua Madrid Open. We wish him a fast recovery.

David Goffin will replace him in the main draw. This means that the Belgian player skips the qualifying stages and will play in the main competition.
