Down Under: Injuries Watch
Del Potro withdrew from Kooyong, citing a wrist injury but without the elaborating on the extent of the damage. He won’t be playing another match before the Australian Open.
My gut feeling is that it’s more precautionary. I certainly didn’t pick up any discomfort when I saw him play on Wednesday, although granted – Ljubicic wasn’t much of a test for del Potro, injured or uninjured.
After withdrawing from Kooyong, del Potro practiced on Rod Laver Arena. Judge for yourselves – although some of you might be distracted.
Yo monkey ain’t funky.
