Del Potro Back In Business At Delray Beach
After sitting out the past four months with a right knee injury, a healthy Juan Martin del Potro returns next week as the top seed at the Delray Beach Open.
The Argentine, a wild card entry, kicks off his fifth appearance at this event with a first-round clash against Yoshihito Nishioka of Japan. The 2011 champion has reached at least the semi-finals in three of his previous four appearances.
Second seed John Isner, another wild card, starts his week against Canadian Peter Polansky. The American holds a 10-6 record in Delray Beach. Third seed and Australian Open quarterfinalist Frances Tiafoe faces a qualifier in the opening round, while fourth seed Steve Johnson begins his campaign with an all-American clash against Bradley Klahn.
