Coming to tennis, del Potro has been out of action since the French Open 2019. He went as far as the fourth round. Since then, he has been on the sidelines due to a knee injury. Moreover, he has missed the last 10 Grand Slam events. 

Prior to 2019, Juan had a remarkable 2018 season. During that year, he reached the semifinal at the French Open. After that, he made it to the second week of the Wimbledon Championships, reaching the quarterfinal.
