Juan Martin del Potro Gets Wild Card into U.S. Open 2016
In 2009, Juan Martin Del Potro won the U.S Open games. The champion is eying on returning to Flushing Meadows on 2016. After receiving a wild invitation card, this will be his first time there in three years. Juan received his invitation card from the U.S Tennis Association. When wagering on Tennis, online Tennis lines come in handy.
With three operations performed on his left wrist, Juan missed two years of major tournaments. He then returned in June to Grand Slam action at Wimbledon. He could not come back directly into the U.S open as his ranking is too low. He ranks 141st in this year’s Grand Slam Tournament set to begin on Aug 29th in New York. This Grand Slam tournament will be the last one for this year.
At Rio de Janeiro games on Sunday, Juan lost to Andy Murray in the final to take home silver. He will add the silver to the bronze that he won in 2012 at London Olympics in Argentina. At Rio in Brazil, Juan put up quite a performance to stun a 12 tie major champion. His forehand was in terrific form and he won against Novak in the first round. He also won against Rafael Nadal in the semifinal; Rafael is a 14 time major champion.
His final opponent, Andy Murray said that Juan can be at the top of the game if he stays fit. Seven years ago, Juan was considered the next big thing in tennis after winning against his opponent Roger Federer. At the time, Federer was a five time US Open champion. He was only 20 years old at the time and he won the game in five sets.
Juan fairy-tale to stardom was not however going to be smooth. He developed problems with his left wrist, to make the matters worse, his left hand which he uses for a two-handed backhand, developed issues afterward.
On Sunday, Murray added that Juan had done an amazing job to get back to play and compete again. To compete at that level after all the issues and setbacks is an inspiration. Murray added that he could only imagine how frustrating it must have been for Juan to deal with all the setbacks. He is a strong person for coming back after dealing with the same problems over and over again.
Gold Medalist Bethannie was among the two Americans in Rio who earned mixed doubles, together with silver Medallist Rajeev Ram. Both were among the players who were announced by USTA on Tuesday to be on the wild card recipients list.
Other men on the list of wild card recipients include; Frances Tiafoe, Michael Mmoh, Mackenzie McDonald, Ernesto Escobedo and Bjorn Fratangelo.
On the women’s department, women who were given entry into the field include: France's Virginie Razzano, Danielle Collins, Vania King, Kayla Day, Lauren Davis and Sofia Kenin.
More wild cards were handed out by UTSA for the qualifiers. Surprisingly, Laura Robson of Britain and Melanie Oudin of Marietta were also included in the list.
