Juan Martin del Potro has provided an update on his fitness after another injury recovery battle but there is good and bad news.

Del Potro back in 2018 underwent an operation in October 2018 after fracturing his right knee cap at the Shanghai Masters but was dealt another blow last year at Queens as he suffered a fracture in his right patella.

He has revealed that he has started to hit again but the knee still bothers him. Also he said that with no plans to return as of yet, he can go at his own pace and take the ‘necessary steps’.

“Today I came to spend the day with my friend! I wanted to tell you that these days I started to hit again,” he wrote on Instagram.

“The knee still bothers me so we have to see how it evolves. Although I have no schedule, once again I am taking all the necessary steps to continue doing what I love. Thank you for the love you always give me.”

Hoy vine a pasar el día con mi amiga! 😊 Quería contarles que en estos días volví a entrenarme y a practicar de a poco en la cancha. La rodilla aún me molesta así que estamos probando cómo evoluciona. Si bien no hay fechas ciertas, una vez más estoy dando todo para seguir haciendo lo que amo. Gracias por el amor que me dan siempre. #FelizDiaDelAmigo 🙌🤗 . .
