Wednesday February 3rd, 2016

Juan Martin del Potro will return to the ATP Tour on Feb. 15., he announced on YouTube on Wednesday.

Del Potro, who has undergone three surgeries in two years on his left wrist, will reappear on tour at the Delray Beach Open. It will mark his first appearance since the 2015 Miami Open.

“I’ve been waiting for this moment a long time,” Del Potro said. “Please be patient as it’s just my first tournament and coming back to the tour is also a part of the rehab process.”

The 27-year-old has won 18 championships in his career on the ATP Tour, including one Grand Slam singles title at the 2009 U.S. Open.
