Del Potro to make last-minute decision on French Open participation


Paris – Juan Martin del Potro said on Saturday he will make
a last-minute call on whether or not to play at the French Open as he continues
to struggle with a thigh injury. 

The Argentinian last played 10 days ago at the Rome Masters,
where he pulled out of his quarter-final against David Goffin while trailing
the Belgian 6-2, 4-5. 

“I’m probably going to play on Tuesday, I have a day
and a half left (to be ready), I’m going to see day-to-day,” said the
world number six. 

“I’m making this effort because it’s Roland
Garros.” 

The 29-year-old former US Open champion is due to play
Frenchman Nicolas Mahut in the first round and is seeded fifth for the
tournament which gets underway on Sunday.
