Del Potro to return in Thailand
Argentine tennis star Juan Martin del Potro says he will return to action next week in the Thailand Open, ending eight months of inactivity as he recovered from right wrist surgery.
Del Potro, the 2009 U.S. Open champion, expects to travel to Bangkok this week to begin preparations.
Del Potro had surgery in May but has not played since a Jan. 24 loss in the Australian Open. The Argentine underwent the surgery after other methods of treatment failed to solve the problem.
