ATP > Del Potro disappears completely, waiting for Federer

“I do not close the door to a miracle like that of Murray”confessed Juan Martin Del Potro at the beginning of March, a month after almost saying goodbye to tennis in Buenos Aires, following a defeat against Federico Delbonis.

This Monday, June 20, when he has apparently still not found an effective or rather miraculous treatment for his knee, the Argentinian has completely disappeared from the ATP ranking. A first since entering in 2004. He lost the 23 small points he had left from his round of 16 at Queen’s in 2019.

The name of a giant of this sport no longer appears. Waiting for the imminent disappearance of another legend: Roger Federer. The latter, already dethroned by Henri Laaksonen in Switzerland, will leave the ranking on July 11, at the end of Wimbledon.

If one has not yet retired, and the other plans to return in the next few months, these facts mark the end of an era.
