Wellington, Mar 03 (ANI): Argentina tennis ace Juan Martin Del Potro is confident of a full comeback very soon, following his brief Sydney return in January. Del Potro said that he is not going drop his arms or surrender because of an injury, adding that if his hand responds well, he would come back as soon as possible but insisted that that depends exclusively on his hand, and it would decide his return, Stuff.co.nz reported. Del Potro claimed that it's very hard to live with injuries, adding that he would have trouble getting up some days. Del Potro said that his ultimately premature comeback in Sydney in January, when he still felt pain with his two-handed backhand, had helped his confidence immensely.

By Rex Gowar BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - Former world number four Juan Martin Del Potro, having drawn confidence from his brief Sydney return in January, said on Monday he was confident of a full comeback “very soon”. If my hand responds well, I’ll come back as soon as possible but that depends exclusively on my hand, it will decide my return,” Del Potro told a packed news conference. “I’m in full recovery, I’m going faster than the time frame the doctor set for me as a goal and that has me enthused and that’s why I believe my return will be very soon,” he said at a sponsorship presentation in Buenos Aires. The 26-year-old, who missed most of the 2010 season after surgery on his right wrist, also confirmed an improved relationship with the Argentine Tennis Association (AAT) and a return to his country’s Davis Cup team.
