BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) - Former U.S. Open champion Juan Martin Del Potro underwent surgery on his left wrist Tuesday, just days after he pulled out of the Australian Open.

Del Potro had the surgery at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, and said on his Facebook page that he did so at the recommendation of his physician.

The surgery was done by Dr. Richard Berger, who operated on Del Potro’s same wrist 10 months ago. He also performed surgery on the Argentine’s right wrist in 2010, the year after he won the U.S. Open.

Del Potro’s management said in a statement that the Argentine would resume training in two weeks. It did not say when he might play again.
