Juan Martin del Potro may have missed out on almost all of the tournaments this year due to a chronic wrist injury, but his hunger to compete out there has certainly not gone astray as he’s already set his eyes upon competing at the prestigious Australian Open 2016 in January.

The 27-year-old Argentine, who is best known for winning the 2009 US Open Championship and his bronze-medal effort at the 2012 London Olympics, said that despite being dormant on the tour for almost a couple of seasons, he still is upbeat of making it through at the season’s first major.

“Yes, to Australia I would be physically ready, but it depends on hand and if the hand tells me I can go back to that time I will,” del Potro was quoted as saying by puntodebreak.com. “It is difficult to give any exact date, because I go day by day,” he added.

After a glorious season in 2013, where he notched up a decent 54-17 record, del Potro was sidelined with an ordeal wrist. Subsequently, he could manage to feature in just 10 matches (7-3) in 2014, and a meager four matches in 2015 (2-2), with the first-round loss (to Vasek Pospisil) in Miami being his last outing.
