Argentine Juan Martin Del Potro has officially pulled out of the upcoming Wimbledon Championships as he continues to recuperate from a wrist surgery that he underwent earlier this week.

The 26-year-old has featured in just four matches on the tour this year – splitting them all. He last played at Miami in March, where he suffered an appalling first-round exit (lost to Vasek Pospisil).

“Juan Martin Del Potro has withdrawn from the Championships 2015 due to recent wrist surgery,” a statement (via Reuters) from the All England Club confirmed the news.

As a replacement for the Argentine in the draw, the officials have named Australia’s Marinko Matosevic to compete in the main round. The 138th-ranked Aussie has had a forgettable season so far owing to a 4-16 win-loss record this season.

The main draw of the Wimbledon Championships is scheduled to kick-start from June 29.
