Lanky Argentine Juan Martin del Potro qualified for the 2012 ATP World Tour Finals, to be held at The O2 in London from 5-12 November. The Argentine made an easy entry to the league after Rafael Nadal’s withdrawal from this tournament and became the sixth singles player to qualify, joining Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Andy Murray, David Ferrer and Tomas Berdych.
The Argentine will be making his third career appearance at the season finale. His best performance at this tournament came in 2009 when he finished as a runner-up. Del Potro has won three ATP World Tour titles in 2012, at the Open 13 in Marseille, the Estoril Open, and at last week’s Erste Bank Open in Vienna.
“For me it’s a gift for my effort during the year,” asserted Del Potro. “Being in that tournament means a lot. It’s only eight players fighting for one tournament. It’s the best eight players of the year, so it’s very important to me. I’m so glad to be there once again. I will be fighting against the big names in London and maybe I’ll have a chance to make another final.”
Brad Drewett, ATP Executive Chairman & President, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Juan Martin back to the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals where he made such a big impact back in 2009 by reaching the final. He has one of the biggest games on tour and is an exciting addition to what will be a fantastic player field in London.”
