The U.S. Open tennis champion Juan Martin Del Potro will be unable to defend his title this month, having been sidelined since January with a wrist injury.

The 21 year old Argentine says winning in New York last year was his biggest accomplishment in tennis and best memory so far and he's extremely disappointed he won't be at Flushing Meadows this year.

The tournament starts on August the 30th.
