Earlier this year, Juan Martin del Potro excited tennis fans in Delray Beach, Indian Wells and Miami by including those stops in his return to the ATP World Tour. In the coming weeks, tennis fans in Munich and Madrid will get to see him next.

The Argentine announced on his Facebook page on Tuesday that he'll continue his return to tour-level competition on clay at the BMW Open by FWU AG in Munich later this month and at the Mutua Madrid Open in May. It's been about three years since del Potro last played on clay (Rome 2013). He most recently played in Munich in 2008 (QF l. to El Aynaoui) and in Madrid in 2012 (SF l. to Berdych).

The 27 year old came back to tour-level competition in February after sitting out 11 months because of surgery on his left wrist on 18 June. He played in just two tournaments in all of 2015.

Below is del Potro's Facebook post to his fans:

Hello everyone!!

I am really happy to tell you that Munich and Madrid will be my first two clay tournaments after a long time… I've been practising on clay for a week now after years of not playing on this surface and I will keep getting better in the next few days.

Rehab on my wrist is going as planned. Although I must be patient I am thrilled to be able to confirm two tournaments in a row, the first time I do this since I came back to tennis.

As always, thanks for your messages!
