Associated Press

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina U.S. Open champion Juan Martin Del Potro is set for surgery on his right wrist and says he could be out for "a long period."

The Argentine has not played since a Jan. 24 loss at the Australian Open.

In a letter from Del Potro read on Argentine radio, he says he expects to have surgery Tuesday at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.
