BRIEF-Tennis-Del Potro to miss Sweden Davis Cup tie - reports

BUENOS AIRES, Feb 11 (Reuters) - Juan Martin del Potro’s wrist injury that hampered his Australian Open campaign will keep him sidelined for four weeks and cause him to miss Argentina’s Davis Cup tie away to Sweden next month, local media said on Thursday.

The U.S. Open champion will also miss the Open 13 tournament in Marseille next week, La Nacion newspaper said on its website (www.lanacion.com.ar).

Argentina face Sweden in their Davis Cup world group first round tie in Stockholm from March 5-7.
