LONDON, June 19 (Reuters) - Argentina’s Juan Martin Del Potro has pulled out of Wimbledon after having a third operation on his left wrist, organisers said on Friday.

The former U.S. Open champion, who has only played four matches this year, had surgery in the United States on Thursday.

“Juan Martin Del Potro has withdrawn from the Championships 2015 due to recent wrist surgery,” the All England Club said in a statement.
