Indian Wells: Sixth-seeded Argentinian Juan Martin del Potro pulled out of the Indian Wells Masters on Sunday with a left wrist injury. The same injury had forced the world number seven to retire from his first round match in Dubai last month.

"It's still hurting a lot, I'm not feeling 100 percent, I'm not in good condition to compete," 2013 finalist del Potro said in a hastily-arranged press conference at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden.

He had been slated to play Spain's Feliciano Lopez in a second-round match on Sunday after enjoying a first-round bye. Since he had yet to play a match, his place in the draw will be taken by British lucky loser James Ward.
