Argentine tennis star Guido Pella has announced via his Instagram account that he will be out indefinitely after being diagnosed with Morton's neuroma. The poor form clay-court specialist Pella displayed this Golden Swing came as a shock to many but now it all makes sense since the Argentine wasn't able to play his best tennis.
After a third round loss at the Australian Open, the doctors advised world No. 26 Pella to take a break and focus on healing. But the Argentine was eager to play in front of his home fans and he ignored the advice from his doctors.
The decision to play this Golden Swing didn't turn out to be a good one as Pella won just one of his four matches played. Pella's lone win came in front of his home fans at the Cordoba Open, where he beat Facundo Bagnis before losing to Juan Ignacio Londero.
In his other two tournaments played this Golden Swing, the Argentine lost his openers in Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro. Former world No. 20 Pella underlined in his Instagram post that he won't return to competitive action until he gets back to "100 percent."
