Federer was due to face Del Potro in Miami on Friday

Roger Federer has pulled out of his comeback match against Juan Martin Del Potro at the Miami Open with a stomach bug.

The 34-year-old was due to make his return on Friday after suffering a knee injury following January’s Australian Open, which required surgery.

But the 17-time Grand Slam champion from Switzerland will have to wait for his tournament return.

His place in the draw is taken by lucky loser Horacio Zeballos of Argentina.
