MELBOURNE, Australia - Juan Martin del Potros injury time-off from Grand Slam tournaments just got a little longer.The 2009 U.S. Open winner withdrew Sunday from the Australian Open on the eve of the tournament to avoid re-injuring a surgically-repaired wrist that he said had been hurting him for the last couple days and weeks.The 26-year-old Argentine was one of the most significant absentees from the mens game for much of last season, which he spent recovering from major left wrist surgery after bouncing back from right wrist surgery in 2010. He hasnt played at a major since Melbourne last year, where he lost in the second round.Nothing new. Nothing dangerous. But I think my wrist is not ready for playing in this important tournament, del Potro told a media conference, after cutting short a practice session. It was a tough decision but could be a smart decision if I want to stay healthy and play for the whole year.Del Potro made it the quarterfinals of the Sydney International last week, his first tournament after 11 months off the tour.I really enjoyed playing tennis again last week in Sydney, winning a couple matches. I didnt expect that for sure, said del Potro, who had a career-high ranking of No. 4 in 2010 but has slipped to 276th.Del Potro said he would consult with his doctor and hoped to return to tournaments very, very soon.Del Potro had drawn one of the toughest first-round assignments in Melbourne against 24-year-old Jerzy Janowicz, who won last weeks Hopman Cup team event with Poland teammate Agnieszka Radwanska.Janowicz will now play 24-year-old lucky-loser Hiroki Moriya, a Japanese player ranked 146th.

HOUSTON -- Lance Berkman and Roy Oswalt signed one-day contracts and officially retired as Astros on Saturday. Berkman and Oswalt were drafted by the Astros a year apart and came up through the minors together before Berkman made his major league debut in 1999 and Oswalt followed less than two years later. "Its an honour to come back here and retire as an Astro," Oswalt said. "Lance and I both came up through the organization about the same time. We got to play together for a long time. The best thing about Houston was that it was always home. I know Im speaking for myself, but I went to Philadelphia, Texas and Colorado afterwards, but Houston has always been home." Berkman said it was special to play for an organization that had the tradition the Astros did. "We all kind of felt like we were all part of the Astros family," Berkman said. "Thats what made this, in my opinion, a special place to be. They made a conscious effort to draft guys, develop them and keep them here for a long time." As part of the pregame ceremony to celebrate the two players, a video played with comments from Nolan Ryan, Jake Peavy, Tony La Russa and Albert Pujols and former teammates Brad Ausmus, Andy Pettitte, Craig Biggio and Adam Everett.

Berkman spent 12 of his 15 seasons in the majors with the Astros after being Houstons first pick in the 1997 draft out of Rice. For his career, he hit .293 in 1,879 games with 366 home runs and 1,234 RBIs with a .406 on-base percentage and a .537 slugging percentage. Oswalt finished his 13-season career with a 163-102 record in 365 appearances -- 341 starts -- with a 3.36 ERA. Oswalt, a three-time All Star, reached 20 wins in 2004 and 2005 and was a 19-game winner in 2002. After being selected by the Astros in the 23rd round of the 1996 draft, Oswalt was called up to the majors in 2001, finishing that season with a 14-3 record in 28 appearances -- 20 starts -- with a 2.73 ERA. "You always wonder when it will be your last year," Oswalt said. "My goal when I first started was to play 10 years. I felt that if you play 10 solid years in the big leagues, you have had a solid year, and I got to play 13. I feel like some days I can still play. I didnt want to walk away that way where you cant play anymore. Thats pretty special." ' ' ' on Wednesday night. ...
