Daniel del Potro was a veterinarian, who instilled in his children integrity, love of family and their passion for animals.

In a touching tribute on Instagram, a spiritual Juan Martin honored his beloved father as "our true and only champion" with moving words from the heart.

“You’ve left us here with a broken heart, but we know that you are resting in peace like you deserve," Juan Martin wrote. "Now you have joined your other angel, and I ask that you please watch over my mom, my sister and me from above.

"You are our true and only champion. Thank you for raising me with values, with honesty, with sacrifice and for doing the impossible for me to be able to achieve my dream of being a tennis player. I don’t know how I’ll live without your presence, but I’ll definitely apply everything that you taught me to never give up. I love you pa!!”

Our deepest condolences to the del Potro family.
