Delpo Getting Sweaty. And Wet.

Posted by gauloises1 on January 4, 2010

Not playing right now but not forgotten …

According to the accompanying article, there’s some intensive training going on focusing on his movement. Gosh.

And just to demonstrate that we too are focusing on his movements, here’s Delpo on the beach:

And thanks to the lovely Julia of VamosDavid for the heads-up to the Delpo article.

    I hope movement and fitness are a tandem.

    His beach photos are kind of awkward. But any photo where I don’t see the teeth is generally awesome. (Sorry, can’t get over the teeth… is it just me? Probably.)

    So, er… who’s the girl?

      Totally agree with the teeth. I love the boy but his pearly whites freak me out. I don’t know why but they look slightly hollywood-psychotic (a la Kate Hudson) to me.

      I’m reeeallllyyy hoping it’s his sister …

        Oh I’m with you. CLEARLY his sister.

        The words wishful thinking and denial are conveniently being ignore for the time being. Life is hard enough as it is.

    Agree that the beach photos are kind of awkward- except the one where he is sitting down. He seems super aware that he is super tall when he is on the beach- and only looks at ease when he is running with seagulls a’la a couple of years back.

    Good that he is focusing on movement- hopefully more up and back in the court.

      The article says lateral movement and coming to net so I take that as a positive sign…it seems like the emphasis is really upon movement forward. He’s doing two-a-days in 90 degree heat so I’m hoping that means he has no trouble acclimating to the Australian summer.

    thanks! I agree tennis has come too early this year but missing del Potro especially showing skin. Awkward? All I see is beauty.

    So glad he’s training and such…I wish he were playing a tournament this week so I could better assess his form, but I trust him and his team on the scheduling front since they managed the USO pretty perfectly.

    JM, you’re 6’6 (6’8?). Own it dear.

    Please give those swimming trunks back to Tipsy and just go naked like you know you want to.

    Sister 😛

    I thought this would get the most traction in a JMDP post:
    Is this his real twitter account http://twitter.com/delpo?

    I squeed a bit when I saw these, mmmmmm awkward? Nah that’s just the way he sorta I dunno carries himself I guess. Hot and sweaty and training hard tis good to see and that he’s focusing more on coming to the net. I’m sure he’s 6’7, the hair adds at least an inch! :p I hope (wishful thinking) that’s his sister and as for frolicking nekkid, only in my house dear. 😀 I guess I’m the only one who’s gotten used to his teeth now.
