Delpo To Be Healthy for Marseilles, Davis Cup. Hopefully.

Posted by gauloises1 on February 2, 2010

According to Martinininiano Orazi in this article, or at least Google Translate’s version of this article, Delpo’s recovering well from his wrist problem and has resumed training in preparation for his next tournament (Marseilles, the week after next). Apparently he also finished the Open with some foot problems due to soft shoes (?), so if you see him wearing sandals over socks, you now know he’s just following medical advice as well as being an oaf.

The article also suggests that he’ll definitely be playing in the Davis Cup tie against Sweden at the beginning of March, which Nalbandian of course is also desperate to be fit for. So that could be interesting. Have a cute picture.

That is all.

    This post brightened an otherwise poo day, so thank you 🙂
    Also – I wouldn’t object to seeing a photo of Delpo in socks and sandals, it would be adorably goofy.

          I love how marginal the sock in sandal is in that photo.

          Thanks for the article, I was wondering what the story was. He could take a few hints from Murray on website public relations.
          Literal translations are riduculous and funny such as … “The doctor recommended that you use sandals, who has discovered his feet.” ha ha how do I get in on that action?

            “the doctor reccomended wearing sandals, that have the feet uncovered” would pretty much be what it says…
            “who has discovered his feet” made me laugh….Hold up…Juan Martin Del Potro has FEET?!? no way since when!? long has this guy been sitting on this information! xD

    It pains me that he had a fever and I wasn’t there to nurse him back to health. Some of my delicious “soup” would have done him a lot of good.
