Delpo To Play Barcelona, Likes Tournaments

Posted by gauloises1 on February 11, 2010

Marca.com confirmed that Juan Martin del Potro is planning to play Barcelona in April. That’s the tournament that Rafa has won for the last bazillion years. One of them, anyway.

Shiny.

Apparently, Delpo plans to try really hard and play his best in Barcelona. You heard it here first.

He also found time to witter on about being in Dubai for the first time:

“I know it’s a great tournament, great city,” he said of Dubai in a press statement yesterday. “It has tall buildings like Manhattan, so just maybe the setting will mean I can play similar tennis in Dubai as I did in New York,” he added.

… Yeah. That’s exactly how it works.

    LOL at the tall buildings talk, he really likes looking at the architecture of a place doesn’t he? :p Love the pic.

    My two favorite players, together, in one picture! It is such a cute picture of them together. I wonder when this photo was taken?!

    Per someone on MTF the Argie press said that Delpo’s wrist is still hurting and he will not play Marsailles, Dubai and the first round of DC.

    😦 Poor Elf- hope he will be back by IW.

    that quote kinda stopped me when I read it. I hope he’s not a thick, but regardless he might consider backing down off the thick coating of cuteness. Or maybe I just need sleep.

    Anyway the Argentina papers are reporting now he’s not playing Marseilles, Dubai or the beginning of the Davis Cup thanks to the wrist. waaaahhhh. http://www.canchallena.com/1232078-por-la-lesion-en-la-muneca-del-potro-no-jugara-la-serie-de-davis-ante-suecia

    oh there like brothers in tendonitis affected arms! cute ^-^
    although after read disablingly cute things like “It has tall buildings like Manhattan, so just maybe the setting will mean I can play similar tennis in Dubai as I did in New York” im now even more crushed to know he’s injured and not going to be around for a month or so….it makes me a sad sad panda
