Delpo: Return Date Ambiguous, Nominated For Laureus Award

Posted by gauloises1 on February 13, 2010

Quick update on the JMDP wrist situation after Franco Davin spoke to the press:

“What happened was something that surprised us all because Juan Martin was doing very well in training,” Franco Davin, Del Potro’s coach, said.

“In the final training session he felt a pain. He went for a scan and the problem was detected. The important thing now is for him to recover and return to playing without discomfort.”


A lot of the websites that reported the news have backtracked from the initial eight weeks assessment too, now only saying that Delpo aims to return for Indian Wells and Miami (11th and 24th March, respectively). Hmmm. Much as I would love to see him playing those events (obviously nowhere near as much as the people who’ve actually got tickets to go), I’d rather he took a prolonged break if that’s what he needs to get properly rid of this problem. But what’s it got to do with me? They know their business …

Anyway, Delpo has also been nominated for a Laureus award in the ‘Breakthrough of the Year’ category, along with three Brits: F1 driver Jenson Button, teenage diver and rumoured Robbo sweetheart Tom Daley, and cyclist Mark Cavendish. There’s also a golfer and some guy I’ve never heard of. Other tennis stars nominated for awards are Roger Federer (Sportsman of the Year), Serena Williams (Sportswoman of the Year), and Kim Clijsters (Comeback of the Year).

And that is all the Delpo news I have for you right now.

    Ugh. I hate to be a party pooper, but, having lived through many, many Rafa injury lay-offs, I hope Elf takes the extra 4 weeks and doesn’t push it. Rafa has tendinitis and now Elf has it in his wrist. It won’t go away-it will be chronic and he will need to *manage* it. Learn a lesson from team Rafa’s mistakes and don’t push it Juan.

    Well if we can’t have photos, these updates are the next best thing – thank you 🙂

    I hope he takes the extra time off. *keeping fingers crossed* Sorry for those who have tickets but I want Elf fully healthy. Bigger version of Rafa/Elf pic: I love his hairy arms…

    woah thanks I think. that’s wierd. Does it say that she shot him down or vice versa. Wierd that they’d pose for pix. didn’t he meet his last girlfriend in a bowling alley too? anyway he looks hot. Sorry this post has more to do with vapour residue on neptune than tennis but anyway…

      the top part say HE failed to “woo” her but then a paragraph down it says she failed to “woo” him… maybe both of them left “un-wooed”?
