D Cup: Pico Out, Delbo In. Not a Typo.
Posted by gauloises1 on March 1, 2010
So, as I mentioned in a previous post, Juan Monaco injured what looked like an intercostal muscle during his semi-final match against Juan Carlos Ferrero in Acapulco on Friday. He is as a consequence out of a Davis Cup squad already lacking del Potro and Nalbandian and facing a tie against the nation of Robin Soderling. Even seeing him get a shirtless massage doesn’t make up for that.
So who are Argentina sending in his place in what is increasingly a suicide mission to Sweden? Step forth, Federico Del Bonis. Your time has come.
Delbo is nineteen years old, left-handed and, according to a tennistical expert of my acquaintance, ‘kind of looks like a handsomer Nose Job’. Leaving aside the fact that there is no such thing as a handsomer Nose Job, Del Bonis is currently ranked 211 in the world with a career high of 195, has won two Challenger titles and a Futures, is currently 1 for 6 in 2010, and has played just one ATP main draw match in his young life (against Wawrinka in Gstad). He lost it.
Still, I’m sure it’ll go well.
