Elf Comes Home
Posted by gauloises1 on May 7, 2010
Juan Martin del Potro (yes, we still care about him more than anyone else) has returned home to Argentina. He’s alive! I consider this the first hurdle successfully passed. He’ll have to go back to the US in 15 days to check on the progress of the wrist, though.
Why is he pushing that thing himself?!
Delpo said that the surgery had left him more relaxed and he was going to concentrate on relaxing and enjoying himself rather than concentrating on the tournaments that he’s missing, the ranking points he’s losing, the fact that the best years of his career are passing him by, etc. All of which is eminently sensible.
On a sweet note, he said that he’s had calls from Federer and Nadal, and that Andy Murray had written him an email. Presumably saying something other than “your mum”. Federer also had some encouraging words in Estoril today. Love the support. Love it.
Oh, and there’s glorious, unintelligible-to-me video here.
