Delpo Targets September Return.

Posted by gauloises1 on July 18, 2010

Tie a yellow ribbon around whatever you like: there’s signs of life on the Delpo front. He went to Minnesota last week to consult his surgeon Dr. Berger and confirmed via his newly verified twitter that satisfactory progress is being made and after some more strengthening work he should be ready to start hitting again. (Remember when he used to play tennis?).

Delpo was also interviewed on his way out to the States and said that he’s tired of not being able to play and that the September Davis Cup semi-final against France would be a ‘good time to return’ if he can be ready in time. This clearly means he’ll definitely be back then if not sooner and will beat Nadal and Federer at Flushing Meadows so that Roddick can win the US Open, or something.

As you might gather, I’m remaining cautiously pessimistic, because there’s no guarantee that when he starts hitting balls again, his wrist doesn’t just drop off or something. I’m just saying. But, you know, progress appears to be happening. This is a Good Thing. And hey, video.

Take your damn time, Delpo.

Don’t fall off, Delpo’s wrist.

That is all.

    Hey I think you were looking for this video a while ago.Not sure if you found it or not but here it is anyway its delpo when he lost to Andy Murray at the US open in 2008 and its similiar to how I felt when I heard he would be absent for so long…

    I’m going to be cautiously optimistic on the injury front. Happy that progress is being made and keeping fingers crossed for smooth sailing and no setbacks.

    and as an aside, that Roddick/DelPo piece is the most nonsensical thing I’ve ever read. On multiple levels.

    Glad to hear about Delpo’s progress. When even Roger Federer is missing you, THAT’s saying something :). I have a few ideas of how he can strengthen that wrist in no time, but it would require a private consultation. ( I may weigh only 130 lbs, but i have bloody Wrists of Steel).

    I wouldn’t even charge for my expertise ;D
