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.
