Juan Martin is winning Roland Garros this year, book it. He almost took Roger out last year, this year he completes the task.

EDIT: http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/tennis/8511886.stm
'Del Potro out for up to eight weeks with wrist injury'

Maybe not.  :(


We'll see how he does, he can work on other things such as footwork, endurance  etc.

It may help him improve on things he wouldn't ordinarily work on a great deal and so in the long run may be an advantage.



The problem for Juan Martin is if he can't bring the big forehand because of wrist issue, he can't beat Federer. Simple as that.
Then we will fight in the shade.

He should be OK, it might be something as simple as going to a smaller or larger grip.
And he is young, I'm sure he'll get it figured out.

Its good to see he is taking some time off, no use playing if there's not much chance to win and risk further injury.

Del Potro Feels Chilean Earthquake

World No.5 Juan Martin del Potro, who is currently recovering from a right wrist injury in his home town of Buenos Aires, experienced the 8.8 magnitude earthquake that struck Chile early Saturday morning. Such was the force of the Chilean earthquake that it was felt in neighbouring Argentina.



Talking to ATPWorldTour.com, del Potro recalled:

“I was sleeping when at approximately 3:30am I started feeling dizzy and also hearing loud noises. The first thing I thought was that I had left the windows open and the wind was making the noise when it hit against the walls. I live on a high floor of an apartment building so I didn't think this was out of the ordinary.

"The noise was quite loud and it woke me up, so I decided to see what was happening. I was feeling very dizzy and soon realised it wasn't the wind making all the noise.  Everything in my apartment was shaking and when I walked into my living room, the curtains and the decorations on the walls were shaking as well. This went on for 5-6 minutes. 
 
"I am very saddened that the second natural disaster has taken place in such a short amount of time in the Americas, affecting so many people. I have traveled to Chile many times in my life and love the people and the country. My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Chile today and I pray that as many people as possible will escape this terrible disaster safely.”

Del Potro is hoping to regain fitness in time to compete at the first ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournament of the year, the BNP Paribas Open, which begins Thursday, 11 March, in Indian Wells, California.

In his lone appearance of 2010 to date, the 2009 US Open champion reached the fourth round of the Australian Open (l. Cilic).

That is BS....

Buenos Aires is about 700 miles away from Santiago, as the crow flies....
No way he felt the quake in buenos aires

Plus, the chilean quake epicenter was off the chilean coast to the west.
He probably was having a nightmare, about his next encounter with Fed.

Quote
Strong tremors were felt across the continent – from Argentina to Ecuador – and tsunami warnings were issued in the entire Pacific region – from Hawaii to Japan and Australia. A few hours later, the region felt two more tremors of 6.2 and 6.9 degrees, making people run out of their homes with panic and fear.


Quote
Strong shockwaves were felt in Argentina where houses developed cracks and power lines collapsed in the cities near the border with Chile. The earthquake was also felt in Buenos Aires, more than a thousand miles south of the epicentre. As a precaution, tall buildings in downtown Buenos Aires were evacuated.

I'm not talking theoretically, but what's happening right now with JMDP wrist. It's a big concern.
