Del Potro Hopeful of Miami Return
March 9, 2010 · Print This Article

Reigning US Open champion Juan Martin del Potro remains hopeful of a return to the ATP World Tour during the upcoming Miami Masters event in Florida.

Sustaining a wrist injury last fall, del Potro has not seen court action since losing to Marin Cilic in five sets at the Australian Open.

The current world No. 5 has reportedly not encountered any pain during his recent training sessions.

I heard today on the local news that he started to feel pain in his wrist again after a training session. And aparently, today, he is not going to miami.

Bad news... I hoped he would return in Miami. Hope he gets better soon!
I was really looking forward to his return, I just hope this won't be a lingering problem.

Yup, so did I... Disappointed he had to withdraw, but it's better for him to withdraw now and continue his treatment rather than going to Miami and getting an injury again. Hope he'll be back soon!

BTW, judging by your sig. pic., we both have the same favorite players  :drinks:

He has a good team and just finished growing(I think), he'll be OK.
I'm looking foreward to him returning too.
I would be very disappointed if he doesn't make #1 and at least a few more GS's.

He works on all aspects of his game and should get better.

 :scared:



Del Potro demonstrates a perfect point of contact for a power serve. At 6'6", Juan Martin has an inherent advantage in serving, and he adds almost another foot to his height of contact with a leg thrust that lifts him off the ground. Leaning into the court and meeting the ball at full arm extension, Juan Martin will deliver maximum forward power from a high starting point that will help him angle the ball into the service box.







The position of his hips and the twisting of his upper body indicate that Juan Martin is hitting this forehand in a semi-open stance, which gives him a fairly even mix of rotational and linear power production. Del Potro's height may largely explain why his grip is closer to Eastern than to the more common (among the pros) Semi-Western. The main advantage of more western grips is to handle higher balls, but when you're as tall as Juan Martin, fewer balls seem high to you and more balls seem low, where a more western position is weaker.

translation:

Argentina's Juan Martin Del Potro will not play in Monte Carlo and Barcelona. The newspaper La Nacion said that the 21 year old is bothered by problems with his right wrist tendon. Del Potro, No. 5 ATP, just visited the United States and was seen by Dr. Richard Berger. The stop, could mean Del Potro will also miss Rome. The Argentine, at this point, is expected to return to action May 10 at Madrid.



Wow, that's pretty messed up...

Doesn't look to good. Even after all this time.


Del Potro's wrist still injured; tour return unclear
Ticker - Friday, April 9, 2010

The swelling on Juan Martin del Potro's wrist has not fully subsided and it is not clear when he will be able to return to the tour, according to his physiotherapist Diego Rivas.

Del Potro has not played since the Australian Open.

"It's just working and waiting to see the best time to play again," Rivas told Argentine radio, but said the U.S. Open champion would not require surgery.—

I hope it doesn't come to surgery, but it has been quite awhile and the wrist is still swollen, I would think it should have been healed a long time ago.

Potro is an exciting player, I like to see how the top players try to handle his game, and also to see if he's still progressing (getting better).

The deadly forehand.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGodD1fMfHY[/youtube]



At 6'6", Juan Martin Del Potro needs quite a knee bend to get a two-handed backhand ready for a low ball. With a one-handed slice, he could expend less energy, but without topspin, he couldn't hit the ball as hard and keep it in the court. In this photo, the position of Del Potro's racquet, well below the ball, indicates that he does intend to use topspin.

Juan Martin is using the most common two-handed grip, with his right hand in a Continental position and his left in an Eastern forehand position. His stance is slightly closed, but not enough to interfere with his swing. Generally, the bigger and stronger a player is, the less backswing he needs to generate power, and a more compact backswing has the advantage of simplifying timing and certainty of contact.
