We will miss him here in Washington this year  :crying:. Seeing him play in 2008 and 2009 was an amazing experience.  I hope he does not rush the return.

I hope he takes the needed time, it would be terrible to have the wrist break down again.

I just don't see how Del Potro will be ready before late September.
Then we will fight in the shade.

Juan Martin Del Potro Back on the Tennis Court

by Tom Gainey
After weeks of speculation and months of rehab, US Open champion Juan Martin Del Potro is finally back hitting tennis balls again as of today.
The Argentine tweeted earlier Monday: “Que lindo volver a pegarle a la pelotita,aunque fue suave,tuve la raqueta en la mano nuevamente..”According to Google, translated to English he said it was nice to hit the ball again.
It remains unclear as to whether Del Potro, who hasn’t played since January, will defend his US Open title. Coach Franco Davin has not set a return date while his trainer, Diego Rivas, has said that once his tennis skills shape up he’ll have another period to get physically fit.
If Del Potro is unable to play in New York his next target for a return date is at the Davis Cup, then Bangkok in late September.


From X-tennis:  Something is lost in the Google translation. Cierto?

My translation would be: "how nice was hitting the ball again, although it was soft, I held the racqet in my hand again.

I will add, that Franco Davin, his coach, said that Del potro will have to start from the beginning, hittin from 20 to 30 balls a day. Plus, he made it very clear that they dont have to go crazy with the return, so nothing until bangkok or even later.

Yeah I figure we won't see full-power Del Potro until the Australian Open.
Then we will fight in the shade.

Del Potro underwent right wrist surgery in May.

I really liked the endearing diminutive for the tennis ball. He clearly is longing to get back.

Remember this is not the first time Del Potro has had a career threatening injury. He almost retired with the back in spring of 2008.
Then we will fight in the shade.

News out of Argentina is that Juan Martin Del Potro’s recent comeback is on hold, and fortunately not because of his wrist.

According to his management, Del Potro will sit out Shanghai and likely the remainder of the season to sort out other minor physical issues.


Not good, minor physical issues usually resolve in shorter time but we'll just have to see how it all plays out.  :(

UPDATE: On his twitter account today, Juan Martin Del Potro announced that he has ruled out Vienna and remainder of the 2010 season. He will focus on getting fitter and stronger for the 2011.

yes, I am following his recovery in the argentinian media and yesterday he was saying "I will need quite al ong time to get in shape and fully recovered".
Self-praise is for losers. Be a winner. Stand for something. Always have class, and be humble.
