Ugh.. it's the same every time! It doesn't rain for weeks at the tennis location, but a storm moves in right in the middle of the tennis event! fucking awesome

Maybe 4 or 5 if he wants to get more of a workout in.

Del Potro's statements in the press conference after his match against Soderling... they're translated by me so probably there are gramar mistakes (sorry)

Re: Del Potro Is Back - February/March 2011; Miami R4 vs. Fish

The guy at the hotel desk told me that they've not had rain in over 3 months and now they get rain when they are having the tournament. Always happens, but what can you do about it, besides put a roof on every stadium, which probably isn't financially possible for some of the smaller events that are held outdoors. So, he's scheduled for 11am tomorrow. I sure hope he's asleep by now and he sets the alarm and asks for a wake up call in the morning. Of course, the forecast for rain doesn't make it look very good, but I'm hopeful that if there is enough of a window of clear weather, they can at least get his match in. Definitely a bonus to being the first match on a court that day.

Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far you can go.

Re: Del Potro Is Back - February/March 2011; Miami R4 vs. Fish

I'm close to crying.....I'm damn sad over this result. Hope he will rest a lot in the next month and be ready for Madrid. What a shame Fish advances here.....I won't watch this damn tournament anymore.

Re: Del Potro Is Back - February/March 2011; Miami R4 vs. Fish

no regrets, Del Potro was too tired and he played badly, slow move, too much unforced errors, he was not ready for this match,

he plays often badly the morning, it's not the first time ( remember his final at montreal 2009, final at Delray Beach one month ago ), and when the temperature is hot it's getting worse

Del Potro needs to rest himself, and to improve his fitness, otherwise the same problem can happen during the clay season

Re: Del Potro Is Back - February/March 2011; Miami R4 vs. Fish

Fish had some big serves. Juan was frustrated at times.hot and humid but still not as bad as it gets in Washington in summer. I'm in the shade recovering right now. I don't want to sit in the sun on grandstand right now. I do want to see Simon match and Nadal and Nole. I ran right into a player as I was getting the car from valet. I think we both were a bit shock to see the other. I knew there had to be someone here. Too much security and too private. They won't let you near this place if you don't belong.

Re: Del Potro Is Back - February/March 2011; Miami R4 vs. Fish

on his website :

Quote:
Después de una inspiradora victoria ante Robin Söderling, Delpo perdió en los octavos de final del "Sony Ericsson Open" ante el estadounidense Mardy Fish, por 7-5 y 7-6.

Lo próximo es la serie europea en dónde jugará los ATP World Tour Masters 1000 de Monte-Carlo, Madrid y Roma, y dos Grand Slams.
http://www.del-potro.com.ar/

Del Potro will play Monte-Carlo ?

probably a mistake because he is not on the entry list:

Re: Del Potro Is Back - February/March 2011; Miami R4 vs. Fish

Wow, I was hoping he'd get some more time off before starting on clay. In other news, I was taking a walk around this place on the walking path and saw Willy Canas on the tennis courts here. Yet another surprise. Who will I run into next? I actually have decided that I like this place where the hotel is so much, I'm going to see how much the residences/condos are. Save up some money and with the way the real estate market in Florida keeps going down, in a few years I might be able to snag one if the right deal comes along. However, I would have to upgrade the car to fit in, lol.

He plays next Madrid. No Estoril this year. He confirmed. There is something with his wrist again, doctor checking it, hope nothing serious this time.

Re: Del Potro Is Back - February/March 2011; Miami R4 vs. Fish

My computer was down. Now it's OK. I don't care much about the loss against Fish. Waiting for the clay season, now

I'll present you some interesting stats about the 1st part of the season, soon

Grigor Dimitrov | Rafael Nadal | Juan Martin del Potro | Andy Murray
