I hope he isn't too discouraged right now. I was encouraged by what I saw. It just takes time and matches to get back from a big injury like this. Biggest thing I noticed was his footwork isn't where it needs to be, he was always a step behind.

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

I also think he can play 1-2 Challengers

After Delray Beach, there is Davis Cup, but I don't believe he'll play for Argentina, so he can play 1 Challenger event, but I doubt he'll decide to do it.

Hope, he can reach at least 1/2 final in one of the events in USA(Delray Beach gives the best opportunity

The best thing for now is that he'll have almost 3 weeks, in which he can train harder and get in better physical form.

VAMOS!

Re: Del Potro Is Back - February/March 2011; USA, baby!!!

I've found some stats for Delpo for his first 4 matches of the year. Here they are:
-54 aces(13.5 average per match)
-1st serve in: 58% average per match
-Pts won on 1st serve: 72.5% per match
-Pts won on 2nd serve: 50.5% per match
-BP won; 7/14(50%)
-BP saved: 17/29(58.6%)

Discuss these stats, please

Re: Del Potro Is Back - February/March 2011; USA, baby!!!

do you have his statistics for 2009 ?

it's difficult to compare if we don't have all the elements,

the TV commentators have said that the Delpo' speed serve was often lower than the Baghdatis' serve, which was strange and unusual because the serve ( with his forehand ) is the main weapon for Del Potro ( he can serve very fast on first and second ball )

Ok, so what do you think he should do the next couple weeks? Play a challenger? Practice more? Work on fitness? The only thing I think might be a good idea is play Hawaii challenger. It would be good practice, I think he could easily beat all those guys, good for the confidence, and come on, it's Hawaii. Hard to mope around and get down on yourself in a place like that.

challengers to get match play in

It's a good idea to play in Hawaii and I hope, he'll decide to do it. Some more practice, confidence and points sound good

yes, Del Potro should play challengers, it's better for him ( easy opponents ) and he will play 5 matchs in a row in a week, very good way to improve his confidence and his tennis
