Del Potro in 2017

I guess with Juan having so many injuries and being on and off the Tour the posters just aren't posting here

Re: Del Potro in 2017

Juan was shockingly defeated by Glubis in the 2nd Round at Wimbledon. I wonder if Juan is having more health problems?

Re: Del Potro in 2017

Juan Martin Del Potro hired his new coach!

Who is going to be his coach?

"He was a great player and he's not Argentinian".

He's just toying us, isn't he? It couldn't be Becker, could it?

Great news! I've been saying it for a while, this is the absolute best thing he could possibly do.

Hopefuly whoever it is will help him gain some confidence on that BH.

Bold prediction: Ivanisevic.

Re: Del Potro in 2017

It is such a shame about Juan with that wrist issue now I thought he was going to have an outstanding career until the injury bug got him.

He had already injuries well before the USO'09. Retired several times from a match as a result.

Re: Del Potro in 2017

The biggest problem I remember is the wrist. It is sadly so common for tennis players to have injuries it is almost impossible to keep track of what player has had which injury!

Re: Del Potro in 2017

He had back, abdominal and thigh injuries, too. He's been bitten by the injury bug quite early.

My impression is that Delpo possessed more power than his body could handle on a regular basis. If he ever lifted weights, he did so ineffectively. Look at Alexander Zverev, this guy deadlifts over 300 pounds, which is not a lot for an elite athlete, but probably quite a bit more than most on the tour. He doesn't seem at risk for injury.

It's a shame Delpo's trajectory took such a downward turn after 2009. He could have done a lot of damage to the Big 4.

Re: Del Potro in 2017

I was expecting him to challange Rafa in FO and Fed in USO, but injuries ruined his career, now I have no clue where his career is heading. His backhand is completely lost from being a weapon since his return.

no. Juan martin Del Potro

My goodness I hadn't fully realized the extent of Juan's injuries nor how early they hit him. He just always looked so big, strong, and healthy. I also had thought he was going to do a lot of damage to the Big 4. No wonder it never happened with all those injuries so early.

Re: Del Potro in 2017

I felt so sorry for Juan in his match against Kei in Washington. He lost the match in straight sets and he just looked like a shell of the player he used to be

Re: Del Potro in 2017

Juan defeated John Isner in his 1st Rd of the Roger's Cup. It was a straight set win and Del Potro looked much better playing tonight.
