im very lazy at the moment but i know i have a small article somewhere were cilic talks about del potro and how he admires his style of play and mentions something about a potential "rivarly" between the two of them because there the same age with conflicting styles and stuff, from what i can remeber that was it nothing about being 'friends' as such....but my rooms a bit of a mess and dont even know were to begin looking for it right now

Well,I remembered both of them had said something like He's a very good player,very potential,had won some titles,but I would focus on my game...blah blah blah.also they said they had play tennis together when they were younger.I just know those two formal matches,2002&2003,did they meaned they had practiced or play other games besides?

by age nine he was competing in South American championships and in 2002, he defeated Marin Cilic to win the famed orange bowl championships


I quoted that from a magazine
but I dont think there is some relation between them!

yep,Juan defeated Marin and then through to the final of Orange bowl 2002

Well,I rather believe Marin did care about juan's injury as he showed his concern during shaking hands with juan.

Umm...thats just me guessing.Sorry if I misled you or sth.How I wish to know what they said during that hand shaking!
Anyway its always good to have other people concern/love our ponyboy,isnt it? Even though it might just be my imagination. XD

Cilic was very confident in his interviews couple of years ago, always considering himself a much better player than Delpo, I still remember his interview in croatian, he was talking about Delpo like he was some lame player, and there is no way he can lose. I was very suprised the way he spoke about Delpo, this was in AO 2009, of corse Cilic lost. Today is different story, Cilic has zero confidance, Delpo has GS title, he lost to Cilic in AO 2010 because of his wrist injury, if Delpo was healty i t would be a different story.
