It's merely due to the guy's great talent and young age that he's still managed to make it back to the top-10 - a fact I'm very happy about.
You do not want to know how many players NEVER managed to make it back after an injury like he suffered.
WTF??? So contriving a nasty virus infection is someone's "own problem"?
Now I've heard it all.
Del Potro's injury isn't comparable to Soderling's sickness. Soderling had mono which is a kissing disease.
You act as if he was born with that virus infection. Chances are he could have prevented it, but he didn't. With this rational, people would say, "Federer is quite unlucky, if he didn't have mono, he'd have more slams by now".
