I was wondering what Delpo was referring to, so this must be one of those articles Juan was talking about in his May 4th letter, calling them "bogus" and "news that are not true."
"The Mysterious Del Potro

The world number four has no date of return to the circuit in the few references to their environment gives talks about the injury to his right wrist had questions that exceed the disease.
At this point, the question is beyond the tennis world: what happens to Juan Martin del Potro? The popular player Tandil, 21, No. 1 Argentine fourth in the world and champion of the last U.S. Open is not present in men's tennis circuit, the ATP World Tour, since January 24, Australia's Open, fell into the knockout final against Croatian Marin Cilic. Exactly 96 days, just over three months in which, in principle, was tendinitis in his right wrist the grounds for departure. Is that it?
Del Potro is trained, but says he feels pain in the wrist. Those that were hit recently and know how her right tennis remains as potent as ever. However, the player does not feel comfortable. The doubts are renewed, will be screened again and his return suffered another delay. Basically, this is what was happening in recent times. Should return to Miami and got out. The same happened to Monte Carlo and what would be his expected return next week or next at the Madrid Masters 1000. Today, Del Potro has no date for return to play. The tennis world some time ago that speaks something that goes beyond the sport: it speaks specifically of stage fright syndrome.
The group almost sepulchral silence that surrounds it, talking about his staff and his group of collaborators and friends, is the base where they germinate speculation. The few answers offered are unconvincing.
"There is nothing about it," his manager said yesterday international, Italian Ugo Colombini, ESPN Radio about the Tandil mood problems. However, his reference to the future was striking: "We do not know when to return. We hope to replace 100 percent of the wrist and then see the calendar," Colombini said. "Details of the injury? None.
A few weeks ago, Rafael Groppo, local manager of Del Potro, told La Nacion an unsubstantiated statement: "The good thing is that we know that the injury is not serious." Groppo never mentioned something that this newspaper found out and released hours later, which led the player to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, United States, to be reviewed by one of the best hand specialists in the world, Richard Berger, who recommended four weeks of treatment for residual tendinitis. At these times, the player is there again, doing further testing.
The question that arises is: if the injury was not important, why for more than three months not playing? Or the condition in his right wrist is actually worse than they say or something else. In this last statement concerns the alleged fall from Del Potro to play again.
So then, THE NATION mentioned that at this time absent Juan Martin had fallen sheets lived all their explosion from among world tennis stars. We talked about a boy who always lived quietly maturing processes, which in a professional sportsman and as public as he exposed. Realizing this, is framed their triumphs and failures at different stages of growth. He always asked for time and calm so as not to stifle a huge promise.
To understand their experiences, back to the source. The first symptoms of the right wrist injury go back to the 2009 Miami Masters 1000. By then, when some began to question why that tall boy, who had exploited months earlier in the circuit, he could not beat the Fantastic Four, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray. In that contest won first Spanish, then the number 1 in the world. Its growth came to be so significant that he beat Murray reached the semifinals at Roland Garros and defeated for the first time Federer, who was already the number one again in U.S. Open final.
Ecstasy was the sport for someone who had grown up dreaming of that particular title. The exclusive local Nike on Fifth Avenue in New York morning trimmed his full figure. I boarded the Empire State for a special photo shoot and ran televisisvos the most important programs in the morning. In Buenos Aires, Tandil and Rosario, where he played an exhibition, there was a hero's welcome. Caused the stir of a Beatle or Rolling Stone.
When he returned to the circuit, fell in two early rounds in a row, Tokyo and Shanghai Masters 1000, where again the problems in that area. She recovered and reached the final of the Masters at the end of the year with another victory over Federer.
The rest was relative. He went on holiday knowing that should quickly prepare the Australia Open. Before this event, again took it as a wretched wrist. He played well, but then the real ordeal began.
The secrecy of the group that works with Juan Martin does not help to decompress the situation. He always spoke of a closed circle, especially family, which measured the level of exposure. In fact, no family member ever offered an interview, not even a few casual words. But that was accentuated each and spread more and more. Today, the coaching staff of Del Potro can only speak with the permission of Daniel, the father of John Martin, who spend all decisions of the "Del Potro company." Groppo not make public statements and rarely attends calls. And Colombini, also yesterday, just said: "From here (in Europe) is difficult to hear, I know they are helping doctors, is a matter more of them. In some ways, we are trying to resolve the issue."
The mystery of the absence of Del Potro also exceeds the sports because a tennis player of his caliber is not only a business in itself, but also is part of a larger one. Sponsors such as Nike, Wilson, Sony Ericsson and Gatorade will not pay for a player who does not play: they buy their successful image. For the phone company, which in turn is the title sponsor of the 1000 Miami Masters, will there not have been the same just one of his figures engaged in the competition held recently?
Among other things, the boy had consented to attend the launch of scholarships Argentina Tennis Association for tennis players under 21 for a distance education program of the Argentine Army, with which Del Potro ended the secondary level. But was not there, although he was seen recently in the following Bombonera Boca and his friend Martin Palermo.
So far as could find THE NATION, Del Potro is psychological treatment, but there were consultations. Beyond that, everything is a mystery.
