What happened? You can't let MTF and the clowning get to you if that's what it is/was. At least come around for the DC.

From the ATP site: COUNTDOWN TO 2012 - WHAT'S IN STORE FOR DELPO?

As part of our 'Countdown to 2012' series, ATPWorldTour.com looks at the impact Juan Martin del Potro could have in the upcoming season.

Del Potro was voted 2011 ATP World Tour Comeback Player of the Year after rising from a low of No. 485 in January to finish World No. 11 in the South African Airways ATP Rankings. The Argentine closed the season with an impressive showing in the Davis Cup final, pushing David Ferrer to five sets and Rafael Nadal to four sets in two exhilarating clay-court contests, and the tennis world will be looking on to see if the 'Tower of Tandil' can re-establish himself as a Top 5 player and Grand Slam contender in the upcoming season.

Two years ago it was a very different story for del Potro, who had returned home to great fanfare after becoming the first Argentine player to win the US Open title since 1977, beating Roger Federer in a gripping five-set final, and finishing runner-up at the year-end Barclays ATP World Tour Finals (l. to Davydenko). But 2010 was a year to forget for the 23 year old, who was restricted to just six matches as he underwent right wrist surgery in May.

The right hander made a strong return to action this past season, winning two ATP World Tour titles at the Delray Beach International Tennis Championships (d. Tipsarevic) and the Estoril Open (d. Verdasco), reaching the final at the Erste Bank Open in Vienna (l. to Tsonga), and nearly earning one of the coveted eight berths at the year-end Barclays ATP World Tour Finals.

Del Potro is the only player outside the trio of Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal to have tasted Grand Slam glory in the past seven years, since Marat Safin defeated Lleyton Hewitt in the 2005 Australian Open final. The Top 3 players have accounted for every Roland Garros crown since 2004 (Gaston Gaudio) and every Wimbledon trophy since 2002 (Hewitt).

The Argentine’s booming ground strokes, including the blistering forehand that ultimately battered Federer into submission in the 2009 final at Flushing Meadows, earned him a place among the elite Top 4 in the South African Airways ATP Rankings in January 2010. The Argentine goes into 2012 as one of the most likely contenders to dislodge the ‘Big Four’ of Djokovic, Nadal, Federer and Andy Murray, and could make early inroads with an impactful showing at the Australian Open, where he was a quarter-finalist in 2009 (l. to Federer).

Del Potro will start the 2012 season at the Apia International Sydney, hoping for a strong performance ahead of the first major championship of the year in Melbourne. Having already proven his Grand Slam credentials at the 2009 US Open, now fully fit and close to his best form, del Potro is set to be one of the leading contenders at Melbourne Park.

Pretty tough draw in Sydney. Baghdatis and Lopez are early dangers.

Juan Martin has decided not to play the DC first round tie away to Germany next month citing risk of injury due to changing of surfaces (hard courts to clay, then back to hard courts).

Playing Estoril again:

from the ATP site:

uan Martin del Potro will return to the Estadio Nacional this year in a bid to retain his Estoril Open title.

The Argentinean, who will be making his third appearance at the ATP World Tour 250 clay-court tournament, beat Fernando Verdasco 6-2, 6-2 in last year's final.

The 23rd edition of the Estoril Open runs from 28 April to 6 May 2012.

"I'm delighted to have the chance of defending my title at the Estoril Open, a tournament of which I keep found memories, not only for the victory itself," said del Potro, "but above all for the fact that it was in Portugal, where I fully recovered my confidence after the wrist injury."

Tournament Director Joao Lagos said, "It is always a true pleasure to welcome back a former Estoril Open champion, even more when he comes with the desire of retaining his title, as it is the case with Juan Martin del Potro - the first top player we are proud to announce in the same week as he returns to the world's Top 10."

Del Potro, who is currently No. 10 in the South African Airways ATP Rankings, reached the Australian Open quarter-finals (l. to Federer) earlier this month.

When asked about his decision to return to Estoril, del Potro said, "In 2011, I lost in Paris to Novak Djokovic, at that time producing one of the best seasons ever seen in tennis history. But I believe I can go further this year, and there's no better way to start preparing Roland Garros, that doing it at the Estoril Open.

"Starting with the magnificent scenario of the Cascais Miragem Hotel, to the lounge services, the food quality and the hospitality of all the tournament staff, everything went just perfect last year. Of course, I couldn't forget the meeting with my fellow countrymen from SL Benfica, and their support at the tennis tournament, which is something that really pleased me."

In 2011, on his comeback from a wrist injury, he earned the ATP Comeback Of The Year award after capturing two titles (also the Delray Beach International Tennis Championships).
