Del Potro, by his own words, was injured in the gym during preseaon workouts and has been given two different diagnosis so far, he needs more medical tests he will take now when he returns home... One, the less severe, is a "protusion" in a back disc and the other, the more lilkely and worse case, is that he has a microfracture in the 3rd vertabrae, which doctors said to him couldn't be aggravated more... (a little risky anyway in my opinion)
Del Pony should injury his back where practiced serves in the prea season pretty weak guy , anyway serving worse than a girl and in pain he played a very good match, in normal condition he could have beaten Froggy Pics for sure.
I didn't realize he was suffering from such a serious injury. He seemed to be playing relatively well in this match, aside from the slow serves and errors moving to the forehand side which were affected by his injury.
I am so sad that Del Potro has this back injury. From personal experience I know what it's like to have a bad back injury. It is really tough. I wish him all the best and hope he can recover fully but it will take time. As for all the posters who have posted negative and disparaging posts, all I say is count yourself lucky you are not in the same situation. Sometimes I wonder how some people can go around with the attitude they display in G.M. As a Ferrer fan I am not happy that he had to win in such circumstances.
