Good to see him back, but oh boy... disappointing loss. Should've really won both sets.

Vasek played an excellent match throughout. Del Potro had too many dips and served too many double faults, expected of his first match back. He should probably try vulturing Casablanca and some clown events to get rhythm going.

Pospisil in 2, as I predicted.

Del Potro was understandably sluggish, slow on his legs and played the most important points like a Futures player (and that costed him both sets). It's pretty normal after a relatively long absence. So I've got no worries for him. He'll be fine with match practice.
His wrists seemed to be holding just fine. I don't know what happened to his right foot though, in the end of the 2nd set. He stopped playing a point and held it for a few seconds, and seemed bothered by it.

He still can't hit a backhand...

Unlucky Delpo. He was hitting some nice forehands but his BH was 5%. It's expected after 1 year out. Even though he got beaten it was great seeing him play again. Hope his wrist will get stronger for the clay court season.

But did he injure himself?

^Just when you think that poster can't get anymore pitiful.

Good to see Delpo play again but that just won't do. He can't do everything possible to protect his backhand for the rest of his career. His FH is still great but it won't be enough.

Well, I'm not the biggest fan, but it was good to see him back on the court. Still not sure if this was the best timing for him to come back, due to the wrist. Even though he lost, he gave his best effort, which is all he can do at this point. It'll take time before he's back to normal, but I'm confident IF he can remain healthy (???) he'll be back to challenging Nole, Rafa and Roger in no time.

Forehand is as great as it ever was, BH is still a liability though. Mental toughness is still not there, hence so many DFs.

Ban that WTA forum mug please.
