F is for Forehand (or fearhand)
"Juan Martin del Potro’s forehand, especially on the run, hurtles through the court like a ballistic missile. Accompanied by his deep, guttural grunt, there is nothing quite like it in tennis." (source)
F is for Football
Juan Martin Del Potro: I’ll get out of bed at any time to watch Boca. When I was 16, Boca were playing in the Intercontinental Cup against Milan.I put the TV on ever so quietly, though, and watched the whole game, which went to penalties and lasted forever. Then an hour later I went out and lost 6-2, 6-2. Everyone wanted to kill me but I was so pleased. Boca had won the Intercontinental Cup, after all, and mine was just another tournament.
E is for eyes
Those tender, beautiful green eyes, the ones we refer to as “puppy dog eyes”.
D is for Davis Cup
“In truth, it wasn’t easy to play,” Del Potro told the crowd. “You can see how I suffered playing. I did it for all of you. Playing here means so much for you, for the country, for Argentine tennis — for everyone and me too. I want to thank you for the love and support you have always shown me.”
Favourite photos of Delpo during world tour finals.
Proud of the last picture that I took myself, Delpo tapping the little mascot on the head as they walk out.
