First the bad news:
Fernando Gonzalez will have surgery next month on his right hip, and possibly his knees, side lining him for at least 9 months. He has been out of action for most of the year, with his most recent return ending in a first round retirement at the US Open. Lets hope for a speedy recovery for Chili's top player.
And now to the fabulous news:
We heard whispers that he was coming, but now it is confirmed,
Don't speak Spanish? Well, neither do I, but it means that Del Potro will be playing next week in the Thailand Open, his first tourney back since his wrist injury. Thank the Tennis Gods! He has been missed.
