We JUST got him back at the end of 2010 after being absent from our TV screens for 9 months due to wrist surgery, and now after getting back in top ten form and winning the SAP Open and more recently the Estoril Open, Juan Martin del Potro is out with another injury, an 8 mm tear in his one of his left quadriceps muscles (rectus femoris) that he sustained in Madrid, and is his trip to Roland Garros hangs in the balance.
Although many, even his own team, have written off an appearance in Paris altogether, Delpo remains optimistic, at least on Twitter:
The results of my studies were a tear in the hip. I have started rehabilitation and will do everything possible to be in Paris.
Hopefully he will come back, and STAY back soon.
