Del Potro, on top of the world
NEW YORK: After the biggest victory in his career, Juan Martin del Potro is at the top of world tennis. He is, at least for this hour, and with much merit, the most important tennis player worldwide.
Del Potro subjected today to all relevant protocols of a Grand Slam champion. He cruised through all TV programs, he visited the iconic Empire State, where he posed with the championship trophy, and gave a press conference.
However, amidst the hustle and all the people around him, Del Potro only thinks of coming back to Tandily celebrate with his family. With those who believed in him from the beginning.
“Now I have to start dreaming about other things,” said the US Open winner, showing that nothing but getting better is in his mind. When I’m home I’m going to twig,” said the player.
Then he promised to the whole of the Argentine people: “I don’t guarantee victories, I can’t do that, but when I’m in the court I fight until the last point, whoever it is is on the other side of the net.” Del Potro will arrive to Buenos Aires and he could go to see Boca Juniors, of whom he is a fan.
