Go, Go, Gadget Delpo!

Well, here he is, our 2009 U.S. Open men’s singles champ. Whether you’re a Fedtard or Rafanatic, you’ve gotta admit: winning your first Grand Slam by bulldozing through both Nadal and Federer in the same fortnight is an amazing feat and takes steel cajones. In this regard, Juan Martin del Potro stands in a club of one.

I remember seeing him live last year in DC en route to his first Legg Mason Tennis Classic title and coming off thoroughly impressed and entertained by his play. If anything, del Potro is a quick study.

The ATP Tour website has a solid blow-by-blow recap of today’s five-setter, and tomorrow’s rankings will reflect Nadal regaining No. 2 from Murray and Delpo leap-frogging Roddick for No. 5:

  1. Roger Federer: 11,240
  2. Rafael Nadal: 8,845
  3. Andy Murray: 8,390
  4. Novak Djokovic: 7,480
  5. Juan Martin del Potro: 6,845

Congrats to the big man, and, as I tweeted earlier, “Go, go, gadget Delpo!”

Doing some browsing and noticed your website appears a bit messed up in my K-meleon internet browser. But fortunately hardly anyone uses it any longer but you may want to look into it. – If I were two-faced, would I be wearing this one? – Abraham Lincoln 1809 – 1865
