Del Potro & the Make-a-Wish Foundation

Courtesy of the Make-a-Wish foundation, Del Potro recently met with a fan from Buenos Aires.  Margarita Aguerre is a 16-year old tennis fan who is currently recovering from Ewing’s sarcoma, a rare type of cancer.  Through the Make-a-Wish foundation, she requested a meeting with her favorite tennis player.

Above is a highlight from their meeting and hitting session (starts at 4:10).  I love her reaction when he walks into the room to greet her.  Also, when she surprises him with her tennis knowledge!  Wishing her all the best during her recovery.

I play favorites with Juan Martin Del Potro, Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, David Ferrer, Feliciano Lopez, Gilles Simon and the long line of mercurial talent that drives me to despair in front of the screen at odd hours during the week.

  1. Asking questions are genuinely good thing if you are not understanding anything
    entirely, but this paragraph presents good understanding
    even.
