Apropos of nothing, I present to you a photo of DelPo in Argentina. On Sunday, he was a spectator at a polo tournament, before attending a football match at La Bombonera stadium, home of his beloved Boca Juniors.
I hope Christopher Clarey does not find out about DelPo’s extended excursion, lest he write a critical analysis of DelPo’s preparation for Davis Cup.
Apparently, not qualifying for London has made DelPo a little stir-crazy. He has recently started Tweeting up a storm in English and he also offered an English-subtitled version of his welcome video on Facebook. Someone is giving him social media lessons.
In more somber news, the mother of Argentine football legend (and former Boca Jrs. striker) Diego Maradona recently passed away. Del Potro is reported to have attended the wake with former Boca Jrs. striker Martin Palermo, among others.
