    I knew he would win a slam sooner than later. He is my fav player-introduced me to tennis. Such a gentleman on court, in winning and defeat. Has come a long long way since Fed gave him a show down at Aussie Open. Great work, great mind and determination Juan Martin. Hope you go all the way to the top!

    Del Potro should wear short sleeve shirts like other guys do. Showing his sweaty, hairy underarms is in bad taste, gross and disgusting.

    I would like the contact for Juan Martin del Potro as I am a fan of his.
    I think he is a wonderful player and I hope he wins a grand slam soon.
    I don't know whether he thinks he has fans being No.5 in the world but he certainly does. He should fear no one when playing because he can beat them all.
    I would like a reply please. My email address is: jeannette@silvester101.fsnet.co.uk. Thank you
