I read this story on tennis speculating that Juan Martin Del Potro and his injured wrist might be ready in time to defend his title at the U.S. Open.

Del Po is currently targeting a return as early as the Davis Cup on September 17 which he says is a “good date”. But the US Open is a full 18 days before the his return date, so I doubt his recovery timetable could move up a full three weeks to allow him to compete in NY.

Just because he might play Davis Cup doesn’t mean he’ll return to NY, there just too far apart. As much as I’d like to see him at the US Open, my hopes aren’t high.
