475 down, 10 to go…

Del Potro’s tennis career came to an abrupt halt in 2010, leaving his fans concerned, anxious, and heartbroken. It is well documented that before a wrist injury shattered his momentum, del Potro had been poised to make a serious run for number one. First Grand Slam title? Tick. A leap into the top four? Tick. A game that just kept improving tournament to tournament? Absolutely. His injury was devastating.

As he returned to the tour in 2011, I wondered what to expect. I used to imagine what I’d wish for him if a genie granted me such an opportunity. How about…
– At least one title
– Decent appearances at Grand Slams
– An impressive return to the top ten (surely a wish since his ranking was 485 at the time)
– No more serious wrist pain

As it turns out, the genie never appeared. But I got wish my wish all the same.

Congratulations, Juan Martin del Potro, on your return to the top ten.
