Well folks, sorry to say that we won’t be seeing tennis action from Del Potro and Gonzo at the BNP open. The draws have not been released yet (March 11, 2010) but looking at the entry list, it looks like the two South American tennis superstars did not enter. Of course we understand the tragedy that Chile is going through with the 8.8 earthquake from last week, so that’s a given for a no show. But, the neighbor to Chile, Argentina’s Juan Martin Del Potro pulls a no show? What’s up with that? We were unable to find any reason to his absence for this tennis tournament, and we really find that a bit strange.
So really, we’re not sure why that has happened, we’ve looked high and low and talked to some of our sources, yet, nothing. A tennis tournament without Delpo and Gonzo is like tennis without tennis balls! Oh well, it’s still going to be a great tennis tournament!
