For all the talent and abilities Juan Martin del Potro possesses, a heart of gold just might be his unmatched quality.
Prepared to call it a career this month unless something drastically changes, Del Potro will be the deserved center of attention over the next two weeks as he competes on the ATP Tour for the first time since June 2019.
DelPo's sincere spirit has already taken over his first stop, a 250-level event in Buenos Aires. Over the weekend, the 33-year-old warmed hearts in an adorable interaction.
A young boy approached the Tower of Tandil by returning a tennis ball. Unassuming, he turned to leave, only to soon share a warm moment with the 2009 US Open champion.
