Nadal eating Froot Loops out of his U.S. Open trophy was funny, but Juan Martin Del Potro’s “Sports Center” commercial is far more charming, puckish even. Plus, his smirk is excellent!
Sure, it’s in Spanish, and most of us may be at a loss as to the dialogue, but the charm and character of Del Portro shines through in this playful commercial.
Plus, it’s unique to the sport of tennis — I mean, what other sport signs the camera at the end of a victory? None. It’s unique to our beloved sport.
How far would Delpo have gone if not for the wrist injury? His U.S. Open Series performance was blazing hot, leading up to his win over Roger at the 2009 U.S. Open.
Wrist injuries are the hardest to come back from — and Delpo has been fighting his way back to the top for the past year and a half.
Let’s hope we see some more of his lightening forehand in the future…
Any Spanish speakers out there that might translate the dialogue for us non-speakers?
