US Open: Juan Martin Del Potro

The US Open started on Monday in New York City, and in honor of the Open, I'm posting a handsome male tennis player each day there is play.

Today, I'm featuring the super tall Argentinian Juan Martin Del Potro (nicknamed Delpo) who stands 6'6". Currently ranked 18 in the world, he beat fellow countryman Diego Junqueira today to move on to the third round. I don't expect Delpo to win the Open but he is a tough competitor.
I love this photo of him tossing his shirt into the crowd. Not sure I'd fit into something that can fit his frame, but wouldn't it be cool to have?

If you'd like to find out more about Del Potro you can link here. For more information about this year's US Open you can visit the tournament's official website,
