Gabriela and Juan Martin on the pitch
Two legends of Argentine tennis back on the court together. Gabriela Sabatini posted a social photo of herself posing with Juan Martin Del Potro after a training session yesterday. 53-year-old Gaby, still in top form and very active (she recently completed a long bike ride in the Andes, documented via social media with beautiful photos), accompanies JMDP onto the pitch, it’s by no means the first time the two have played together.
We don’t have any other details on their training, but we do know that the giant from Tandil is slowly intensifying his sports and racquet work sessions, with the aim of having a final match at the next edition of the US Open, the only Slam he won in 2009 , by defeating Roger Federer in the final.

The New York major director said she was delighted to assign del Potro a wild card for the peloton if the former champion’s sore knee would allow him one last great runway in the tournament he holds dear.
