From the Twitter page of the 2009 U.S. Open champion:

Estoy feliz de poder decirles: VUELVO A JUGAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sera en el torneo de BANGKOK el lunes que viene. Muchas Gracias por todo !

juan del potro

I have absolutely no clue what that means, but there are a lot of exclamation points in that Tweet and a fresh, new avatar of a shirtless Del Potro toweling off after a workout, so that's gotta be good, right?

It's been 10 years since I failed Spanish in college, so don't trust my translation of this, but I think that says: "I'm happy to say that I'm returning to play!* The tournament will be in Bangkok on Monday. Thank you very much for everything."

* Followed by diecinueve exclamation points

That's great news. Del Potro hasn't played since the Australian Open because of a wrist injury and will need to get a few events under his belt if he wants to get back to the top of the rankings in 2011.

He fell to No. 35 in the world after losing his points from his victory at last year's U.S. Open. Delpo will join Rafael Nadal and Fernando Verdasco in the Thai tournament.
