Newly-crowned US Open champ Juan Martin del Potro, who qualified for the Barclays ATP World Tour finals, jumped aboard the NYC media merry-go-round today making many a stop to celebrate his stunning upset over Roger Federer yesterday.
At a media round table, the 20-year old was FINALLY allowed to address his fans (thanks to Sports Illustrated) in Spanish and English after initially being put off by Dick Enberg during the trophy due to time constraints and the presentation of his new Lexus. Delpo was only allowed to say a few words in his native tongue after having to ask again. Tsk, tsks to everyone involved in that unfortunate moment.
Here's the clip in case you missed it:
The Argentine also made a pit stop at the Empire State Building for a quick photo op and was greeted by a few fangirls while leaving the iconic landmark. It seems he's really got his head in the clouds now, eh?
And, you can't be in New York City without visiting the morning shows and taking a seat at a prestigious talk show table:
