Juan Martin del Potro survived his ride on the NYC media merry-go-round yesterday and arrived to a hero's welcome in Ezeiza, Argentina by throngs of well-wishers.
A decidedly older crowd (at least by the first pic) was gathered to greet Kim Clijsters as she arrived at Brussels Airport. She took time out to sign some autographs and thanked everyone via Twitter:
Arrived back home this morning, after three months! Its good to be home again! Thanks to all the fans for the welcome at the airport x
Ah, nice to be a champion.
UPDATE: See more pics of both arrivals here!
