Sportstar - - CHESS COLUMN - PAUL FEIN

The good news is that Delpo has steadily re­gained the form he had when he won the 2009 US Open with stun­ning wins over Fed­erer and Nadal. The bad news is that Delpo had to with­draw from the Rogers Cup in Au­gust be­cause of the same wrist prob­lems which have plagued him this decade. This gen­tle gi­ant can beat any­one on a given day with his pow­er­ful serve and fore­hand, but lacks the speed to play ef­fec­tive de­fence. The 29­year­old Ar­gen­tine will be up­set early this year.
