You can understand Juan Martin del Potro would prefer spending his 30th birthday with his besties, rather than hanging out at the Laver Cup.
And so he did, with many of the Tandil pals who travelled to New York earlier this month to cheer on his every move as he reached the final.
(We do wonder if he knows any women, though).
It’s worth noting that the only currently active Grand Slam champion who is now younger than 30 is del Potro’s friend Marin Cilic. And Cilic’s 30th birthday is Friday.
In other words, the kids have time.
