Argentine Champion Looks Awesome in Argyle














Newly minted tennis superstar, Juan Martin del Potro is wearing his US Open victory well. The argyle sweater kind of works for him too.

I happen to love Argyle, and the popular pattern of diagonal diamonds - apparently derived from a Scottish tartan - has a long, strong association with golf. So when I saw the swashbuckling young star chatting with Charlie Rose last night in his blue and gray Argyle, I naturally wondered if the athletic Argentine was a golfer. After all, his countryman, Angel Cabrera is the reigning Masters Champion and one of the best golfers in the world.

Ultimately, my exahustive research quick Google search produced no evidence of golf in Mr. del Potro's past... or present... but that's not to say he doesn't play and such evidence may emerge. And that would be great because it seems Juan Martin del Potro... with his good looks, charming personality and killer tennis game... is well on his way to becoming a household name.
