Hot on U.S. Open champion Rafael Nadal's heels, Juan Martin del Potro shot his own ESPN SportsCenter commercial that is making the rounds this week. It's all in his native Spanish tongue, not surprisingly. (Take that, Dick Enberg.) Watch the clip here: 

Non-Spanish speakers may be at something of a loss as to what's going on, or what's funny, about these 30 seconds of footage, but it's a win-win for The Forehand Artist Known as Delpo and the sport itself.

How do you think this spot compares to that of Nadal? To mix our sports references here, is it on par or even better?

Bon weekend, Spin friends!
