Can del Potro pull off another comeback?

I was at a party yesterday talking to a tennis-liking/playing friend of mine and as usual, talked turned to the pro game: Federer's resurgence, Djokovic's toughness, etc.

Then we started talking about Juan Martin del Potro and that wrist of his. Tough break after all that work to rise from the 400s to a spot in the top 10, and now another year lost.

You have to wonder if he has another epic comeback in him. In talking with my friend, I noted how young del Potro is. He  mentioned how it's one thing for Nadal to come back because he's so mentally tough, but how will it be for del Potro? 

I think he'll be able to pull it off: depends, though, how much self-belief the Argentine has.
