Thanks for your fine years hovering in and out of the top 10. I don't expect to ever see you there again. I don't think I'll miss you.

Respectfully,

For a player that do not possess any huge weapon and be able to be in the top 10 (even in and out) and consistently beat Federer and others in the top and on every surface, is quite remarkable.

Consistently beat Federer?He has gotten his butt kicked recently by Fed.

I actually like Nalby. I also think he will still be a threat to the top players this year and possibly 2008.

When I saw "Dear David Nalbandian" I thought it would say "please stop eating donuts" or something like that. :-)

Uhhh....his backhand is not a huge weapon?

Nalbandian is a great player who has serious commitment problems.He seems to be more interested in racing cars than playing tennis tournaments!Which not major tournies does he play?Estoril,Buenos Aires,Basel Vienna and Chennai?:rolleyes:

Agreed. Nalbandian is a great player with serious weapons (one of the top two-handers in the game, and a great return of serve). But he plays less tournaments than Federer. He's got the game, just not the ranking points that come from playing the tourneys.

I like Nalby, he´s definetely one of my favorite players, but I´m afraid he´s on his way out of the top 10.
This happens because the new younger players coming in becomes stronger and stronger, with even more power, and bigger weapons.

But let´s see, he might get a good streak again,hopefully

The problem lately is that his results aren't good at the tourneys that he is playing.

too little playing time does that to you.

Anyone who smashes a racquet in frustration is ok in my book. I hope Nalbandian gets back in rhythm. He is a very good player.

Dear David Nalbandian,
To put this nicely; I really really really dislike you and i would very much appreciate it if you went on an eternal hiatus from tennis.

Your Sincerly,
DS

yeah, i can mostly agree with every one of you (fatty, inconsistent, more interested in rally racing). but u also forget, besides his bh and return of serve, that he is an on-court smart player.

He doesn't deserve his top 10 ranking. He is a world number 10 who doesn't like to participate in tournaments.

I think he's ****ed because he doesn't like losing and is not willing to dedicate his time to get any better/improve.

I admire Nalbandian. He's so talented that, even poorly trained, overweighted and thinking "I'd rather be running a racing car, fishing, diving, anything but playing against this robot", he's managed to kick Federer's ***** no less than 6 times. I loved the way he crushed him at the 2005 Masters Cup.

Since when did 6-7, 6-7, 6-2, 6-1, 7-6 amount to a crushing? They were at it for more than 4 hours. Get real. Nalbandian is an amazing player, but that statement is just wrong.

To say that Nalbandian doesn't have any weapons is ridiculous.

His backhand and forehand are both really solid and have sound technique...his backhand being a tad bit more powerful and used in flashier manner than the forehand. If I were to teach some beginner how to hit solid and reliable groundstrokes, I'd refer to Bandy as a perfect example. I will say that his backhand is one of the finest in the world currently. This guy can also play well on any surface, and he hits some of the best drop volleys when he comes to the net.

I second that.

Oh, I also just want to say that David may not be the fastest or strongest player, but his court awareness and understanding of the game has allowed him to transcend his physical limitations. He has truely mastered the mental side of the game -despite his lack of dedication. I truely like watching him play. DON"T QUITE DAVID! SIGUE ASI!
