    Good to see Nalbandian back against Hrbaty!! its on tonight i think and considering the great form he had at the Australian Open before suffering injuries shortly after, it will be interesting to see how he goes.

    he has said he doesnt like the clay but his patient game should suit it.

    any thoughts? GO NALBANDIAN!!

    Well Nalbandian killed him, awesome. I love his game, and he's done pretty well on clay in the past. I expect him to make about quarters here or so.

    Nalbandian has an all-around game; he's not as good on clay because he doesn't hit with as extreme topspin, but he's still fast and consistent and precise and this will get him far. He's just not as much of a dirtballer as some of his compatriots are.

    Well he toughed it out today, I'm telling you, he'll be in the quarters for sure.

    Quite possibly. His game translates well to all surfaces, and his grittiness pays off on clay just as much as anywhere else.
