He was out since Indian Wells because of a virus in the liver. He's going to play in the BMW open.
Hope he gets back to his best......solid groundies and tough mental edge.....he seems to have lost a bit of his mental toughness over time, and his shots have lacked sting.
I Think Hes Finished. Shame Really As He Wont Be Able To Justify Hes Success Over Fed.
finished.??? the guys like 22-23.. give him a break
He had some tough times recently with his father passing away and he's just ran into injuries and sickness.
give him some time and he will prove you wrong....
LOL, gugafanatic is the king of sensational overstatments!
Ok Im Gonna Take That Statemant Back.
Nalbandian is 5-6 years younger than Gaudio and Moya, about the same age as Coria and J. Johansson. People forget that he reached the Wimbledon finals as a teenager.
People forget he almost reached the us open final too...match pt vs roddick
Actually id be thousands that Nalbandian would have also beaten ferrero in the final.
easily... he was hot that summmer.. if he finds that again look out....
the best tennis i ever saw him play...... only ruined by line calls....
Yes He Played Very Very Well That Summer And Aslo Inot The Atp Houston Event .. He Was Having Agaasii Fighting For His Life There..
Remember A Bunch Of Lil Ol Texas Flavored Calls Going Totally Against Nalbandian And That Was A Part Of His Loss To Dre Eventually. But Yes He Is A Great Paler And Just Needs To Break Thru In A Big Match Like The One He Lost To Hewitt At Oz Open This Year Or Taht On Semi To Roddick At Us Open 2003. Then He Will Be Way Up There.
He could be the dark horse winner of Roland Garros.
Keep dreaming. Nalbandian is finished, hes results have been lacklustre since hes return and players like Fed seem to have worked him out. I doubt he will make the top 10 this year, and he seems to be really injury prone.
Right now, he is still in the top 10 world rankings after pulling out of last season's American hardcourt season, Grass Court season, and half of his European indoor schedule. He's got no major points to defend until after the French.
DAIHATSU PYZAR HISTORY
Guga your a flaming fool. First you say that Nalbandian is finished then you retract your retarded statement. How you say hes finished again....? Your opinons lack merit keep them to yourself arse.
I only retracted my statemant due to peer pressure. When I said: "Nalbandian is finished", what I really meant was I dont expect him to make some noise in the remainder of the year. It would be very tough for him to win any rds at FO considering hes lack of match practice and with the short preperation time before Wimbledon time he may suffer an early exist on court No 2 (Graveyard court for seeds). Furthermore is he going to make the quarters at the US Open?? unlikely. Therefore it is rationale to assume he will not have a great year and should look forward to 2006.
It seems "Guga" is a lot closer to being finished than Nalbandian.
Well then say hes finished for the year 2005 becuase all of us thought u meant for his carrer.
Not really Guga, is more likely to win RG then Nalbandian win any other slam. Furthermore Guga is getting better physically, hes chronic hip problem seems to have dissapated and he is playing pain free. Guga can challenge the best on both clay and hard-courts if he doesnt suffer any recurrent hip problems.
i disagree, Nalbandian can soon be one of the best in the world again. As much as i would like to see guga win the french again, its not going to happen. Nalbandian has a much better chance at any major.
Kuerten, winning French Open...that would be a stretch. I don't remember him beating anyone in important matches in a really really long time. Nalbandian is basically a better player anyway. He still has to live up to his potential but he should go further now than Kuerten, certainly.
kUERTEN DEF FED INDIAN WELLS STRIGHT SETS 03
kUERTEN DEF FED FO 04
KUERTEN DEF HENMAN STRIGHT SETS MONTREL 04
Just some big wins that come to mind. These victories were during Guga's difficult times with recurrent hip problems. I doubt he played the entire schedule in both years. If Guga can stay fit and play back to back tournaments without pain, then I think he can be back amongst the elite. He has more natural talent then Nalbandian and is a great ambassador to the game. Kuerten is currently playing "pain-free" and hes mobility and match fitness is improving. Remember he made the quarters last yr at FO, and he was injured missing both Hamburg and Rome. Guga will be back!!
That is exactly the problem with Guga; he lost in straight sets early to Martin and Ancic in his last two consecutive clay tournaments, and he is idle this week. Without good claycourt match prep, I don't see him generating as much buzz as Nadal, Gaudio, Coria, et. al. Who knows? maybe some new no-name will win the French. No one ever predicted before the French that Gaudio would get to the finals, muchless win it, especially after the first two sets against Coria.
DUCATI 125 TURISMO
Nalbandian was never the same ever since his Father died. He was very close to his Father. It's too bad. I consider him one of the toughest Argentines on tour.
nalbandian is defitnely not "finished" gugafanatic....he is one of the worlds best and he will be back winning matches soon.
