    This is a really fun video to watch. Nalbandians technique just seems flawless. I like watching this video to help with everything in my game. His footwork, racquet preparation and anticipation are incredible. He makes it look so effortless, so flowing, and so professional. Its amazing to see Nalbandian hit angles and shots down the line, by using all of the court.

    :lol: Some of Nalbandian's shots look like they're out but they're not. Painting the line. Amazing stuff from this angle.

    Federer wouldn't mind borrowing that backhand for his duels against Nadal I'm sure.:)

    Nalbandian's backhand is really something else.

    His forehand is so underrated too.

    Bud, what do you reckon these guys NTRP are in the video.

    Tbh looks like the guy in orange is getting beat up by the dude who thinks he's federer with the bandana.

    I'm thinking it looks like good DII or bad DI tennis, possible 4.5 vs 5.0 at a push, probs a 4.5 vs a 4.0 :p I kid I kid but this angle does look a lot like a collage video

    I think Nalbandian's serve is the most elegant and smooth serve out there. I love the ball toss.

    Can't believe he never won a grand slam, still hoping he will, but it seems very unlikely now

    He's lucky to even reach the 4th round of a Slam, let alone winning the whole thing :lol:

    Nalbandian at his best could destroy Djoker, Fed and Nadal irrespective of how well the latter played.

    The problem is that Nalby lacks work ethic and just cannot maintain his top level for long. In terms of wasted talent, Nalby likely is one of the most egregious examples in tennis history..

    I know Troicki has improved significantly but he was made to look like an amteur in that clip. Could be the editing, what was the final score of the match?

    Went 3 sets, definitely the editing.

    Saw Nalbandian playing doubles and he could pass down the backhand side straight down the line off any serve he wanted. Left the guy at the net stranded.

    Came back to see this clip again.

    Nalbandian is deceptively fast...

    I don't know about that. I think it may be a matter of endless injuries.

    Any smart teaching pro would template Nalby's technique for all his beginning juniors. He is textbook clean but he, unfortunately, has the cleanest forkhand in the history of top 10 tennis. Injuries are just a symptom of something deeper...lack of a driving ambition to dominate. He had his chances and all the skills...look at that '07 run in Madrid/Paris. To me, he is even a bigger disappointment than Gulbis. Both are wastes of talent that don't come along very often.
