    I voted with my wishful thinking brain area. If he stays injury free he will get into the top ten again I'm certain.

    But will he avoid injury and play confidently again is the question? I hope so. On song he is almost an artist with his racquet. Beautiful geometry (also achieved by Federer and Nadal and a few others, but they are less to my taste for some mysterious reason.)

    I'm going to say no because he can't produce quality results on a consistent basis.

    I really think he can if he trains hard and is fit i can see him being a contender again, but has to be running out of time

    thins year he will spend time clawing back next year he will be 29

    Nope.....don't think so. Not sure if he even really wants to play seriously anymore. Hope he does play for a bit longer though

    I agree, he only plays ok for 2 or 3 tournaments maybe and then he plays terrible. At his best he is still a really good player but it rarely comes anymore. I mean anything is possible but I seriously doubt it.

    I would like to see him regain that type of form , Assuming he stays injury free it'll be interesting to see what he does during the clay court season and frenxh open.

    I'm a big fan of David, but he's not going to get back to the top. That hip injury is a career changer. He might perform well in spurts, but he won't be able to compete consistently.

    The dreamer in me says yes...but Nalbandian is a home boy and after so many months off tour , I think his heart is not going to be in the demands of tour tennis. Me thinks the boy is lazy and just won't be able to hack being away from momma's home cooking for long.

    Doesn't seem like Dave's been in love with tennis for a while. It's really a shame because he has so much talent. His ball read off the opponents strike and anticipation is second to none.

    With all the tough players now, the hill is pretty steep for him to re-invent himself and train hard.

    Short answer is no he's not coming back. (but I hope I'm wrong)
