    Hes probably only about 10-15lbs over weight. Its just there re not many players who aren't really lean and ripped so he stands out as the tour fatty to everyone on here

    David Nalbandian es muy grande! El come muchas tortas es donuts!

    EXCLUSIVE!!! - Recent photo of Nalbandian relaxing on the beach in Argentina!!!

    Argentina's Coast Guard responded to an emergency call as many locals had mistook the tennis player for a beached whale.

    I'm not sure what he's eating, but there are rumors that are yet to hit the pipeline of major news networks, that Nalbandian is not actually recovering from hip surgery, but in fact he is currently serving a suspension from the ATP who felt he some time at fat camp might do Dave well.

    Ofcourse, the entire story is on a laptop of a girl who is currently on a world-wide cycling tour.

    I'm so happy to see David again practicing with a tennis racquet. Hope he'll get back to his top form soon. This indoor season has been extremely boring without Nalbo. :)

    gee, what happened to him? he was a fit, good looking fellow
    he looks like crap now
    needs a good haircut

    tho', I'd say he's maybe only 15/20lbs overweight, at most

    Yeah, his legs are really fit still. It's just in the gut and up top a little. He carries it well, he's got broad shoulders and he's light on his feet.

    Wonder if the additional weight has caused the hip problem. Guga and Magnus Norman had a similar injury, though, right? Three totally different body types right there. Interesting.

    Big deal, he wears an XL instead of an L. I do see him looking like Lundgren in tem years if he ever starts coaching. Goatee, gut, a trio of chins and a big mane of greasy hair.

    BTW, thanks for posting that video. David's forehand is really perfect. And for a two-handed BH, that's pretty smooth.

    Vamos Daveed!

    The gut allows him to hit harder by putting his weight behind the shot.

    wow, watching him hit and then the other guy, it became obvious what power he has, and what a huge swing and great timing he has.

    incidentally i looked up lucas arnold, the other man in the video. looks like the guy's a veteran who had a testicle removed due to cancer in 2008 and is now back playing. happy for the guy that he got back to doing what he loves.

    That's not exactly rigorous training.. More like hitting the ball around and a few laughs.

    Lucas played the entire year 2009 after his illness, and he's been doing fine.
    I believed he's played couple of doubles tournaments with Nalbandian at the very beginning of 2009. Coincidentally Arnold's doubles ranking is 65 and David's singles probably is 65 too!

    another video of David and Arnold hitting;

    Nalbandian doesn't have the perfect abs, but his upper body strength is scary. You need more than just perfect timing to hit his kind of angles.

    always makes me happy to hear something like that.

    david always strikes me as a guy who could be a quarter step quicker. if he was, he'd be a slam threat. it'll be interesting to see what shape he comes back in in 2010, i can understand that he's taking it relatively easily atm and expect him to step up his training in the off-season. but i can't see him murraying himself*, and that's a shame.
