Yeah. First half of the season was actually good for Nalbandian. He had a good run in Indian Wells defeating Tsonga and Tispa and was 2 points away of defeating Nadal. Then he had a close match against Murray in Rome, I think he was a break up in the third. But it went downhill after the Queen's incident. Obviuosly the ATP wanted him to pay and put him tough 1st round opponents in every tournament and then he got injured the last months and missed the DC semi.
I read your post first and then looked at your username. No shock to see an Argentinian flag there.
