Yeah, that's right - and strange, at least as far as I'm concerned. Also because for my part, I really like the Copa Argentina.
The first opponent was David (if i remember right) but now Delpo, wich is ok but no
. Anyway RF is the one who only matter.
I think that initially, it was supposed to be David, yeah. No idea why that changed. Anyway - I'm sure you'll enjoy Federer's visit to Argentina.
David was not injured in 2002 in Wimbledon,...
OK he was just too young
however Hewitt was also young?
And in 2003 vs Roddick in US Open and in 2004 vs Gaudio?
those three most close to win a GS situations...
He should win those matches
You can't change what happened in the past. And that's why I don't see any point in lamenting past losses or missed opportunities.
(But just for the record, Hewitt was #1 in the world at the time and had already won a Slam.)
David has to be more strong mentally, more stable...
(he was strong couple of times,- in 2005 and in 2007 for example;
yes it was already 100 years ago...
has to believe himself..and it will help him in other aspects...
then he can beat every one...
Sorry, but did you actually read anything I wrote in my post that you quoted?
It's just that I don't think I can be much clearer than that... Well, I'll try.
You need a functioning body to play tennis.
And that is much more David's problem than anything else.
But if you don't believe me, or David himself, then take a look at other players who had hip surgery.
Lleyton Hewitt, Fernando Gonzalez, Tommy Haas... You think their problem also is that they're not strong enough, mentally?
by the way, does he have a coach at this moment,
who is his trainer? Murray used experience of Ivan Lendl,
may be David also can ask for help of some good coach?
this year is his last chance to do something in tennis...
No, he doesn't have a coach at the moment. He occasionally works with different coaches but he doesn't have a fixed one.
And whether it's his last chance to do something depends on how you define "do something".
I'll be happy enough to see him go on playing for as long as he can and stills wants to.
