On to gay Paris....

Up next, the French clay at RG. Can he defend his semifinal points-all 450 of 'em?

Talk to the hand because the ears don't hear you.

No. If he loses against players like Santoro and Soderlingh (with all respect) how on earth can he make it to the semis in Paris this year?

Re: On to gay Paris....

I don't know...but actually I have to disagree with you Connie.

David is full of surprises..he can loose today with Soderling...but I think he can perfectly defeat any top player tomorow. That's David, when you think he can do it...he is defeated ,when you think he has no chance at all...he surprises all of us, and wins.

So I think it's very possible that has a good tournament in France. I don't want to put the target to high...but it can happen.

I agree Clau, besides, it's best of 5 and he usually takes advantage of that...

Re: On to gay Paris....

You know Jazz...I haven't lost my faith on him yet.

I am mad right now..I do.
But David is still my number one...I do believe he is capable to do big things.

Re: On to gay Paris....

Nalbo usually saves his best tennis for grand slams, where the best of 5 sets format suits him. However in the form he's currently in, i'm not optimistic of his chances.
Maybe he should hire a sports psychologist to make him mentally stronger?
If he can just become mentally stronger, he'll be top5 and winning big tournaments on a regular basis.

Thanks. I'm just so frustrated as a nalbo fan. Something is missing from his game, and from the match i saw today it just seems to be his mentality. From today's match he drifted in and out of the match too much and played his best tennis when soderling was serving for the match when it was too late.

Re: On to gay Paris....

I don´t know - I doubt he will defend the semi final points - but - hey - who cares - he is young - he has plenty more years ahead of him. Look at Safin and Ferrero - both of them have had bad years and still play well. Let´s just wait and see. If he loses in the firtst rond I won´t care so much as long as he and the people with him are happy.

Re: On to gay Paris....

Let's not forget that after RG he doesn't have many points to defend, he didn't play the grass season last year, and many US tournaments. To tell you the truth, I'm looking forward to RG to see how Nadal, Coria and Gaudio do there, not so much because of David. I'm also looking forward to Wimby and the hardcourt season to see how David does there

Sounds like a pretty typical Nalbandian match. Has he been serving like crap again?

Re: On to gay Paris....

Is there any chance Nalbo will play the World Team Cup event next week? I know that this is unrelated to this French Open thread, but I doubt that both Coria and Gaudio will play next week in Dusseldorf if they go far in Hamburg.
Nalbo could be short of matches going into RG, and 3 guaranteed singles matches could be just what he needs to build up his fragile confidence.
