Btw, that sports awards ceremony is called Olimpia de Plata (silver olimpia), David won the tennis player of the year award, he was also nominated for sports person of the year but lost to Cecilia Rognoni , member of the national field hockey team that won the world championships at Perth 2002.

Nalbandian - in confident mood (Getty Images)

NALBANDIAN SEEKS SWEET REVENGE
By From Sergio Ferraro, PA International, Buenos Aires

David Nalbandian leading an Argentinian Davis Cup team was something impossible to imagine less than a year ago.

But one Wimbledon final and a string of victories later, it's an unquestionable reality.

The 21-year-old will be the key player in this week's tie against Germany, playing the number one singles slot and the doubles.

"This is the first time I will play a Davis Cup in my country, and the feeling is unmatchable. I'm really happy and waiting for the victory," he told PA International.

Nalbandian only made his Davis Cup debut in Argentina's last fixture - the 2002 semi-finals against Russia in Moscow.

Partnering Lucas Arnold - as he is expected to do against the Germans - he won an epic doubles match against Marat Safin and Yevgeny Kafelnikov, taking the fifth set 19-17.

On the Sunday, however, he lost in the singles against Safin and Russia qualified for the finals where they beat France.

"If we defeat Germany, we may face the Russians in the second round.

"This time it would be in Buenos Aires, and we can't wait for that re-match," he said.

But Nalbandian shouldn't have to wait that long for another re-match: this weekend he is set to face Rainer Schuettler, who beat him in the quarter-finals of last month's Australian Open.

"I was having a great tournament, but I left with the bitter taste of defeat," the Argentine remembers now.

"When I played Schuettler I had muscular pains from my previous match, and I also had bad day."

"That's why, as soon as I lost, I said I would have my revenge in the Davis Cup.

"This time we will play in my home, and on a clay court, where his level goes down. I think I can defeat him this time."

Nalbandian's lone triumph in four clashes with Schuettler came on clay in last year's Tennis Masters Series event at Monte Carlo.

Reaching the quarter-finals in the Australian Open was enough for Nalbandian to claim ninth place in the ATP rankings, become the first Argentine in the top 10 for 13 years and to see him awarded the captaincy.

"Being ninth in the world fills me with pride," he said.

"I do have more responsibilities now, but that doesn't add any pressure for this tie. Here we're a team, and how I am ranked doesn't count.

"We have a great team. All the guys are in great form, and we feel great about playing in front of our people.

"The Davis Cup is something really special, and we don't want to disappoint the people."

As he talks his confidence rises.

"A result? Write there that we win. We win, 4-1."

Exclusive interview (it's in spanish though but it's got new pics included) with David from the River Plate official site.

http://www.carp.org.ar/html/reportaje_nalbandian.php3

In short he talks a little about his gf, his hobbies and how passionate he is about River Plate (best argentinian soccer team).

Does anybody know where his next tournament is? Or where I can find his schedule for the whole year?

My Spanish is poor, but it's well enough that I can navigate a Spanish site is need be.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

I only know where he's playing next week so far, that is the AT & T Cup in Buenos Aires.

Btw, David has parted ways with his coach Gabriel Markus, it is said it was good terms (dunno why he decided to do this now that he's doing so well), he'll be trained by his brother Javier for now.
