Re: Will David Nalbandian ever win a Grand Slam?

I love Dave's game, he's one of my favorites to watch. He's such a great ball striker and can beat anyone when he's on. But I'm not sure he can ever put it completely together to win seven best of five set matches. So, it's possible but very unlikely.

A fair and objective voice amidst the chaos of MTF.

If he avoids injury, he has a shot.

david would prolly have to beat some combination of federer, nadal, joker/fixer. tough stuff.

cmon dave. prove them all wrong.

Re: Will David Nalbandian ever win a Grand Slam?

If he will it will almost certanly be Australian open, but I also give him a minor chanse to win the Roland Garros.

He will go down as the most talented player to not win a grand slam if he doesnt and that would be a shame.

Funny and mean, all at the same time.

Personally, I'd love to see it happen, although I'm tempted to be driven by hope and blind optimism, rather than tangible facts, because I like the guy so much.

Nalby has tons of talent, but has lacked the *****-out burn up of effort needed to put two amazing weeks together to win a major. He could, provided he were ready to really dial in and fight for it. Whether he will is the question.

No, it's too difficult for anyone outside of the top 3 to win one at the moment.
