Why Is Nalbandian Allergic To Optionals?

Nalbandian is currently #9 (largely thanks to winning Madrid and Paris) and three of the five optionals that he is now sitting on are worth zero points yet he hasn't signed up to play in any significant upcoming optionals like Rotterdam, San Jose, Memphis or Dubai.

How serious is he about building up the match fitness and consistency to one day win a Grand Slam title when he hardly botheres with any optionals at all?

If he played more optionals he could be back in the top 5.

"How serious is he "

Lord only knows what goes through that mans mind. I've always liked him but damn, talk about a tragic waste of talent.

Actually he has signed up for Buenos Aires and Acupulco. So basically the contents of your post is wrong.

I don't think he cares. He leads his life and plays when he wishes. Good for him.

Re: Why Is Nalbandian Allergic To Optionals?

I thought Madrid and Paris would have encouraged him to play more and choose the right tournaments.

Re: Why Is Nalbandian Allergic To Optionals?

He wants to enjoy his life and that means taking up activities that have nothing to do with tennis. Who are we to judge him?

So he doesn't play heaps of MM events, good for him.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Why Is Nalbandian Allergic To Optionals?

Hi doesn't like tennis that much so tennis becomes his entire life. Good for him. He only plays good when he is short on money lol.

I don't like Nadal.

Re: Why Is Nalbandian Allergic To Optionals?

Although he can play on clay superb too, his most successful tournaments have been indoor so it was logical to play in Marseille and Rotterdam IMO (specially after Madrid and Paris titles ) And continue his unbeaten indoor run but he has chosen to play on clay.
