Re: Nalbandian withdraws from Auckland

Hope it's precautionary, disappointing for the people in Auckland but any slight niggle before a Slam then this sort of thing is going to happen.

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: Nalbandian withdraws from Auckland

So do you know who will take his place? A lucky loser isn't it?

Re: Nalbandian withdraws from Auckland

Just found this on the net

David Nalbandian has been forced to withdraw from Auckland's Heineken Open.

Nalbandian, who is returning from injury after being ranked as high as three in the world, suffered an abdominal strain while practising for the Heineken and made a late decision to withdraw. His place will be taken by Inigo Cervantes-Huegun.

It's disappointing for the Auckland event with the Argentine considered a big draw card and will require some changes to the draw.

An MRI confirmed the strain and Nalbandian's Australian Open participation is now also in doubt. Oh No!

Re: Nalbandian withdraws from Auckland

the only person who's happy with Nalby's withdrawal is this guy:


Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

Re: Nalbandian withdraws from Auckland

Nalbandian said this after withdrawing:

Quote:
"I am very disappointed not to be able to make my comeback this week at the Heineken Open," he said. I was very much looking forward into playing in Auckland once again.

"I didn't play much tennis for eight months so it is natural to suffer some small injuries. Although I am disappointed at the moment, I remain confident and positive about making a full time come back to the tour soon.

"I thank tournament director Richard Palmer for giving me the wild card and the opportunity to resume my career and I hope to come back next year and play in front of the kiwi crowd."

Re: Nalbandian withdraws from Auckland

Abdominal strains followed other injuries for both Nadal and now Nalbandian. Obviously I really hope he's better for the Australian Open.
