Vintage Nalbandian - both the good and the bad. Yes Dave choked but so did Nadal and so did Federer and pretty much every other guy in the draw at some point - they are human.
But great to see Dave striking that ball the way few can do, running Nadal around like a puppet on a string and looking FIT and strong. Hope this tournament puts to rest the donut Dave cracks - this was Dave's 3rd tough match in a row and physically he hung in with Nadal the entire time.
I felt sorry for both Argentines today. One because of his whinning and pathetic play with little effort and the other because he fought his heart out and came up short. And who would ever have guessed Nalbandian was the latter.
and congrats Nadal.
