Nalbandian will go into semis with Roddick!

This was my prediction before the tournament started. I think people a bit forgot on him and how dangerous he is. I don't think he will have a great year, but I think he will do very well on Wimbledon and remind everyone on his presence. He could meet Stepanek, Gasquet and than Thomas Johanson on his way to semi-finals, and all those could be very good matches...

We know "pretty boy" Radek is not a factor for him anymore.

Talk to the hand because the ears don't hear you.

Re: Nalbandian will go into semis with Roddick!

Nalbandian is most probably the biggest under-achiever of the entire tennis world.

I see him at the same level of the game as Hewitt; if not currently superior.
He should have atleast a dozen ATP tour titles, including one or two grand slams.

The fact that he's made $3,814,329 in a total of 3 title wins of his career, is amazing.
And also tells us how many times he's made it deep into a tournament, without winnning it.

I'm not underestimating Thomas - I will be nervous out there on Court 1 tomorrow - but then I am always nervous when David plays

I dont really agree with the term one slam wonder (but if there is a guy who fits this) it has to be thomas

Re: Nalbandian will go into semis with Roddick!

I think Thomas will be very dangerous tomorrow, but it's up to David. I hope he gets to the court as focused as he was against Gasquet...

Re: Nalbandian will go into semis with Roddick!

yes just look at his draw:

Diaz, Jacobo (ESP ) 69 6-1 3-6 7-6(2) 6-4
R64 Hipfl, Markus (AUT ) 83 6-4 6-1 6-4
R32 El Aynaoui, Younes (MAR ) 1 5-7 6-2 6-2 6-4
R16 Voinea, Adrian (ROM ) 0 6-7(10) 6-2 6-0 6-4
Q Bjorkman, Jonas (SWE ) 23 6-0 2-6 6-3 6-4
S Novak, Jiri (CZE ) 8 7-6(5) 6 4-6 6-3 6-4
W Safin, Marat (RUS ) 54 3-6 6-4 6-4 7-6(4)

very weak draw but props to him, he took advantage of it.
