lmao, Argentina musn't have very many good sportsmen if Nalbandian is sportsman of the year.
He beat an injured world-number-one in a Masters Cup draw so depleted even Puerta got a placement. Probably the entirety of the top twenty with the exception of the dirtballers could have done the same.
Actually, from what you've written in your post, it looks like Argentina is giving 'sportsman of the year' to persons from many sports.
In that case I can see why Nalbandian was given the award, given the other option for tennis has just been banned for doping.
