I really hope dave'll win, but it is hard to be sure about it... I believe dave isn't playing as well as he played last year, something must be going on... although he did show some great tennis against mathieu I don't feel so comfortable watching his matches as I did before...
First, as it was said, if you want to be comfortable, don't chose Nalbandian
Second, and this is off topic, but to answer you, after his injury in RG, when he was coming back he got a virus in Canada that left him with sequels for almost the rest of the season (the first test that came ok was the one before the DC final) with lose of strengh, sudden dizziness and stomach problems (cramps). He had to keep playing (because, of course, he didn't play enough
) to reach the minimun for MC. Playing like that he got injured on his knee in Vienna (during his first match). So, letting aside the first thing, he played with his knee injured, during the indoor season, the MC and the DC final. He didn't stop because there was not time for a proper pre-season, so he used the exhibitions as trainning (with plans for the pre-season after AO 2007) and trying to rest his knee the major time possible. He went to Chennai and the surface simply killed him. His knee got worst and he almost didn't play AO. AFter that, he got medical orders to not even train. The pre-season had to be delayed and at Bs As, Dave had the brillant idea of playing during the pre-season because the argie crow. He barely ended the trainning before IW. The tennis part will start in Miami with Costas.
So basically, that was Nalbandian's second half of 2006 and beggining of 2007and he's not okay still. Way better, but not 100% okay... .Not that he needs these to make things complicated. A lot of this is not very known because, except if he's asked about it or something very obvious (like in AO 2007) he doesn't say he's injured.
Let's keep with the topic now
