Unhappy Nalbandian won't go :(

It's official now:
01/04/04

David Nalbandian won’t say present
ESPN
http://espndeportes.espn.go.com/story?id=222779
BUENOS AIRES (AAT) – Gustavo Luza, DC’s captain, informed that the player David Nalbandian won’t be able to be part of the team that will go to Minsk to play for the 2004 QF against Belarus, because he hasn’t recovered from his ankle injury.

Nalbandian was in Buenos Aires today, he didn’t train and was tested in the CeNard by the DC medical team of the AAT headed by Dr. Javier Maquirriain. The diagnosis was: syndrome of friction on the back of the right ankle. He has a board (don’t know the actual word for it) to immobilize that part.

Re: Nalbandian won't go :(

I know! Calleri will replace him for the single, and now Luza's choosing a partner for Arnold. I see this hard for Argentina to win the QF.

Re: Nalbandian won't go :(

its such bad timing and couldnt happen at a worse time, but i would hope Calleri and the team are motivated now and want to prove they can get through 1/4 without Naldo, dont be too dispondent, i fancy it will be close but argentina will take the final rubber.

Re: Nalbandian won't go :(

Here is another article from a Cordoban newspaper. Their web-site is www.intervoz.com Sorry for my bad translation - just getting so depressed about all this bad news - when will it ever get better?

Yesterday, just two days before taking the plane to Bielorrusia, where the national team will play in the quarter finals of the Davis Cup, the player was removed from the team by the captain, Gustavo Luza. Nalbandian, injured his ankle in February against Morocco, and was given a medical check-up by the Davis Cup Team medical body of the Argentina Tenn Federation, headed by Javier Maquirriain. The diagnosis of his injury is a syndrome of later friction of the right ankle, and has forced him to be out of the game for the past two months.

David's brother Javier, who is a member of his Team, says that it is the last part of the recovery. He says the ligament and bone and cured and only the joint is left inflamed. They need to wait another 10 days for this recovery to be complete. "The recovery of such an injury as this takes two to six months, and David was cured in the minimum term", added Javier. According to a member of the Argentine Federation's Medical team, the injury has become complicated by an inflammation of the joint that gives a different pain to the original one that was caused by the initial tendinitis. The recommendation is clear, - to do one week or 10 days rest and rehabilitation.

Having retired from Indian Wells and Miami, David had returned to training but the injury became inflamed again and did not finish recovering

Re: Nalbandian won't go :(

It will get better eventually, all he needs is to recover fully and that none of his fans get down on themselves because he is not playing at the moment.

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 won't go :(

I think they're talking about Cañas or Chela for the replacement. I hope Cañas can make it, what do you say?

Re: Nalbandian won't go :(

I can't understand how Monaco replaces Nalbandian instead of Chela ...
I Think Monaco hasn't ever played on indoors carpet ... and Chela is playing well and has more experience, also he plays doubles well....
can someone explain me why Luza never calls Chela for the davis cup? problems between them????

Re: Nalbandian won't go :(

He called Chela and he turned it down due to some family issues. Cañas has a knee injury, so Luza decided to choose Monaco, and I like it

Re: Nalbandian won't go :(

As for Monaco, I don't think he will play any matches, it looks like Calleri is going to be the main man in this tie. I think he seems to be the kind of guy to lift to another level when he is playing DC, I will never forget this demolition job on Ferrero, hopefully he can do that in Belarus, at least he won't have the wind troubling him.

Gaudio will never play DC again, and Zabaleta has a bit of heat with Luza and the other two would have been better alternatives, good for Monaco.

At least David won't have to worry about hard surfaces for a while, and I think it might be some time before he comes back, I bet he won't play in Monte Carlo. I want him to of course, but I am doubtful.

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".
