It's just an exho, not a big deal although we all know that indoor HC is Nalbandian's strongest surface. I wouldn't be surprised if Nole simply let Nalbandian win against him. I doubt Djokovic will take match too seriously.

Btw, just curious, how much money are Nole and Rafa getting for playing this exho?

Big loss for tennis.

Querido, el número uno ha tenido el detalle de olvidarse de sus merecidas vacaciones y cruzar el charco para cumplimentar a un tipo que ni tan siquiera es de su generación el día de su retiro. Yo creo que no es este el sitio ni el lugar para soltar la mongoladita de siempre.

Oye, que ni hace falta que le agradezcais el gesto, pero un poquito de vergüenza y de decencia sí podías mostrar, yo creo. Cansinos.

Yeah, Nole won't but Rafa took this match seriously

Just imagine for a sec, how he would look if he won?! Of course, he lost, he wanted to! That's the purpose of this exho! Let Nalba and his fans enjoy tennis, once more!

Seems like a few Nadal fans forgot that Nadal always plays 100%

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.

There was many moments when Nadal was trying and Nalbandian just schooled him.

I still think if he got fit again, he could take Gasquet's spot in the top 10

If you have an issue with a report/infraction, a user, a moderator or just want to talk, PM me.

I support Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, David Ferrer, Del Potro.

Why? Because I love tennis plain and simple

I didn't see the match but I doubt that Rafa took it seriously. I agree with you that probably both Nole and Rafa are honoring Nalbandian. That's just my opinion though. If Novak def. Naldandian I might change my opinion .

What did you expect, idiots? For Nadal to beat Nalba in the exho match in honor of David? Are you nuts?!

Seriously, stop shitting your pants. Rafa is gonna beat Fed's GS record, dealt with it! But it's still few years to go. Are you gonna scare us with your disproportionate hatred ALL those 3-4 years?!
What does does Federer have to do with anything? The only one around here making bitter excuses is you.

You can allways go with the "Nole tried to tank but he is so good that he won anyway".

On the real ACC'16 Final:

This was the most serious exho match I have seen in a while. No joke.

Moments when Baldy had advantage Rafa would step it up and Baldy would come up with a back hand winner.

In my opinion Nalbandian's backhand alone could keep him in the top 20. Even at his age and fitness

He didn't forget his holidays, he's receiving a shitload of money for this.

And he was welcomed very well in Argentina, trust me.

Sure fitDavid is a complicated opponent in a 3 sets matches, but GS are played in Outdoors and the BO5. So if you are saying that a younger and fitter Nalbandian could upset Nadal in some Master 1000, especially in indoors, I would agree, but that is.
