sorry bad news :sad:
la nacion 6/6/04

"I cant even move" said Nalbandian while he was standing close to
his brother Javier, Eduardo Infantino (trainer) and Jorge Trevisan
(physical trainer.)

Nalbandian was checked again yesterday at Suzanne Lenglen. This
situation complicates his immediate future which is his
participation at Halle in Germany.
.
Once he knows the results that he wil have in a few days. It will
be determined if he will go back to Unquillo or will stay in Europe
to participate in Wimbledon.

"I cant even move" said Nalbandian
:eek: :eek: it's so terrible....is that so serious??? i don't want that damn injury appear again, and just before such important Wimby.
ok, he can retire from Halle, but should recover before the next GS. Everyone know what it means if the injury prolongs.
God bless your recovery, david~~ :worship:

Having been in Paris - seen David play - and spoken to a few people - well - I am very, very worried about this :sad: My own view is he won't be ready for Wimbledon - or if he is - the lack of practice will seriously hamper his success there. Sorry to be so pessimistic :sad:

Last sunday I woke up without being able to move my arm, I had a contraction in my back, near my shoulder and it was awful, I got it after playing tennis and it hurt like hell, but after 4 or 5 days it got much better and I don't feel it anymore. Maybe being in the intercostal zone it feels even worse and they're checking it to make sure, but I think he'll be fine for Wimby. I wanna believe that's it and it's nothing serious...

I just heard salatino, a journalist that talked to david and he said that he looked like a Mommy, that everything hurts him, and that he'll decide today if he comes to Argentina or not. If he does, he won't play Wimbledon :(

How could this sort of thing happen to david again???? He was tortured by injuries and missed many tounys this year. I don't want to see another withdrawal.

C'mon, have rest and come back on Wimbledon!

he's practically out of Wimbledon because there's almost no way he
can recover for the 21st. :sad:

It's a muscular problem, but they still don't know how serious it is, they have to wait. Maybe it is not that serious after all, but it doesn't look good at all...

Ok, Gaudio is coming back from Paris and so is all his team and the journalists. David is not on that plane, so I'll take it as he'll spend more time in Paris or he'll even go to London. Salatino said that he was gonna decide what to do today, but we haven't heard anything at all so far. I'll take it as good news...

:sad: I'm so worried about David......I just hope he's ok, and I hope that he will be alright soon..the condition sounds rather serious.
But it does seem like a positive sign that he's not going back home yet, so there is still a little hope left for Wimby!
Get well soon David! :kiss:

Well...if he's staying in Europe that may be a good sign. I so hope he can play Wimbeldon. The tournament will really not be nearly as much fun for me to watch without him in it. :sad: If he does make it to Wimbeldon- I really think that he will go far.

Thank you for your welcome, that raises up my spirits a little...I wouldn't have joined on a happier day, it's NOW David needs support, not when everything is OK, so I wanted to tell you I'm supporting him as well.

Yes - you are right Carlita - it is in the bad times that people need to know they have our love and support. As for the news well I am a natural born pessimist, so I won't be confident til I see David walk out on that court in Wimbledon. My own view is that he won't be fit enough to play, but that he is so desparate not to miss Wimbledon that he wants to delay any announcement for as as long as possible in case he makes an incredible recovery - remember Indian Wells and Miami where he wanted to play and in the end his Team had to stop him?

yixiang
06-08-2004, 09:35 AM
I just wonder how his injury came. He looked quit fit at RG semis, though he lost to gaudio in 3 sets, I don't think it was because of his injury but his lack of confidence in the end.

To withdraw from Halle is not a bad idea. I believe he will make a remarkable comeback in the All England Lawn Club!

Aleta4
06-08-2004, 09:35 AM
I guess the pain around his rib right now so short after the injury is very strong and it is hard to make ANY kind of prediciton. He will probably wait as long as possible as you said Rosie.
If the doctors tell him that at WImby this will still hurt but he can't do any further damage by playing he might decide to use painkillers like Ferrero did at the FO.
I hope he is careful, of course Wimby is important but with the Olympics and the USO so close afterwards it is probably better to let the injury completly heal and not risk anything,

yixiang
06-08-2004, 09:40 AM
Sounds reasonable! Aleta!

If he really withdraws from Wimby, then the only good thing for me is that I won't bother watching tv till midnight. I've done too much midnight TV watching for RG...

06-08-2004, 09:55 AM
BTW since you asked when this injury happened. Remember at 5 all in the fourth set against Guga ? David had just broken back but suddenly he serves two double faults in a row and then he stretched is shoulder/back area awkwardly. I think it happened right before those two double faults in one of the rallies, don't know how exactly but his serve was never the same.

I remember following that match, watching tv and commenting it in the msn with some other fans and someone said that at that moment, but I didn't pay attention to it at all. Apparenty his service speed was down too...He shouldn't have played against Gastón...
And I guess it's true, he shouldn't risk anything with the Olympics and the USO so close...
I'm so tired of these stupid injuries :sad:

bovenbuuf
06-08-2004, 12:27 PM
Yes me too Jazz, we followed the match and it was also something that our commantator told here, that his serve went down from 178 till 136(and lower..but I can understand why he played against Gaudio, it was a big acievement, and its a semi of course you want to play that, look at Coria-in de final- he could practicly stop in the 3 set, after having the cramps, and he probably would have done it if it was not a big tournament, but this is RG, a GS and you want to show your best, and well maybe at that time, David did not feel that much of the pain- before he started-and just wanted to give it a try..and well like Rosie tells, he is sometimes a little bit subborn, not even sure if even his bro and coach could stop David from playing against Gaudio

jazz_girl
06-08-2004, 12:39 PM
If he would had won that match against Gaudio, he wouldn't have been able to play the final anway. He couln't move that day! But how could he know!

Action Jackson
06-08-2004, 01:02 PM
The only way David was not going to play against Gaudio, was if he couldn't walk at all. It's a GS semi final and they will do whatever it takes to play in these huge matches.

Hopefully he can play Wimbledon, but really he needs to think about some serious improving to other parts of the game, and the only positive is that he has hardly any points to defend after the US Open. The health is more important than the ranking.

Jazz, what a piece of terrible news from you :sad: i can't believe it's true....i am always looking forward to his Wimby, and never think the injury could be that serious. i just ask one of my friends who is a medical student, and she said the contracture could be healed by about 10 days or more if it's treated in time. so at that time, i think he still has the chance of wimby, but now maybe it's different for a player, coz he needs more time to recovery to the fit playing. I hope it won't be true. it seems we could go back to that "dark March" this year. :sad: :sad:
