We're still unsure about him playing there, but the draw is out and he has to play Ancic in the first round. Why does he never get a qualifier????

If he is 100% fit to play, I wouldn't be too worried, but knowing that he's not, this draw is a nightmare! This is his part of the draw:
(16) J Novak
X Malisse

A Dupuis
T Haas

K Beck
J Marray

J Blake
(20) T Robredo

(25) D Hrbaty
D Sanchez

M Hilton
A Costa

Qualifier
T Berdych

M Ancic
(4) D Nalbandian

I'm sure he'll give it a go, although I can't see him winning...I said the same thing when he had to play Gasquet in RG, but whatever!

yse but it will be really tough, saw ancic play against Schalken in rosmalen and that serve is really hard.. and wel David had problems with the powerfull serve of Lopez...

One more thing: Ancic def. Andreev in Ordina by 6-3 6-1...

Yeah, saw that result. That's good for Ancic. I hate to be terribly pessimistic, but this is a nightmare draw for him. I know we said that at FO time, and look what happened....well, we hope he can get through....

Playing Ancic on grass, and David has an injury, that is far from ideal. Though if David plays and makes it close, Ancic has problems closing out matches.

Supposedly, Gaudio had the same problem, and look what happened. No one could have predicted THAT result in a million years....

But Ancic won't be winning Wimbledon this year, and at least Gaudio had won tournaments on that surface.

It's not the whole draw that I don't like, it's just the first match, and his physical condition also worries me...Let's wait and see how he does against Massu tomorrow...

yes we just have to wait.. hope he will do better in his next match in the exhibtion, winning is not really necessary-but of course it would be nice:)- but that he can play without pain...

Hi, boven, jazz!! :wavey: really nice to see you again!! and thanks for your information about david's matches. Although he lost, i think it's not a bad sign for his Wimby, at least it seems he really have the preparation for the GS. But.....ah.........i have seen his draw which you have posted, why bad luck again.....it's unfair!!! the bad draw and injury always comes together!! and always at such an important time!!

The 1st round is tough and I am not confident at all :sad: Having seen him play against Lopez yesterday - if he plays like that against Ancic - he will lose - especially if the match goes to 5 sets. Don't think he is physically up to that yet. Personally I don't like Wimbledon anyway - so if he loses early - well he got to the semis in RG and the quarters in Australia - let's just focus on the positive.

True, we have to see the positive things that he makes....
I don´t know what i prefer yet...see him lose in the first round, or just that David came back to Argentina and prepare his body for the USO...I´m little scary about his rib....

Because that would just be too damn easy :mad: (well, not necessarily but...potentially easier)

I'm going to try & stay positive. Wimbledon is miserable for me anyway and if David doesn't play that will be one less good thing. I have a few other players to keep me interested but not many :sad:

hi, misha, at least, don't envy us any more, coz i am in the EXAM hell right now.....and i have been there for half of that month, seems it will also influence my schedule of enjoying the Wimbledon next week. and i want to tell you that"you are not a bad girl, if you are, then we all are, coz i think very few youth aged like us will put studies in the first" :rolleyes:

well I think the wrist is ok, I'm more worried about his ribs....!!!
well, boven, as he always gets serious injuries before some big tournament, first wrist, then ankle, now ribs!! here someones have called him "mummy", coz they could expect him in bandage totally, and have serious injuries all over the body....... :rolleyes:
i think it has not been the bad luck problem or sth. Can't his group give some advice and plans that could protect him and free from those damn injuries? Health is very important to a player, and crucial to his career. But a great player should also know how to protect himself. We can't always make excuses of injury for his missing the GS everytime.

PS. hi, Rosie, nice to see u again, i miss u all so much :wavey: hope all of us can keep positive ;)
