So far only one encounter between this two: in 2006 on clay in Estoril 7-5 7-5 for David. Last year finalist Nicolas is playing very good this year too. He has 42 aces in 2 matches so far. Deadly on first serve, great on volleys. On the other hand he is playing against one of the best 2nd serve returners, who defeated Troicki in R2 in straights.

I think that Nalbandian is quite underrated on grass. Today's match showed that his flat forhend and backhand and ability to create angles out of no pace balls , could be very , very effective weapon.
Of course, he will be more dangerous on a slower grass (like Wimbledon is) and only if he starts to serve as he had served last autumn in Madrid and Paris.

On the other hand, Mahut got out of jail in the first round with some quite good volleying against feliciano.

Interesting match up this is indeed.

I think Nalbandian will get this one.

If you are right, than Nalby in Rafa's draw in Wimby = end for Rafa. But then again Nalby rarely does what he is expected to... you were right for this Mahut match thought

Nalbandian!!!

like i said : nalby in 2

He is better from back injury and he loves grass...
