I'll start:
Sofia Zamolo's interview:
"We lived a beautiful story together and we kept it secret to save
it. I don't regret having denied something that was true because I
did it to fight for our love".
-When did you fall in love with David Nalbandian?
- I met him in January of 2003, because we were gonna make a photo
shoot for a car. Later we met in an event, we started sending e-mails
and talking over the phone. But that was it.

-He had a girlfriend in Cordoba when he met you?
-Yes, I think in April or June he broke up with her. And in July I
remember that he came back from a trip and then we started going out,
but as friends. We discovered that we had a lot in common and the
first week of July we were together.

-What did you like about him?
-He was very peaceful. I was having a very busy life because of my
job and he made me at ease. Besides, he's a lot of fun. I liked since
the beginning the way he thinks. We're both very passionate and
enjoyed every minuted we shared together.

-Who suggested to keep the relationship as a secret?
-Both of us. I don't remember if it was him the one that decided it.

-Why did you do it?
-We didn't want to hurt our ex's. Both of us had just broke up of
long relationships and since we were the ones that ended it, we
decided to keep it quiet so we wouldn't hurt them. On the other hand,
it was the first time I was with someone famous and I was scared of
people starting rumors. David travels a lot, they could say anything
about me...and to save the relation we thought it was for the best.

-Did you live together?
-No, although kind of. He traveled a lot but when he was here I went
to his place. There wasn't one single night when he was in Buenos
Aires that we didn't spend it together. But I don't like to invade.
At his place I only had shampoo and conditioner, that's the important.

-Nalbandian came to your place?
-Yes, all the time. My mom's husband, Charly, made asados for him and
he had a great relationship with my brother Diego, they would go
together to test cars. He always had a great relaionship with my
entire family, they recieved him with open arms. He met my sister
Andy, that's living in another country too.

-Did you travel a lot together?
-Yes. A month after we started dating we went to the USA. In August
he played in the US Open and I was with him. We spent a week in Long
Island and then we went to New York, the Open was amazing. We went
out for 10 days in July in Buenos Aires and he left for a month, then
we met again.

-Did you consider his girlfriend by then or you were just knowing
each other better?
-No, I never date someone just because. My relationships are serious.
That's it.

What other places did you go together?
-We were in Barcelona, we had some great vacations at Playa del
Carmen. I went with him to Dubai in the beginning of March too. We
were ten days there and then we went to another tournament, Indian
Wells, where he couldn't play because he was injured. And in the
middle of this we also went to Cordoba. In September we went to a
field and we rode horses and drank mate. Then I was in Unquillo,
where David is from, and there I met his father and his friends. It
was when we had that car accident and was everywhere. We were in the
car, we were coming back from having an asado and we were going from
Unquillo to Rio Ceballos when we crashed when we reached the so
called "Curva del Peligro".The door at my side was destroied and I
hit my head really hard. But to hide it we said that my name was
Sofia Cordova, that's my best friend's name. It wasn't that I had
something to hide. I kept a normal relationship, I'm a common and
healthy person. All I did was to fall in love with a guy that was
very popular, but to me he was just "my David", "my baby", like I
called him. We were so well that way, that we didn't want anyone to
find out.

-And why do you tell this now?
-To clear things up, because when you shut things up the doubt is
always there. I felt it was the moment because I broke up, and
everything's ok. I still love David very much. We keep talking on the
phone, we even had a coffee after it was over. None of us want bad
things for the other. We're still friends, we met pretty often cause
we train at the same place. We called for the Friendship Day. I wish
him all the best, I hope he takes care of himself in his life. We
shared very important things and we have a good feeling for each
other.

-Do you mind finding out that David has a new girlfriend..?
No, because if he's happy, I'm happy. My relationship we David ended,
it's over. I love him a lot as a person and I keep the best memory of
him.

-When did you break up?
-By the end of March

-Did you have a fight or was it in good terms?
-It was in good terms. I think I was the one who ended it. I don't
think he agreed with it at the beginning. But he accepted it fine.

-Why is it over?
-Both of us traveled a lot, we were apart for too long.

-The distance was an obstacle?
-No, not an obstacle cause I learned to be fine with it , I learned
to miss him. I fought a lot. I suffered too much when he was in the
tournaments.

-Was it hard to keep it a secret?
Well...is very hard when you're in love not to scream "I'm in love,
I'm happy". When I was asked, I think people could tell because of my
eyes.

Was the relationship romantic?
-It was fun and very special. We were both very passionate. We are
like that in everything we do. There was one night in Playa del
carmen when he talked to someone in the hotel and organized
everything to set a table in the sand. He made me a dinner, just for
the two of us in the shore, it was super romantic. Another day we
swam with dolphins. I had a great time with David, we had a lot of
fun.

-What are you like in love?
-I like to protect the person that's beside me. I like the details
and I pay a lot of attention when I fall in love. I was like that
with him; if he won a match I would call him as soon as it was over
to congratulate him

-And when he lost?
- It was tough, he's kind of hard when he losses, he doesn't show
any weekness. But I tried to cheer him the same.

-Did you miss him after it was over?
Yes, I broke up with him and like always happens in these cases you
have to get used to missing him, not to be with him anymore.

If she's broken up with him, then why does she keep mentioning his name?

And so much for discretion. If she's the "good girl" that she's making herself out to be, then this too should have been kept quiet. But, as we've observed, she's really good at stirring the pot of dissension.

True. I've always wondered why David, for the short time he did it, had a more successful modeling career than she-and that is her line of work. I've never understood it.

But, then again, I can.

I have been a fan of David for about 3 years now, but I never knew much about his private life until recently and until I reading through his forum here but judging from your reactions, we don't like Sofia right? :lol:

Reading between the lines, she wants him back. "I still love David" makes it clear she still has feelings for him, but just in general they way she talks about him - she misses him. Is she famous? Or did being associated with David make her famous?

Raquel, it's so weird not to see Rogi in your avatar. I had to do a double take

I never ever knew anything about David's private life either, until 20 minutes ago,,, those pictures are gorgeous! Both of them, they look gorgeous together. Did she release the pictures or are they paparazzi photos?

Nwando, I am dropping Roger for David - well until Roger starts doing some sexy photo shoots like David :hearts: Still love my little ninja though :worship: and I know you still do too!

The second picture along in the first row, David looks gorgeous. Some of them do look like private pics. If she has released these private pics to the press, then she is looking like a sell-out.

This is actually the second lot of private pics that Sofia has released to the Presss since she and David split. Yes she is pretty (no denying that), but most David fans rally hate her, because she has sold out to the Press and talked about their private life which is something David hates because he has always made a huge effort to keep the personal side of his life totally private. And seems like he has pretty much succeeded until now. When he split with Vicky last year she never breathed a word about their relationship to the Press, even though they were together 3 years and she was with him at the Wimbledon Final and various other high points in his career - we all wish Sofia had as much dignity as Vicky did.

Omg Raquel, physically, Roger just doesnt do it for me the way he used to. I really like David's look, and yeah, I agree, the second pic is soooo adorable! He looks like a little boy!

I love his nose, maybe 'cause I have a peculiar nose too--I like people with funny noses, lol. And David has such nice upper torso as well, which is my favorite part of a man, and that's also what Gonzo has, even though he is hairy, I know, I swear, I must be the only person in love with his looks as well.

Roger's improving with age :) but yeah I know what you mean about David. I think it's safe to say we all like his look here! I know David's been carrying some extra weight, but I still prefer that to someone like Guille.

Roger is bulking up an itty witty bitty bit, lol. Look at his arm, lol! Farmers tan! Well, I never noticed Rogi's body, I just always liked his hair and his nose! And when I become a dentist, I will invite him for teeth work for free :tape:

well, about Sofia, all I have to say is I never knew anything about about David's love life. Now I know everything. David must be proud Sofi, you're a true friend

Sofia is a known model in Argentina. According to the gossips shows here, she sent the pics to the press cause he broke up with her, so she got mad. And now David is furious with her, which is understandable.

Frankly, if i never know what she did, i could like her. Sofia looks sweet, i admit i don't hate her much. ;) But as Boven said, it's better to keep those photos to herself, she SHOULD consider for David, especially at such a crucial time Olympics. They can be precious memories if cherished, but now she ruined all these. Women are emotional animals, you would never know what they could do for love. ;)
i think it could be a lesson to David. He should be careful to those photos he has taken with his girls, if he wants to keep his life private. should know there's always be a wall split into the "news"
Now, Jazz, he is furious and mad with her, has he said sth about these gossips and photos in public, or just keep silent?

Would you say anything if asked?

If he denied that anything took place, he'd look like the biggest fool.
If he admitted it, then it begs a whole 'nother set of questions, which will serve to make the situation much worse than what it is.

In any case, it was best that David kept his mouth shut.

While I understand your position, I don't believe that she's a sweet person. Furthermore, I don't feel sorry for her. She brought this whole mess on herself, and it is exacting a heavy price on her-as evidenced in that article.

Her attempts to sound coy and demure are stall tactics to keep her current beau from investigating her background and character any further. And I don't think that "emotion" played any part in her revealing her personal trash out in public; it's an attempt to salvage a foundering career and get some needed cash in the process. If money weren't a consideration, do you think that she would even bother?

I think it was an 'interesting' choice of this girl to tell everything the media. I got the impression she is a bit silly because she tells they tried to keep the relationship in secret but now she tells everything, every special moment, every romantic detail... i don't understand the poit of doing so. She would have done smarter if she hadn't told anything... she is one of the persons who somehow tell everything when they don't tell anything.
I just wonder what dwvid thinks about this interview. the girl shared their intimacy with the whole wide world...

I am sure that he is aware of what was written and is mad as hell about it. At the mo, he is at the Olympics, and probably has little emotional energy to waste on her pettiness.

If I were him, I would sue her for invasion of privacy or get an order of protection against her. Her antics just may well cost him more than his dignity. If she's the "fatal attraction" type that I make her out to be, it could cost him his life.

Exactly Sigma..But i don't see she stoping soon!
It's the perfect way to be in the media all the time..to play the "i miss him so much!" ex-girlfriend.

If she really has a new boyfriend,like she said, then why the hell she can't let David go.
If their relationship is past..then she should leave it in the past...but that wouldn't give her the limelights and the money,that she certainly loves.
She's a very sad person.

You know, the standard logic would go something like this: leave the past in the past, and move on. Unfortunately, she cannot. Maybe she does miss him, but shouldn't those confessions be posted in a personal diary instead of a news publication?

The public does not need to know the blow-by-blow of their relationship. If it is as private and personal as she says it is, why did it get a six-page write-up and photo spread? Where's the privacy in that? Some of the pics (the infamous horse pic included) left nothing at all to the imagination.

In her mind, she stands to gain a lot from this. In the end, though, she ends up looking like a hard-up broad. I tell you, she's sprung, and she doesn't care who knows it.

I agree Sigma - every adult has some "emotional baggage" in their past, and to go into a new relationship worrying about what happened in your partner's past is destructive. Yes - of course - ask enough questions to get his side of the story - then leave it and move on.
