Hes lying, hes taking the rest of the year off to eat Mcdonalds. I heard he got a contract with them which specifies that he cant play tennis. Easy decision for Nalby.

Out of luck? If he was in good physical shape, he wouldn't get injured all the time. His injuries are his own fault.

Good to take the rest of the year off. Spend some time on your fitness dude, and come back in January.

Bad news and I hope he recovers well, though it doesn't look very good considering his age, his historical lack of fitness and the nature of the injury.

Sadly, Argentina can say goodbye to the dream of winning Davis Cup this year.

The DC is gone for Argentina, but he should take the rest of the year off and see what he really wants out of tennis, at the same time tennis has never been the only priority for him, it will be interesting to see how he comes back.

Lame joke considering a serious injury of a player.

We have seen in the past the consequences of hip injuries for players.

Hope everything goes well for David and we will see him fully recovered on the court again in the next season.

Motivation certainly has been an issue for him, but still it's unfair to blame his surgery on his personal life.

There are other players with issues as well like Roddick, Baghdatis and even Djokovic (that has poor physical form), who have not had a need for such a surgery.

After the announcement a couple of weeks ago that he wasn't going to have the surgery, I had a feeling that eventually he would require it.
He is my favourite player by long distance and this very saddening news. The outlook doesn't look positive I must say.
Hopefully his recovery goes well and we'll see him unleasing his stunning backhand angles next year.

Hopefully he can make it back and get some way back to his former level (top 20), but I'm as sceptical as others here. You only need to think of the likes of Kuerten, Hewitt etc who have suffered from hip problems/surgeries, and never regained anything like their old level.

Sure, Hewitt hasn't hung up his racquet just yet, but I don't think winning Houston means a great deal. Apart from that, he hasn't really been able to compete with the better players this season. Although some of that might have something to do with the game passing him by a little, also.

Not sure it would be wise for Dave to rush back into matches. He might be ready to start practicing again by September (?), but it might be wise to hit on clay for a while (and look ahead to January next year) rather than hope to come back indoors this season (where the surface is obviously worse on the hip).

one of the really outstanding players on the tour.
He was allways able to beat anyone on any surface.
I will definitly miss him.
I am sad to say but he want be back as good as he was.
grr
I am really sorry for him.

Nalby can beat most players on any surface at his best, so hopefully he returns to top form.Good luck.

Well he will probably be 28 next time he plays and pretty much finished, unlucky for Nalbandian but he didn't seem like he had been putting much work into his fitness after his 2007 indoor season, despite his niggles. I didn't see him winning much anyway.

TennisViewer531
05-12-2009, 01:45 PM
He could still challenge top players at that age (28). However, he's going have a slim chance of winning a GS title...

Good luck with your recovery Nalby, Moya had hip surgery 2-3 weeks ago and he is a few years older than Nalby. Boy most of you are being really negative. I know he has a problem with his fitness but then again don't be so hard on him.

Argentina will find it harder to win the final, but you never know someone else may step up. Monaco is starting to play some great matches.

Oh and sorry for lurking.

According to his spokesman, Bernard Ballero, "the operation was very successful." :worship:

He added that the recovery provided for all athletes who are engaged in this type of operation is about five months, but felt that "the will" of Nalbandian, could decrease it to "three or four months."

Ill quote myself from an earlier post.

From Olé Clarin:


Cuando todos hablan del buen nivel de Juan Martín del Potro y de la final de ayer, el que dio la buena noticia fue el otro tenista top argentino. David Nalbandian, 14° del ranking ATP, afirmó que está en condiciones de volver a empuñar la raqueta. "En diez días vuelva a jugar", declaró en una entrevista con Télam. La idea es ir de a poco, llegar en condiciones al primer Grand Slam del año que viene y ganar la Copa Davis junto con Delpo, con el que las diferencias quedaron en el pasado.

El 13 de mayo pasado David fue operado de la cadera por la rotura del labrum (cartílago que amortigua el movimiento del fmémur). "Fue muy difícil tomar la determinación de operarme porque yo trataba de estirarla todo lo posible, pero sufría cuando jugaba y no podía estar de esa manera, así que tampoco tenía otra opción", explicó. Tres meses de rehabilitación y buenas noticias: "Fui evolucionando tal cual como decía el protocolo, y hasta pienso que mejor, eso es una gran noticia".

Nalbandian tiene en claro que, a pesar de la rápida recuperación, tiene que ir de a poco. "Van a ser 20 minutos por día en la cancha y con ejercicios muy medidos. Tengo que empezar tranquilo con los movimientos exclusivos del tenis", declaró el ex número tres del mundo. Por eso recién el año que viene podrá competir en el máximo nivel y espera que en el Abierto de Australia, que se disputa en enero, pueda volver a los primeros planos.

Los objetivos a largo plazo que se planteó el jugador nacido en Unquillo son siempre pensando en grande. "Volver a estar entre los diez primeros, ganar un Grand Slam y darle la Copa Davis a Argentina, ese es uno de mis sueños" dijo David. Con respecto a la Ensaladera de Plata, fueron de público conocimiento las diferencias con Del Potro, pero Nalbandian aclaró que ya no existen: "Con Juan Martín nos juntamos y hablamos lo que teníamos que hablar, ya está todo bien". Y va por más: "Con él tenemos un gran equipo y ojalá que los dos podamos coincidir en nuestro mejor nivel para poder ganar la Copa Davis". Es el sueño de todos.

Igualmente, aclaró que es muy pronto para sentir ansiedad. Hoy está lejos de los flashes y de los halagos o críticas por su nivel, su vida es más tranquila, según él: ". Voy y vengo por mi provincia, estoy con mis amigos, en mi pueblo y nada de viajes. Apenas una escapada un fin de semana para ir a pescar". Le queda poco, porque, seguramente, Nalbandian va a volver a pegar fuerte en el tenis mundial. Y en cada cancha se volverá a escuchar el ya conocido: "¡Vamo' Daviiiid!"


He said he will start training lightly in 10 days, 20 minutes a day and hopefully be 100% ready for the Australian Open next year.
His main objective is to get back into the Top 10, win the Davis Cup and a Grand Slam.

Hip injuries kill players. Kuertan was a shadow of himself after the hip surgery.

For a player like Nalbnadian who isn't that motivated to begin with, and 27 now(28 on his return), I just can't see him toughing it out.
