It must be frustrating to him too, because I'm sure he wants to go to Houston and he's expecting to do great at the european season, and maybe he's noticing that he's not doing as well as he thought he would. He must rest, and relax! There's no need to rush to anything, he doesn't need to be in Houston to prove how great he is! He needs to calm down.
Well guys, I'm off to school now, talk to you later! :wavey:

Totally agree with you Jazz. He is 22 years old and has many more opportunities to get to a Masters - perhaps in a nicer place than Houston :devil: He must take it slowly and not rush things and risk injuring himself again. Of course he will be tired playing two matches in one day after such a long break - that is only natural, and the very fact that he is in contention for a Masters' place after the dreadful year that he has had, just proves that David IS a great player and will come back with time and patience. Even if he loses tomorrow he will have gone up at least one place in the Race as far as I can work out, and better times will come.And Bianco - look forward to seeing your photos whenever you get the chance.

"el abierto asiático es de vital importancia para la obtención de puntos, aunque parezca complicado por la cuestión numérica pero no por eso imposible."
"The China Open is very important to get points, although it looks complicated because of the numeric matter, but that doesn't make it impossible"
He also said that after China he will be back in Argentina where he will rest till the Tokyo tournament.

Some other quotes: "I have to win the tournament", said the player after ending a tough day in which he had to play two matches, he needed a session of special physiotherapy(sp?) to recover from the muscular tiredness and he complained about the organization and the way the surfaces are, in which "the ball never bounced the same way".

"Tengo que ganar el torneo", proclamó el jugador horas después de acabar una dura jornada en la que tuvo que disputar dos partidos, necesitó una sesión especial con el fisioterapeuta para recuperarse de la fatiga muscular y se quejó a la organización del mal estado de la pista, en la que "la pelota nunca botaba igual".

ok, it's the interview after VS Lu's match, i mentioned yesterday.

On September 16, 21:30, after winning two matches in one day, the Argentinian, 3rd seed of China Open , David Nalbandian came to the conference hall of Beijing tennis center court. It had been arranged at 20:30, but the conference official explained that David was very tired after playing two 3 sets matches, now is doing doctor’s physical massages. That’s why the conference was delayed for 40 mins. This is understood by all the journalists.

-Today, I watched your match, why aren’t you happy at all after winning?
-I am glad to enter the quarter final, the next player should be excellent. But today’s court has some problems, and I am not satisfied with some decisions of the umpire, even the organization and tournament manager. The others is ok, after all, I won the match. That’s it.

-Do you feel dissatisfied with the spectators today? Some ones are cheer against you, and you even hadn’t left making autograph for the fans after the match.
-I hope you can understand everyone has the pissed time, especially when you are not satisfied with the umpire’s decisions, even the tournament manager. So when leaving the court, I feel angry, so I don’t want to transfer my bad mood to the fans.

-These days, many seeds players are out. What do you think of this? Will you take some lessons from them, and do better?
-Now, it’s more and more difficult to play tennis. As a tennis player, it’s not only the physical requirement, but the mental spirit as well. You should concentrate on every match, every opponent, which is the most important.

-It is said that you are the most complete player in Argentina. But you have few ATP titles, and always out in the semi-final or even quarter final. What do you think of it?
-It is difficult to play with injury. I have some problems of injury recently. Physical and mental factors are both very important.

-You have played two 3 sets match. How will you play the next match with more concentration.
-I have only goal, that is winning the China Open. The weather is terrible, and I am also very tired. But at least I can have good sleeping today night to prepare tomorrow’s match. Winning China Open is the only goal.

-Your emotion is always up and down in the match, which influenced you. What will you do to control your mood? How much important are the mood and physical to winning?
-As a player, it’s very difficult to deal with the mood. It’s true my emotion is often up and down when playing. But I won’t let emotion to disturb me. It’s only one goal on the court, that’s concentrate to cope with the match.

-Do you like to play on the clay?
-A good player should have ability of playing well on every kind of court. It’s quite different to play on the clay and hard court. The speed is different, so is the weight of balls. You should adapt any kind of court, which is necessary to the tennis player. To myself, I play faster on the clay, and flatter shots on the hard court of China Open.

-Many people think it’s a miracle to be the finalist of 2002 wimbledon. What do you think of it? Do you like to play on grass?
-Yes, I like playing on grass very much. It’s a pity I haven’t the chance this year. I suffer the injury, hope can play more grass matches in the next year.


-It’s a tough game playing with LU today. But his ranking is quite lower than yours. How do you evaluate this opponent?
-First, LU is a good player, and he plays well today. I have to concentrate to win the match. Ranking is not everything. It can not stand anything when you are playing. Moya was also lost to a 19-year-old French player, whose ranking is only around 240. This is a typical example. When you are on the court, what you can do is playing your best.

so Asia - South America - Asia again??
The Tokyo tournament will start at October 4, that's two weeks later. He has to adapt the total opposite jetlag, time difference from South America to Asia again in such a short time period, which is not good.
Why not come to Shanghai for a rest to have a cup of tea, familiar with the city for 2005 TMC final and appreciate the Heneiken Open even not play it? i can host him well ;)

I vaguely recognise him from the photos but I don't know his name or anything - I've certainly never seen him practising with David before. I think he's just a friend who decided he wanted a trip to China, and David wanted his company because Javier isn't there :) But don't worry I will find out for you when I see everyone again in Europe :) And as for the Japan thing - stupid - I agree. I was already thinking that David should probably drop out of Vienna because 4 straight weeks is too much for him to play (remember what happened in Hamburg which was his 4th consecutive week of playing?) And now he wants to add an extra week including all the travelling and jet lag :confused:

It definately is!!! Poor David is having so many break points against him that it would be funny if it wasn't so irritating :devil: All the serving practice he has done this week is obviously NOT good enough! In fact he has just been broken again as I write this - so 2-5 down now.

I'm not mad at him - to be honest I never expected him to get this far after all his injury problems and I'm proud of what he has achieved this week. He admits he is tired after playing 2 hard matches yesterday, and, as you say, Jarkko always bothers him. In fact he used to bother Kafelnikov too and I always liked him - so maybe Jarkko just hates me and wants to make me suffer :p

I was being silly and I didn't expect Nalby fans to be mad with him during this tournament and for the record Jarkko is one of the good guys and he wouldn't hate you. :) Speaking of Kafelnikov, it could be Hrbaty or Rosset who used to school him regularly.

My call is a 3 setter here.

Yes I know Jarkko is an OK guy - I was at Monte Carlo this year when he injured his wrist so bady and was talking to him for a while that evening - he's one of the good guys - just don't want him to beat David - and I didn't want him to beat Zhenya either!!

We all noticed that his brother wasn't in Beijing with him which is very unusual, so perhaps there are family problems or maybe illness that David would wish to keep private but would mean he wants to go home as soon as possible. Just a thought.

Go to Tokyo maybe for the sponsor reason, coz Yonex is the Japan brand. i also see Hewitt, who also use Yonex racquet, is in the entry list.

i have finished watching david's match repeat in our tv. To be glad, i should say he play much much better than last match vs LU. far more winners than jarkko's, smart baseline, and quick return. If he can make less forehand and backhand unforced errors in the 1st and 3rd sets, he deserves winning. He is on the way of coming back to the fitness for sure. even today, quite a lot spectators are cheering for him, coz he played really good :) but you know jarkko is also good today, and much fewer errors than david, that's why he won the match.

so please have a good rest in Arg, and back to the court in better state ;)

BTW, this is link of media that he was invited to chat online, which was organised by sohu after match, if you are interested. and i have post related pics in pic part three thread.

Why? He seems like a nice guy! I like him, not a lot, but I like him...

Yes I like him too and he IS a really nice guy - a true gentleman on and off the court. I see what Fedex means though - sometimes you can be almost "too nice" in tennis (like Kim Clijsters for example), and lack the killer instinct. But personally I would rather have a nice person that didn't win than a winner who is a complete b****** :devil:

Quotes from David after yesterday's match:
"No me sentí cansado, él jugó mejor"
"La pista sintética de este torneo es demasiado rápida para mi juego. Además, él tiene un saque increíble. La clave del partido fue cuando me quebró el servicio en el arranque del tercer set"
"I didn't feel tired, he played better"
"This tournament's surface is too fast for my kind of game. Besides, he serves incredibly well. The key of the match was when he broke my service in the start of the third set"

No, David, you were tired.

I think you're right Sigma. It seems like a strange sort of quote from a guy who says grass is one of his favourite surfaces, and most people say grass is the fastest surface of all!

I thought so, too, which is why I :rolleyes: at what he said.

to be off the topic for a second, Safin has beaten Nieminen just now.

yap, now China Open final will be russian's game.

BTW, he did say he was not tired when vs jarkko in the interview. and i watched the repeat of this match, his mental state is really better than the last one vs LU. not sleepy again. To the speed of court, i read JC ferrero said it was not that fast, and from the matches i saw, it's the truth. i've already read Jazz's quotes in our website, think maybe he doesn't mean the speed is fast, could be not regular or sth else, remember he has complained about the court problems already.

I should have had her reported when she called David a "grease monkey". It's really not too late.

And why would I care what crap an Intellectual Chernoybl says again?? ;) :o Let her come in here and say that. I'm still waiting for her to back up 1, just 1, thats all I'm asking, 1 post with some facts. I guess whatever small brain she does have, cant even manufacture that. :o

To defend her damn self. Seeing that she can't, we just ought to leave well enough alone.

Technology is a wonderful thing and they can make hardcourts as fast as grass and super slow, don't forget the wooden boards which was like an ice rink in Minsk.

I agree Jazz. This is a nice place, relatively free from trolls and all the bitchiness and back-biting that seems to go on in other forums and I prefer to keep it that way. We talk about tennis and David (and sometimes how hot he looks :) ) but there's no real bad language or hatred and personally, that's how I would like it to stay. Some people thrive on tangerine-type vitriol and fighting - but I'm too soft and thin-skinned (she told me that once!), and I shy away from fights and ill-feeling so I prefer she stays away and leaves us in peace.
