Hi guys, are you sure Nalbandian is out ? Because, a brazilian site said he went to Monte Carlo yesterday http://www2.uol.com.br/tenisbrasil/diaadia/ult138u22898.htm

Nalbandian desiste de jogar em Dusseldorf

09/04/2005 às 12h00
Dusseldorf (Alemanha) - O argentino David Nalbandian desistiu nesta sexta-feira de disputar a Copa do Mundo por equipes, realizada anualmente em Dusseldorf, na Alemanha. O oitavo do ranking, que confirmara presença na competição há três semanas, mudou de idéia e disse que o torneio pode comprometer seu desempenho em Roland Garros.

O capitão Alberto Mancini não definiu o substituto do argentino, mas reiterou nesta sexta que Gastón Gaudio e Guillermo Coria, finalistas no ano passado em Roland Garros, estão garantidos. Os sul-americanos foram campeões do Mundial por duas vezes, em 1980 (com Guillermo Vilas, José Luis Clerc e Carlos Gattiker) e em 2002 (com Guillermo Cañas, José Acasuso e a dupla Gastón Etlis e Lucas Arnold).

Recuperado de um problema no fígado, Nalbandian embarcou na sexta para Monte Carlo, onde disputa o primeiro Masters Series do ano no saibro. Em 2004, o tenista parou nas quartas diante do compatriota Coria, que acabaria com o título.

Yeah I feel very sorry for them both. I've travelled to tournaments before in a different continent and missed seeing the players I most wanted to see. It's pretty disappointing.... but I'm sure they'll still have a lot of fun though, there's still some great players in the draw.

Hopefully it's just a precautionary withdrawal because of a small injury... no sense risking anything with his recent history of injury problems. I can't believe it can be too serious.... :eek:

Do not worry about me - I came here knowing this would happen and I actually could not give a s***. I have felt like this for a while now, - I need a break from spending my life thinking about tennis and specifically about David; I will spend the weekend with my girlfriends, go home on Monday, go back to work and forget about everything for a while. I came here to prove something to myself - as you know I haven't been here for a while - I can't live my life stressing about this kind of thing anymore - I have much more important ortant things to think about. I don't know when or if I will be back here - I somewhat doubt it for lots of reasons - but don' t worry about me, - I"ll be fine.

Take care of yourselves.

I don't know about you, but I think he withdrew way back after he lost to Ferrer. Just my guess, for what it's worth. But, if that's the truth, then why did the papers report that he was going to MC? Is he in MC for real?

Oh Rosie I'm sorry to read your post. :hug:

It's definitely not worth stressing out over this stuff too much. Life should be fun, if you can't enjoy following tennis/your faves then it's a good idea to take a step back from it all.... for awhile at least.

I just want to say - I think you're one of the nicest and most interesting posters on MTF. I always miss your contributions.... and your occasional good reps :lol: .... but the most important thing is you take care of yourself and start to feel better about everything.

or may be kidnapped? :tape:

ok, it's useless of guessing his reason for this withdrawl now. Maybe even not the injury or health problem, coz if it's a normal injury, the news would be more official, and not that mystic. I thought I would get some sense about this withdrawl after i came back from study today, but now seems i was wrong :lol: I never thought David was good at hide-and-seek......=_=|||
still thanks for Jazz and all others' efforts for searching the "mystery news"


And @Rosie, i believe you can get through this period. Maybe you should make some important choice, whatever you will do, just trust yourself, and remember your friends here will always support you and wait for you. :hug:
will be some pity you can't appreciate MC, but maybe you can meet Peggy for sometime. Still would like to see you post here :wavey:

I've listened to our usual Sunday sport reviews, and no mention of David's withdrawal from MC. That's weird because they usually announce who's out just before tournaments begin. That's what makes me wonder for how long he had made his decision. Maybe it is much older than we think...

gooner88
04-10-2005, 09:55 PM
I've just come up with what is a silly theory, but i'm just trying to be positive. He made the QF in Monte-carlo last year and doesn't have alot of points to defend there anyway. I think he's aiming to play at his best in Rome and Hamburg ahead of the French Open, particularly in Hamburg where he could gain alot of points.
With his already fragile body, playing 4 tournaments ahead of the French wouldn't be wise unless he's fully fit.

I tend to agree with you gooner. I think this has to be part of his own plan and that is why nobody is bothering to report his absence. It will be a relief to get confirmation though it's nothing serious. I'm really looking forward to seeing David do battle on the clay courts.
