Your Top 3 Nalbandian Performances of 2005

Supporting Nalbo is like being on a rollercoaster with many ups and downs. Instead of dwelling on the negatives, let's all focus on the positives.
Just choose your Top 3 Nalbo performances with reasons if possible.

1. Davis Cup against Australia
I was only able to see short highlights of the
tie, from all the reports and interviews Nalbo played great for the whole
tie with the win over Hewitt being the highlight to clinch the tie for
Argentina.

2. Nalbo vs Gasquet, Wimbledon 4th Round
Coming after just scraping through against Murray, Nalbo was the
underdog going into this match. But he played such a great match and
showed all his experience. The backhand exchanges were awesome and
all parts of Nalbo game worked beautifully.

3. Nalbo vs Hewitt, Aussie Open QF
Even though Nalbo lost, I was proud of how he fought and showed the
passion after going 2 sets down. Most players would've crumbled under
those circumstances, but Nalbo came back and was so so close to
winning. I still believe Nalbo's year would've been better if he'd won this
one, but credit must go to Hewitt.

1-David in Davis Cup

Yeah not just his match against Hewitt or Argentina. I have to say that when David plays in davis cup he is a totally different player, so strong, almost unbeatable, and he showed some great skills in double, i think he is a really important player for Argentina in Davis Cup.

2- Nalby - Hewitt AO 2005

Well for the same reasons you said, david played a great match but eventually lost, because of a slow start in my opinion but i think he was nervous.

3- Nalby in Munich

I couldn't watch this tournament because there was no TV Coverage, but it's his only title of the season so i guess it's one of his good performance of 2005 :) (he lost only one set in the whole tournament, not bad at all !)

1. against Hewitt in Australia. I think I've never been happier to see him win :)
2. against Pavel in Munich: I didn't see this match, but if he was able to come back in the first set after being down two breaks, I think, and winning it, it deserves to be in the top three performances!
3. AO: I liked the way he beat Coria for the first time, the way he beat Gonzalez in a good match, and the Hewitt one was amazing! Too bad the score wasn't the way it should have been ;)

Yeah agree with everyones thoughts so far.

1. Has to be title he won this year - Munich

2. His winning tie against Hewitt in Davis Cup. Have we seen David more happier??

3. His come back from 2 sets down against Murray in 3rd round of Wimby to win. He definately showed his fighting spirit.
