The winner of the Masters to be revised today by the doctor of the contest and it is estimated that will not be in the Buenos Aires.

Not officially withdrawn, as of yet.

He´ll see the tournament´s doctor today, and although it´s not official yet, it´s almost sure he won´t play.
Abdominal injury.

On that note, I hope it's nothing terribly serious.

When did he get this injury? Is it a recurring one?? I wonder how long he will be out for. Keep us posted.

Supposedly in the AO. I hope it's not an injury or a complication from the stomach virus he had.

Really from the AO. Doesn't he always get injured around this time? Pity if he is out for a period of time I thought he was peaking in his tennis. Didn't see any Davis Cup on TV - just the Aussies but saw that he won his match. I'll read the Davis Cup thread to see everyon's thoughts on his match.

I'm not a Nalbytard but as long as he can't easily hold his serves, his injury's getting to him. :p

You're not a Nalbytard (doesn't have the same punch as other 'tard groups), but David always had trouble with his serve-injury or not.

From an amateur point of view. It looks like Dave's service action is barring the injury from healing.
And should he continue using the same service action, he could be looking at a muscle tear.

Or worse-throw his back out.

Get well soon Nalbo.
I wouldn't be surprised if he didin't play again until IW.

How sad. So - it's at least two weeks without Nalby playing. Seem a whole lot to me. Hope he recovers really well and finally. We need him playing!!!

I hope so too but playing one clay tourney in Acapulco, then playing on hard courts for a month doesn't make alot of sense IMO. I know the beaches are great there :p , but it make more sense to rest and fully recover for IW and Miami where he gain big points.
Before this injury setback he would've played DC, Buenos Aires and Acapulco. His schedule made more sense that way with 3 tourneys on clay.

The good news is, he won't gain or lose any points. The bad news is, he's injured. He needs to rest, and hopefully that will be adequate enough to ensure full recovery.

The latest...says he's expected to be out for three weeks-just in time for IW.

Thanks Tiff.
I guess this partly explains why he had trouble holding serve throughout his match against Soderling.

Probably. Maybe the rest is a blessing in disguise after all. Personally, I don't see how the claycourt swing will help him get through the upcoming US hardcourt season, but this is me talking.....

I agree. Maybe playing the clay court swing meant that Nalbo could get some 'easier' points for his ranking. There are quality players like Coria, Ferrero and Acasuso playing in these tourneys, but you would've expected Nalbo to at least get to the semis and adding to his ranking total.
Honestly I would've liked to have seen Nalbo play a tourney like Dubai where the field is stronger and it would've been a great preparation for IW and Miami.

For ranking purposes, it wouldn't have mattered. He has so little to defend vs. Roddick and his 175 points (and Ivan the same amount). He could really gain some ground on Roddick (he's behind 100 points).

Some quotes from Nalbo.

"It's very difficult for me not to play this tournament, because this is one of the most beautiful competitions, with the Davis Cup and the grand slams," the world number four said.

About his future, Nalbandian said: "My presence in Indian Wells and Miami will depend on the evolution of my injury.

"If I hadn't stopped now, the injury could have become even worse and made me stop for a long time."

At least it's a pulled muscle and not a torn one. What a relief, I guess! However, I would be interested in knowing what is causing these stomach problems.

It is a relief. He just needs rest and lots of it.
I know it wouldn't be the end of the world, but I hope he doesn't lose his No4 ranking to Ljubicic in the coming weeks. The guy's a machine and he could easily do it.

Or he could put in the practice, not allowing the muscle to fully heal.

My money says that we're looking at a Safin case.

I just want him to take his time, and fully recover. He should only comeback when he feels 100%, no rushing.

Unfortunately, the thing working against Ivan are the points. In the upcoming events, he can gain no ground on David, as he has 175 points to defend-and David has zero.

Based on the doctor's observations, David should rest for three weeks and be ready to resume playing. Again, at least it's not a tear.

Sorry to see that he isn't able to play in his own country. Hope he will be ok before the TMS starts again.
