THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. How concerned were you after the first set?

DAVID NALBANDIAN: Well, he started playing very good in the beginning, and I couldn't do my best shots in the first set. So it was a very close set, very tough. Both of us had a breakpoints, nobody could make it.

And then I start playing better. My returns come better all the time, and he falls down a little bit and I always, after the first set, play better, better and better. That's the result.

Q. So you got to feel pretty good about the way you were playing by the end of the match today?

DAVID NALBANDIAN: Yeah, yeah, of course. Especially in the beginning of the second one, when I started playing better, I really feel good. I like it.

Q. When you survive matchpoints early in a tournament, does it sort of change the way you look at the rest of the tournament, almost like you've been given a second chance?

DAVID NALBANDIAN: No, you try to think match by match, doesn't matter the results. I mean, if you have to save matchpoints or set points, really doesn't matter how you won. The important thing is it's won here.

Two days ago, I save a matchpoint. Didn't play good. Today, I played good. So that's important. Every time, every moment that I spend on court playing better and better, so that's good.

Q. Based on the way you came along today and the progress you made, how do you feel about your chances the second week of the tournament?

DAVID NALBANDIAN: I feel good, especially now that I'm feeling the ball very good. I think I'm ready to keep going.

Q. What do you think about the challenge system? Do you like it?

DAVID NALBANDIAN: I answered that question two days ago, but it's nice.

Q. Would you challenge on a ball you weren't sure of if it was late in a set and you still had a couple challenges and there was a ball you weren't sure.

DAVID NALBANDIAN: No, if I'm not sure, I'm not gonna challenge.

Q. Can I ask you a question about Roger Federer. How well do you think he is playing this year compared with last year, for example?

DAVID NALBANDIAN: He's playing good as well. I mean, I don't see much different from last year to this one. He always plays good.

Q. As a player who has a good record against him, what do you think is the secret of beating Federer?

DAVID NALBANDIAN: I like to play against him. I don't know exactly the secret, but I like really enjoy it every time we play each other.
He must have answered that Q a million times :rolls:

Nalbandian Survives To Face Stepanek
By Sandra Harwitt


David Nalbandian

David Nalbandian has finally gone beyond the third round here at the NASDAQ-100 Open.

The Argentine has played here on five previous occasions but hasn’t had much success – his first three visits to Crandon Park ended in the first round and he reached the third-round in 2003 and 2005.

A Wimbledon finalist in 2002, Nalbandian has carved out a reputation for being a confident and bulldoggish opponent on the court. He certainly utilized those skills when he worked his way to the Australian Open semifinal in January.

Playing with a career high ranking of No. 3, Nalbandian will hope to move into the quarterfinals here with a win over No. 15 seed Radek Stepanek of the Czech Republic.

But fans can be assured that Nalbandian will not be approaching this match with the notion he’s got it wrapped up before hitting a ball. But that’s okay because Nalbandian is a workhorse on a court, and he’s willing to stay the course and battle for each and every point he wins.

It’s almost surprising that a guy is ranked within the top 10 players in the world since 2003 and has only won four career titles, but Nalbandian has been able to work that all out. One reason is that he always puts in consistent performances at tournaments, making the later rounds more often than not.

Stepanek will be no easy pushover, and Nalbandian knows that he was on the losing side of their only previous career encounter at the Rotterdam tournament last year.

And Stepanek is having a pretty good 2006 – he won his first career singles title last month at Rotterdam and also reached the semifinals at Chennai.

The fan base here in Miami often includes a strong South American presence and that should be a tremendous assist for Nalbandian. Unfortunately for Stepanek, Miami is not a-flutter with a large Czech population.

Nalbandian will need the crowd’s help, but should send Stepanek packing.



Yeah right - SEND HIM PACKING!!!! :bounce:

C'mon David beat Stepanek. He has to be the ugliest tennis player going around. Don't you reckon ???? It's bed time here for me so I hope when I get up in morning and put the news on our David has won. Keep cheering Nalby fans.

Jill
03-28-2006, 01:21 PM
I wonder what colour he will be wearing. Odds on - orange. Alternate colours each match by the looks of things.

Saw a replay of match against TB, Nalby was awful in first set but played well in 2 & 3 and TB played crap. See he had his baby blue colour. Much better hey Tiffany ??

Hola Mr. SK

Kyla
03-28-2006, 08:28 PM
Okay, at least one more set to go until David gets on. Ferrer just lost the first set to O. Rochus - so of course I hope for TWO more sets coz I want "el otro David" to fight back and turn this around! :bounce:

I'll be back in about an hour to cheer on Nalby!

VAAAAAAMOOOOOOOS!!!!
