Nalbandian Looks to Cincinnati
After an early exit in Toronto, David Nalbandian is hoping for better things in Cincinnati. He is in action on Day 1, as is Robby Ginepri.

http://www.atptennis.com/1/en/newsandscores/news/cincy_preview.asp

Ginepri, Nalbandian in Day 1 Cincinnati Action

Third seed David Nalbandian , No. 6 James Blake, No. 8 Marcos Baghdatis, No. 10 David Ferrer and No. 15 Robby Ginepri play their first round matches on Center Court Monday on Day 1 of the Western & Southern Financial Group Masters in Cincinnati.

Nalbandian of Argentina faces qualifier Rik De Voest of South Africa in their first ATP meeting. Nalbandian , 24, was feeling sick last week and lost in the first round of the Rogers Masters event in Toronto to Davide Sanguinetti. That was his first tournament since Wimbledon. Nalbandian’s INDESIT ATP Ranking stood at a career-best No. 3 last week. He has a career record of 4-3 in Cincinnati, making the quarterfinals in 2003.

From Yahoo!:

Nalbandian rebounds from first-round upset in Toronto

By TERRY KINNEY, Associated Press Writer
August 14, 2006

MASON, Ohio (AP) -- Third-seeded David Nalbandian of Argentina waited out a rain delay and beat Rik De Voest of South Africa 6-0, 6-4 on Monday in the first round of the $2.45 million Western & Southern Financial Group Masters.

Nalbandian, who reached the semifinals of two Grand Slam events earlier this year but was upset in the first round of last week's Masters event in Toronto, had seemed headed for an quick win to start the tournament near Cincinnati.

He led 4-0 after just 17 minutes when the match was suspended because of heavy rain. The players came back an hour and a half later and warmed up, but a light rain returned. Finally, after 2 hours and 19 minutes, play resumed.

Nalbandian quickly won the set, then cruised through the second, unbothered by the double delay.

"The first set was important, when I was 4-0, then to come back and win it quickly was good," Nalbandian said. "Then you feel you just have to play one more set, or maybe two."

I just saw the score when you typed it and I'm not surprised. He always likes to do things the hard way. Has he even had a BP? Stan's a good player with weapons, and if Nalbo doesn't raise his game soon its goodbye Cincy for him.

Nothing surprises me anymore when it comes to Nalbo. Stan's a good player, but Nalbo has already beaten him twice this year, and pretty comfortably. WTF happened. :smash:
If he doesn't up his game and his attitude 100% he'll go out early in NYC.

What he needs is a coach; someone to kick him up the backside because he sure does need it. At the moment he's just drifting along. Even when he loses I don't see any anger, nothing. Last week he was sick so that was understandable, but to lose like that today is awful. The sad thing is that I don't even think he cares either way.
He needs to be more committed and have a better attitude. That way he'll play better. He usually does well in GS so I hope he raises his game there, but I have many many doubts. :(

O.K. he was sick last week but what about today?

David screw your head on right and let's see what we know you can do.

Do you think he'll try for a wild card for next week since he's only "played" 3 matches in the last eight weeks? If you want to call what he did today playing. And his first round match was little more than a warm up.

You are completely right. I watched the match yesterday and it was awful and bored to watch it. There was nothing interesting. David only moved from one side to another, without any emotions and interest in tenis. I don't know what wrong is with him. But now he looks like he doesn't like tennis and he is on court only because he must. I hope it will improve because he can't play tennis with such an attitude. No anger, no emotions, nothing .... :confused: :confused:

Nah, a world #3 shouldn't be arsed with these second-tier AMS events. He'll show up only in Slams from now on. ;)

But really, after the French Open I've seen very little to be pleased with in Dave's play. His mentality seems eerily similar to Safin's from a few years ago. Minor injuries treated somewhat recklessly on a consistent basis and a mental folding everytime his draw seems favorable or opens up. Contrary to Safin though, he harms himself by appearing completely detached and unemotional towards his game.

I'm wishing he'll come in adequately prepared and do some damage at the USO but so far this summer campaign has only reminded me of his year 2004 US tour which ended in a lacklustre 2nd round defeat against Youzhny. The skills David showed against Federer in the FO semifinals for a set and a half have gone nowhere. The difference is purely mental and somewhat physical and I sincerely believe that Dave will be able to summon his competitive spirit when the chips are down and a 5th set looms in the first round against a qualified nobody in the upcoming US Open.

When our boy's firing on all cylinders, he is the best player out there. And he himself knows it. How much is David willing to put at stake here? How much is he willing to suffer? I like the fact that he has shitloads of other activities besides tennis, it's a mentality I can relate to. But tennis is David's ticket to glory and I wish he would come to terms with it. A single Masters Cup is sweet and all but i want him to hold a Grand Slam trophy some day.

I want him to play with fire in his (proverbial) belly, that's all. There's nothing bad in losing but, goddammit, it's the 'not-even-trying' -part that I'm sick of.

David always does the same thing.When we expect more of him, he disappoints us :banghead:. But I'm sure when all of us least expect it, he will surprise us :)

Take him or leave him. He is as he is. Although he loses when a #300 player, he always will be a very good player :worship:

Yeah same here. Great memories, and looking back I felt he would make more slam finals. But still only 1 so far, but he has time as long as he has his head screwed on right. I accept him for who he is and will always support him through thick and thin like you Claudia, but I hope he doesn't waste the talent that he has.
