David Nalbandian y Carlos Moyá ofrecieron este sábado una exhibición peculiar en la Avenida 9 de Julio, en pleno centro de Buenos Aires. Como anticipo de la Copa Telmex, el argentino y el español pelotearon frente a más de 800 personas en las intersecciones de 9 de Julio y Avenida Perón, a 100 metros del Obelisco.

"Fue una experiencia increíble. La gente siempre se encuentra muy receptiva a este tipo de exhibiciones", indicó Nalbandian, que reaparecerá en el torneo argentino luego de haberse ausentado del equipo de Copa Davis por una tendinitis en la rodilla izquierda, que arrastra desde fines del año pasado. Su retorno marcará, al mismo tiempo, el regreso al ATP argentino, que disputó por última vez en el 2003.

"El cariño que me demuestran aquí es increíble y no me canso de repetirlo", dijo Moyá, quien obtuvo su primer título ATP en Buenos Aires, hace 12 temporadas, y volvió a ganar en 2003 y 2006. Defensor del título, el mallorquín integrará el grupo 2 del round robin y podría encontrarse con Nalbandian en cuartos de final.

Pretty much what it says is that Moya and Nalbandian participated in an odd exhibition in the center of Buenos Aires. Nalbandian said it was an incredible experience and people are always very welcoming in these exhibitinos. It says tendonitis in his left knee caused him to miss Davis Cup. Moya says that the people in Buenos Aires show him much affection and won his first tilte in Buenos Aires 12 years ago and won it in 03 and 06 again. It also says he's looking to defend his title and could meet Nalbandian in the quarters should he make it out of the group stage.

Seems the number of public really surprised the Telmex Cup people and the players.
Here's another very similar picture but you can see the number of fans there:

"Fue una experiencia muy entretenida", dijo el unquillense respecto de la exhibición jugada sobre una superficie de asfalto.
"Estas son cosas que se dan muy de vez en cuando. Debe ser la primera vez que se juega en la 9 de Julio", agregó. "Realmente me divertí mucho."
Nalbandian se mostró sorprendido por la numerosa concurrencia. "La verdad es que no me esperaba esto. Es muy bueno que la gente nos puedan ver de cerca. La gente acá es incondicional".

Nalbandian (who won 2-1): It was a funny experience, something not usual (he believes is the first time in ARgentina) That he had a great time and was really surprised by the number of public (for more information, it was a really cold day with a looooot of wind) there. It's great the people could be close to the palayers and that the argie people is unconditional.

I saw images on tv last night and both were laugthing like crazy.

Yeah, I saw a little of it on TV [Sportcenter] and The atmosphere was awesome, both players were enjoying the match; people as well of course.
This need to be done in Viña as well, I'm sure people would assist to the early rounds of the Movistar Open with a promotion like this!
