Congrats to Horna for winning, and to "Jerry" for starting the thread without which his life would have no meaning.

Well done Lucho!

The Peruvian played very well. And Nalbandian served poorly... his back problems might have something to do with that.

Well.... see the player in your avatar ;)

Very well for Horna.
David didn't show up today: was out of timing and without distance.
Clearly the first match after a long time.
Nice to see Lucho in this level.
Hoping for David to weak up and get his level back :sad:

Yes, the TV said something about that.. I knew about the knee (he played with the little band today) but I was surprised when I heard that he was having back problems too.

I worked with his former PT (hockey seleccion), and he's very good, but He has some ideas I don't share. For example to correct Nalbo's bad muscular work (the work he did as young made some muscles more stronger than others and that's what caused him those abdominals injuries specially when he played on clay and other problems too), he made Nalbo gain weight (to protect some zones with fat and work musculation later) :confused:
I know that tecnich but I don't think is good for a tennis player. I think David is seeing the consecuences now. That and the horrible half year he had in 2006 playing injured for almost 4 months.
Hoping for him to come back to the level we know he has.

And yeah, he served bad today

No he's not. That's the difference between "one time wonders" that go down after a year and someone that's having a bad period and injured.
I don't think you can call a joke someone that reached at least SF in every GS (the only one with Federer in that club), played in 5 years of proffesional 3 Masters Cup (champion and SF in other); not mentioning DC's performances is not "a joke". He's not constant? Yes, but now he's going throught a bad period. Simple.
Since he reached the top in 2002 (let's call that the Top 15) he didn't went down more than 15 of ranking. (taking in consideration one year he couldn't almost play due to injuries).
like it or not, you can't call it a joke.

Yeah, I answered the "joke" thing. The other part didn't deserve a replay at all.
Again, players on avatar? At least with Nalbo we know talentwise he's a top ten. The problem is another with him

See the first post. It wasn't long and I said he was with no distance and without timing and he played bad.
What you quoted was a answer to another poster, not you by the way, about something that was said on tv. No justification for Nalbandian's match today

I am so glad to see Dahveed back that I give a shit about the essays, the Glenn's and the Jerry's and the Ljubo's in this thread. Welcome back, D. Just focus now!

And congrats Lucho. :)

i can't undestand as a player who was semifinalist of roland garros can played at this form in clay...it seems like he was playing in hardcourt...his move were too slow...after french opern 2006 nalbandian's form was very bad

It's ok, don't feel offended, it's just a pattern I've been noticing and I felt the need to ask. ;)

You have your answer ir your message: see what happened at that SF against Federer. He went down after that, except for the DC (with other team) And what I said about his now former trainner, Luis Barrionuevo.

would not surpirse me, many people dont know how to work out properly, especially for sports...

lucho took it to nalbandian, but nalbandian played like shit, served like shit and had roddickesk clay movement, then he started crying about his back, but its time to stop the whining and get in shape and practice the serve every once in a while...

i am very angry...because i buy tickets to see the best nalbandian.... but i think that he did some mistakes...
played too much exhibitions...in december and kooyong... come on the tennis players do something that is call "pre-season" do you know this term david? its when the tennis players work in his endurance and etc...
and when you doesn't play you work in another terms of the game nalbi didn't hit a ball in the last month... at this form you can win a match

congratulations horna

Lucho would have probably lost if that was the case, but so far so good for the Peruvian. It'd be even better if he could return consistently.

congratulations horna

pre-season is what David, Calleri and others couldn't do in time due to DC. David had planned his pre-season after AO 2007 and used the exhibitions as trainning. It worked for him the first time (after the Masters he won, and in that case after AO he played the DC, so he didn't have a pre-season in 2006). In Chennai his knee got worst (hard surface, logic thing to happen wonder what his team was thinking :rolleyes: ) and all the pre-season plans went to hell: he only could start to train this past week by medical orders
The same happened with Chucho and Calleri and their pre-seasons. (Agustin got injured too). Nalbandian is now is a bad place without a total recuperation and having to play because he has no option: the worlds keeps going.
I'm the first to say he has to play more etc, but the pre-season thing is something you have to know very well the topic to talk about, and every player case is different. More when some players couldn't do it because they were playing for the country. I get your pissed, me too. But get the right information ;)

I sometimes wonder if Nalby will wish too late that he put more effort into his career. And his weight gain was rather sudden, wasn't it? He was not overweight during his run to the Wimbly finals and for a while there he was looking fine- but after he was out for injuries for a while he got quite big and has never really lost it.

But congrats to Horna- he can have great game. I remember how the crowd at the USO was really impressed with him during his losing effort to Nadal. Pretty good year for him so far.

Nalbandian defends 1249 of his 1995 points until RG. I think it's pretty clear he'll be out of top 20. I hope he start taking tennis more seriously after this bad moment.

I bet Fat Dave hates round robin. Now he has to tank twice instead of just hit traditional one.

No, we left that to Ljubo. After all Nalbo was SF in the last MC, where was Ljubicic? Ah! out because he lost in straight sets :wavey:

I think you're counting the AO SF points that already dissapeared. Still a lot to deffend. Hope he gets well soon. He's doing his pre-season now (couldn't train for medical orders). But what he really needed after AO was stoping for a month at least. You can't play injured for almost 6 months. :(
I think Cañas is going to slap him today, Nalbo''s noticiable out of tennis, while Willy is like a machine.

Doesn't surprise me THAT much, especially on clay. On any other service I would pick Nalbandian 10/10, but on clay it's a tough call.

David needs to get going in 2007 though, and soon!

No, it was from a Ljubo fan that started to bash Nalby and tanking twice in RR
It was directed to that poster. Actually I'm part of the group that actually likes Ljubo and his style. :yeah:
