It's a shame, I like David Nalbandian, sad to know in a couple of years he'll be gone.

People want to trash Agassi for saying he hated the game at one time.....but at least he overcame that and performed to his potential and with all of his heart well into his 30's.

Nalbandian prepares and plays like he hates the game, year in and year out. He is a true disgrace to tennis.

He may not be able to play his best all the time but it doesn't mean he hates tennis, that's for sure. Unlike Agassi who took crystal meth because he no longer enjoyed what he was doing (which happens at some point in every players careers), Nalbandian chose to enjoy his career and his life by pursuing other interests. Now if you find that disgraceful then shame on you. :o

the complete interview was in last sunday La Nacion magazine
he guarantees to play during 2010 and 2011. and then following how he feels, will decide to play more, or retiring definitely
probably will play in 2012 too. the Davis Cup draw for Argentina can be decisive on this decision

I know hes desperate to win the Davis Cup so lets hope that he and Argentina to win it finally and then he can happily retire :p

If the guy wants to retire and pursue other interests, then good luck to him. I know he has a passion for cars so maybe he wants to get into that. Hes made his millions and has had a good career. Awante gringo! :)

he really is lazy :rolls:How about Safin? he will even retire before 30, and almost nobody said anything negative :p why only say Nalby lazy then? I will miss him after his retirement but if he finally decides to retire at 30, then i believe that will be a decision from his deep consideration. I will be happy for him coz finally he can enjoy his life as he wants and doesn't need to be ridiculed by the stupid media and the people.

About retiring, he has said different things in different interviews.
I guess it'll all depend on how well he'll be able to play after surgery.

His best days are gone, anyway. Even in those days he couldn't win a slam. Not happening now.

I don't care if he never wins a Slam. I just want to see him play for a couple more seasons.

Why are people making a big deal out of this anyway. 30 is a pretty normal age for a tennis player to retire. Very few actually manage to keep playing at a high level (and by high level I mean the main tour) in their thirties.

Also Nalbandian has been playing on the main tour since he's 19, it's not like he was a late bloomer or anything.

Guys, have you ever been in Argentina. There are no donuts here. There are no donuts chain all over Argentina.
In the 90's Dunkin Donuts and I think Donuts inn opened a couple of stores and a couple of years later they closed business.

On the other hand we eat a lot of meat but normally not so much burgers...

Ask Nalbandian how many donuts have he ate in his entire life and for sure you will count them with the fingers of your hand...

hahahaha, the guy mgorganchian is saying the truth. Chile has Dunkin Donuts, Argentina doesn't. There are no donuts over here, they are very rare.

Indeed, in any case, he might eat a lot of "facturas" and that's it. It's as if I told you that Roddick loves to drink "mate" on his spare time... Just because in my country mate is a popular drink doesn't mean it even exists in yours.

Just because in my country mate is a popular drink doesn't mean it even exists in yours.I guess that Nalbi is compared to Homero, so you can imagine him eating donuts and drinking beer... but that would be very weird :spit: For sure you can say he eats many barbecues... beer here is common but in bottle, it's not very used the can thing, though it is sold very well. I think fernet and barbecue would be the right combination of aperitives for satisfying Nalbandian's hunger.

Next time pictures of this please, as Nalbi eating donuts is likely to happen as Spadea winning a Grand Slam.

I hope Nalbandian keeps playing after 30. His game is great and doesn't seem too taxing on his body.
But, why is his dream is winning the davis cup, not winning a GS?

You tell them. It's about time someone set the record straight, Nalbandian's eating habits have been sorely misrepresented.

lol. the most ridiculous thing i've heard today. so, nalbandián should live his life the way you think he should live it? right... if he doesn't like tennis (something that's not true btw) and has enough money to live a good life without having to play tennis, then i would fully support his decision to not play the sport anymore. why should someone be forced to do something he hates doing anyway.

He can do whatever he likes, and I hope he is happy. But that doesn't make his effort towards tennis any less of a disgrace. I am a fan of tennis....I really don't care about his other interests.

Oh well, looking forward to seeing him in Auckland next year :)

Defending champ Del Po was too cool for the Heiny open in 010, but id prefer Nalby any day.

:yeah: 30 is quite a normal age for a player to retire. I think Andy will probably retire around age 30 too, and one can't say he's lazy. There aren't many around like Bjorkman who will play anyway they can for as long as possible. Pete Sampras retired at age 30 or thereabouts.

In his latest interview (aired yesterday) he said he wants to play for another 3 or 4 years...
He keeps saying different things about it. He obviously doesn't know yet.

I can only dream of David having a run like Cañas did when he came back, except on a more important stage and of course with the superiority that is Nalba's talent.

good decision I think:yeah:
but he should keep up himself as FIT DAVE,and to take a grand slam title before 30.
after retiring from tennis,go to enjoy the Rally Race:drive:
