Murió el padre de David Nalbandian

El año terminó de la peor manera para David Nalbandian. Esta mañana recibió la peor noticia: su padre, Nolberto Nalbandian, falleció cerca de las 11.30 en un hospital de Córdoba a causa de un paro cardíaco.

El padre del tenista murió en horas del mediodía en el Sanatorio Allende, del barrio Nueva Córdoba. Nolberto, de 65 años, había ingresado a la clínica por la madrugada, aquejado de fuertes dolores en el pecho. Allí se lo alojó en el sector de terapia intensiva, en donde se le practicaron técnicas de reanimación y se lo intervino quirúrgicamente, sin resultados.

Sumamente compungido, David estuvo presente en el sanatorio junto a otros familiares, aunque sin formular declaraciones. El velatorio se realizará esta tarde en Unquillo, la localidad próxima a la capital cordobesa de donde era oriundo Nolberto Nalbandian.

David Nalbandian's Father Died

The year has ended in the worst way for David Nalbandian. This morning he recieved the worst news: his dad, Norberto Nalbandian, has passed away around 11:30 in a Cordoba Hospital because of a heart attack.

The tennis player's father died at noon in the Allende Sanatorio, in the Nueva Cordoba neighbourhood. Norberto, 65 years old, had entered the clinic early in the morning, because of very strong chest pains. He was staying in the instensive care section, where doctors practiced reanimation tecnics and he even got a surgery, with no results.

Inmensly sad, David was present at the clinic with his family, without making any comments. The wake will be done this afternoon in Unquillo, where Norberto was from.

I don't really have much to say here, I feel terrible about this :sad:

65 is always early... did he have ongoing heart problems all the time or was this heart failure out of nothing??... in the latter case the shock would be even bigger, because you wouldn't expect it at all!

Sure, that could be.
Personally, my biggest concern would always be that beloved persons suddenly pass away and that I couldn't see them one last time. The article says that David was at the hospital, so I guess at least this didn't happen to him.

This is very hard for Nalbandian and his whole family. It's difficult to lose a parent at anytime and for it to be a sudden death and close to the holidays makes it more difficult.

As Jazz Girl said, it is good that he was able to be with his father and family and not away at some tennis tournament.

:hug: for all the Nalbandian fans.

Wow! I am very shocked to hear this. I almost lost my mom on January 15th of this year to the very same thing and she was only 49 at the time. I know the devastation I felt even though she did survive. I can only imagine the shock and devastation that David and his family must be going through.

I now understand why Rosie and jazz said they don't expect him at the exhibition. If he does, I can only imagine it will be the way that he deals with grief and mourning. Not only will Christmas never be the same for him but neither will his birthday :sad: .

My thoughts are with the Nalbandian family.

The Funeral for David's Father will be held today in Unquillo. Here is the article from Clarins this morning:-

NALBANDIAN: MURIO SU PADRE A LOS 65 AÑOS

Dolor en Unquillo

CORDOBA (CORRESPONSAL). Nolberto Nalbandian, padre de David, murió ayer a los 65 años como consecuencia de un serio problema en la arteria aorta. Según fuentes médicas, la muerte fue a las 11.45 en el Sanatorio Allende del barrio capitalino Nueva Córdoba. Nolberto había ingresado al instituto médico a las 2.30 de la madrugada, con fuertes dolores en el pecho. Una vez internado en terapia intensiva, le detectaron un aneurisma en la aorta abdominal —gran inflamación en la arteria más importante—, le practicaron técnicas de reanimación y a las 4.30 lo sometieron a una intervención quirúrgica. Nada pudo revertir la gravedad del cuadro y poco antes del mediodía Nolberto sufrió un paro cardiorrespiratorio.

David estuvo toda la mañana en el sanatorio, junto con otros familiares, y no realizó declaraciones después del fallecimiento de su papá. El velatorio comenzó en las primeras horas de la tarde en una casa de sepelios de Unquillo, localidad cercana a la capital de donde es oriunda la familia, con la concurrencia del círculo más íntimo de los Nalbandian. Los restos de Nolberto serán cremados hoy.

Thanks for the articles Jazz - but that second one is so, so sad. Poor David -sometimes I forget how young he is - at times like this he is just a little boy to me and I want to give him a big hug just like his Mum. I hope the family find the strength to get through this difficult time together.

Yes - she does - and in my experience it is often the women who are strongest in these situations. She will still have the maternal instinct to protect her boys no matter how big and old they are. I just hope there is someone there to look after her.

It's such a pity his Dad can't watch David got a Grand Slam by his own eyes. The accident shock can make someone into two different directions, total dejection or burst stronger. If David achieves greater things in tennis by bursting his power, his Dad will see it in the paradise, and smile for sure.

With or without a GS or the number 1 in the ranking, his dad was always proud of David, and David knows that, all his family always was proud of him...that´s the important, and since now and for ever he has an Angel who will be take care of him in every moment of his life!!!!

This is my first post in David Forum. (I just read the sad news in the Gaston Gaudio Forum.) Poor David - so young and had to say good bye to his father. May his father rest in peace. My thoughts are with David and all the other people who are in the deepest of their sorrow.

By the way, I am sure you David fans know that his father was at RG this year. I happened to witness David welcoming his father at the venue. I saw David standing quite some time around the player entrance to Lenglen court (the one on the practice courts side). People kept on coming to him for his autograph or picture; it was as if he was giving a spontaneous autoghraph session. I took some pictures of him and noticed that he was waiting for someone eagerly. After a while his face beamed with delight and he said "Papa!" (it sounded "Pappaaaaaa!"). The happy father and son hugged and went inside. That was it - I just wanted to share this heartwarming scene with you. Hug to David and you all.

I read the news for the first time yesterday evening, but I was too shocked to post anything about it. But I read your sympathy messages for David, and I rejoin with you all. This is yet a terrible hardship for David to go through, but he's strong and I'm sure he'll get over it, with the help of his family and friends, and also us, the true fans, who have never let him down in bad times, and who never will.
Take heart, David, we're with you !

I would like to send my condolences to David and his family and friends too -

They are now entering a very tough chapter of their lives - very tough.

Please can I say one thing? I really do not want to offend anyone who reads this.... but please do not encourage David to "get over it" - he has not got a cold, or an injury, he has lost a dear member of his family - he has now found out the hard way that life is too short and special memories must be cherished. At the end of the day - the job he does (brilliantly) is NOT as important as his family.

I am not really getting my words and meanings down correctly here - but I hope what I am trying to say is coming through

Let him and his family and close friends find their way through on their own....

You are right, Basil. Your words didn't offend anyone here. Any one who lost a close family member will change some life thoughts, like you said, he found that life is too short and should cherish those special memories. I also lost my grandpa when i was in middle school, the feeling is the same. So, here, we don't push him to go out the sad mood, and back to his job tennis quickly.
Everyone who lost a beloved one would experience this suffering period, some ones will need longer time, and others shorter. But finally they will go out, and make new start of life. Whenever David will be recovered from hurting, we are always waiting here. We would like to see a refreshed player on the court, not a half-hurt one. Hope and believe he can deal with it in his own way, and support forever, just only my mind.

I really hope that his father didn't suffer for a long time.
I'm so sorry for David and his family.

believe he will come back with strong heart.

and Thank you so much Reiko. :worship:
I love these pics !!!!!!!
In fact when I found out the news, I was reminded of these lovely photos
, then I couldn't stop crying...
David looks like a 5 year-old boy waiting for his dad, don't you think
so? ;)
I understood how he was loved deeply by his dad, how he grew up
with a warm family.

Thanks again Reiko. :hug:
these pics are greatly precious for all DAVID FAN. :bounce:

I can´t say for sure, that you never get over from this....NEVER!!!
and don´t get me wrong, you can go on, and smile again, and even you can feel happiness, but only if you cry and get out from your heart all the suffering that a lost like this let you inside....That´s my wish for david and his family, nobody can´t tell how time they need for this, but i guess that everybody here, only wants the best for all Nalbandián family....
I hope that they can someday enjoy the greats memories together, with the new angel that now are in the sky shinning only for them....

une triste nouvelle...

haven't been here for a while due to my enormous amount of papers and stuff to do at uni. I came here today to check news about Copa Argentina cos I remember the event starts today. and I saw this piece of news. I can't find the right words to say. I still remember how sad my mom was when my grand-mother passed away. so I can sort of imagine how David is feeling.

well, words fail me at the moment. just want to say, be strong David, for your dad, for your family and for us.

R.I.P. Mr.Nalbandian

Very true. Some things are just not meant to be "get over with" but it will make you a stronger person. I'm sure David will be too.

Wow... I jusrt read this at the Copa Argentina de tennis thread (not in this forum, the other one) and I thought there should be a thread about this in this forum.

Those are really sad news, he certainly doesn't deserve it (well no one does actually), specially with the tough year ( regarding tennis) he has had.

Anyway... I just thought I had to say something about that... um... I guess that's all and that he should just try to keep going... I don't know what to say.
