His problem is not mental if not he wouldn't have won Master and wouldn't be a king in DC, a very tought competition which needs a strong mind to play in front of a noisy unamical foreign crowd sometimes

I disagree.

Look at how Fed got his feet wet. 2003 Wimbledon.

Dave had a 5 setter going into the final with Peak Lleyton Hewitt.

Fed got Phil A Poosis in his first final.

How could history have turned for Dave had he won that 2002 Wimbledon and then the 2003 US Open which he was ROBBED of.

When you look at it that way Dave could have had a stellar career, at least on par with Hewitt.

Instead hes got to settle for what history gave him.

Some people got it easier than others.

honestly it's an insult to the people who've actually worked their asses off and got those slams.

Voted more than 5, i think he is (was) more talented than Agassi. Now, even if i'm right (what is talent?) i don't think it means he deserves\deserved even one, just because he is so talented. Less gifted players could put it together for 2 weeks, mentally, phisically, he couldn't, not even once, though he was close a couple of times. He still have a puncher's chance to win one.

Obviously he had the talent to win several, but there are plenty of underachievers on the tour.

I think like this post.
Sure he's remarkable when he's on

Right on.

If the guy was Fed-fit, he would have had half a dozen slams imo

It's clear that the guy is brilliant when on

Re: Poll: How many Grand Slams could Fit-Dave have won?

overall i can think of 8

Real shots/wasted chances:

2002 Wimbledon* (green, washed up nalbandian losing to hewitt.. he could have, got to the final but not mentally ready. unfortunately got squashed by hewitt)
2003 US Open (got robbed against roddick, F vs Ferrero = easily best shot)
2004 Roland Garros (injured against Gaudio in SF, if he had won and coria had collapsed as well, then there you go)
2004 Australian Open (found an amazing federer, would have destroyed anybody else iin the draw= SF Ferrero, F tired safin )
2006 Australian Open (wasted an incredible match against baghdatis and coming off a 5 set win vs fed at tmc.. i remember fed didnt play well that final vs baghdatis still not sure about it)


longer shots:


2003 Australian Open ( off day vs Schuettler, tired Roddick in SF, Agassi in F? who knows)
2005 Australian Open (QF loss 8-10 vs hewitt, SF vs Roddick and F vs In form Safin-the-zone)
2006 Roland Garros (retired in the semis vs federer after schooling the swiss maestro at the start of the match, then suddenly after set up break up, faded. injury. considered longer shot since he would have had to fight off nadal in the final)


those are the slams i recall with nalbandian playing with decent chances of achieving a slam. the rest it was easy to predict he would lose. IMO of course, these are the "fit dave's" slam.
