I noticed the drop in the race ranking. It's a bit surprising to me - I suppose all the points are quite close together. I also noticed that Roddick has made it back to number 3 already after 2 good tournaments which I find a bit hard to believe however true it is.

Don't really care much about the exhibition though the prospect of David and Nadal facing each other (possibly for the first time) is interesting, though no one will be seeing this anyway, and also it's not a competitive match. We already know he likes playing lots of exhos and it's not like he'd change his normal schedule to play another lead-up tournament anyway.

Emilita said a few days ago that David was in talk for the Hopman Cup this year, but it's just a rumour for the time being:

If he plays the exhibition in Thailand, I guess he won't play the Hopman Cup.

Thanks for that. I guess it would make sense to go to Thailand to play this exhibition, then go straight to Perth seeing as the travelling distances involved aren't too great.

Nalbandian into second round at Vienna

Second-seeded David Nalbandian also advanced after beating fellow Argentine Juan Ignacio Chela 6-7 (6), 6-2, 6-2.

Nalbandian, who led 5-3 before wasting two first-set points in the tiebreaker, hit 27 baseline winners in his first match since his second-round exit at the U.S. Open last month.

"It's hard for me to play Juan Ignacio. We train a lot together, so he knows my game very well," Nalbandian said. "I played well in the second and third set. The rather slow surface worked in my favor."

Nalbo is on the front cover of ACE, the main British tennis magazine this month.
The cover is in the link above. I'll try to buy it in the next few days and tell you guys what he said in the interview.

Well I got a mag and its a good interview imo. There's nothing really new but he comes across much better than in his blog.

It starts off with him saying that he has a secret when it comes to beating Fed. Whatever your secret was it didin't work today. He talks about his consistency at the slams saying "I feel I can play good anywhere" and his belief that he can win a major one day. Then the interview starts to get better.
He says the court that his dad built for him was very important in helping him start out in the game. 22 years on "It's exactly the same court" with "alot of cracks in it". He feels comfortable everytime he plays there and he still uses it for serious training sessions when he's home.
When in the capital, Buenos Aires, he stays in his own apartment, but as you know he's most comfortable when back at the family home in Unquillo. He describes his family as "completely average, normal middle class" adding that his parents used to run a leather shop. Nalbo says that he's aware of his family roots in Armenia and wants to visit the mother country one day.
It then goes on to talk about the sad loss of his dad in 2004. Nalbo says "It was a complete shock" adding that it was difficult to sleep, play and focus on anything, but his family helped him through.
He talks about his strong relationship with Victoria saying that they're perfect. He says " I know the rules and she knows the rules" when referring to their long distance relationship.
He then goes onto the issue of doping. He defends his compatriots saying he felt they didin't take illegal substances intentionally and they didin't have the proper advice when replying to the rumours on the tour that there is a culture of doping among Argentine players. He admits he is very very careful about what he eats and drinks, with most of his time spent worring about contamination than about his performance on the court according to the magazine. "Everyone is scared about it" says Nalbo when talking about doping and the consequences it has on a career.
The last part of the article is about rallying, rallying, oh and more rallying. You all know about that now.

Those were the main parts of the article everyone.

Nalbo will once again play at Kooyong next year as preparation for the Aussie Open.

He likes Kooyong, I remember he won it in 2004 and then was pretty impressive at the early rounds of the Aussie Open before loosing to Fed in the quarters.
Thanks for the article, Gooner. Unfortunately, David is no longer leading Fed in their H2H, so the statement about having a secret sounds obsolete especially after 6-0 slap in the face.
Serious work, total dedication, maturity and mental improvement is needed for David to be able to compete consistently with Fed, Nadal and other top players. Let's hope that happens, hopefully soon.
