Default Do you think Nalbandian will be a dark horse in Paris?

A bit like Soderling was to Nadal in 2009.

Coming with such a low ranking to a GS (and apparently in good form), I guess he can be quite a threat to any of the top players he has to face early in his quarter. Maybe he'll end up losing but if there's a chance of someone taking out Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, etc. early, I'd say he's the most likely candidate to do the job.

Anyhow, I'll wait to see what the draw is like. Something interesting might happen this year too.

Potentially he can. He has the game to upset anyone. Problem is he probably won't be able to do the distance because of his weak endurance.

Nalbandwagon gathering steam again.

Anything can happen with him can play 5 star tennis and then lose to anyone cause he might not be in the mood.

No. It's just too late for him. Maybe if he had tried harder in his earlier days.

Fit David's exotic dance seems disturbingly jovial given Fat David's usual moody persona.

No. He'll play a 5 setter in the 1st or second round and it will be the end of the road for him.

No stamina. Can't even last with Nadal in a best of 3 match. Can beat Muzza though.

After watching his match with Youzhny yesterday i would have to say no. Doesn't look like he has the fitness yet! Great to see him back playing again though.

Absolutely. I see no reason he can't win Bercy again.

In Bercy he can be.

He will lose to Robredo today and people will jump off the bandwagon again.

Nalby just isn't a Grand Slam player. His last GS loss was to Yen Hsun Lu for goodness sakes.
