Default News: David will be in Estoril Open 2006

João Lagos, Estoril Open's director, confirm first name of Estoril Open 2006, David Nalbandian. David played this tournament in 2000 and 2002, in 2000 he received an Qual. wildcard, won all Qual.'s 3 matchs to lost in 1st round of Main Draw; in 2002, Nalbandian wins his firts title in Estoril, after defeat Ferrero and Moya.

Estoril Open 2006 is schedule to May's first week (1-7 May). Good luck, David!

Press Release (in portuguese):
Code:
17º ESTORIL OPEN

DAVID NALBANDIAN:

CAMPEÃO DA MASTERS CUP

É PRIMEIRO PROTAGONISTA ANUNCIADO

 ‘TOURO DAS PAMPAS’ REGRESSA AO JAMOR PELA PRIMEIRA VEZ DESDE A CONQUISTA DO TÍTULO DO EVENTO PORTUGUÊS EM 2002 
NÚMERO SEIS MUNDIAL, BATEU ROGER FEDERER NA FINAL DA MASTERS CUP DE 2005
 
Numa altura em que tem uma grande parte da sua equipa a ultimar os preparativos para a Grande Partida do mais lendário rali de todo-o-terreno (o Euromilhões Lisboa-Dakar), João Lagos fez questão de anunciar o primeiro grande protagonista do próximo Estoril Open –- o mais importante evento tenístico internacional realizado anualmente em Portugal, integrado nos calendários profissionais do ATP e do WTA Tour e cuja 17ª edição decorrerá entre os dias 29 de Abril e 7 de Maio de 2006.

Curiosamente, a vedeta anunciada é um fanático de ralis e é conhecido por ser um todo-o-terreno capaz de produzir excelentes resultados em todos os tipos de courts: o argentino David Nalbandian, recentemente consagrado ‘mestre dos mestres’ com o seu triunfo sobre o número um mundial Roger Federer por 6-7, 6-7, 6-2, 6-1 e 7-6 na final da elitista Masters Cup de Shanghai.

«Mesmo com a máquina organizativa da João Lagos Sports muito empenhada na Grande Partida do Euromilhões Lisboa-Dakar, continuamos a trabalhar nas nossas outras grandes realizações -– como o Estoril Open», revelou João Lagos. «E tenho o prazer de anunciar o primeiro grande protagonista da próxima edição: o argentino David Nalbandian. Tive a oportunidade de assistir a essa épica final da Masters Cup em que ele acabou com o mito de invencibilidade de Roger Federer; o David deu-se a conhecer ao mundo através da conquista do título do Estoril Open em 2002, mas por circunstâncias diversas foi impossível vê-lo actuar no Jamor desde então… mas estará finalmente de volta para o ano».

David Nalbandian regressará a Portugal pela primeira vez desde que conquistou o título do Estoril Open em 2002 -– derrotando então o surpreendente finlandês Jarkko Nieminen na final, após ter deixado pelo caminho campeões como Juan Carlos Ferrero (salvando três match-points na segunda ronda) e Carlos Moya (nas meias-finais). A presença do possante jogador de Córdoba no Jamor abrilhantará seguramente o esperado alto nível do elenco masculino e reforça a candidatura argentina ao domínio do palmarés do evento português, já que os homens das Pampas venceram três títulos nas últimas quatro edições (2002 David Nalbandian; 2004 Juan Ignacio Chela; 2005 Gaston Gaudio).

TODO-O-TERRENO

David Nalbandian é uma das incontestadas vedetas do circuito profissional, assinando frequentemente excelentes prestações em todos os tipos de piso e sobretudo nos torneios mais importantes -– em 2005, atingiu os quartos-de-final em três torneios do Grand Slam (Open Austrália, Wimbledon e US Open) e na final da exclusiva Masters Cup pôs cobro a quatro impressionantes séries vitoriosas do ‘invencível’ Roger Federer: 24 finais ganhas consecutivamente desde Julho de 2003 (recorde absoluto); 35 encontros ganhos consecutivamente desde as meias-finais de Roland Garros em Junho de 2005; 41 encontros ganhos consecutivamente em hardcourts desde as meias-finais do Open da Austrália em Janeiro de 2005 e ainda 22 encontros ganhos consecutivamente em recinto coberto desde o desaire em Fevereiro de 2004 contra Tim Henman, em Roterdão.

Prestes a completar 24 anos, David Nalbandian começou por dar nas vistas nos juniores, ao ganhar o US Open em 1998 e atingir a final de Wimbledon e as meias-finais de Roland Garros no ano seguinte. Já como sénior, estreou-se no quadro principal do Estoril Open em 2000, perdendo na primeira ronda do quadro principal com o seu compatriota Franco Squillari, depois de ter ultrapassado o qualifying (com convite de João Lagos!). Em 2001 subiu mais de 200 lugares no ranking, para terminar o ano na 47ª posição. Em 2002 deu o grande salto: somou o primeiro título da carreira no Estoril Open. Três meses depois, chegava à final de Wimbledon, perdendo somente com o então número um mundial Lleyton Hewitt!

O ‘ANTI-FEDERER’

A partir daí, foi consolidando o seu lugar no top 10 mundial e só múltiplas lesões o impediram de se chegar ainda mais à frente. Denotando um excelente sentido táctico e uma solidez mental a toda a prova, David Nalbandian é capaz de derrotar todos os melhores tenistas do mundo em qualquer tipo de superfície e é a ‘besta negra’ de Roger Federer (seis vitórias contra quatro derrotas, para além de o ter derrotado na final júnior do US Open). O argentino apresenta actualmente um palmarés com quatro títulos em onze finais (destacando-se a presença no derradeiro encontro de Wimbledon, em relva), para além de meias-finais no US Open (em 2003 teve match-point face ao futuro campeão Andy Roddick, nos hardcourts de Flushing Meadows!) e nos Campeonatos Internacionais de França (em 2004 perdeu com o futuro campeão Gaston Gaudio, na terra batida de Roland Garros).

In last year, David was close of Estoril. Munich and Estoril dispute David by wildcard. So, isn't surprise this year Davis "prefer" Estoril than Munich.

Strange that he won't try to defend his title in Munich.
