He played really nice. Keep it up David.

An interesting comment from him:

"I have a very tough draw, but for my oponents it will be tougher to play against me...if i play well, i can beat everyone"

Is Federer much better than the rest of the players?

No, I don't think he's much better than us. I think he's a step ahead of us, but he's not unbeatable. I think he improved a lot his movility and his backhand. For me, that's what he improved the most.

David Nalbadian.

From L'Equipe, Sunday, 28.05.06. My French is too weak to share my translation.

NALBANDIAN, LE CAMELEON
L’Argentin, à l’aise sur tous les terrains, pourrait se mêler à la bagarre Federer-Nadal.
by ALEXANDRE JUILLARD (avec D. B.)

Opposé aujourd’hui au dangereux Stanislas
Wawrinka avant un éventuel duel avec Richard
Gasquet au deuxième tour, David Nalbandian,
vingt-quat re ans et numéro 3 mondial, se
présente comme l’une des alternatives les plus
crédibles à l’archidomination exercée par Federer
et Nadal sur le circuit.

DANS UN PAYS, l’Argentine, peuplé
d’habitants aux cheveux aussi noirs que le
charbon, les bouclettes blondes de David
Nalbandianlui ont valuun surnom qui le suit
depuis sa plus tendre enfance : le « Gringo »
(l’Anglo-Saxon pour les Sud-Américains).
Mais l’atypisme de David ne s’arrête pas là.
Dans un pays où les Goliath de la petite balle
jaune puisent leur force de la terre battue, lui
avoue que c’est la surface à laquelle il a le
plus de mal à s’adapter. Peut-être parce que
ses premiers coups de raquette ont été frappés
sur un court en ciment, construit par son
grand-père dans sa petite ville d’Unquillo
(à 800 kilomètres au nord de Buenos Aires).
Aujourd’hui, ce terrain est envahi par les
mauvaises herbes, mais rien ni personne ne
l’empêchera d’aller y taper quelques balles
lorsqu’il est de passage dans sa ville natale.
Si le « Gringo » a passé de longues heures
sur ce court, il a pourtant très vite saupoudré
ses chaussures de la terre ocre si chère aux
Argentins : « Tout simplement parce que
98 % des courts sont en terre battue. »


Ces racines tennistiques, entre le dur et la
terre, lui permettent aujourd’hui d’être un
vrai caméléon des courts. Il est en effet
capable de tirer le meilleur de son jeu sur
toutes les surfaces. « Mais je frappe et je
sens mieux la balle indoor, quand la balle
rebondit parfaitement, et sur les courts en
dur. Sur la terre battue, je joue bien, mais ce
qui m’agace, c’est que, selon le rebond, il
vous arrive de décentrer la balle. J’accepte
de plus en plus les mauvais rebonds, c’est
bon signe… De toute façon, je sais que je
peux gagner partout. La preuve, ce sont mes
titres (5 au total) : j’en ai trois sur terre battue
(Estoril deux fois et Munich) et deux sur moquette
(Bâle et le Masters). Aujourd’hui, j’arrive sur chaque
tournoi avec l’envie de les gagner. Quelle que soit
la surface. » Cette polyvalence fait de David
Nalbandian le plus à même de venir contrecarrer
la domination des deux « cannibales » du
circuit : Roger Federer et Rafael Nadal. L’an
dernier, il est par exemple le seul joueur,
avec Guillermo Coria et Federer, à avoir au
moins atteint les huitièmes de finale des
quatre tournois du Grand Chelem. Pendant
longtemps, il a même été la bête noire
du joueur suisse (l’Argentin mène encore
7-6 dans leurs duels). Mais il n’a jamais
croisé la raquette avec le gladiateur de la
terre battue Nadal : « C’est bien sûr le grand
favori à sa propre succession. Il est énorme
sur terre battue, pratiquement imbattable.
Mais tout est possible sur un match. En
termes de classement, maintenant, je suis
sûr que je peux m’approcher de lui. Car je
peux gagner beaucoup plus de points que
lui sur gazon, sur dur et indoor. Alors que
Federer est tout simplement intouchable.
Il a beaucoup trop d’avance. »

Avant de penser à l’après-terre battue,
David Nalbandian a l’esprit tourné vers ce
Roland-Garros, qu’il entame cet après-midi
contre le Suisse Stanislas Wawrinka.
Comme d’habitude, ses objectifs sont
simples : « Enfin gagner un tournoi du
Grand Chelem. Je suis prêt. Je n’ai pas trop
joué cette année car je m’économise pour
les grands tournois. Mon niveau est plus
élevé que l’an dernier. J’ai également un an
de plus. C’est important car, avec l’expérience,
on prend un peu plus de recul, on
connaît mieux son corps et son jeu. Je ne
cesse de progresser. Je me sens plus serein.
Et je suis physiquement au top. C’est souvent
là-dessus que ça se joue. »

Le physique est d’ailleurs devenu l’obsession
de la famille Nalbandian. Comme le
répète sans cesse son frère Javier, le tennis,
c’est avant tout « savoir souffrir. Il faut se
mettre minable pour espérer arriver à
quelque chose. Le talent ne suffit pas ». Pas
étonnant donc que le joueur argentin, qui
n’a plus d’entraîneur, voyage désormais
avec son seul physiothérapeute, Diego
Rodriguez. Il faut dire que le « Gringo » est
une force de la nature, un véritable taureau
des courts. Il est parexemple capable de réaliser
des séries de développé-couché avec
des barres pesant plus de 120 kilos. Sa résistance
à l’effort est également digne des
meilleurs, et il ne faut pas se fier à son
semblant d’embonpoint : son coup d’oeil lui
permet d’arriver très vite sur la balle. Son jeu
est à l’image de l’homme : solide.

« Il est l’un des tout meilleurs relanceurs du
circuit, observe Eduardo Infantino, l’un de
ses ex-entraîneurs. Son revers à deux mains
est un modèle du genre puisque sa prise lui
permet de trouver tous les angles. Comme
tous les Argentins, il maîtrise également
l’amortie, ce qui peut être une arme redoutable
sur terre battue. Et, depuis quelque
temps, il n’hésite pas à venir terminer les
points à la volée. C’est un roc, il est très difficile
à battre. » D’ailleurs, à la lecture de ses
résultats dans les grands tournois, Nalbandian
ne perd que dans les derniers tours, et
le plus souvent contre des joueurs de gros
calibre. Depuis sa retentissante victoire
contre Roger Federer au dernier Masters de
Shanghai, le joueur semble avoir franchi un
nouveau palier. « Jeme sens plus tranquille,
car je me suis prouvé que je peux gagner les
plus grands tournois. Je gère également différemment
ma saison. Je sais que, si je joue
quatre ou cinq semaines d’affilée, je perds
mon envie de jouer. Je préfère jouer deux ou
trois tournois puis me reposer chez moi,
quitte à me prendre deux ou trois jours off.
Mais quand je reprends, je le fais à fond. »
Et ça marche. Depuis le début de l’année,
l’Argentin n’a participé qu’às ix tournois .
Pour une somme probante de résultats:
victoire à Estoril, demi-finales à l’Open d’Australie,
Miami et Rome, et huitièmes de finale à Indian Wells
et Monte-Carlo.


Les plages de repos imaginées par le
numéro 3 mondial lui permettent bien souvent
de se déconnecter totalement de l’exigeant
monde du tennis professionnel. À la
fin du mois d’avril par exemple, entre
Monte-Carlo et Estoril, il est retourné dans
sa région, à Cordoba. Il ne pouvait manquer
l’événement de l’année pour tout Cordouan
qui se respecte : la sixième étape de laCoupe
du monde de rallye sur ses terres. Cette
année, ce passionné de moteurs et de
bolides a même pu vivre la compétition de
l’intérieur. Il est en effet l’un des propriétaires
d’une écurie argentine de rallye, la
Tango Rally Team. « C’est important pour
moi d’avoir ce genre de projet. Je prépare
déjà l’après-tennis. J’ai vingt-quatre ans, et
je pense pouvoir atteindre mon apogée
vers vingt-sept, vingt-huit ans. Après, il sera
temps de tourner la page. D’ici là, j’aimerais
bien gagner la Coupe Davis, et au moins un
tournoi du Grand Chelem. Je suis persuadé
que j’ai ma chance partout. Et pourquoi pas
à Paris ? Tout est possible. » Qu’on se le
dise, s’il en est un qui peut brouiller les
cartes et priver Roland-Garros d’un duel
Federer-Nadal, c’est bien David le blond,
le plus heureux des joueurs argentins.

Steely Nalbandian battles through on historic Sunday
By Araz Gulekjian
Sunday, May 28, 2006

Third seed David Nalbandian waltzed into the history books on his way to a 6-2 7-6(5) 6-4 win over Switzerland's Stanislas Wawrinka on Court Suzanne Lenglen, Sunday.

The 24-year-old Argentine overcame a stiff challenge by Wawrinka to move into the second round of the tournament, which started on a Sunday for the first time ever in Grand Slam history.

Nalbandian took close to three hours to close out the match, managing 31 winners to Wawrinka's 41, and connecting on 54 per cent of his first serves.

The Argentine, a semifinalist here in 2004, raced out of the starting blocks behind searing groundstrokes. He leapt to a 4-0 lead before taking the first set four games later.

Despite struggling with an inconsistent serve and without as much depth or bite to his shots, Wawrinka nevertheless found his range towards the end of the second set. He threaded a spate of wicked forehand drives to draw even at 6-6, before Nalbandian stepped up a gear to secure the set with a forehand approach winner.

The Argentine, a runner-up at Wimbledon in 2002, experiend a momentary hickup when he conceded his serve in the crucial seventh game. But he stood strong, breaking right back and earning the victory with a backhand crosscourt winner.

He now meets the winner of the match between Richard Gasquet and Yeu-Tzuoo Wang.

Gasquet can be difficult. David needs to be on his best and most concentrated form and not assume anything...Gasquet is at home and sometimes this can be difficult for David....but I expect him to win...he better!!!

Hopefully he will play this like it is an "away" Davis Cup and have the same focus he does for those difficult matches.

VAMOS DAVID!!
