David will face Federer in 3rd round...
He MUST first win the first 2 matches before worrying about Federer.

Hopefully he could post a huge upset and beat Federer? Have they ever met on grass? When was the last time Nalby beat Federer? 2007 in Paris Indoor?

Nalby always has the extra motivation to win when playing the top players like Federer.

His quarter of draw is pretty weak - I dont see Almagro / etc. could post a huge challenge. So if he could beat Federer, he could reach his first Grand Slam QF in half a decade!!! He could even have a chance to reach the SF since I dont see Ferrer / Tsonga are strong grass court players.

Nalby never met RF on grass, the last time he beat him was in Bercy 2007 (indoor, his best surface)
It could be great if beat this arrogant Rolex poseur in Wimbly...I'ld celebrate all night long...

An easy match for David. Reister is ranked 135. After he'll face either Serra or Haider Maurer who are not grass kings..then the big RF !!

In the second set too many errors, but perhaps he can build on his game of set one and get even better, so he may have chances! Vamos David!

I find that David currently is playing much weaker than 3-4 years ago. What is weaker? He does not "fight" enough... His reaction for return is too slow,
earlier he could easy return serves of Roddick and many other great Ace-makers...
They compared Dave's return with Agassi's return, and many fans foound he was better...
but now I do not see Dave's wish to win so much...
May be tennis now is not his favorite "thing" anymore, or this is because he is already aged?

I wish David "break" my doubts :)
try beat Federer now, David you could do it 8 times ;)

Agree with Stephan, his golden years are behind him.
Remember that he's 29 and had 3 surgeries (hip+hernia+adductors).
Perfectly normal to be slower after that

But we have an example to play even better after 29 years old, Federer...,
Andre Agassi, my most favorite tennis player (yes, he is the best of the best for me :)),
he won most his Grand Slams after he was 29 years old.
I cannot believe, but David still can do win a GS, if he want it.
Yes, first of all David has to wish it himselfs...
Nobody can help him here...We will just support him :)
