Nalbandian preparing for Wimbledon


Injury hit Argentine David Nalbandian has said that he intends to be physically fit and ready for a return to Wimbledon as he sets his sights on competing once again at The Championships starting on June 21.

Nalbandian was forced to pull out of Roland Garros this year because of a hamstring injury and has featured in only five events this year since recovering from a recent hip operation that forced him to miss much of last season.

Under the guidance of his medical team Nalbandian, 28, who surprised everyone with an incredible run to the 2002 final in his first Wimbledon campaign, has made the decision not to accept an invitation to play in the ATP 250 grass court event held at The Queens Club in a bid to be 100% ready and able for a return to Grand Slam action on the lawns of SW19.

The popular Argentine said, “I am very focused on my recovery, I am training in double shifts to try to play Wimbledon.”

    C’mon David! Grass really suits you, and I expect you to do a great job this year at SW19!
    I’d love to finally see a Grand Slam final between Federer and Nalbandian, wouldn’t it be great to have them both competing for the title at Wimbledon?

    Hopefully the Wimbledon Singles will produce 2 First Time Winners. Tennis will benefit from New Major Champions. There has more to offer than Federer, Nadal, Henin and the Williams Sisters.
