I'm from Argentina, I did not really think that Nalbandian would achieve so high in this Wimbledon but he's playing great!!
Has anyone seen him play? He has an spectacular backhand and attacks the net very well. I do enjoy very much watching his game.

GO David!! You can beat Malisse in the SF!!!!:bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

i wish that we in the USA knew. We have been shown exactly 0 of Nalbandian. Trying to remember seeing him in the FO. We saw not even one point of him playing anyone in this Wimbledon. It would be nice to see the semis and know about him, but we don't because we have to depend on NBC.

I finally got to see him against Lapentti on NBC today when they ran out of anyone else to who.

He almost choked the match away, but hung on in the end.

I watched him earlier this year against Grosjean in a clay court Masters Series - not sure which one - and he coughed up three match points or so.

But untill the choke, I was very impressed with his play, on clay at least.

He is very talented, the little I saw of him. He also seems comfortable on the grass. didn't he win a juniors doubles title at Wimbledon? Go David!:)

I'm not sure selesfan..

This is his first grass court tennis tourney at the ATP level though :o

The last guy to reach the WImbledon semis at first chance - John McEnroe.

Am I think only one who thinks he is kind of cute?

i can't believe he's only 20. he looks older up close too -- it's not a camera thing. but i love his tennis and i hope he brings a different game against Malisse. Argie! Argie! Argie! ai! ai! ai! :eek:
