David appeared on the TyC Sports show "Gol de Medianoche" on Tuesday, July 28th (thanks, Tamar). And this time, there's a video clip of David on the show (thanks, tennisace).
The problem is that there's a constant beeping noise on the audio track of that clip, which makes it really difficult to understand anything. I had a look at the original clip on the TyC Sports website but the audio on that one isn't any better. At least, there are two articles about the interview, both containing quotes (one from TyC Sports, the other from La Voz), shedding some light on what David was saying. Once more, he mostly spoke about the Davis Cup.
Here's my attempt at combining both articles and their quotes:
David Nalbandian said that for those players whose priority is their obligations on the international circuit "it is better not to play Davis Cup".As for what he said in the interview apart from the quotes above (which are in the clip), I hope that Tamar will make another transcript... :)
"For most players it's more about hard work than something they enjoy," said Nalbandian, while noting that the Davis Cup is not only demanding because of its schedule. "It's damaging, the constant change of surface and those moments moments of the year when it [Davis Cup] takes place."
Regarding the failure of Argentina in terms of [having a fixed] doubles, Nalbandian said that "it's possible to win, not having a strong and fixed doubles". However, he recalled some situations that happened to him and admitted that "for those who have to play on all three days of the tie it's very tough".
About what it means for him to play Davis Cup he remarked that "if you represent the country, everything is different. From being a young boy on, you play for yourself, to make a name for yourself, and you play for your coaches and team. But playing Davis Cup, you're committed to defending the flag."
The Davis Cup final loss to Spain is still present in Nalbandian's memory and it seems impossible to forget about it. "The wound will never close. It hurts even more than the final in Russia . It's difficult to assimilate and to look ahead, but those are the results and there are no others," he concluded.
About his physical state and the recent operation on his hip, Nalbandian said with some trepidation that "nobody can assure you of anything, because it is a new and delicate injury."
"I know that when I return, I will step on the court being afraid until I can get all of that out of my head."
