David's next tournament will be the indoor event at Stockholm where, being a former champion, he has apparently received a wildcard.
I'll quote from two new articles...
Clarin.com has received confirmation from the player's camp that David has officially withdrawn from both tournaments. (...)
Nalbandian reportedly prefers to avoid the strain of the Asian swing in order to be well prepared for the indoor part of the season, where has had good results.
According to Canch Llena, David's spokesman Ballero cites "exhaustion" as the reason for pulling out...
His spokesman told canchallena.com that Nalbandian grew physically more and more exhausted during the US swing (Washington, Toronto and Cincinnati) and that he intends to get into top form for the part of the season that's his best: the European indoor swing, where he won four of the 11 titles in his career.Just to put this into perspective - David has played only 8 tournaments this season (and 3 Davis Cup ties), the rest of the time he was either out with muscular problems or pausing. You should think that he'd want to play, now that he's fit again and free from injuries... But apparently not really.
Here's David's first and so far only statement (from the official site):
I'm going to concentrate on the European indoor swing, which culminates in the Paris Masters in mid-November.
