Rankings Update

A new week and a new ranking, outside the Top 20 now but he hasn't lost that much ground - David has dropped only 4 places and is now ranked #23 (with 1425 points; -180 from Monte Carlo but +20 from Montpellier, now included among his countable events). The other good news in this context is that David won't have any further points to defend for the rest of the clay-court swing, as well as on grass. So his ranking is "safe" for now, regardless of when and where he returns in the weeks to come.

- But when that will be is still a mystery. His name still is on the entry list for Madrid. But I guess Rome or Nice are probably more realistic. Of course I'll keep looking and as soon as I have more definitive news for you, I'll replace the "?" in the sidebar with what's going to be David's next, as well as his comeback tournament.

In other news - after his trip to Buenos Aires it looks like David will continue his recovery back home. As he's apparently planning to attend a polo exhibition in the Cordoba province, this week (where his friend Adolfo Cambiaso will be playing; source). And hopefully, that big step ahead David said he's expecting will come this week.
