A Brief Update

(@inestenis)

After the Isner match and the two incidents (and the headlines those made in the press) things have been very quiet on the David-front for a couple of days. And while so far there's no news about the ITF fine and the appeal I can at least tell you that by now, David is back home and that he has taken up practicing on clay at the Ines Gorrochategui Acedemy in Villa Allende. In this case (the photo is apparently from today) with junior player Federico Nani.
Edit: A very brief clip of that training session you can watch here.

In other words, the preparations for the Davis Cup first-round tie against Germany have begun.

  3. For those who know their football - apparently, Philipp Petzschner (a big football fan) was asked on ESPN whether he thinks Delpo is like Messi. Petzschner: Del Potro is Riquelme, Nalbandian is Messi.

  4. Uhm, Delpo is like Palermo. David is like Riquelme.

  5. I think what he meant to say is that David is more of an artist. ;)

  6. Requelme is very talented but 'lazy' in the field.
    Palermo is 'grotesque' but effective in making goals.

  7. I think it was simply meant as a compliment. :)
