Perhaps you'll remember how the two of them caused some bewilderment among the press by training together ahead of the US Open last year, even though they were bound to meet in the third round - and did, eventually. But as David once described it, they've "become well acquainted" and I guess it's safe to say that they know each other and each other's game well enough.
Apart from that, the photos from this training session (more on the Photo Page) offer the first visual proof that David has indeed switched his clothes sponsor and is now wearing Topper. ->
Coming up tonight/tomorrow morning (Melbourne time): the Australian Open draw.
The starting time for David's match against Andy Murray has changed.
It's now scheduled as the second match of the day (after Fish vs Melzer), due to begin at around 12.30pm Friday local time (1.30am GMT; Thursday 8.30pm EST/10.30pm Argentina)
On a different note - Martin Jaite and Mariano Zabaleta just confirmed the team for the Davis Cup tie against Germany: David, Juan Monaco, Juan Ignacio Chela and Eduardo Schwank (source).
