When I checked into the small, family-run hotel where I was staying, I had a little chat with the owner, who turned out to be a fellow tennis fan. So I confessed that the sole reason for my visit to Bamberg was not the German Davis Cup team - but a certain Mr. Nalbandian. And though he was a bit surprised, he agreed that "Nalbandian, well, he is really good..."
- And Davis Cup David was once again really, really good.
It's one thing to report David's Davis Cup shenanigans. But seeing it all live, witnessing the intensity and just how seriously he takes those matches - that's a different story... Well, it definitely was an experience for me. And a perfect start into the new Davis Cup year for David and the rest of the team.
