During the last couple of weeks, practically nothing was to be seen or heard of Mr. David Nalbandian. Now, there's at least visual proof that he's preparing for the European clay-court tournaments - as he was spotted, training at the Vilas Club in Buenos Aires. (Some more photos, taken during his training session yesterday, you can view here.)
With Belgrade due to start on Monday, I guess he'll be on his way to Serbia soon, probably already tomorrow. For although Novak Djokovic's withdrawal means a spot as the fourth seed and a first-round bye for David, there's also the doubles to think of.
According to Danny Miche, David will fly to Belgrade tomorrow, i.e. Friday. Also according to Miche, after Roland Garros David is going to play the same tournaments on grass like last year, which is to say Queen's Club and Wimbledon (plus the Boodles exhibition, probably).
