Hello (again) London!

David arrived at London Heathrow this morning, having been on a flight together with Delpo and the Argentine male field hockey team. And by now, he has obviously moved into his accomodation at the Olympic Village and has had his first lunch there.
From Pico's Facebook (from which the photo above has also been taken):

- And that's exactly what they went on to do. Despite having arrived in London only this morning (after a 13-hour flight), David and also Delpo joined the other Argentine players for a first training session at Wimbledon.
For David, that meant practicing together with Charly Berlocq on Court 9, one of the courts players can train on at the AELTC (two more pics on the Photo Page).

Tomorrow, at 11am local: the draw ceremony for singles and doubles.


  1. oh yaaaaay thank you Julia!!
    I love their Argentina shirts <3

  2. Very nice! They are looking damn good, the Argentinian boys :-)!

  3. I wonder if weak/strong the doubles field is. If even a 'weak' and 'inexperienced' doubles player like Federer could win gold in Beijing, then Nalby could have a chance to win a medal.

    I hope the best-of-3-set format will favour Nalby in the singles competition (of course he needs luck in the draw), and he could have a surprising run as in Indian Wells, winning a bronze medal (my wildest dream!!!)

  4. Just saw LiveScoreHunter will have live streams for the tennis in London. Not a big surprise. Looks like they may have the draw, too. Can't tell for sure. Bravo in the U.S. and TSN in Canada also have tennis coverage. could be a fruitful link.

  5. Thanks. Well, I'll just link in the sidebar whatever streams can be found - in case there's coverage for David's matches.
