News From David (Himself)

(Inés Gorrochategui Academy)

For the first time since the Davis Cup semifinal in September, David talked to members of the Argentine media today, meeting them at the Inés Gorrochategui Academy in Villa Allende.
There'll be more about what David had to say tomorrow, when the articles get published.
But one of the journalists who spoke to David, Guillermo Poggi for TN, tweeted some of his statements, some basic facts:

- David will play all of the 2013 season. Then he'll decide what to do (sounds familiar).
- He wants to play the Golden Swing and the Davis Cup first-round tie against Germany.
- On that tie, i.e. the surface used will depend whether he'll travel to Australia.
  If the tie is going to be played on clay he won't play the Australian Open.
- And he has recovered from his injury - though that much was clear from his polo stint.
(Sources: 1, 2, 3 & 4.)

So - another season with David. And one that will apparently be shaped by the Davis Cup, even more so than already before.

More tomorrow.

  1. good news, and an official confirmation by David, yay!
    and you're right Julia, let's hope David's passion for polo won't cause him some injury...

    I don't think he'll go to Australia, chances are Argies will choose clay so...
    but we've been prepared to the fact that his schedule will depend on Davis Cup schedule, so it's understandable :)
