Back to Tennis...?

(Inés Gorrochategui Tennis Academy)


















Update (04/06)
With the latest press release, published by David's PR department yesterday (thanks, Guille), David informs us that he "keeps working on his rehabilitation every day" by means of "the exercises that his team is showing him how to do". And he's "confident" that he'll be "able to keep to the schedule" set up by the doctors and his team.


They're back home in Unquillo, David and Victoria and little Sossie (an Armenian name they chose simply because it's short and they like it; source). And right now, there surely are other things on David's mind than tennis. Via the official site's Twitter he thanked "all my fans for the displays of affection they have sent me at this very special moment in my life". But apart from that - no news.

Therefore, how David's recovery is coming along, whether he thinks he might have a shot at playing the Davis Cup semifinal, when he'll take up practicing again on the courts pictured above, and whether or not the exhibition in November will be his farewell - I can't say. Because David doesn't say.

In the past, when faced with pauses like this I usually tried to keep posting, tried to keep the blog going. As in writing more than just - there's no news. But not this time around, I'm tired of speculating.

  4. Hi guys! I was on a road trip in the South of Florida and I was able to read the blog on my Iphone but not post. It seems that David became a father of a little girl on the same day my brother has his little girl too.
    I understand how you feel Julia and I can't blame you!

    1. You'd think I should be used to it by now. But sometimes, the sheer futility of what I'm trying to do with this blog still gets to me.
      Anyway - welcome to the club of aunts. :)

    3. Thanks. Well, I've always tried my best, regardless of David's continued attempts to remain intangible and mysterious...
      I joined the club of aunts last autumn. So I'm still a bit of a novice. ;)

    4. Awww! a niece or a nephew? Basically your job is to spoil them and give them the things their parents wouldn't give them and then the parents get mad at you but you don't care ;)

    5. Nephew. :) And I'd spoil him more often if I could but my sister lives in Britain, so I have to make do with Skype (and making funny faces for him). But they'll soon come to visit. :)

  5. Have you seen this: http://www.lmcordoba.com.ar/nota/130131_nalbandian-sigo-con-rehabilitacion-todos-los-dias-

    Probably it doesnt add much but it says that he continues his recovery every day and that he is doing the exercises that were given to him in order to recover.

  6. I saw a tweet by Miche last night, about David's recovery apparently going according to plan. And I was hoping that the press release would include a bit more info. Because what this one says is exactly what those press releases always say...
    But at least it gives me the chance to post a little update.

  8. Yeah, there was a stream for their QF match against Janowicz/Bednarek and I watched a bit of that. Great job by both of them, especially Cuevas after a pause of almost two years. Hope they make the final.
