It was a nice match that David and Nicolas Massu played at the Movistar Arena in Santiago yesterday. And it really was a match, and not just a bit of hit and giggle. Except when David almost hit the Chilean president with a ball and was "reprimanded" with a smile and a wag of the presidential finger.
But it also became clear that David wasn't lying about the problems with his shoulder. I thought it became clear that he has made the right decision.
So, after Santiago yesterday, tonight David will be playing in front of his home crowd in Córdoba. And on court with him will be Rafael Nadal.
More later, ahead of the match. And more photos on the Photo Page.
