Today David will receive another honorary award for his career, this time at the Premios Olimpia, the most important sports awards in Argentina, voted for by the association of sports journalists.
More about that and also about the latest TV interview (with Martin Vasallo Arguello for Segundo Saque/FoxSports; I previously linked some photos) tomorrow.
Here's a brief interview David gave ESPN, filmed at the Clarin event on Monday.
He hasn't had the time yet for a complete analysis but he thinks he had a very good career, long but also tough. That it all ended in Argentina, with Rafa and Nole, was the icing on the cake and he's happy he could finish his career like that. He's much more relaxed now and his life follows a different rhythm. Had it been up to him he would've played a little longer but the shoulder wouldn't allow it and it was in a pretty poor state after the exhibition matches.
That Rafa will play the Copa Claro in February is very fortunate and it's great for tennis in Argentina to have a player of Rafa's stature in the country again. The players and the crowd will be very excited, it's spectacular that he'll be back.
During his "ten or twelve" years of playing Davis Cup he had lots of different teammates and shared many things with them. He was able to give some of them advice, some tips to help with the job of being a tennis player. It's more than a task he fulfilled than his legacy and one he likes to remember.
Last night in Buenos Aires David received another award for his career, this time from Clarin, the Argentine newspaper/news site, as part of their awards ceremony for Argentine athletes.
Apparently, David took the opportunity to say a few words about the Davis Cup. Perhaps also because Delpo was present as well (he won the main award).
Apart from that, some of you may remember the rumours earlier this year about an exhibition match between David and Lleyton Hewitt. On Saturday the actual exhibition took place, with Lleyton Hewitt and Delpo. Whereas David was at the polo, at the last of the three events that constitute the most important competition of the sport, the "Triple Corona". And afterwards he went to celebrate with the leader of the winning team, his friend Adolfo Cambiaso.
