David got off to a Good Start on Hard Court
“King” David got off to a great start in the US Open. In his debut in the fourth Grand Slam of the year, Nalbandian crushed the Brazilian Marcos Daniel 6-1, 6-2 and 6-4, in one hour and 40 minutes. In the second round, he will also face an accessible opponent. It is Andrev Golubev, from Kazakhstan and 161st in the world ranking. The man from Cordoba has never faced his next opponent, who defeated yesterday the American Brendan Evans 6-4, 6-3 and 6-2. If Nalbandian beats his Asian rival, he may face the French Gael Monfils, who beat him in the Olympic Games in Beijing. On his perspectives for the US Open and the rest of the season, he stated: “The ideal thing would have been performing well in the Olympic Games and the US Open, but it was not the case. There are important commitments in the second part of the year and I am feeling better little by little. So I am optimistic”, he said.
