David is the Focus of Attention because of the Davis.
The series against Argentina and Russia for the semifinals of the Davis Cup is near (to be played between 19th and 21st this month), and as in the last six years, the expectations will be focused on David and in what conditions he reaches the series. On this topic, Alberto “Luli” Mancini, Argentine captain, explained: “It is probable that in this series, more than ever before, David won´t be in the doubles. But we still have to see how he performs on the first day. We are considering the possibility of withdrawing him from the match on Saturday”. “David is better after his injury in the back, he has not suffered from any pain for a month and is adding hours on court with his training this week”, he added. The man from Cordoba has never missed the doubles because when being the home team Argentina was almost always at a 2-0 advantage on Friday. On Saturday, David and his fellow team member defined the series. But this time he will try to protect his physical condition for Sunday because the series will be neck to neck. “During these two weeks he will get ready. In the Davis, Nalbandian finds a motivation bonus which will make him reach in good conditions the match against Russia".
