David got into History on Green Grass
In June 2002, David Nalbandian, the man from Unquillo, was just 20 years old. Some of his results had already made him appear on the front page of European newspapers, but he was at that time ranked 28th. It was that (28th) the pre-qualification for his first Wimbledon, his debut in the Cathedral of world tennis. He passed his debut in four sets, winning to the Spaniard David Sánchez 6-4, 6-3, 4-6 and 7-5. In the second round, he would have played against the American Pete Sampras if the Swiss George Bastl hadn’t left him out in five sets. For David, Bastl was just a formality: triple 6-2. "I prefer servers", he said about the Australian Wayne Arthurs, who he defeated 6-4, 7-6, 2-6 and 7-6, making his way to the second round in London. In quarterfinals, he had more difficulties defeating the Ecuadorian Nicolás Lapentti: 6-4, 6-4, 4-6, 4-6 and 6-4; and suffered even more against the Belgian Xavier Malisse in semifinals, before winning 7-6, 6-4, 1-6, 2-6 and 6-2, during a match interrupted by rain and full of excitement. That was the day when the famous picture of him kneeling and crying on the grass was taken. This way, he reached the final. It would have been fair for him not to make his debut in the main stadium right in the crucial match. His first time in the mythical court of All England was against Lleyton Hewitt. The dream of any tennis player is to defeat the world’s number one, in the final of Wimbledon, the Cathedral of tennis. It was not possible, he lost 6-1, 6-3 and 6-2, but David got into history and has never left that place.
