Nalbandian against Chardy, second Step in Paris
Due to rain, Roland Garros has been delayed. This is why David Nalbandian will be playing his second match on Thursday against the French Jeremy Chardy, a 21-year-old boy who usually plays in challenger tournaments and is now ranked 145 in the world. The French player is 1.87 meters tall (6.2 feet approx.); he is right-handed and turned pro in 2006. They have faced each other once: it was in Estoril in 2006 when the man from Cordoba won in the fourth round 6-1 and 7-6 (0). Three matches later, David won tournament. Being David the favorite, we should not underestimate the French man: this year Chardy has defeated the Spaniards Ramirez Hidalgo and Marcel Granollers and played remarkably against his fellow compatriots Gael Monfils and Julien Benneteau.
