A Feeling of Discomfort in the Adductor Affected Nalbandian in Paris
In three hours and three minutes, the French Jeremy Chardy (the world 145) knocked out the man from Cordoba David Nalbandian 3-6, 4-6, 6-2, 6-2 and 6-2, in the second round of Roland Garros. The man from Unquillo won the first two sets but then a problem in the left adductor kept him from moving and the French made good use of his chance. In the first two sets, the difference in level was clear, but from the third onwards Chardy improved, took risks and built his victory with the unconditional support of his people. Because of the pain, David froze, unable to respond physically. He tried to recover in the fifth set when he broke and got a 2-0 result. By then, the French´s self-esteem was really high and his service was a lethal weapon. Then the surprise became the result. Argentine number one’s physical problems prevented the logical result from coming true.
