NALBANDIAN REMINISCES ABOUT HIS PLAYING DAYS

Retired tennis star David Nalbandian has shared details of his playing career as he reminisces.


He disclosed that he played many key games with injuries. The star, who retired four years back, revealed that he played the 2004 French Open semis with injury.

He defeated the then top ranked players in Gustavo Kuerten and Marat Safin on the route to the last four but his injuries prevailed as he succumbed 6-3, 7-6(5), 6-0 against Gaston Gaudio.

“I played with a torn abdomen. But I think that Gaston was playing very well, and especially on the clay, a surface which always affects me more,” he said.

She said she was oblivious that the drug was added to the list of banned substance in 2016 by the Anti Doping Agency. The drug is not approved for sale in the United States, and it helps her increase oxygen flow to her heart.

As she returned the biggest questions were the issue of her return after a long time out and her travails during the appeal. There were rumours that the focus of any interview would be the game but so many questions needed answers. Ahead of the game, top stars like Caroline Wozniacki and Angelique Kerber asked that Sharapova not get a wild card for the event and Sharapova’s agent blasted them. Sharapova also put the ITF on blast for not publicizing the banning of meldonium. Continue reading →
