Hey guys , how are u ?
i really like Nalbandian's match .
So - an easy win for David. But one that was made very easy for him by Beck and his poor performance. Still, I think this match was perfect for David, as a chance to get used to playing on clay again and adapting his movement. Without really being tested. How he will fare against Youzhny in the second round - we'll see.
In any case it was great to see David's backhand working as well as it did today. With some of his cross-court winners drawing "oohs" and "aahs" from the crowd. He also served very well, very consistent and coming up with good serves in important moments. His forehand grew more stable as the match went on. And the 11 unforced errors in total David made speak of an overall solid performance. The only thing I was missing during this match was the sight of David coming to the net. Perhaps another indicator that above all, this match was about getting started, getting used to clay again.
