David Nalbandian to make comeback at Stockholm Open

PanARMENIAN.Net - Argentina-based David Nalbandian said he was hoping to return to the practice court this week.

Accompanied by his physio Claudio Galasso and supervised by his brother Javier, Nalbandian trained on the hardcourts at the Inés Gorrochategui Academy in Villa Allende, his usual training grounds when he's at home.

Ahead of the Davis Cup semifinal, the news came that David wouldn't be traveling to Shanghai for the Masters event, due to start in two weeks. Right now, his name is still on the entry list. But apparently, as reported before, he's not planning to play Shanghai but to make his comeback a week later at Stockholm, due October 15.

After that, David will be playing Valencia (apparently with a wildcard if there are no withdrawals; he still is the first alternate on the entry list at the moment), Nalbandian’s official fan blog reported.
