David Nalbandian likely to undergo shoulder surgery in Barcelona

PanARMENIAN.Net - Argentina-based David Nalbandian will probably undergo a shoulder surgery in Barcelona. The player announced a decision to discontinue his tennis tour due to the constant pain in his right shoulder.

According to EatSleepSport, Nalbandian won’t return to Queen's Club for next month's AEGON Championships.

Nalbandian was disqualified from last year's final when he took on Marin Cilic. The Argentine stunned the crowd and those watching as he kicked an advertising board into a line judge's leg.

The incident was the subject of a police investigation and Nalbandian was forced to pay more than Ј40,000 in fines and forfeit his prize money from that tournament.

Nalbandian, a former Wimbledon finalist, insisted he was interested in a return but the 31-year-old doesn't qualify for automatic entry after he slipped down the rankings.

Croatian Cilic does return along with four-time champion Lleyton Hewitt, Bernard Tomic, Andy Murray, Tomas Berdych, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Juan Martin Del Potro.
