The Argentine is known for his smooth two-handed backhand and unrealized potential. David Nalbandian reached his only Grand Slam final at Wimbledon in 2002, has made it to the semis of the other three, and led his country to the Davis Cup final in 2008. In 2007, Nalbandian won back-to-back Masters titles in Madrid and Paris. Nalbandian underwent right hip surgery on May 13, 2009 in Spain and missed the rest of the season, finishing outside of the top 50 for the first time since his rookie pro season in 2000. Returning to action in 2010, Nalbandian was a 117th-ranked wild card when he beat Marcos Baghdatis in the Washington, DC final to claim his first title on American soil, embarking on a career-best 11 match winning streak that ended with a Toronto quarterfinal loss to Andy Murray. Nalbandian defeated six Top 25 players during that streak.
