The recently retired Juan Ignacio Chela confirms to minutouno.com that fellow Argentines David Nalbandian and Juan Martin del Potro “don’t like each other, it’s a reality.” Nalbandian and del Potro have been involved in disputes during Davis Cup.

“I think they should address it as two professionals, not get into it with the other and have respect,” Chela said. “And when they go on court, to think as a group, give everything, and make Davis [Cup] priority… Tennis is very individual and it is always difficult to put together a team, everyone takes a side. David and Juan Martin are the most important [players], but they will never be friends. Usually players do not talk to other players.”
