Delpo and Nalbandian want medals for Argentina

Argentine tennis players, Juan Martin Del Potro and David Nalbandian, were interviewed by Argentine press during their preparation for the 2012 London Olympics and both want to bring home some medals.

Del Potro, who will compete in singles and mixed doubles with Gisela Dulko, said that winning a medal would be as good as winning a Grand Slam tournament.

"Undoubtedly, to win a medal would be a great achievement, a marvellous, beautiful and historic achievement ... considering the quality of my rivals. It would be almost like winning a Grand Slam," Delpo commented.

He also thinks it will be "a unique experience, because it's something that happens (only) every four years."

Nalbandian French Open Press Conference | Day 2 May 28th 2012


Nalbandian French Open Press Conference | Day 2 May 28th 2012

Q. I wanted to know something. What are the conclusions that you would draw from this match? Do you think you could have played differently?
DAVID NALBANDIAN: Well, my conclusions of course are not that good. I didn't play well at all. These things do happen, you know, unfortunately. I have no idea whatsoever about the way I played, nor about the score, by the way.
It would have been very important, of course, for me to win this year. I could have won more points, but we'll see what comes next.

Q. You had not played during Roland Garros for a while. Now, this year you could play but the draw not that good. Would you say that the match was not good for you or was not the right day?
DAVID NALBANDIAN: Well, I always wanted to play here, but in the recent past I couldn't because I was injured. That's the reason why this time I thought I was ready for it and I could play.

So what else? What's the reason? Well, of course I missed my match, or rather I lost it. I don't feel that good, you see. I have my ups and downs during the match. I can win one match and lose the other one. And even during one match I have my ups and downs.
Finding explanations is always something very difficult. I have not won that many matches this year.
