David Nalbandian – a star of yesteryear has a chance of winning his first ATP title since 2010 here at the Aegon Championships at the Queens's Club in London, following the exits of all of the top players barring the enigmatic Marin Cilic. What stands in his way is young Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov.
World No. 39 David Nalbandian is a former Wimbledon finalist, showing that he knows how to play on grass. His all court game is really good, with backhand being his strength. He has struggled so far in 2012 and has a 20-11 win-loss record. He struggled in the opening round here and followed it with a strong, straight sets victories.
Against Edouard Roger-Vasselin in the pre-quarters, Nalbandian had an epic 3 setter that went down to the wire, before the Argentine could close the match. He was once again stretched to three sets in the quarterfinal against Xavier Malisse which he won 4-6,7-6,6-4. Fatigue might just have a role to play in the match as the 30 year-old isn't getting any younger.
His opponent today, young Bulgarian star Grigor Dimitrov has had quite the run to the final. He defeated marathon man - Nicolas Mahut in the pre-quarters in straight sets. He has looked in great shape at the tournament, which is something he has clearly worked on since March as he dropped to a world ranking of 102 at the time. He is now No.72 in the world and has a win-loss record of 12-8.
These two players have never played one another before, and TennisEarth predicts a win for the Argentine veteran.
