David Does It Again

Less than two weeks after winning the Madrid Masters, David NALBANDIAN has done it again. This time he defeated World No.1 Roger FEDERER in the Paris Masters 6-4 & 7-6 in the third round.

The result evened the series between the two 8-8 and ended FEDERER's streak of reaching the final in eight straight tournaments -- going back to May.

"Well, it's different," NALBANDIAN said. "Over there (in Madrid) it's a little faster. FEDERER's the No. 1 in the world," NALBANDIAN said. "You always have to be at 100 percent. I was, just like in Madrid."

NALBANDIAN wasted five set points by shanking balls long or into the net.

After beating Federer in Madrid, NALANDIAN was eliminated in the first round of last week's event in Basel, Switzerland. The week before Madrid, he was eliminated in the second round in Vienna.

He next plays fifth-seeded David FERRER of Spain.

Some NBA News

Though the statistic may not be that attractive to speak of, in many ways Luis SCOLA’s contribution was crucial in ensuring that the Houston Rockets came away with a 106-95 win against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City.

With both YAO Ming and Chuck HAYES having foul trouble earlier in the game, SCOLA was called upon to boost the Rocket’s game.

Eventually he posted his debut points and finished off the game with 7 points, 9 rebounds, 1 assist & a steal.

Good for Argentine with the Armenian last name. I wish he would win a GS. But as long as Roger or Nadal are around it is not going to be easy.
