Notable stories[edit]

Nalbandian's achievements[edit]

David Nalbandian won his second career Masters Series tournament, one week after his victory in Madrid, defeating again ATP No. 1 Roger Federer and No. 2 Rafael Nadal on his way to the title. Theories behind Nalbandian's resurgence abound, his new coach and diet, his overcoming of abdominal, back and leg injuries and of the death of a family member all being described as possibly being behind his upturn in fortune. Nalbandian became the first player to win the MadridParis double since Marat Safin in 2004, the first player to defeat both Federer and Nadal twice each while they held the top two spots, and the first player to defeat both in a final.
