Argentine David Nalbandian started his preparation for the Davis Cup final in Geneva, and his doctors said that he is "in a perfect physical and mental state."

"He is very well, all the analyses that we have carried out came out fine. He is perfectly fit," said Angel Ruiz Cotorro, the player's personal doctor.

Nalbandian joined the rest of the Argentine Davis Cup team in Geneva on Wednesday, with captain Alberto Mancini and players Juan Chela, Agustin Calleri, Jose Acasuso and Guillermo Canas as a substitute.

He arrived in Barcelona from Shanghai on Monday, and underwent numerous studies until Wednesday morning. He hardly touched the racquet, but kept working on his daily physical fitness routine.

The Swiss city is expected to help the team to adapt to the cold and fast surface that Argentina will face in the Davis Cup final against Russia next week in Moscow.

Argentina is seeking its first Davis Cup trophy. The last time it reached the final was in 1981, when they lost to the United States.
