Like compatriot Coria, Nalbandian is a grand slam champion-in-waiting. A fierce competitor with a boxer's physique, the Argentine enjoyed his best season to date last year, finishing in the world's top 10 for the first time.

Has a surprisingly poor Roland Garros record considering his strengths. Was runner-up at Wimbledon in 2002 -- his first tournament on grass -- and a semi-finalist at the U.S. Open last September.

A keen fisherman, Nalbandian wears down opponents on court with his patient brand of baseline play.
