Argentina's injury-plagued David Nalbandian snapped a 19-month title drought by winning the Legg Mason Tennis Classic final Sunday, August 8 in Washington DC. Nalbandian beat eighth-seeded Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus, 6-2, 7-6 (4), becoming the first player ranked outside the top 100 to win an ATP title this year. In addition to the $262,000 he collected for his 11th career title, Nalbandian is projected to surge 72 spots in the rankings-from 117 to 45. (Photo by Jeff Malet)
