David Nalbandian of Argentina is besieged by autograph hounds. Ranked 117th, Nalbandian beat eighth-seeded Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus, 6-2, 7-6 (4), in the Legg Mason Tennis Classic final Sunday in Washington, 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. August 8, 2010. (Photo by Jeff Malet)
