Davydenko: "Wimbledon is the most boring tournament in the world"

http://www.tennisinfo.be/nieuws/4266...n+is+saai.html

My translation: "It's the most boring tournament in the world. Apart from tennis there is hardly anything to do. Luckily we hired a house in the city because there's nothing to do elsewhere. But still, all we do here is yawning."

Joachim Johansson / Ivo Karlovic / Andy Roddick / Ernests Gulbis / John Isner / Chris Guccione / Feliciano Lopez / Jo-Wilfried Tsonga / Ivan Ljubicic / Mario Ancic / Michael Llodra / Gilles Muller / Xavier Malisse / Max Mirnyi / Nicolas Mahut / Robin Söderling / Frank Dancevic / Olivier Rochus / Robert Kendrick

Re: Davydenko: "Wimbledon is the most boring tournament in the world"

Davydenko isn't used to spending this much time in London.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

PMK is very interesting, but I wouldn't expect you to see this.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Davydenko: "Wimbledon is the most boring tournament in the world"

nice way for us to pass middle Sunday and a washed-out tournament

"There's a fine line between getting pumped up
and waking a sleeping giant"

I'd rather give out good rep points than respond to dumbass threads

Being called fangirl/fanboy is not a compliment.

Never say such things about Kolya. His personality is subtle, that's all.

Nah, he will be more bored in Gstaad than in Sopot.

There is only so much Lindt a man can eat and he is only going there so Irina can buy some watches.

Sopot maybe a few things, but it's not boring.
