Davydenko injured, in doubt for DC SF's against Germany

Pray for Davydenko
Russia tennis player number one suffers from discomfort on one of his wrists and may not be able to face Germany at Davis Cup semifinals.
19-09 | 12:48 hs. It is still uncertain whether Nikolai Davydenko will play the series against the German team, which will take place from September 21 to 23 in Moscow.

According to the digital newspaper gazeta.ru, the Russian tennis player, who won Davis Cup last year, twisted one of his wrists and couldn’t keep on practising.

World number 4 had a similar injury last season which kept him away from the courts for several weeks.

In case Davydenko can’t play the Germans, the Russian team’s captain, Shamil Tarpischev, may use Mikhail Youzhny, Igor Andreev and Dmitri Tursunov.

The Russia-Germany semi-final will take place in Olimpiski stadium, the same place where last year the locals defeated Argentina 3-2 in the final, achieving for the second time in history the Silver Salad Bowl.


A post that deserves to be on MTF Hall of Fame soon:

Youzhny and Andreev look like they might be playing singles.

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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

How ironic. The iron man who plays week in and week out is suddenly injured in the one tournament where there is NO MONEY to be made. Shucks!

That would be a big blow for the Russians given that Youzhny has a complex when it comes to playing Kohly; Andreev is only slight favourite over Haas imo; Tursunov would find it tough to beat either German singles player.

The Germans should already have the doubles sewn up, so it isn't impossible that they can build on 1pt.

no betting trends spiked on the day of his injury were there?
