Thumbs down So, Davydenko gets a warning for "lack of best effort" while Nole pockets $750k?

I'm relying on reports from you guys here, but it sounds like Nole was completely disinterested.

Why, then, was he not warned, when the Tour was prepared to give Davydenko shit only a week ago, just because he served 10 double faults in 1.5 sets? :retard:

Double standards, or what? For once, I feel sorry for Davydenko, who seems to be the scapegoat in all of this.

Well yeah... Its weird. I mean this was just like against Moya some time ago. Sometimes Nole seems to tank matches, coz there are more important ones to come. Like TMC now.

Djokovic
Davydenko, Baghdatis, Tipsarevic, Wawrinka, Gulbis, Troicki, Kyrgios
Sharapova, Jankovic, Zvonareva, Kirilenko, Vesnina, Dokic, Bacsinszky, Jovanovski, Pironkova

It's been less than half an hour since the match occurred.

Don't be so upset, they have time to fine him if they deem it appropriate

I agree about the double standards. It was obvious that Novak's game was all about "lack of effort" today.

of course DJoke will get away with it

he can speak good English whilst Kolya struggles to put 2 words together

complete double standards

ATP now set a precedence and it should be same for all.

cant see it happening

They should have a Djokovic/Davydenko matchup. Loser takes all!

If they don't punish Djoke, but they punished Davydenko - it will mean that ATP is more idiotic than I previously thought. It was a complete crap by Novak, error after error, not running, not trying etc...

Davydenko is a known crook, he doesn't deserve the same rights.

He should be fined. It couldn't be more obvious that he just didn't care about winning today.

It's not the same because Davydenko is a fixer, he has no rights and noone will trust him.

But still tanking is such bullshit and Nole should get a nice fine.

Davydenko should improve his impersonating skills for avoiding getting fined..
