Ancic was too passive in the second and the third set. Davydenko deserved to win as he played some awesome shots. His net game was just superb tonight. I was cheering for Mario, but Davydenko completely deserved to win. Congrats.
ancic looked completely exhausted towards the end, but you can always count on him to keep fighting. kolya played some of the best tennis i've ever seen him play, especially up at net. with the way fed and nadal have played, i think he has a shot at the title
my favorite was the worst number 3 player in the world
When Davydenko is hitting the ball well, it's just great to watch him...
Gratz to Kolya.
Yep...Wanted Ancic to win but Kolya totally deserved it. 48 winner and only 18 from ancic. Kolya didnt let Ancic be aggressive, eventhough he should have come to the net more often. He was tooooo good today, besides that semi choke.
Amazing , that wasn't Kolya out there, he won the match practically with volleying, net play and even serving (except those chokes at the end). Mario with a poor strategy, he let Davydenko holding his rhythm and when he does that his ground strokes are unstoppable.
Great match from Davydenko, especially the second and third set. He could have closed out the match earlier but still great effort from him. Ancic great effort from him as well but Davydenko was just better when it mattered.
Davydenko did all the work, he got the breaks from Mario, he gave back to him after that. He was dictating every point from start till end. Absolutely deserved win. Too bad Mario wasn't smart enough to try to mix things up with slices and change of pace. Those middle high top spin FH's and BH's suited Kolya so perfectly.
