Estoril Final: Federer vs. Davydenko. WWW?

Most people thought this would be the final as long as Denko didn't tank along the way. Who's going to take this tomorrow?

Hopefully Koyla, but I do smell the faintest whiff of tanking on the air.

Seriously though it will more or less depend on whether Davydenko can handle Federer's slice because that shot of Federer has destroyed Davydenko on many occasions in the past.

Federer isn't playing great tennis, Davydenko seems to be in great form: therefore I feel Federer should win this one in maybe three tight sets

Kolya would have to be pretty retarded to tank away a final...no one in their right mind does that.

I echo Loco.

Re: Estoril Final: Federer vs. Davydenko. WWW?

Davydenko in two I think. If he plays like he did today even Roger at his best is only going to win that match because of his mental strength and right now he is well below top level. If it is close I think Federer will be able to clinch it at the big moments but if he plays like HE did today then there won't be any big moments because he will be destroyed.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Based on DDenko previous matches against Federer and on Federer recent performances, could be either one

But koyla did play better than Fed today.

Re: Estoril Final: Federer vs. Davydenko. WWW?

Davydenko to win and join Roddick with victories over world top 3 players this year; Federer, Nadal and Djokovic.

It's now or never for Davydenko. If he doesn't beat Federer now he will never beat him...
