Lack of respect yet again...

...for Davydenko in the US. Dick Enberg: "He just seems to find his way into the second week" of Slams. Umm, excuse me? Seems to find his way? More like earns it by crushing all inferior competition in straights sets, match after match, Slam after Slam. Then Dick the dick made a comment about Davydenko not winning titles and choking in semis and finals, which isn't really that true at all. Look at Miami.

Thankfully Pat McEnroe defended Nikolay and noted that he hits the ball amazingly well, is one of the best returners, etc. but even the fact that ESPN2 covered boring ass Hewitt vs. Fish instead of Davydenko vs. Safin is a disgrace. Who cares if Fish is American? That match is on Court 3 for a reason - it's boring and neither dude knows what the hell they are doing on this surface. Even PMac admitted that this is NOT how to play clay court tennis, so why are we subjected to watching it? Meanwhile Davydenko is the #4 seed and Safin is a 2-time Slam champ with all the charisma in the world. Watching even one game of that match was a delight in comparison to Hewitt/Fish, because the Russians actually know how to rip the ball and play on clay.

Re: Lack of respect yet again...

dick enberg is a senile old fool, and the fascination of espn with mediocre second rate americans probably has something to do with pmac's influence.

Yeah, does any one understand the obsession ES had with Monfils and Horna? They really should have shown something else instead

Re: Lack of respect yet again...

I honestly can't believe that after the Henin-Hardenne fiasco at last year's US Open trophy ceremony that this senile old fool has the audacity to keep showing his crotchety old face. Either retire or someone please fire him.

Federer / Youzhny / Ancic / Raonic / Dancevic

i agree with everything you said except when you said that hewitt/fish is crap. hewitt is a 2-time slam champ just like safin and he knows how to play on the clay. don't forget he is also playing with a hip injury right now. hewitt in his prime would have staight set davedenko on clay. anyway, i think fish sucks on clay.

Re: Lack of respect yet again...

Looks like winning Miami didn't do much for Davydenko's rep. I guess when you're a whitey with no hair, you're a whitey with no hair. No getting around it.
