heh, expected.

Nadal career prediction: 6 RG, 2 Wimbledon, 1 Australian Open, 1 US Open, 2 Master Cup, 20 Master Series, 65 titles.
(Predicted before RG 2008 when he had 3xRG)

Shocking.

No grasscourt warmup tournament and a first round loss.

Stunning result.

Davydenko remains a grass court mug. He will need a big summer hardcourt season to salvage this dissappointing year. Miami aside he has been mostly dreadful this year with his slam results in particular standing out. If he fails to make the US Open semis it would be the first time since 2004 when he didn't make one slam semi.

This is why Wimby is right to adjust the seeds. Davydenko is lucky that the grass season is so short.

Davydenko doesn't care about this. He has a ton of points potentially to pick up on clay in the coming weeks. This is good news for him as he has time to prepare for that portion of the season rather than waste his time on grass.

Davydenko has been pretty poor in terms of GS performances this year, while he's never seemed capable of taking out the top players in the GS, he's usually been pretty consistent in his results at the GS, except for Wimbledon ofcourse

Wait a second - didn't CD say that the clay preparation before Wimbly made Denko a threat?

Need ideas for a new signature...
