Eurosport Davydenko Bashing LOL...

http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/241220...lops-year.html
Quote:
Nikolay Davydenko - Living proof that you can use statistics to prove anything; Davydenko is apparently the fifth-best player in the world, despite not making it further than the last eight of any tournament in 2008, and crashing out of Wimbledon in the first round. Add to that the match-fixing allegations and losing to Novak Djokovic in the season-ending Masters Cup final and it becomes apparent that the Russian has not enjoyed a vintage year. We'd cut him a bit more slack if he wasn't so boring.
W: ATP Masters Series Miami, Poertschach, Warsaw F: Estoril, Tennis Masters Cup SF: Doha, Dubai, ATP Masters Series Monte Carlo, ATP Masters Series Paris QF: Moscow

$2.3 million this year. What more do you want mate, really?

Re: Eurosport Davydenko Bashing LOL...

Davydenko is the Lendl of our time, if Federer didn't stop him from countless slams he could have a couple slams under his belt right now, I don't know what he should do to gain media attention and more fans though.

But Lendl won 8 grand slams!!

But I guess if consider the fact that he lost in 11 GS finals and 9 GS SFs, then he could have easily been the greatest player ever.

He would gain me as a fan if he retires today.

Re: Eurosport Davydenko Bashing LOL...

So Davydenko is boring?

Who's exciting then? Nadull and his boring ridiculous moonballing like a 12 year-old at his first tournament? Or Faker and his boring grinding game without any variation?

Re: Eurosport Davydenko Bashing LOL...

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer

Re: Eurosport Davydenko Bashing LOL...

the eurosport website is hosted by yahoo, that's enough for them to lose all and any credibility

Eurosport could at least be bothered to get its facts right in its hatchet jobs.

Re: Eurosport Davydenko Bashing LOL...

He trains hard, enters several tournaments, does not will them all of course, but is overall consistent. In other words, he’s a professional. So Eurosport
