Doha 1/4: Davydenko def Karlovic 7-6(4) 7-6(7)

In first set Davydenko was impressive until breaker, there Ivo had two times mini breaks but made only 1 of 5 first serves in . In second breaker made only 4 of 8 first serves in

Loss for the first set but Ivo continues his bad habit when he played few good matches without breaker he loses every time first breaker that he needs to play and also continues tragical tie break run started in the second part of last season .

Anyway good start of the year for Ivo. He must try keep it up this sort of form for longer time.

Tomorrow against Roger, Davydenko is favorite for me in this kind of form

Doha QF: Kolya d. Dr. Ivo 7-6, 7-6

Kolya played superb tennis, imo. In spite of the fact that the match was rather tense with the high speed Karlovic serves, Kolyia remained consistent as a machine. a couple of errors in the second set tiebreaker but he closed it out at the end.

Roger will definitely have to improve his game a lot if he wants to reach the final.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Since Wimbledone last year he won only 5 of 21 breakers .It's miracle how he beat somebody in that period

This Davydenko is probably fastest player on tour.

Kolya is the second favourite for the title after Rafa


Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

I don't mind what happens tomorrow between Fed and Kolya. Both of them are my favourite players and I think they're both capable of beating Nadal in the final. Perhaps it can even be said that Kolya has more chances against Parera than Federer.

Kolya is 4-4 vs. Parera and has won 3 of their last 4 encounters.

didn't watch this and aint sad about it. it is getting abit inevitable now ivo has the serve to get to the tie brekas, but lost his nerve to win them.

davy is on a roll, im picking him to beat fed again.

Davydenko is on course to beat Fed and Rafa on back to back tournaments... he plays really well

And about Ivo.. always the same story. Too bad on important points and poor tie-brakes,even he had chances
