davydenko: ''federer and nadal have no life''

''Never one to make news with his mouth, Nikolay Davydenko held nothing back on the eve of the Australian Open. The veteran Russian even said that "it's only tennis" for Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.''

In a recent interview, Davydenko accused Federer and Nadal--among others--of thinking "only" about tennis.

"I have a good life," the sixth-ranked Russian explained. "It’s not only about tennis for me. Maybe I am not a champion like Nadal or Federer. These guys mostly think about tennis. For them, it’s only tennis; winning tournaments, winning a grand slam, dreaming maybe every day about it. I am not that guy, I am different."

"I don’t cry like Federer at winning a Grand Slam."


seriously

(my god these smilies suck, what is this 1992?)

I was thinking that as well. I don't think he'll win over any fans by making comments like this.

That's about why Denko will never be a great player and will never win a slam.

Davydenko doesn`t play tennis to win trophies and get the needed respect.He plays it to make money and give his wife his credit card.

Davydenko: I'm no Federer or Nadal

NOT Davydenko: ''federer and nadal have no life''

I hope this is only a mind game.

funk was better than rap.
techno not better than classic rock.

numbers are not everything.

Re: davydenko: ''federer and nadal have no life''

Apparently donkey is hinting at the fixing side of tennis which gives a better life and of which Rafa and Roger have no knowledge of.We all know he can never loose if he did think about tennis.This interview meanwhile has the Russian mafia mob written all over it.

Anyone who disputes any of this is a troll.

Re: davydenko: ''federer and nadal have no life''

People are reading too much into what seem to be just random, candid comments from a player.

"It's getting colder, I'm getting colder, older, it's getting colder...

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"

Re: davydenko: ''federer and nadal have no life''

Beating Fed and Nadal 2 times in a row made him big headed. It's a shame.

I think Fed and Nadal have a pretty good life, too.

Davy is only interested in match fixing. Verdasco to murder him off the court in straight sets.

Re: davydenko: ''federer and nadal have no life''

What a fucking moron. If Kolya had an ounce of charisma and an appealing style of play, then maybe he could make some endorsement $$ and he wouldn't have to grind it out all year on the road [poor Irina]. His life IS tennis ... the hard way.
