Lightbulb AO Rd4 (6) Davydenko def. (9)Verdasco 6-2 7-5 4-6 6-7 (5) 6-3

All I can say is wow what an ordinary match for a 5 setter. Thought Davydenko had it in the third.

Davydenko made no were near as many double faults as Verdasco. Davydenko 5 and Verdasco 20.

Davydenko had more fuel in the tank in the end I think.

Having both won tournaments very recently, this was a worthy match to watch.

Wow! Worst match of the decade! My goodness. Davydenko couldn't hit a forehand. Verdasco couldn't serve.

phew Kolya
just went to pieces in 3rd and 4th sets

a mug-fest of the highest degree

Kolya no where near what he does normally even in sets 1 & 2.

too big, kolya. playing like crap, not feeling comfy, dealing with frustrating moments and still getting away with the match.

Awful match. Koyla needs to play A LOT better if he wants any chance against Fed.

I thought most 5 setters were entertaining.

Nando made 20 DFs and 81 UEs and still managed to push his way to a 5-setter, that speaks volumes about Kolya



Mugathon of the highest degree, head to head with that horrible Monfils/Simon match of last year, though one of them had the decency to retire in 09

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

20 doublefaults. Normally that's only possible if you're borderline crippled and can't run (eg Dent at Wimbledon). Or on the WTA, of course.
