Cincy QF: Federer def. Davydenko 6-4 7-5

awesome shotmaking from both, the way Kolya saved the two first MP was absolutely brilliant, Roger's BH held remarkably well and his serve was pretty damn good except for that break in the second set



Fedal at the US Open Series is just around the corner

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

Fed did a great job capitalizing on the key points in the 1st set. And yeah...the shot making, as always with Davy (or usually ), was impressive.

Nice to see Kolya back in this kind of form. And good performance overall by Rog.

Davydenko saving his absolute best tennis for the first 3 MPs. Epic.

The first set was quality from both until the last game. Second set was a little more up and down.

It wouldn't be a Federer match these days without going up a break in the 2nd and then losing it.

Otherwise, Federer was in business mode tonight.

Kolya needs more time to get back to his best form.



David Goffin ♦ Roger Federer ♦ Mikhail Youzhny ♦ Dustin Brown ♦ Pierre-Hugues Herbert

Some excellent shots by the both players, this was indeed fun to watch.
Roger played clever on important points not giving much angles to Davydenko.
It should be strange to see him play 1/2 final vs Nadal.

Re: Cincy QF: Federer def. Davydenko 6-4 7-5

I was really hoping for a davy win here but at the same time i cant be to upset

davy did a hell of alot better then i expected. He made it competitive and didnt get blown away

perhaps the win over ferrer and this match here are the signs that davy is finally truly coming back

Very good effort from Davydenko considering last 5 months since wrist injury and only winning about 8 matches, but on his way back.

Nice to have Davy back playing some competent tennis. Maybe the QFs at the Open is a possibility.
